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.

What?!

The knitters set out to catch killer and clear Willow’s innocence.

Thoughts After Reading:

I couldn’t stand this book.

Ugh!

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.

The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern

So I thought it was time for another Cat Who… mystery. I thought, I could write this myself, or once again borrow from an older family member. As you can see I am borrowing my sister blog’s review of the second book in the Cat Who… series.

“We want you to publish a weekly magazine on interior design.’ ‘On what?‘ Qwilleran said in an unintended falsetto…Qwilleran’s throat felt as if he swallowed his moustache. ‘Gracious Abodes? Is that the name of the thing?” (pg. 10)

In this book I always feel bad for Qwill, as nothing seems to go right for him.

In book two, we pick up a little time after The Cat Who Could Read Backwards,  where we find Qwill eager for a new assignment. While he had some enjoyment on the art beat, art is not where he really wants to be. He wants to do something more exciting like crime, government issues, etc. However, his boss Percy (called that because of his excessive use of the phrase per se) doesn’t really go for that type of “disunity” and “abandonment” of your post.
