Smart inspiring read with lots of red herrings. Loved learning about mathematical knitting. ( )

I have not read all of the books in this series yet, but this one grabbed me from the first pages, with its bumbling murderer and his comedy of errors. I love the character of Victoria Trumbull, the 92-year-old sleuth in the series, and the setting of Martha's Vineyard, with its influx of tourists every summer. A delight. ( )

From the bottom of the stairway, Victoria Trumbull called up to her house guest, who'd dashed upstairs to her room after her shower, a towel wrapped around her, her hair still dripping.

Victoria Trumbull, the ninety-two-year-old poet/sleuth, is back in another entertaining mystery, set in beautiful Martha’s Vineyard.

A mathematical knitters group is working on a coral reef quilt for a competition to draw attention to global warming. When a telephone stalker begins preying on their members, they become terrified and distracted and turn to Victoria Trumbull for help. Victoria and Police Chief Casey O’Neill attempt to track down the man the women suspect of stalking, but he seems to have disappeared. To complicate matters, someone gets killed. Victoria must solve the murder and also deal with issues on the home front when her daughter, Amelia, arrives from California, determined to help her mother and concerned that Victoria may be too great a burden on Elizabeth, Amelia’s daughter.

Cynthia Riggs has once again created a suspenseful mystery with a cast of eccentric and memorable Island characters, bringing the rich setting of Martha’s Vineyard  to life.
