To Knit a Murder, by Sally Goldenbaum, is book 2 in the Seaside Knitters Society cozy mystery series. I haven’t read book number 1, but have been able to follow the characters and story pretty well.

I have just gotten to the murder, and things are not looking so great for Rose Chopra and a few other characters in the book. The suspicions are being slowly built up. The reader is led to believe that Rose is not the murderer, but as we only saw her before and after the murder scene, we can’t be sure. Unless she is an unreliable narrator, she should be in the clear.

Rose’s backstory is being gradually revealed, but we don’t have the full story yet or everything that happened between her and the murder victim in the past.

This crafty cozy mystery makes a good palate cleanser after some of the grittier books I have read lately. It immerses you in the imaginary town of Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, creating a sense of warmth and community.

Have you read any of Sally Goldenbaum’s books?

What is your favorite crafty cozy series?

I will never live in you, house. Never. Bad things will happen there.
