Yarn over murder was about who your true friends really are even in the face of an uncertain future. The Fort Connor, Colorado wildfires are raging and author Maggie Sefton characters friendships and true love for each other shines through when they are faced with their friend, Jayleen's having to evacuate her ranch because of  wildfires are spreading. It's a mad rush to get Jayleen's animals, her alpaca's and her posessions to safety but danger is not far behind when a murder occurs.

They head to a friend who owns a pasture nearby, her name is Andrea and she agrees to let Jayleen store her alpacas there for the time being. When a argument ensues between Connie a life long knitter and employee at Mother Mimi's House of Lambspun and Andrea. Connie wants her husband back and she acuses Andrea of stealing him away.

Andrea is soon found dead at the bottom of her steep stairs at her ranch but with all the police and firefighters attention on the wildfires her death is put on the back burner. When the police start looking into Andrea's death they discover all is not what it seems. When Kelly, accountant and friend of Mother Mimi at House of Lambspun starts her own investigation when Connie is suspected of Andrea's murder, it's all like a soap opera playing out and a love triangle that turns deadly.

A touching and heartfelt edition to this series. This was a fictional story but based on a real true life wild fire. With all to real and genuine characters and you can't help but hope for the best for these close knit friends in the face of an uncertain future they are up against.  My only struggle was relating to the characters that I found I had nothing in common with any of them but my heart went out to Jayleen and to Andrea and to Kelly to finding the killer with her unrelentless sleuthing. Maggie Sefton sets the tone for this emotionally charged mystery for knitting lovers.
