"While the Seaside Knitters get ready to showcase their new Danish-inspired event, locals can't stop talking about Tess Bean -- a bright-eyed environmental activist with a way of charming both animals and humans alike. Birdie's granddaughter is mesmerized by ethereal Tess's passion for saving the earth and ocean, and even Izzy's old Irish setter becomes attached to the young woman's gentle touch... Except not everyone is a fan of Tess and her strong opinions, especially after she starts questioning the 'clean' practices of small-business owners. So when a popular bar owner whom Tess publicly calls out for bad practices is found dead from a fall off his club's deck, it's not long before she tops the suspect list for murder... In addition to a murderer walking their streets, the knitters are also grappling with an unusual wave of thefts up and down Harbor Road. Now, as Birdie's granddaughter struggles to protect her mentor's reputation, the Seaside Knitters must solve a dangerous mystery that not only threatens to unravel the fabric of their community and the approaching holiday, but also the lives of those they care about the most" -- Provided by publisher.

Sally Goldenbaum delivers another delightful story of friendship, loyalty, humor with A Murderous Tangle. Sally Goldenbaum supplies a complete roster of the characters in her novel, which I find wonderful. The Seaside Knitters of Massachusetts provide warmth, love, and friendship in this tight knit community where the town presents many events to strengthen a sense of belonging. Sometimes I feel that the murder stands behind the actual emotional ties of the town. The novel does not dip into a graphic description of the murder and at times seems like a Joanne Fluke mystery. Both writers provide a recipe at the end of the novel, but Sally Goldenbaum also gives a knitting pattern and portrays characters and setting better than Fluke.
