Seaside Knitter Birdie Favazza has long loved knitting, but lately she’s taken on a new challenge—making a family farm operational again. With help from friends, Lambswool Farm is now up and running, with thriving crops and grazing sheep. In addition, the farm will host rustic, six-course prix fixe dinners plated by local chefs and served on a gorgeous restored harvest table, decorated to perfection with colorful knitted vegetables crafted by Izzy Chambers Perry, her aunt Nell, and the other Seaside Knitters.
But on the night of the first meal, everything spins out of control when one of the guests, Seaside Harbor’s family physician, is found dead on the property. It seems that behind Dr. Alan Hamilton’s friendly bedside manner was a man worth killing.
Soon the town is gossiping and pointing fingers at all possible suspects—including the women at Lambswool Farm. Now the Seaside Knitters must join together to uncover the truth in Dr. Hamilton’s complicated past—and restore peace to town and country alike.
I’ve read a number of Ms Goldenbaum’s books over the years and have enjoyed them all. This book reaches new heights in the way her characters act and how much effort they put into solving a mystery that involves the happiness of the entire community.
I haven’t done much blogging this last year or so but this book is bringing the words back into my fingers. The stranger who comes to town out of nowhere, who spends his time investigating the town and the people in it. The guileless way he appears to talk to people and make friends. All this and more make Murder at Lambswool Farm the BEST in the series. I strongly suggest reading it if you love mystery stories.
