As autumn washes over coastal Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, the Seaside Knitters anticipate a relaxing off-season. But when murder shatters the peace, the craftiest bunch in town must unravel a killer’s deadly scheme . . .

After retrieving fresh lobster nets from a local Laundromat, Cass Halloran rushes to attend a last-minute gathering with her knitting circle. But Cass can’t stop worrying about the lonely boy seen hanging around the dryers, and the school uniform he left behind in a hurry. When the ladies return the lost clothing the next day, they find the child and his younger sister alone, seemingly abandoned by their mother . . .

The knitters intend to facilitate a family reunion, not investigate a crime. But the death of Dolores Cardozo, a recluse from the edge of town, throws the group for a loop. Especially when the missing mother and one of their own become tied to the victim’s hidden fortune—and her murder . . .

Before scandalous secrets break bonds and rumors tear Sea Harbor apart, the Seaside Knitters need to string together the truth about Dolores—while preventing a greedy murderer from making another move!

* Includes a knitting pattern *

Review of Murder Wears Mittens

Review (4 Stars): Murder Wears Mittens was a charming yet suspenseful mystery that was full of twists and turns for me.  I loved meeting this great group of characters and learning about their lives in this small community while trying to figure out who murdered Dolores Cardozo.  The secondary story involving a young mother and her two children was an interesting addition to this mystery and I liked how everything was wrapped up by the end of the story.

Even though this mystery is supposed to be the first in a series, it is actually a new installment of an existing series with a new publisher.  I was able to follow along just fine but I know that there are several readers out there who need to start at the very beginning so they know more about these characters.  With that said, Murder Wears Mittens was entertaining cozy mystery and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
