Overview

This summer in Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, one of the Seaside Knitters gets tangled up with a precocious granddaughter, and another stands accused of sending a local resident on a permanent vacation…

As Izzy and the Seaside Knitters prepare her yarn studio for the tourist season, fellow knitter Birdie Favazza has her hands full with her granddaughter Gabby. The little girl soon becomes a fixture in the town and even strikes up a friendship with a reclusive local fisherman, Finnegan, who is the source of much local turbulence.

Then lobsterwoman Cass Halloran stumbles over the old fisherman—his body covered with leaves and sea grass and wearing the yellow fleece vest she once made for him. When Cass becomes a suspect in his murder the Knitters must rally to protect their friend.

Soon the Seaside Knitters will discover that caring for Gabby while casting their net for a killer is a tricky business, indeed. They’ll have to keep their wits about them as they piece together the clues…or one of their own will wind up knitting behind bars.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Near the start of Goldenbaum’s beguiling sixth knitting cozy set in Sea Harbor, Mass. (after 2011’s The Wedding Shawl), Birdie Favazza, grand dame of the Seaside Knitters, receives a surprise visit from her deceased husband’s brother, who’s accompanied by a granddaughter of Birdie’s she didn’t know existed, precocious 10-year-old Gabby Marietti. Gabby charms the whole town, but especially Finnegan, a reclusive, obstinate old fisherman living on valuable waterfront land that he has let go wild since his beloved wife’s death. When someone slashes Finnegan’s throat with a fishing knife, the people of the town hope that the killer was an argumentative vagrant, but the many locals who might have had an interest in Finn’s land become suspects. Goldenbaum offers credible characters, a mystery that’s uncomplicated without being too obvious, and the knitting content her fans demand in a very readable package. Agents: Christina Hogrebe and Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (May)
Kirkus Reviews
Yet another homicide disturbs the peace of lovely Sea Harbor, Mass. Semi-retired Nell Endicott; her niece Izzy Perry, newly married owner of a knitting shop; lobster fisherwoman Cass Halloran; and wealthy, generous older lady Birdie Favazza are the Seaside Knitters. Despite their age differences and disparate lifestyles, these ladies are close friends with an impressive track record for solving murders (The Wedding Shawl, 2011, etc.). This time they get involved in the death of Finnegan, an old friend who owns a great piece of seaside property he's let go to seed since the death of his beloved wife, Moira. Many are fed up with the waist-high weeds and decrepit buildings, but Finnegan refuses to sell. Lately he's taken Gabby Marietti, Birdie's newly discovered granddaughter, under his wing while ignoring his own daughter Beverly, an artist who's recently returned to town. So many people are after Finnegan's property that when he's found murdered, there's a long list of suspects: Beverly, who expected to inherit; Gabby's uncle, who's seen sneaking onto the property; a builder who's been outspoken in his efforts to get the land; and even Cass, the surprise beneficiary of Finnegan's will. The knitters must use all their skills and local knowledge to solve a case that cuts too close to home. Another enjoyable visit with the ladies. The mystery may not be very challenging, but there's lazy seaside charm, food tips and the obligatory knitting project for those so inclined.

    Highly Recommended

    The endearing characters keep you coming back for more.

    The town of Sea Harbor is the type of town everyone longs to experience.

    Ideal character development makes the story flow effortlessly.

    A great yarn!

    Not the most eriudite mystery I've ever read, but the characters are endearing and the setting is wonderful and makes me homesick for the water. This is the second I have read in the series and look foward to others

    Just so-so

    I just couldn't get very excited about this story. It was slow paced and not too interesting.

    buy if you are into the series

    I enjoy 'themed' plots especially in crafting but with this author I knew who the killer was halfway through the book, not only with this one, but with her previous two books in the series. She really needs to vary her plots.

    Must read-continuing saga

    Didn't read any promotion for this book because I want & need to find out what my favorite bunch of busybodies are doing along with a little whodunit. Not disappointed at all.
