    This was my first Seaside Knitters mystery I had difficulty getting into the story The beginning was very much about the characters and there are an abundance of characters Pages and pages of going around town and seeing people In fact there are so many characters in this novel that there is a multi page character index at the beginning of the book I referenced it uite a bit throughout the story And I discovered there were even a few characters missing from said indexOnce the murder happened the story did pick up There were some things that I was able to figure out and some bits that I didn't I enjoyed the overall conclusion I think if I had read others in this series the story may have started out as of a page turnerI received this book free from the Goodreads giveaways program first reads

    I really enjoy this series and how you get to know the characters a bit in depth with each new book In this installment there is a new gal in town and she is raising eyebrows and making friends everywhere Is she a visitor or is she a new resident that remains to be seen however as the new gal she is the one everyone is looking at when a longtime and beloved resident turns up dead A great plot with interesting subplotting to keep the story entertaining and entangled

  7. Linda Smatzny Linda Smatzny says:

    Julia Ainsley has recently come to Sea Harbor and is seen all over the town She is seen in deep conversations with Danny which causes problems with Cass However the knitters seem to like her even Cass so when she discovers a dead body the group know they have to help her In helping with solving a murder they also are solving the mystery that brought Julia to town The book was a uick easy read

    “Knitted Brows Purls of Wisdom With a Measure of Murder” As we travel back to Sandswept Lane we find there’s a lot going on in the cozy community of Sea Harbor Mass Nell and Ben Endicott’s 40th wedding anniversary is fast approaching and what they had hoped would be a uiet celebration with family and friends could get out of hand rather uickly with Mary Pisano at the helm The upcoming election for mayor is heating up with incumbent well respected Stan Hanson going up against political hopeful at least in her own mind Beatrice Scaglia who will explore every avenue in her bid for the mayoral seat But it’s not Beatrice who’s causing such a stir in this sleepy seaside town—but a beautiful newcomer named Julia “Jules” Ainsley She inserts herself into the Seaside Knitters’ lives charming all of their men much to Nell’s Izzy’s and Cass’s dismay She is not only beautiful but smart clever plus she knits and sails—but she is toting a boatload of emotional baggage with her Jules meets Author and Cass’s Boyfriend Danny Brandley at the Ocean’s Edge Bar and is scrutinized by usually friendly bartenderco owner Jeffrey Meara who keeps staring at her like he’s met her before Jules is confused by his actions and is further puzzled when he asks if she would meet him at 27 Ridge Road the cottage style house that Izzy used to live in before she married Sam Perry Jules is unexplainably drawn to the house and is interested in purchasing same so she decides to meet him before the realtor’s open house Jules travels to Ridge Road early hoping to get the mysterious meeting out of the way and beat any other possible buyers to the purchase When she arrives she discovers Jeffrey’s car is already parked out front Why would he be here so early? A short time later the usual Friday night dinner with friends on the Endicott’s deck is interrupted by a frantic call from Realtor Stella Palazola asking Ben and Sam to come to the house immediatelythey arrive only to find Jeffrey Meara’s lifeless body sprawled in the backyard Who would want to hurt never mind kill this amiable fellow who called most of the residents of Sea Harbor his friends? Sadly but not surprisingly Jules is on the top of the list of suspects How can she explain her visit to the area when she has no family or friends living here and has never been to Sea Harbor before? And the strange way she’s drawn to the cozy cottage? If she’s not the killer then who is? Perhaps Jeffrey’s partner in Ocean’s Edge Don Wooten who was not always happy with Jeffrey’s decisions? Maybe another disgruntled employee—or ex employee?Or bird watcherOcean’s Edge employee creepy Garrett Barros who lives next door to the crime scene? Will the killer be identified so that the residents can relax their fears and have the Anniversary Party go on without a hitch? Will Jules find the answers to the mysteries of the past? And in doing so who may be hurt in the process? Ms Goldenbaum has held us in suspense once again as she leads us down the zig zagged paths of mysterious crime and everlasting friendship As is true with her other volumes she has kindly included a list of characters for our referral and has graciously enclosed the knitting pattern designed specifically for “Murder in Merino” by the talented Cindy Craig for the Endicott’s ruby red anniversary afghan and a copy of the Seafood Salad that the “Seaside Knitters” often order at “Ocean’s Edge” There are “oceans” to enjoy with this book and the whole Seaside Knitters series If you haven’t had a chance to read them I highly suggest that you do although you do not have to start from the first volume to uickly become acuainted with this loving and caring group As for me I can’t wait to see what adventures they’ll be up to their knitting needles in next –I’m making room on my bookshelf—how about you?Nancy Narma

    Sally Goldenbaum continues her highly popular Seaside Knitters series with Murder in Merino Fans of the series have come to know and love the eclectic bunch of ladies who always seem to find themselves in the middle of another mystery From Izzy whose married and has a new baby to Nell who is getting ready to celebrate her 40th anniversary There is something for everyone in this series including a fantastic seaside town that provides the perfect backdrop for some serious amateur sleuthingWhat I likedThe Seaside Knitters series is one of my favorites Sally Goldenbaum has a way of incorporating the setting so completely into her writing that it takes on the characteristics of a character in her stories That isn't easily done but when an author is able to create that feeling it's sure to be a very atmospheric novel that will have readers thinking about it long after they've turned the last page Murder in Merino is definitely that kind of book I enjoyed the way that Goldenbaum made Sea Harbor come to life and how the sea was such a part of the town and it's inhabitants I don't think this book or series would have been nearly as good set anywhere else It makes me want to move to the coastIzzy isn't a typical cozy heroine by a long shot and to be honest when reading Goldenbaum's books I'm never completely sure which of the ladies is actually the main lead character I think they all share the spotlight in different books which makes this series very uniue because the view points shift and change with each new tale Izzy is the main focus of this particular story She has a husband and a beautiful baby and cottage she needs to get rid of and that is the catalyst for this novel I like the fact that Goldenbaum gives Izzy a family as well as the amateur sleuth bug It's unusual and gives the book an even homier feel than the setting and that's saying a lotWhen a body turns up in the backyard of the cottage suspicion turns to a new face in Sea Harbor a woman with no ties to the town who is obsessive about buying Izzy's cottage Jules is an outsider to this very close knit town and usually that's the kiss of death in most cozies but not this time I liked the fact that the outsider didn't become the victim but a suspect She provided a lot of angst and urgency in the book and it was interesting to watch each of the knitters try to rationalize her reasons for being there It just gave the mystery an air of secrecy I also enjoyed that this novel has a story within a story feel The story is about the current murder of a local but it ties back to the history of Sea Harbor itself and a long buried secret that has been hidden for years It not only gave the story a historical feel but it provided some great info for long time readers of the series about the town itself Sea Harbor is one of my all time favorite fictional towns and that was such a wonderful added bonusWhat I didn't likeSally Goldenbaum's books are always well written the pacing is good the characters are so deeply layered and have become like good friends throughout the series But I felt like Jules needed a little background She didn't feel as fleshed out as some of Goldbaum's characters and that took a little bit away from the novel but not much This one was still pretty greatBottom LineI can't possibly give this one less than a 5 because it was a very good read It had atmosphere it had exceptional characters a good plot line You can't ask for much with a good cozy I loved it
