All that was missing from the end was the killer saying "I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling kids!"
I was hooked, no pun intended, right up until The end. I like the characters and I liked the setting of the knitting shop and Colorado. I was tempted to put the book down and pick up my knitting needles to finish my scarf projects. The ending fell flat for me because there was no sort of epilogue to tell you if Kelly was either going to stay or go. Also, what would go on with Mimi and her shop? One can only assume until the get their hands on the next book that all is well and everything goes back to normal.
