Publisher's Summary

The new mystery series that spins a yarn about knitters and murder in a seaside village.
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...

Great first book in a new series

Couldn't put it down. Interesting characters and complex plot. Great first entry. Hope the next will live up to this one. Narrator does a fine job as well

Wanted to love this

Is there anything you would change about this book?

What's not to love about knitting and the seashore? Well the plot drug out the story and never really engaged the listener. I think the author should have introduced the murder victim in more detail so we care more about her murder. I cared more about the Cashmere sweater than the victim.


What does Julie McKay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Julie did a fine job of reading an unremarkable story.


Do you think Death by Cashmere needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I will probably not bother to read additional books in the series.


Any additional comments?

This series reminds me of Harlequin Romances (without the steamy parts). They are easy to listen too, predictable, and do not task your brain. If that's what you are looking for then you will probably enjoy Murder by Cashmere. If you want interesting characters and a riveting plot, look elsewhere.
