The follow-up to Death by Cashmere: next in the "appealing" (Carolyn Hart, author of Death Walked In) new mystery series set in a tight-knit seaside community.
When young fiber artist Willow Adams visits Izzy Chambers' knitting studio, she's immediately embraced by the Seaside knitters, and they see the monthly arts event at Canary Cove as a perfect place to showcase Willow's work. But the idyllic summer in Sea Harbor turns somber when the body of Nick Peabody - owner of a popular gallery - is found in a garden. Soon Nick's secrets begin to surface, and the residents of Sea Harbor realize they didn't know him at all. And when Nick's will reveals that his entire estate has been left to Willow, the knitters find that Willow has some dark secrets of her own....

"Much better character development!"
Note to Audible: the summary says the man who dies is named Nick Peabody. However, the mans name is Aiden Peabody.
Review: this second book is MUCH better than book 1. The character development really took off & it was enjoyable to be back with the investigative gang. Of all the characters, I would say it centers most around Nelle, who is an older woman. My only qualm is the end.. the mystery of the killer could have been solved without outing a certain character for being a fraud.. I wish she didn't do that. But otherwise she's likable. The narration is great, each character is very identifiable by their voice which is important when you have a lot of characters such as in this book. I look forward to book 3!
"Needs more research in fiber related arts & crafts"
The mystery portions of the authors books are interesting enough but the yarn/knitting/fiber aspects are shallow. I'm still wondering what "fine handwoven yarn" is. You use yarn for hand weaving, you don't hand weave yarn. Most fine yarn is machine spun as hand spinning fiber into a super fine yarn would be too time consuming to allow time to knit it.
I suspect the author has no clue what fiber art is as there was never anything but the vaguest description of the "fiber artist's" creations. There is more specific detail about restaurants and food than anything to do with fiber, yarn or knitting. If you pick a backdrop for a mystery series such as a yarn store and knitting specialty you should know more about it. It's distracting to the reader when the lack of knowledge is so obvious.
Love this series. Great plots and wonderfully quirky characters that just seem to keep growing. All tied up in the bow of a terrific narrator that you could listen to all day with ease
What a great book! Once again the author kept me guessing until the end! The narrator did a fantastic job as well. Highly recommend this one for all the mystery readers out there.
"Pretty good, but too much food described!"
No. OK light story, but probably not for a second listen. Still, passed the time for me.
No, but that's ok.
Haven't listened to any others.
They describe eating and drinking way too much for my taste.
I thought I had the murderer figured out! I was wrong, surprise ending! Loved it!
I like them all, but I would love to have Nell as my friend! I'm very curious to see what Willow does with her new life, I hope she continues to be a main character in the series!
"Kept my interest, cozy mystery"
The story line was good, plot kept my interest, had a few twists.
Overall, an enjoyable read.
N/A - Not me. I don't like films from books, the books are always way better.
