The Seaside Knitters are getting ready for the town
trimming competition when two new people arrive.
Izzy's younger brother, Charlie, who has been missing
from their lives for a long time and a hitchhiker he
picked up on the road, Amber Hanson.
Amber has returned to Sea Harbor in response to a message
from an attorney. Her grandmother died, and there is an
inheritance involved. Amber isn't sure what to expect
since her grandmother had very little to do with her as
she grew up. Amber's father died in an accident when she
was a child. That same accident left her mother in a
vegetative state. Amber was unable to return for her
mother's funeral, and she isn't sure she is doing the
right thing by returning now.
Charlie is reluctant to explain his absence from the
family in the last years, but Izzy, Nell and Ben are
gradually able to get him to open up. Charlie is now a
nurse and he is volunteering at a local free clinic.
Nell and Ben are so happy to welcome him back. Izzy is a
little more reluctant to forgive her brother.
Amber and Charlie are drawn to each other even when they
are at odds. When Amber is found dead, the Seaside
Knitters must discover the identity of the killer since
they all know the boyfriend is the first person
looked at by the police, and Nell is determined to keep
Charlie out of jail.
TRIMMED WITH MURDER will keep the reader
guessing as the Seaside Knitters have to unraveled the
life of an unhappy young woman. Ms. Goldenbaum writes an
extremely moving story about family and incidents which
can have such a strong impact on the dynamics. One of my
favorite series is
the Seaside Knitters
Mysteries because reading a
Goldenbaum book is like coming home to meet with friends.
Even though it's been a while between visits, the reader
will feel welcomed back to group.
