Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

It's time to stitch and sleuth with another Seaside Knitters mystery from Sally Goldenbaum. As usual, the members of the Sea Harbor sewing circle are absorbed as much in their small community as they are in their needlework. When the aunt of one of their friends takes an involuntary fatal drive off a cliff in her red Ferrari, the close-knit group put their yarn away and begin stitching together clues to this senseless homicide. The perfect bedtime cozy.

Publishers Weekly
In Goldenbaum's delightful third knitting mystery (after 2009's Patterns in the Sand), Izzy Chambers, proprietor of the Seaside Knitting Studio, and assorted knitting group friends gather for dinner at the Sea Harbor Yacht Club in Sea Harbor, Mass., to celebrate fund-raising efforts for the new community center and park. Special thanks are due two local construction companies, Santos and Delaney, which have been working together despite the uneasy relationship between the two families. The sudden appearance of drunken Julianne Santos, who threatens her brother, Alphonso, with a beer bottle, interrupts the dinner. Gracie, Julianne's daughter and the estranged wife of Joey Delaney, wishes she, Gracie, could disappear like Alice down the rabbit hole. Later that night, Alphonso's aloof, beautiful Argentinean wife drives her Ferrari off a cliff. Tampered brakes signal murder. Well-drawn characters and an intriguing plot lift this well above the average cozy. (May)

    This is a delightful entry in a fun regional mystery series.

    The Seaside Knitters (Nell, Izzy, Cass and Birdie) are taking time off from helping Gracie Santos open her new restaurant the Lazy Lobster and Soup Café on Pelican Pier in Sea Harbor, Massachusetts. They are attending a charity event at the Country Club where Gracie's Uncle Alphonso and his wife Sophia are joining with the Delaney's Construction Company to donate at cost materials to build an addition to the community center at Pelican Bay.

    Gracie's mother Julianne shows up at the gala and makes a scene because her brother, in charge of her trust, refuses to give her any more spending money at the urgency of Sophia.. When Sophia leaves her party she loses control of her car and dies in the crash. The police find evidence that the brake line was cut so they arrest Julianne when they find material in her vehicle on how to fix a car's brake line. The Seaside Knitters refuse to accept Julianne murdered her sister-in-law so they start their own investigation.

    Readers will thoroughly enjoy the third Seaside Knitters amateur sleuth (see Death by Cashmere and Patterns in the Sand) because of the diverse yet likable lead protagonists whose interests vary, but remain close friends. They come across as detectives as they make inquiries the same way they knit, one stitch at a time. The key that brings plausibility to the fine story line is they do their investigation without facing life threatening danger. This is a delightful entry in a fun regional mystery series.

    slow and little predictable

    this story was okay.....very predictable slow storyline....then the author throws all the good storyline at you in the last couple of chapters

    got so bored that i actually skipped to the ending....and i hate it that i had to do that

    skip this one and read the very first in this series! the first in series is usually the best one

    Excellent. Just like her others

    Sally G. really knows how to make the reader feel like they are in this tiny, seaside community as they are reading. Plus, youre usually shocked to find out the killer.

    Well-handled characters & compelling plot

    A modern-style cozy mystery that works: character developmt is present but minimized to the plot and mystery. An ezcellent read.

    Good social story

    I like the story/mystery however this writer tends to concentrate more on the exotic foods and the socializing than the knitting. The knitting group really plays a small role in the overall mystery. The group as a knitting group really do not have an active part. Their parts are disjointed and there really is no adventure for the knitters as a group. Recommend Anne Canadeo Series.
