Overview

Holiday time is magical in Sea Harbor, as the Seaside Knitters turn winter yarns of deep reds, greens, and golds into gifts. But when murder comes to this small New England town, they must set aside their needles to pursue justice—and restore joy to the season.
 
In Sea Harbor the scent of snow fills the salty air, and at Izzy’s Seaside Yarn Studio, the Knitters feast on cookies, knit their gifts, and plan their holiday gatherings. Across town, Mary Pisano is sparing no expense to transform the estate she inherited from her grandfather into a bed-and-breakfast. When the Pisano family gathers for their annual meeting, Mary offers to put up her cousins in the refurbished family home, hoping to dispel any ill will over her inheriting the estate. But hard feelings are likely the cause when Mary’s cousin Pamela is found dead on the B and B’s snowy back porch.
 
While the Seaside Knitters begin unraveling the case, Izzy Chambers is knitting her brow over her own mystery—the mystery of love. As the holiday draws nigh, the four friends will need all their crafty know-how to solve the crime and restore holiday peace—and the magic of mistletoe—to Sea Harbor.

I'm a knitter & a mystery lover. It's light reading with that warm feeling of being a part of the knitting bunch at the seaside as they solve yet another murder in their community. It's a great way to unwind after a day of work.

The fourth Seaside Knitters mystery is written from the point of Nell Endicott, aunt of Izzy Chambers who owns the Seaside Knitting Studio. The Knitters have been helping Mary Pisano turn the estate she inherited from her grandfater into a bed-and-breakfast inn.The wealthy Pisanos have been having a family meeting in Sea Harbor, and Mary's cousin Pamela is quite vocal about considering the inn a bad idea. Shortly after declaring this opinion all over Sea Harbor, Pamela is found dead, holding a pistol, outside Mary's house.Sea Harbor is a charming, enviably close-knit community, and this is an engaging story with more than one mystery to challenge the reader. (Why is> Henrietta O'Neal so against the opening of the inn?) Be careful not to start this book at bedtime!

The Christmas season has unraveled in Sea Harbor and then a murder casts a damper on the town¿s yuletide festivities. The editor for a fashion magazine is found murdered in the snow at a bread and breakfast inn belonging to her grandfather. Pamela Pisano is beautiful and talented, but a lousy person. Still, Pamela does not deserve her violent death. The Seaside Knitters must act fast to solve the murder and to salvage the town's holiday cheer. Goldenbaum delights in showing the different ages of love and dispelling the notion that love is just for the young. Again, Goldenbaum does not write a graphic murder or explicit sex novel. She rests on that gentle yarn in which friendship and love triumph. I would love to see a map of the Sea Harbor community.

I started with the first book in the series and am reading my way through. I am savoring each book as it is more about the relationships between 4 key female characters, their loves and experiences, as well as at least one, often two murders to solve. Lovely descriptions of yarns and knitting which are realistic for those of us who do knit. Fantastic details about the food the women and their friends eat (and never seem to gain a pound!) as well as the men in their lives. If anything, the men are too perfect, the food is too good (and calorie-free), but it's still fun and I chalk this series up as a guilty pleasure.

I enjoyed this series, it was cute. It seems they talked more about eating than knitting and their food is way out. I live in a small New England town and never saw that kind of food except in big cities. The story line is good and can't figure out who did it till the end.

I have been reading these in order and this one is better than the last! Of course I've said that before with the other books. You come to care about the characters and wonder how they'll figure this one out. I've enjoyed all of them so far, but again, this was the best yet. I plan to keep reading her, she's great!

Words cannot say how much I love Sally Goldenbaum. She's a great author who does wonders to make you feel like you live in the seaside knitting community. I truly feel on vacation when I'm reading these murder/mysteries.
