Late summer blooms in beautiful Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, and while a harvest thrives, Izzy Chambers Perry and the other Seaside Knitters will need to cast on their sleuthing skills to save a local farm. Unfortunately, finding a killer can be like looking for a needle in a haystack....
Seaside Knitter Birdie Favazza has long loved knitting, but lately she's taken on a new challenge: making a family farm operational again. With help from friends, Lambswool Farm is now up and running, with thriving crops and grazing sheep. In addition the farm will host rustic, six-course prix fixe dinners plated by local chefs and served on a gorgeous restored harvest table, decorated to perfection with colorful knitted vegetables crafted by Izzy Chambers Perry, her aunt Nell, and the other Seaside Knitters.
But on the night of the first meal, everything spins out of control when one of the guests, Seaside Harbor's family physician, becomes fatally ill. It seems that behind Dr. Alan Hamilton's friendly bedside manner was a man with enemies and secrets.
Soon the town is gossiping and pointing fingers at all possible suspects - including the women at Lambswool Farm. Now the Seaside Knitters must join together to uncover the truth in Dr. Hamilton's complicated past - and restore peace to town and country alike.

I wasn't able to listen to this book because the narrator was so bad.
I'm sure I would have liked the story, but I simply could not listen to this performance.
Her attempt to create different voices for these characters
I have read all the other books in this series and was looking forward to this one. Unfortunately I will have to wait to get a copy from the library. I wasted money on this -and waited too long to return it for a refund.
Although the writing is, at times, quite good, the story often drags. The reader has a soap opera approach that I found more annoying than helpful. I think he is attempting to heighten the drama. I did not appreciate it, since it mostly made the book go more slowly.
I really didn't "not enjoy" any thing. As in other books, some times the author goes on and on in her descriptions or a character's musings, but it did not detract in this story. I've read almost all of the rest of the series, and this may be about the best yet.
