* Includes a knitting pattern * A mysterious woman arrives in picturesque Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, and the Seaside Knitters welcome her into their cozy world of intricate patterns and colorful skeins. Unfortunately, nothing frays a warm introduction like cold-blooded murder . . . With her shy manner and baggy jeans, Rose Chopra becomes an unlikely superhero the night she stumbles into Izzy Perry's shop and inadvertently saves a shipment of yarn from water damage. When the Seaside Knitters help the enigmatic handywoman settle into town and find work at a popular real estate company, Rose proves she can fix just about anything--until a potential homebuyer is killed and she becomes entangled in murder . . . The moment controversial entrepreneur Spencer Paxton is found dead in a pricey ocean-side house, accusations fly at the last person on the property--Rose. But the Seaside Knitters have their doubts. After all, Spencer's political aspirations as well as his company's plans to pave over Sea Harbor's historic art district with luxury apartments earned him some very real enemies . . . Now, Izzy, Birdie, Nell, and Cass must swap knitting for sleuthing as they struggle to move the needle on a twisted homicide case causing turmoil across town. As tensions build in the sleepy New England community and Rose's secret past unravels, the ladies face an unsettling realization--true victims aren't always the ones buried six feet under . . .

Review quote

Praise for How to Knit a Murder:

"Intricately plotted, suspense-filled and highly recommended." --Murray Ledger & Times "A quirky and colorful yarn." --Women's World Magazine (Book Club Pick of the Week) Praise for Sally Goldenbaum's previous mystery, Murder Wears Mittens: "Comforting.... 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." --Publishers Weekly

"Murder Wears Mittens is not another crime mystery like any other mystery. Sally Goldenbaum's characters feel for one another. It is a brilliantly written crime mystery, full of suspense and human warmth. Sally Goldenbaum knows how to monopolize your attention with her characters and writing style." --The Washington Book Review

"The Seaside Knitters go all out to solve another murder . . . This one keeps you guessing a bit longer than usual and features such caring sleuths you can't help but like them." --Kirkus Reviews
