    "Give us more Sefton"

    I have read all of Maggie Sefton's 'cozy mysteries', which serve up a view of the Colorado countryside, small town life, the knitting culture and telecommuter craze. Please give us more!

    "Knit One Kill Two: A Knitting Mystery, Book 1"

    I agree- give us more Sefton!! Ms. Sefton's mysteries are very easy reading and listening, but at the same time keeps one guessing. All of her books are very descriptive especially her "Knitting" series. As a knitter I wish I could find a shop like the one she describes. I especially like the reader and look for her narration in choosing an audible.
    Pease obtain series 2 through 8. I've already contacted Audible and received a prompt reply as to why only two have been read. Please keep trying to get the publisher to release more.

    "I love this cozy mystery"

    I have all Ms. Steftons books, and they translated to audio perfectly. How can a murder mystery make me feel so calm? The discription of the yarn, the colors and the beauty she see's in the mountain's, the sky. I love them and cant waite for more to come on audio!!

    "Simple and monotonous"
    What disappointed you about Knit One, Kill Two?

    Details were repeated too many times. Multiple characters but not very interesting. The story was not very interesting.


    Has Knit One, Kill Two turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Could be good book - needs more development

    Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.

    Finally finished. Painfully slow. Not my style. Only interesting parts were last two chapters.

    Story
    "A pleasant, fun "read" - if somewhat predictable"
    Would you listen to Knit One, Kill Two again? Why?

    Yes. Performance was pleasant and not overly affected. Characters were genial.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Maggie Sefton? Why or why not?

    I'd love to have more of this series on audible (currently skips from book 1 to book 9, and not searchable as a series), and I'd love to see her other series on audible, too. This is exactly the kind of book I enjoy listening to, since the only way I make time for mysteries is multi-tasking (listening while cleaning house, for example).

    Story
    "Quick Listen, Familiar For A Beginner Knitter"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I feel like this book was worth maybe half a credit. It was a quick, easy listen. The narrator wasn't boring at all, and experiencing the main character learning how to knit was comforting to me as I am new to knitting as well. I felt some of the same trepidation and excitement she did about learning to knit and purl. The story was simple, though, and, at times some of the dialogue seemed too neat and didn't flow well.


    Do you think Knit One, Kill Two needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I think the story stands alone fairly well. I'm not really interested in finding out more about the characters or what else happens to them in the future. They were entertaining during the story, but I don't really feel like I care about them enough to pursue more of a relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    This would probably be a good, light beach read, but I wouldn't recommend it if you want something to really challenge your mind and completely consume you the whole way through.

    Story
    "Wishful Thinking"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes - if they did not own a dog..... I found the entire parts of the dogs involvement beyond disgusting. Especially for that noble breed.


    Would you recommend Knit One, Kill Two to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes & No. It has some great fun, but again gets caught up in "mainstream" or rather what society expects today.
    I would love to find a book again that is not only interesting, but leaves me on the edge of my seat until solved smoothly.


    What about Jane Jacobs’s performance did you like?

    Nothing stands out - I am sorry.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hmmmm. I found little truth about knitting - and that alone saddens me.


    Any additional comments?

    Glad I read it, not sure if I will listen to it again.

    "This was a very slow book and boring."
    Would you try another book from Maggie Sefton and/or Jane Jacobs?

    Probably not, unless I read some better reviews about her other books. Because I love cozy mysteries.


    What was most disappointing about Maggie Sefton’s story?

    I just could not get in to the book.


    What didn’t you like about Jane Jacobs’s performance?

    It felt flat and boring.


    Any additional comments?

    I love cozy mysteries and if anybody has any good suggestions I would be grateful. I was hoping this was going to be a good series, I hope I'm wrong.

    Story
    "Don't know if it's the author or the narrator"

    It could be both. One good thing, I knew from the beginning who did it and I was wrong. I enjoyed the knitting background, I enjoyed the picture of Colorado, but somehow it just wasn't satisfying. This isn't a very useful review because I can't define it. Either the dialogue was stupid or narration made it sound stupid and I can't tell you which, but it was unsatisfactory. I liked the Carl the Rottweiler, he's a great character with his golf ball filching ways, but I have to imagine that he's grown to this great hulking dog living in a condo in Washington DC with a CPA? They don't usually have a lot of spare time, maybe he went to doggie day care every day so that he didn't grow up neurotic. That's a small thing, but it's symptomatic of the way the story just didin't fall together for me. Maybe this was her first novel and they get better?
