Late summer blooms in beautiful Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, and while a harvest thrives, Izzy Chambers Perry and the other Seaside Knitters will need to cast on their sleuthing skills to save a local farm. Unfortunately, finding a killer can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. . . . Seaside Knitter Birdie Favazza has long loved knitting, but lately she’s taken on a new challenge—making a family farm operational again. With help from friends, Lambswool Farm is now up and running, with thriving crops and grazing sheep. In addition, the farm will host rustic, six-course prix fixe dinners plated by local chefs and served on a gorgeous restored harvest table, decorated to perfection with colorful knitted vegetables crafted by Izzy Chambers Perry, her aunt Nell, and the other Seaside Knitters. But on the night of the first meal, everything spins out of control when one of the guests, Seaside Harbor’s family physician, becomes fatally ill. It seems that behind Dr. Alan Hamilton’s friendly bedside manner was a man with enemies and secrets. Soon the town is gossiping and pointing fingers at all possible suspects—including the women at Lambswool Farm. Now the Seaside Knitters must join together to uncover the truth in Dr. Hamilton’s complicated past—and restore peace to town and country alike. From the Hardcover edition.
"Seaside Knitter Birdie Favazza is thrilled that her granddaughter, Gabby, will be visiting for the fall and attending the Sea Harbor Community Day School. Gabby loves the all-girls school, with its newly adopted progressive curriculum, and she loves that the Seaside Knitters are teaching knitting as part of the enrichment program. It's a huge success, and on crisp autumn days girls camp out on the terraces, knitting hats for charity. But not everyone is happy with the direction the school is taking. Outspoken board member Blythe Westerland has sparked tempers with her determination to discredit the current administration. Then, on the evening of an elegant school event, Blythe's body is found near the school boathouse. With a killer on the loose, Birdie is determined to keep Gabby safe. Working together, the Seaside Knitters carefully unravel the layers of Blythe's complicated life, bringing faculty members and town residents under scrutiny. Before the cast-off rows are made on the students' projects, the Knitters will need to stitch together the evidence to see whether a murderer has been walking beside them all along"--
