How to Knit a Murder (Seaside Knitters Society Book 2) by [Goldenbaum, Sally]* Includes a knitting pattern *

A mysterious woman arrives in picturesque Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, and the Seaside Knitters welcome her into their cozy world of intricate patterns and colorful skeins. Unfortunately, nothing frays a warm introduction like cold-blooded murder . . .  

With her shy manner and baggy jeans, Rose Chopra becomes an unlikely superhero the night she stumbles into Izzy Perry’s shop and inadvertently saves a shipment of yarn from water damage. When the Seaside Knitters help the enigmatic handywoman settle into town and find work at a popular real estate company, Rose proves she can fix just about anything—until a potential homebuyer is killed and she becomes entangled in murder . . .

The moment controversial entrepreneur Spencer Paxton is found dead in a pricey ocean-side house, accusations fly at the last person on the property—Rose. But the Seaside Knitters have their doubts. After all, Spencer’s political aspirations as well as his company’s plans to pave over Sea Harbor’s historic art district with luxury apartments earned him some very real enemies . . .

Now, Izzy, Birdie, Nell, and Cass must swap knitting for sleuthing as they struggle to move the needle on a twisted homicide case causing turmoil across town. As tensions build in the sleepy New England community and Rose’s secret past unravels, the ladies face an unsettling realization—true victims aren’t always the ones buried six feet under . . .  (Amazon)

Storm Rising (An F.B.I. K-9 Novel Book 3) by [Driscoll, Sara]The heart-pounding thriller of a series continues as FBI Special Agent Meg Jennings and her search-and-rescue K-9 companion confront the fury of nature—and the more dangerous nature of man . . .

In the wake of a devastating hurricane, Special Agent Meg Jennings and her Labrador, Hawk—invaluable members of the FBI’s Human Scent Evidence Team—have been deployed to Virginia Beach. They have their work cut out for them. Amid graveyards of debris, and the buried cries for help, the search and rescue operation begins. The most alarming discovery is yet to come—a teenage girl hiding in the Great Dismal Swamp. Shaken by the storm, she has reason to be scared. But this young survivor is terrified of so much more.

Her name is Emma—a disheveled runaway lost to the sordid underbelly of a Virginia sex-trafficking ring. Its leader has disappeared in the chaos—along with other victims. With so much evidence, and so many witnesses, seemingly washed away, Meg joins forces with Special Agent Walter Van Cleave to ensure no further harm comes to their vulnerable charge. They soon discover that this is no small-time localized syndicate. Its branches are rooted in some of the most influential powers in Virginia. Now as Meg’s investigation digs deeper, she’s making some very dangerous enemies. And one by one, they’re coming out of the storm to stop her.  (Amazon)

The Case of the Unfettered Utonagan (The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries Book 22) by [Snow, B.R.]With Suzy about to give birth to her daughter, her ability to perform basic physical movement is severely limited. But her neurons are firing on all cylinders and kick into overdrive when Dr. Jeremy Peters, the eccentric ex-boyfriend of the new veterinarian they’ve just hired, is found dead at a remote hunting lodge. And when they discover a collection of wolf-dog hybrids in cages, a research-interest of the dead scientist, Suzy and Josie find themselves with another problem: What do you do with two dozen hybrids who can’t live on their own in the wild, but aren’t domesticated enough to be eligible for adoption?

As various versions of the dead scientist’s will surface, the situation turns murky as Suzy and Chief Abrams, along with Detective Williams from the state police, try to identify the murderer from a list of suspects, all potential beneficiaries of Peters’ estate, that includes the scientist’s wife, his brother, his research assistant and one of the major investors in whatever ‘research’ the scientist’s primary focus actually is. And the fact their new vet is also listed as a beneficiary adds another level of complexity and uncertainty to the question of the killer’s identity.

The Case of the Unfettered Utonagan is the latest installment in B.R. Snow’s popular Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries and contains all the elements readers have come to expect and enjoy. Set against the backdrop of one of the beautiful spots on earth, all the major characters are back and in fine form as Suzy’s latest challenge unfolds. And by the time the case is wrapped up, Suzy and the gang are left wondering about what the future holds for all of us, including the dogs.  (Amazon)
