Welcome to Christmas in July.
Today I will be sharing Trimmed With Murder, Seaside Knitters Mystery #10, by Sally Goldenbaum.
Seaside Harbor is home of the fighting Cool Cods.
Just knowing that makes makes me think Trimmed With Murder will be a fun cozy mystery to curl up with on a cold winter’s night…or on the sunny beach and celebrate Christmas in July.
It all starts when Charlie picks Izzy up on the side of the road. Neither one of them wanted to be here, because we all know, in a small town there are no secrets.
Most of the characters are warm and giving…once you get to know them, but there are some with secrets to hide and will cross the line to keep them buried.
I feel bad for Charlie and wonder about the missing years in his life. Where has he been and why is he so different from the person they knew before?
And the murderer…
I know who I feel it could be, but there is also a deeper mystery to be solved…
The Knitting Club knows everyone and everything happening in town, so they figure they should be the ones to find the answers and put the town’s fears to rest, so they began to “walk the road.” I love when a group of small town ladies get it in their heads to investigate a murder. Some times it can be fun, other times…
I love stories located by the seaside. They lend an extra element to the story that makes me want to walk along the shore with this “tight knit” group of friends who care about their town and the people in it.
Trimmed With Murder by Sally Goldenbaum shows us that you can go home again.
Sally Goldenbaum has also included knitting instructions for a sailboat ornament and a recipe for pork tenderloin in Trimmed With Murder
Seeds of Eden by A P Watts has an awesome cover, which made the book jump out at me. I have seen other covers by this designer and she does a fabulous job.

Seeds of Eden
(The Concilium, #1)
Publication date: January 25th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance
I will admit I love YA stories, even though sometimes they can fall a little flat in the excitement department. Seeds of Eden by A P Watson is one of those stories, but the opening pages did grab me and make me want to know Evey’s story. I wanted to know what’s going on, what will happen next.
I love storylines like Seeds of Eden. Time travel? Reincarnation?
Evey’s light in the darkness. More than a symbol of love and hope.
Evey is a regular teenage girl in her senior year, with all the normal hopes and desires. She loves history and I wonder…
I love her best friend, Caroline, especially when she says things like…
“It’s like I always say, we’re best friends because we hate all the same people.”
Seeds of Eden is a romance, a love story that is eternal…Infinite.
It is YA all the way. I would have liked more depth…Her feelings for her situation, realizing who she really is and the fact that someone would die to protect her were glossed over. I wanted more details.
I liked the story, but it is repetitious and drags sometimes. I kept waiting for something to happen, instead of just hem hawing her way through the relationship with Conrad. Yes, no, yes, no…
Seeds of Eden does not stand alone and I do want to read the rest of their story. I want to see how everything pans out for them in this trilogy and for that reason I do recommend the series.
