It’s not uncommon for Nell and her friends to meet a newcomer – after all, Seaside is a quaint village on the Massachusetts coast that draws visitors from all over the world. But there’s something about Glenn Mackenzie that intrigues Nell. What’s brought the young doctor to Seaside – and why does he seem to have something to hide?
Nell has other things to worry about, however, and Glenn soon slips off of her radar. She’s worried about her friend, town doctor Alan Hamilton, who seems unusually fatigued and distracted. When Alan’s sudden death is determined to be murder, Nell and her friends are shocked, wondering who could possibly want the kind and caring doctor dead.
All eyes turn to Glenn Mackenzie, the newcomer who has not been forthcoming about his reasons to stick around Seaside for longer than originally stated. But Glenn is not the only one who falls under suspicion, and as Nell and her close knit group soon discover, there are several other people connected to Dr. Hamilton’s clinic who could have cause to kill him. A closer examination is definitely called for, and as the Seaside Knitters begin to pick up bits and pieces, their persistence pays off, leading them to the end of a sad story indeed.
Murder at Lambswool Farm is the eleventh story in Sally Goldenbaum’s “Seaside Knitters” series, and the friendship between this group of small town residents remains as fresh and charming as ever. Although they live in an enviable location, the number of murders is decidedly high, giving the friends lots of opportunities to practice their amateur sleuthing. That said, the Seaside Knitters are a genuinely appealing group that one would be lucky to be a part of! Even if you aren’t headed to the coast for vacation, tuck Murder at Lambswool Farm in your luggage for a taste of salty sea air…and homicide!
