A Holiday Yarn: A Seaside Knitters Mystery by Sally Goldenbaum.*
The fourth Seaside Knitters mystery is written from the point of Nell Endicott, aunt of Izzy Chambers who owns the Seaside Knitting Studio. The Knitters have been helping Mary Pisano turn the estate she inherited from her grandfater into a bed-and-breakfast inn.
The wealthy Pisanos have been having a family meeting in Sea Harbor, and Mary's cousin Pamela is quite vocal about considering the inn a bad idea. Shortly after declaring this opinion all over Sea Harbor, Pamela is found dead, holding a pistol, outside Mary's house.
Sea Harbor is a charming, enviably close-knit community, and this is an engaging story with more than one mystery to challenge the reader. (Why is Henrietta O'Neal so against the opening of the inn?) Be careful not to start this book at bedtime!
