Overview


Prepare for more knitting, murder, and mayhem with the next in the national bestselling Seaside Knitters mystery series. Autumn brings a mysterious new guest to Sea Harbor, and when she’s implicated in a crime, it’s up to the Seaside Knitters to search out a motif for murder.

It’s a busy fall for Izzy Chambers Perry. Not only is she helping the Knitters make a throw to celebrate her aunt and uncle’s fortieth wedding anniversary, she’s finally selling the cottage she lived in before she got married. Luckily, newcomer Julia Ainsley wants to buy the home—although, strangely, she’s never been inside.

Then on the day of the open house, a body is uncovered in the cottage’s backyard. Julia’s name and phone number, found in the victim’s pocket, instantly make her a person of interest. Soon, though, the spotlight of suspicion widens to include old friends and town leaders, as a tragic happening, long buried, slowly surfaces.

Now, before the anniversary celebration can occur, the Seaside Knitters must unravel the real reason Julia has come to town—and untangle the troubled ties from the past that bind friends and townsfolk together.

The satisfying ninth Seaside Knitters cozy (after 2013’s Angora Alibi) from Goldenbaum has the knitters of Sea Harbor, Mass., planning a gala and gift for the 40th wedding anniversary of member Nell Endicott and her husband, Don. In the meantime, the Endicotts’ niece, Isabel “Izzy” Chambers Perry, and her husband, Sam, are putting Izzy’s old cottage home on the market. Newcomer Julia “Jules” Ainsley puzzles the community when she reveals her determination to buy the cottage, sight unseen, despite having no previous connection to Sea Harbor. When a murder victim is found in the cottage’s backyard, Jules becomes a suspect. Gradually, the knitters realize the killing has its roots in a long-buried town secret. Fans of previous entries will enjoy spending a few more hours with the Seaside Knitters, and the most dedicated might be inspired to reproduce the group’s special anniversary afghan, or their Friday-evening martini parties. Agent: Christina Hogrebe, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (May)
