Christmas In July – Trimmed With Murder by Sally Goldenbaum @sallygoldenbaum
Trimmed with Murder: A Seaside Knitters Mystery - Sally Goldenbaum

Welcome to Christmas in July.

 

Today I will be sharing Trimmed With Murder, Seaside Knitters Mystery #10, by Sally Goldenbaum.

 

Trimmed With Murder (Seaside Knitters Mystery, #10)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

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

Read, Write, Love at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 1) - Addison Cole


I never read the steamier version of this title. However, when I heard Melissa Foster’s alter ego would release the cleaner version I was intrigued and jumped at the chance to read a copy.


What the story is about.

Kurt Remington is a best-selling thriller author, who takes his writing seriously. This dedication led to him living a reclusive life. His family was eager to see him move beyond the world he created in his books and embrace what real life had to offer. Currently, that was not on his list of things to do, however, when Leanna Bray literally swam into his life, he would come to realise that there is someone more captivating than the characters in his fictional world.


Leanna Bray’s focus is on getting her jam-making business off the ground and bring organisation to her life. As such, a relationship is not on her list of priorities. However, when Kurt came to her rescue, she may need to reorganise her list if only she can maintain some order in her life.


My Perspective


The story

Read, Write, Love was classified as a clean read and this was true to some extent. The author alluded to intimate encounters between the main characters, but there were no graphic descriptions. In addition, the language was clean, which I found refreshing.

There is no mistaking that this is the work of Melissa Foster, which is evident by the writing style. The story was sweet and emotional. This book is evidence that the author can write not only steamy romances but also ones where the bedroom door is closed. The story was engaging and perfectly paced, with fun, sweet and emotional moments.


The Characters

One of the things I associate with the author is good character development. I have never had a problem connecting with any of her characters and this was no different.

Kurt is a man that thrives on order in every aspect of his life. He is a perfect gentleman. What I enjoyed most about him were his patience and kindness. He was not keen on being disturbed, when in his writing zone, but the fact he willingly came out of the zone to rescue Leann and her dog demonstrated his caring nature. Leann is a free spirit, who is disorganised in every aspect of their lives. She takes each day has it comes and does not follow a specific plan. Kurt and Leanna were as different as night is from the day, but in spite of the differences, they made a great couple. They complemented each other well.

Kurt learnt the importance of having a balanced life while Leann discovered the importance of being organised especially in her business life.


The romance.

Their summer romance was sweet, passionate and flirty. This was not a love at first sight scenario. Their connection was established from their initial meeting, but their romance developed throughout the summer. I enjoyed how they related to each other throughout the story.


Recommendation:

If you are looking for a clean, but passionate romance story, if you want a story that has depth and filled with emotion then look no further. Read, Write, Love at Seaside has it all.

New Romance Release! Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole ​
Dreaming at Seaside - Addison Cole

New Romance Release! Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole ​ 'The writing was fantastic and this novel is an absolute page-turner from beginning to end.' reviews Jennifer Thomason​

 

'Dreaming at Seaside, the second in this standalone sweet romance series, was just as fabulous as Read, Write, Love at Seaside! This time the story focuses on the wild, outspoken Bella and a new police officer in town named Caden. Bella has decided to quit her teaching job in Connecticut and move to the Cape full time, hopefully heading up a new work study project with the local high school. Caden and his 15-year-old son Evan have just moved to the cape from Boston as Caden tries to recover from the death of his partner. Bella has sworn off relationships but can’t deny the attraction to Caden – but Caden doesn’t want a one night stand, he wants a relationship.

 

Bella and Caden’s story was wonderful, as was the chemistry between them. The writing was fantastic and this novel is an absolute page-turner from beginning to end. I love that the Sweet with heat series brings passion and chemistry into the stories without going overboard on the sexy scenes and language, just proving that leaving some things up to the imagination does not take away from the power of the story! I am officially hooked on this series and cannot wait to read book 3!'

Book Description
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

 

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

 

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

 

Dreaming at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Dreams by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster​

Seaside Playboy (The Mac Brothers Book 2)
Seaside Playboy (The Mac Brothers Book 2) - Jennifer Conner The Mac Brothers are on the cusp of strengthening their bond as they rebuild a business that has seen better days. Jennifer Conner expertly flip flops between romantic suspense and contemporary romance. I'm more enamored of her contemporary tales. Seaside Playboy is about having the courage to regain control of one's life. Donnan and Emina are both unhappy with the direction their lives are headed. Donnan has grown tired of the redundancy of his and Emina is seeking to break her cycle of making bad choices. Brought together by an old resort, can these two rebuild their lives into something extraordinary together? Seaside Playboy is as sweet as it is short. My only complaint is that I wish it was a bit longer.

Dreaming at Seaside
Dreaming at Seaside - Addison Cole The hardest decision for a person to face is knowing when to let go. Hearts are broken, children grow up, the people we love and admire pass on. Life happens. It's inevitable. The pain is real, but in dwelling on the bad moments means missing out on some of the best. Ms. Cole does a beautiful job of relaying that message in Dreaming at Seaside. Caden is a single father struggling with grief, guilt, loneliness and a difficult child. Bella is a woman determined to live life to the fullest. Against a beautiful backdrop and deeply moving scenarios, sparks fly, hearts get broken and difficult choices are made. However, the one thing that remains the same the lasting impact of the lessons learned.
