From Publishers Weekly
Izzy Chambers gives up her life as a lawyer in Boston in order to open the Seaside Knitting Studio in Sea Harbor, Mass., where she spent her childhood, in Goldenbaum's charming debut. An informal knitting group of eccentric characters forms around the shop, including Birdie Favazza, the oldest member at nearly 80, and Cass Halloran, the owner of 200 lobster traps who's devastated by a midnight theft. Cass's younger brother, Pete, pines for the gorgeous Angelina Archer, who's recently come to the Cape to research a local history project and rents the apartment above Izzy's store. When Angelina's body washes up in the cove, Izzy and her knitting group vow to discover who hated Angelina enough to want the woman dead. A knitting pattern for a scarf rounds out a cozy many will find an ideal beach read. (Aug.)

an energy that defies their being stereotypic. In this particular mystery, the plot has its twists so that you are contemplating the possibility of more than just a couple of potential killers in the midst of the generally bucolic fishing village. That's always a good thing, so the reader doesn't feel as if
a plot is nothing more than a story line that is jumbled. There is method in this madness! And the colors and textures of the yarn sold in the shop are as vivid as the characters themselves. These are delightful stories that are well thought out; you do empathize with the main characters and are happy with the ending, even tho' it's not necessarily the evil doer whom we'd choose. And that's life, as well.
If you like a good mystery, this is for you. Izzy, Nell, Birdie, and Cass feel genuine and real; small close knit town relationships that still hold some surprises. And the knit pattern at the end is bonus. I crochet but I might just try the pattern: there are enough knitters in the group I belong to that would be happy to assist me. Or covert it to crochet ... Just need to find the yarn!
Get the book. Read. Enjoy and have fun. I know I'm looking forward to the next book in the Seaside Knitters series.
