MAY READING LIST

I have finally gotten back into reading and I am so happy.  It took me five months to get here but now I make time to read more.  I still have some books out of the library so I'm rushing to get them finished.  Then I will start with books that I own and don't have to worry about a date due.

The book I finished was:
Dyer Consequences by Maggie Sefton.  It's book 5 in the Kelly Flynn knitting mysteries.  I like these because not only do you get a wonderful story, but a recipe and a knitting pattern.  And for once I didn't figure it out half-way through the book.  In fact I would not make a good detective because I decided it was someone else entirely.

Synopsis:
With spring finally on the way, it's time for the knitters of Fort Connor, Colorado, to start dreaming of warmer days to come -- and lay aside their wool in favor of cotton and silk.  But there's still a chill in the air, and Kelly Flynn is starting to think that some of the last icy daggers of winter may be pointed directly at her.
     Kelly has a spring project in mind that's a bit more involved than her usual scarves -- rehabbing the alpaca ranch she's just bought.  She and her guy, Steve, are eager to put the plans they've sketched out into motion.  But someone else has different ideas for keeping her busy, which seem to include slashing tires, cracking windshields, and covering the walls of her cottage with red paint.  Kelly's scared, but she's hoping it's just random vandalism.
     All that changes when House of Lambspun, the local knitting shop, is trashed and a young woman is found dead in the basement.  She's been hit on the head and drowned in a tub of dye.  Although it seems like a burglary gone wrong, Kelly suspects there is more to this story.  And as disturbing incidents continue to pile up, she knows she must try to pick up the stitches of these crimes before a killer strikes again.  But Kelly can't think what anyone at Lambspun could have done to invite such dyer consequences....
