Teaser Tuesday 367: Needled to Death

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week’s teaser is from Needled to Death by Maggie Sefton.

Series: Knitting Mystery #2

Now that she’s been knitting up a storm with the help of her new friends at House of Lambspun, Kelly Flynn can’t imagine ever leaving Fort Connor, Colorado. But there’s trouble in her adopted hometown—and not just with her new sweater project.

When Kelly volunteers to take a troop of tourists to visit Vickie Claymore’s alpaca farm, she discovers Fort Connor isn’t as sedate as it seems. Instead of a warm welcome, they find Vickie splayed out on her original hand-woven rug, her blood seeping into the design . . .

The police jump on the case, but Kelly can’t resist doing a little investigative work of her won—even if it means taking a break from the sweater she’s been knitting in the round. Because a murderer is lurking in Fort Connor—waiting for the right moment to strike again . . .
