Book Review: “Death by Cashmere” by Sally Goldenbaum (Seaside Knitters Mystery #1)


Title:  Death by Cashmere

Author:  Sally Goldenbaum

Series:  Seaside Knitters #1

Synopsis (from

Not long after Isabel “Izzy” Chambers opens up a knitting shop in the sleepy fishing town of Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, a diverse group of women begins congregating each week to form the Seaside Knitters.

Izzy raises some eyebrows when she rents the apartment above her shop to Angie Archer, whose reputation for loose behavior and a quick temper has made her unpopular with many locals. But could any of them have wanted her dead? Angie’s body is discovered drowned in the harbor, her long red hair tangled like seaweed in a lobster trap.

An official investigation rules the death an accident. There are speculations of too many whiskey sours, a slippery wharf, a dark night…But Izzy and the Seaside Knitters smell something fishy. When several strange incidents occur above the shop, the women decide to take matters into their own hands. But before long, their small-town sense of security is frayed, and the threat of more violence hangs over this tightly knit community…


My thoughts:  I was recently introduced to this series when I took part in a blog tour for Sally Goldenbaum’s latest book, “Murder in Merino”.   Well, there are no words to say how much I want to move into and live in these books.  I read a lot of cozy mysteries and some are certainly cozier than others . . . . this one is most definitely cozy, cozier, and coziest.

I absolutely love these characters – charming, fun, authentic, just wonderful.

The sense of friendship and camaraderie in these books is astounding, and so heart-warming. . . I want to be friends with these people, when can I move there.

I highly recommend this charming and heart-warming cozy series . . . these would be a fantastic beach read or plane read for your upcoming summer travels.

Moving quickly on to #2,

And remember,

Books Are Life
