My biggest frustration with this series is being left out of all the big clues which would help the reader solve the crime. In this case it happened multiple times towards the end, and we were left out of multiple big bombshell revelations. The story cuts away before letting us know what they read on the paper or what they saw in a photo. This is Very aggravating because it makes it impossible to try and solve the mystery yourself. It's not until they confront the killer that we get clued in.
As far as characters go, Nell & Izzy are very annoying. They have no dimensions to them, all we know is that they have perfect lives & are perfect people. Except I find Nell to be pushy.. she expects everyone to air their dirty laundry, but only puts her own perfect life forward. It's this way she carries where she feels like she's entitled to dig into everyone's most personal secrets. Its aggravating. Birdy is the best though and she redeems this whole series. She's witty, sassy, kind & has a very real personality.
I definitely do wish I was a part of the seaside knitters, the scene is beautifully set & it has a warm cozy feel. I have some qualms with the series, but I feel like it could so easily be improved & I keep having hope the next book will be better.
These books never disappoint. They just keep getting better and better. One suggestion, though, read them in order if possible to keep up with the new characters as they are introduced. Again, I could listen to this narrator all day, she's great.
