Review: Needled to Death by Maggie Sefton

Needled to Death
Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry that it's been so long between posts! Life got super crazy there for a while. I'll explain a bit more about that in a bit, but first I wanted to go ahead and get another review posted :) I recently started Maggie Sefton's Knitting series and to be honest, I wasn't at all sure it'd be something I could get into at first because I know nothing about and have never had any interest in knitting. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that while knitting does play a part in the books, it doesn't overshadow the plot, characters, or any of the major elements. Needled to Death is the second book in the series. I enjoyed it immensely! The first book was really good, but this one, in my opinion, was even better. I was sucked in from very early on and could hardly put the book down until I was finished!

One of the things I liked was that there were a few new characters introduced in this book and there were also multiple locations that the characters traveled to which was fun for me. One character in particular, Jayleen, I am really hoping becomes a regular character because even though she had her flaws, I really love her character and am hoping to see more of her!

The biggest downside to this book for me was the fact that the murderer was, at least for me, highly predictable. I basically figured out that this person was the killer from very early on in the book, so while the rest of the book was certainly engrossing and enjoyable regardless, I was disappointed when I got to the end and found out that yes, my guess was right the entire time.

Still, that alone is not enough for me to subtract much from the score, so I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 and would highly recommend it and the entire series :)
