Publisher's Summary

It’s autumn in Sea Harbor, and as the tourists leave, a mysterious guest arrives. When she’s implicated in a crime, the Seaside Knitters must quickly table their knitting project and search out a motif for murder.

Fall is usually a relaxing time in Sea Harbor, but it’s turning out to be a busy season for Izzy Chambers Perry. Not only is she helping the Seaside Knitters make a magnificent throw to celebrate the 40th wedding anniversary of her aunt and uncle, but she and her husband are finally selling the cottage she lived in before she got married and had a darling baby girl. To Izzy’s surprise, newcomer Julia Ainsley seems determined to buy the home - although she’s never set foot inside.

But on the day of the open house, things take a dark turn. A body is uncovered in the cottage’s backyard. When the police find Julia’s name and phone number in the victim’s pocket, this slender thread of evidence makes her a person of interest. Soon the spotlight of suspicion widens to include old friends and town leaders as a tragic happening, long buried in the sleepy seaside town, is slowly brought to the surface.

Before the joyful anniversary celebration can be realized, the Seaside Knitters must work to unravel the real reason Julia Ainsley has come to their town - and the tangled and troubled ties from the past that bind friends and townsfolk together.

Not hard to figure out

It didn't take long to figure out what was happening in this book. It was all pretty obvious. Nell is still really annoying & almost ruined the book a few times being nosy and pretentious. But overall this one fell flat. Each book in this series has a new random stranger come to town, then a murder, then a found link to a townsfolk who was responsible. Each and every book follows that same format, and it just got old. There is nothing new to be had here, and it didn't take too long to know "who" Jules was.

Another Well Written Delight!

What did you love best about Murder in Merino?

Sally Goldenbaum is not a raucous voice in mystery writing. Her mysteries involve intrigue and deception, with a loveable group of women of all ages who knit together. As her characters try cables, lace, sweaters, her story of this group and how the intrigue fits their lives, envelops you in a ozy shawl of delight.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder in Merino?

The feel of her words as they flow, is always a treat. This book is outstanding in character development, and intrigue.

What about Julie McKay’s performance did you like?

She reads Sally's books in a style I embrace. It's measured, not overdone and realistic.

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

Character development

Any additional comments?

No ums, no, "saids," as in, she said. You know who is speaking and why without the distraction of abruptly pointing you to the speaker. Sally's characters don't need, "Nell said," to know Nell is speaking. It is always obvious and never breaks the delicate rhythm of the suspension of disbelief to embrace the book. Her writing style is well honed and delightful, at the same time, filled with the rhythm of people you know, and believe.

Another great mystery

Sally Goldenbaum is amazing! I loved this book and after listening to the others that proceeded it have gotten to know the characters. She does a great job twin ring the story around so you can't figure it out until the end.
The narration was done perfectly bring life to the characters pictured in my mind as the story was told. Bravo!!!

Why

Why did I buy this book? I hate knitted garments and refuse to sit around with a knitter. Predictable waste of a good subject. I knew she was someone's daughter the minute she hit the scene.
