Trimmed with Murder is the tenth book in the Seaside Knitters Mystery series. I enjoyed how the author tied into the idea of a weekly knitting club. I wish my town had one and that the women in the group were like these ones. They are definitely a great group and each add their own set of skills to the community…especially when it comes to solving a murder. Even though this is part of a series, I felt like I was not missing anything by not reading the ones before. In this one we have a character returning home and there was a lot of drama that came with him, including a hitchhiker that ends up dead. The wonderful women of the knitting club will have to dig deep to find there murderer in this cozy mystery.
I enjoyed the ending of Trimmed with Murder and I can not wait to visit these characters again. I am giving this book a 4 out of 5.
I do wish that I knew how to knit, I only crochet, so I could try the pattern included!
In this holiday yarn from the USA Today bestselling author of A Finely Knit Murder, all Izzy Chambers Perry wants for Christmas is to keep her brother out of jail....
In Sea Harbor, the holidays mean cozy fires, festive carols, and soft skeins of yarn waiting to become hats and sweaters and scarves. And this year, Izzy and the other Seaside Knitters are also knitting tiny ornaments to decorate a tree for the first annual tree-trimming contest.
Their holiday cheer is multiplied when Izzy’s younger brother, Charlie Chambers, unexpectedly arrives to volunteer at a local clinic. He brings with him outspoken hitchhiker Amber Hanson, who is returning to Sea Harbor to claim an inheritance. She quickly reacquaints herself with the area—and forms an unlikely friendship with Charlie. But their bond is shattered when her body is found beneath the undecorated trees on the Harbor Green.
Charlie is a suspect in the murder, so Izzy and her fellow Knitters step in to uncover the truth. Their journey takes them into Charlie’s past and tests their fierce love for him. But it’s only by peeling away long-buried secrets that they can hope to restore joy to the season and enjoy the shining lights of the newly decorated trees....
