Publisher's Weekly Review

When unassuming Dolores Cardozo is found dead in her home and single-mom Kayla Stewart vanishes, the Seaside Knitters-Cass Halloran, Izzy Perry, Nell Endicott, and Birdie Favazza-shift into sleuthing mode, in Goldenbaum's comforting 12th cozy set in Sea Harbor, Mass. (after 2016's Murder at Lambswool Farm). The four friends discover some unsuspected truths in the course of investigating Dolores's murder and figuring out what happened to Kayla. Meanwhile, they take time to enjoy a martini, a glass of champagne, or just a nice cup of coffee. As usual, the mystery element is slight, with clues doled out in between family reunions, meals, and walks on the beach. Goldenbaum has created an idyllic world in which good friends, good works, and discussing the passing of time and changes in the community are as important as solving crimes. A knitting pattern for socks rounds out the volume. Agents: Christina Hogrebe and Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
