Patterns in the Sand (A Seaside Knitters Mystery #2) by Sally Goldenbaum
It has been a whole year since the tragic murder that took Angie’s life, and all the knitters are looking forward to a happy, murder-free, knitting summer.
The first surprise is when the knitting shop is broken into by a young woman. She was found asleep in the storefront window on top of the yarn display there.
It turns out this woman is yarn artist, Willow Adams. Izzy had invited her to come, but never expected to come upon her like that.
She is very flightily and vague, staying with Nell in their guest house, but leaving every day to roam about the shops, galleries, and studios.
But then Aiden Peabody, gallery owner, artist, and wealthy member of the community is found murdered!
The whole town is in shock, the knitters even more so when it appears that Willow is the prime suspect.
The knitters set out to catch killer and clear Willow’s innocence.
Thoughts After Reading:
I couldn’t stand this book.
They kept going on about how Willow couldn’t kill anyone and wanted to help her; the only problem is they DON’T know her. Just because she is an artist it doesn’t mean she can’t be a killer or a liar. We don’t KNOW her, she could be ANYTHING!
Their whole argument was that she’s is such a talented artist, she couldn’t hurt a fly. But then, the one who turns out to be the “real murderer” was an artist.
