Murder Wears Mittens by Sally Goldenbaum
Seaside Knitters Society #1
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!

Murder Wears Mittens by Sally Goldenbaum is the first book in the Seaside Knitters Society series, a continuation of the Seaside Knitters mystery series. I have only read one other book in this series, but I was easily able to get lost in the great mystery. The author does a wonderful job of beginning this ‘new’ series so that you can pick up right with this book and not feel lost. The characters are well-developed, the mystery keeps you guessing, and the setting sounds beautiful. It was a delight to read this mystery and I am looking forward to more. If you enjoy cozy mysteries with craft elements, you will enjoy this one as well. I’m hoping to go back and read earlier installments from the initial series.
About the Author
Sally Goldenbaum was born on the shores of Lake Michigan, in Manitowoc, WI, to a homemaker mother and a ship-building father. Although she now lives in landlocked Prairie Village, KS, her longing for lakes and the sea is satisfied in part by writing the USA Today bestselling Seaside Knitters Mystery series, set on Cape Ann, MA. She is a sometime philosophy teacher, a knitter, and an editor, and the author of more than thirty novels. Her fictional knitting friends are teaching her the intricacies of women’s friendship, the mysteries of small-town living, and the very best way to pick up dropped stitches on a lacy knit shawl.
