*Review* Only Skein Deep by Maggie Sefton


In the latest novel from The New York Times bestselling author of Knit to Be Tied , Kelly Flynn and The Lambspun Knitters are eagerly awaiting a bundle of joy but find themselves heaped with trouble instead... 
Kelly Flynn and her boyfriend, Steve, couldn't be happier as they await the birth of their bouncing baby boy. Kelly's got a built-in group of fiber arts specialists, the Lambspun Knitters, who are working away on blankets and booties. As they sit around the table crafting their keepsakes, the story of Giselle Callahan is a popular topic of conversation. 
Giselle is the young wife of Henry Callahan, a Fort Connor banking scion, who traded in his previous wife of forty years for a newer model. Giselle's prowess as a skilled country club golfer and social climber puts her on someone's hit list. When she is found dead on the greens at the golf club, Kelly and her Lambspun crew worry that a vicious killer is in their midst. They must work fast to bring an unhinged murderer to justice on the back nine before Kelly's very special delivery... 

My Review:
2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately this book just was not for me. It took quite a while to finally get to the murder and even then, there wasn't very much discussion or looking into it going on. It felt like the majority of the book was just discussions about Kelly's pregnancy, the Lambspun shop, baby Jack's kicks feeling like he was playing soccer, and drinks that Kelly didn't like. Because of that, I found it really hard to keep my interest in the story and invest myself in the characters. I also wish there had been more talk of knitting. It's something I've taken an interest in lately and was hoping to learn a little more about it through this book.
