Synopsis

Readers can't help but get entangled in this USA Today bestselling series.

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.

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.

the characters and the setting will more than make up for any lack of suspense. Even in the summer heat there is plenty of knitting talk and even a sweater pattern at the end of the book.

The author makes her characters come alive as they stand up for each other and are fast friends throughout. Readers will enjoy this tale and come to know the knitters and the people in this little town that comes into its own in the summertime when the tourists invade and in the winter months when they are pretty much left alone

The plot has its layers and red herrings, as Nell peels away the deceptions, looking into what happened to Finnegan. There are subtle clues dropped that, like any good mystery, if you look back, you put them together.
