Murder in Merino

I fell in love with this charming seaside town.
~Melina’s Book Blog

Murder in Merino is a great cozy mystery that has charming characters and well-written storyline that will make you want to visit this beautiful seaside community.

I would love to visit this town. I was left guessing right up until the end as to who committed the crime. I would recommend this book to all mystery lovers.

These are people you would want to know. There is also a wonderful sense of place, wonderful description. This is a place you will want to visit.

The characters are fabulous, loving, with a touch of quirky! Perfect!

And what can I say about the setting. . . amazing and my only question is how do I get invited to these Friday night gatherings and dinners? The setting is so quaint and the relationships between the characters is so fun and authentic . . . I can’t say enough about this series .

This is the best example of a cozy that I have read in a long time.

More than almost any other book I have read, I felt a part of the town of Sea Harbor. I was not an observer of Ben and Nell Endicott’s weekly “friends and family supper”, I was a guest. And as such, I almost felt like I had a stake in the town’s happenings, and by extension, the wonderful story woven (or would that be knitted) by Sally Goldenbaum in “Murder in Merino”.

What an incredible story it was just so addicting I couldn’t stop…
~Community Bookstop

Even though this was my first visit to Sea Harbor. It won’t be my last. School will be out in a few weeks and Sea Harbor is on my reading destination. If you enjoy good mysteries, I highly recommend you join me.
~Booklady’s Booknotes

…this was like coming home to a familiar set of friends.
~Watching the Words

I loved all the locals in Sea Harbor instantly. Sally has created a wonderful town that you really wish you could visit, by the time you finish reading the book….This is a fantastic read.
~A Chick Who Reads

The sense of love felt throughout the town between neighbors, friends, and even acquaintances (well, except for those killing off those that weren’t meant to make it through the story…ahem…and even still, there IS love), was palpable through the pages and heart warming across the miles. The author surely built a place we’d all love to find one day.
~Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers

I had no trouble at all feeling right at home in Sea Harbor. The characters are warm and welcoming and the town is just a delight.

MURDER IN MERINOMurder in Merino: A Seaside Knitters Mystery
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: NAL Hardcover (May 6, 2014)
ISBN-13: 978-0451415363



It’s autumn in Sea Harbor and as the tourists leave a mysterious guest arrives. When she’s implicated in a crime the Seaside Knitters must quickly table their knitting project and search out a motif for murder.

Fall is usually a relaxing time in Sea Harbor, but it’s turning out to be a busy season for Izzy Chambers Perry. Not only is she helping the Seaside Knitters make a magnificent throw to celebrate the fortieth wedding anniversary of her aunt and uncle, she and her husband are finally selling the cottage she lived in before they married and had a darling baby girl. To Izzy’s surprise, newcomer Julia Ainsley seems determined to buy the home—although she’s never set foot inside.

But on the day of the open house, things take a tragic turn. A body is uncovered in the cottage’s backyard. When the police find Julia’s name and phone number in the victim’s pocket, this slender thread of evidence makes her a person of interest. Soon the spotlight of suspicion widens to include old friends and town leaders, as a tragic happening, long buried in the sleepy seaside town, is slowly brought to the surface.

Before the Endicotts’ joyful anniversary celebration can be realized, the Seaside Knitters must work to unravel the real reason Julia Ainsley has come to their town and the tangled and tragic ties from the past that bind friends and townsfolk together.
