I don't know how I missed your series!! I love reading knitting mysteries, because I am an avid knitter and crocheter!! I tend to gravitate to this type of genre. As for photographs, I don't like to have mine taken, because I tend to be a certain age in my mind, feel a different age, which is younger, in the mirror, and when I see myself in a photo, it's like a bit of a wake-up call, and gets depressing!! I always tell myself that I look like heck, but with stronger language, and stay away from the camera for a while, while re-inventing my look!! lol I think you took wonderful photos, and would never guess that you were a Grandma!! Can't wait to read your books, and Congratulations on your latest book!!
I have to agree with you about photos. I'm never pleased with any of myself. I always seem to find something wrong with them. I only remember one that was taken quickly just to use up the rest of a roll of film one afternoon, and it was one of the best photos ever of me holding my little dog. I looked about 25 lbs. thinner in it, and don't know how that happened. My youngest son liked it so well, he framed it and keeps it on his desk! I enjoy both knitting and crocheting so I know I'd enjoy reading your series very much. The covers are all so colorful, attractive and beautiful! New babies are such a joy for grandparents...my oldest son just had his first...twins, a boy and a girl. He didn't think he'd ever have any. Guess, it's true that good things come to those who wait!
I admit I am the picture taker in my family. I think it's because I really don't see myself as the camera does and I don't want to be forced to see the truth(a mirror can be ignored because it's only a brief look, without my glasses. LOL)I am not a grandmother though I do hope that someday I will have that pleasure and take lots of pictures. I can't knit but I do crochet a mean afghan. Your series is not one I have read but it sounds like one that I would like to read.
I have always avoided people taking pictures of myself. I have never been photogenic. I still have pictures from my high school senior year pictures and I looked so terrible. It is like the DMV picture: dull and uninteresting.
I don't like getting my picture taken because I alwys find fault of myself---too fat--wrong color clothing, etc. But I love taking picture in ordr to have memories and look back on events. Fortunately many of my friends love to have their pictures taken
Ooooo I don't like pictures taken of me either---but I do like to read this series so keep writing.
love the books! I'm always tying to figure out just where the action is taking place - I live not too far away and have relatives who lived in Beverly Cove...I avoid having my picture taken and can't quite understand why one of my sons is so photogenic - what does he do? why does he look so good in pictures? how does he do it? It will always be a mystery!
I love that I am not alone! Thank you all for your comments and I can clearly see I

I am always the picture taker so have very few pics. I love taking pics of my kids and dogs so there are tons of those

I usually am the picture taker so I don't have a lot of pictures of myself.
What gorgeous colourful covers! And I love the cat.
Somehow I have missed these but they sure look like they need to be on my to be read list. I love the covers.
My mom feels the same way!
I've never liked having my picture taken
Photographs are precious for family and to be treasured.
Hard to understand how I have not ever heard of your Seaside books but now that I have come back to the hobby of knitting for my grandchildren, I know these are going to be books that I will love. I am a person who lives with a camera with her at all time; photos are my way to relive each and every family time and event. I love viewing my photos; it makes you realize how fast time does go when your children seem to go from birth to 40 years old in what seems like a few years not forty. Now our grandkids are enjoying their parents photos of their youth, so I know how much that means to all of us. Can't wait to read your books, so that does mean a few of them as I always start with book 1 in every series that I read. Thank you for the lovely giveaway today.
I feel the same way, I don't like having my picture taken.
I hate having my picture taken, but a good photographer

Being captured in photo form while in a moment of true joy is
Would love to read your book. I am a knitter and a reader...two of my favorite
I really love cozy mysteries. Your books sound like fun! Happy Mother's Day!
Enjoyed reading about the ordeal you went through having your picture taken, I can really relate.
A good photographer tries, most people point an shoot--no
