Patterns in the Sand

LibraryThing book review...
Patterns in the Sand
by Sally Goldenbaum

Willow Adams is a fiber artist who sneaks into the village of Sea Harbor, Massachusetts late one night. She breaks into the Seaside Knitters Studio and falls asleep with the store cat, Purl, in front of the display window. A nearby store owner spots her and calls the police. Izzy Chambers, owner of the studio, refuses to press charges. Willow explains that she came to Sea Harbor and to Izzy's studio to discuss her fiber art. What she doesn't tell them, however, is that she is really there to find her long lost father. In the meantime, local artist Aiden Peabody is murdered. The Seaside Knitters Club is on the case and is determined to solve the mystery.

Patterns in the Sand is the second book in the series by Sally Goldenbaum, A Seaside Knitters Mystery. I loved everything about this book...the eccentric characters, the beautiful Massachusetts setting, and the focus on all kinds of art. I found it to be the perfect cozy mystery and those are my absolute favorite. The characters all feel like friends, and I can't wait to see them again!

This sounds like the perfect book to read by the ocean on a summer day. :-) I am glad you enjoyed it, Julie. Great review.

This sounds wonderful. I'm always on the lookout for books with knitting themes.
