"A crafty hygge style mystery with red herrings aplenty!"

Fresh Fiction Review

A Murderous Tangle

Mystery Cozy | Mystery Hobbies

The Seaside Knitting Studio is hosting its first holiday hygge and all the members are looking forward to a quiet gathering knitting or crocheting before a warm fire in their comfortable clothes with hot spiced cider and homemade cookies. Unfortunately, a murder disrupts the town of Sea Harbor and now the Seaside Knitters are tracking down a murderer in their midst. Who wanted Bobby Abbott dead? And does Tess Bean and her environmental activism play a role?

I’ve seen hygge yarn in the stores, but it’s Sally Goldenbaum’s A MURDEROUS TANGLE that sent me to google to learn more about the hygge lifestyle. Sally Goldenbaum’s charming characters make me want to pull out my loom and knit with soft music and the scent of lavender in the air. Sally Goldenbaum has a knack for crafting her own hygge style cozy mysteries as the atmosphere in every book I’ve read by her is warm and inviting.

Sally Goldenbaum has written one heck of a mystery! We had all sorts of red herrings amidst the genuine clues as I was kept guessing who the real murderer was till almost the very end. If you’re looking for a cleverly crafted mystery that also inspires you to change your own world for the better, then look no further than A MURDEROUS TANGLE.

SUMMARY

Birdie, Nell, Cass, and Izzy are prepping their coziest handiwork for a holiday gathering in Sea Harbor, Massachusetts. But as murder makes waves in their tightly knit coastal village, can the Seaside Knitters prevent a deadly trend from catching on?
 
While the Seaside Knitters get ready to showcase their new Danish-inspired event, locals can’t stop talking about Tess Bean—a bright-eyed environmental activist with a way of charming both animals and humans alike. Birdie’s granddaughter is mesmerized by ethereal Tess’s passion for saving the earth and ocean, and even Izzy’s old Irish setter becomes attached to the young woman’s gentle touch . . .
 
Except not everyone is a fan of Tess and her strong opinions, especially after she starts questioning the “clean” practices of small-business owners. So when a popular bar owner whom Tess publicly calls out for bad practices is found dead from a fall off his club’s deck, it’s not long before she tops the suspect list for murder . . .
 
In addition to a murderer walking their streets, the knitters are also grappling with an unusual wave of thefts up and down Harbor Road. Now, as Birdie’s granddaughter struggles to protect her mentor’s reputation, the Seaside Knitters must solve a dangerous mystery that not only threatens to unravel the fabric of their community and the approaching holiday, but also the lives of those they care about the most . . .
