Death by Cashmere: Seaside Knitters, Book 1

Not long after Isabel "Izzy" Chambers opens up a knitting shop in the sleepy fishing town of Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, a diverse group of women begins congregating each week to form the Seaside Knitters. Izzy raises some eyebrows when she rents the apartment above her shop to Angie Archer, whose reputation for loose behavior and a quick temper has made her unpopular with many locals. But could any of them have wanted her dead? Angie's body is discovered drowned in the harbor, her long red hair tangled like seaweed in a lobster trap.

Publisher's Summary

The new mystery series that spins a yarn about knitters and murder in a seaside village.

Not long after Isabel "Izzy" Chambers opens up a knitting shop in the sleepy fishing town of Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, a diverse group of women begins congregating each week to form the Seaside Knitters.

Izzy raises some eyebrows when she rents the apartment above her shop to Angie Archer, whose reputation for loose behavior and a quick temper has made her unpopular with many locals. But could any of them have wanted her dead? Angie's body is discovered drowned in the harbor, her long red hair tangled like seaweed in a lobster trap.

An official investigation rules the death an accident. There are speculations of too many whiskey sours, a slippery wharf, a dark night... But Izzy and the Seaside Knitters smell something fishy. When several strange incidents occur above the shop, the women decide to take matters into their own hands. But before long, their small-town sense of security is frayed, and the threat of more violence hangs over this tightly knit community...

    "Good storyline kept me listening."
    What did you love best about Death by Cashmere?

    The beautiful visual description and details given to the scenes and characters garments allowed me to picture everything in a colorful way.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This was not a thriller but it did keep my attention, not on edge.


    What about Julie McKay’s performance did you like?

    Julie McKay was great, her voice made it easy to follow each characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book was easy to stop and pick back up which I like.


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased the series because I enjoyed the girlie sleuth storyline.

    "Fun series!"
    Where does Death by Cashmere rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm a knitter, and I meet with friends in our local yarn shop weekly, so I can really understand the relationship of the group!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to listening to the complete series!

    "Blah"
    Would you try another book from Sally Goldenbaum and/or Julie McKay?

    The story was barely OK, too slow. I might read/listen to another book, but I won't purchase it.I was very annoyed by the inconsistant volume level in parts. Had to pull my earbuds out too often because the voices got much louder.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sally Goldenbaum? Why or why not?

    No, it didn't hold my interest - almost didn't finish it.


    What three words best describe Julie McKay’s performance?

    Droning, inconsistant, forgettable.


    Could you see Death by Cashmere being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, too hum-drum.


    Any additional comments?

    Why wasn't the knitting store owner the main character? A little misleading!

    "Lost a credit on this one"

    The narrator had a nice voice, but I am not sure if it was her performance or just the story that was disappointing. I have a feeling it was both. I generally like books that incorporate the yarn hobby, but this one didn't seem to have a character to like nor a character to hate. The killer came out of left field and I don't remember a good setup. I had no desire to try to predict the killer like I do in other mysteries. That means there wasn't anything to go on to spur my interaction with the story. I didn't like the overabundance of descriptions. It didn't make me feel like I was there or visualize the scene, it felt like unnecessary bloat. I was very disappointed because I’ve wanted to read this series for a very long time. I must not click with the author - I am sure there are those who do.
