I very much enjoyed this novel, which is in the wonderful series, "A Seaside Knitters Mystery." One of the reasons I enjoyed the story is that the author continually connects the art of knitting with the weaving of her story line.
Knit shop owner, Izzy Chambers Perry, is expecting her first child. The previous nine months has been full of love, happiness, and calmness. Suddenly there is a jarring note to her life, a babies car seat and tattered yellow blanket, sitting day by day at the Cove. Finally, Izzy picks it up and throws it in her car trunk...setting off everything from attempted car theft to murder!
The seaside community of Sea Harbor, Mass. is shaken to it's core when teenager, Justin is found murdered. Justin had worked odd jobs, and Izzy had just seen him at her OB/GYN's office as she went in for her weekly visit. Justin was a happy go lucky guy who would do anything for a dollar or two. Recently, he seemed to have hit gold and was spreading his wealth around. However, there were those that despised his very being...why?
Issy feels her baby cannot be born until Sea Harbor regains it's sea legs. Her fellow knitter's and family all join together to knit the community back together.
This was an excellent read for cozy murder mystery fans. There is also a bonus of a baby blanket pattern and a lovely Tuna recipe at the ending.
