Come join the group in Izzy’s knit shop, gathered together knitting, talking, eating good food, and drinking good wine. In this sleepy tourist town on the Massachusetts coast, four women come together: Nell is a retiree who makes sure everyone is fed and taken care of, Birdie is old enough to tell it straight and not care what anyone thinks about it, Izzy left a law firm in Boston to come home and open her shop, and Cass has to wash off the smell of her lobster boat before she comes to gather with her friends and knit the same scarf over and over. Their quiet world is disturbed when Izzy’s upstairs renter, Angie, washes up on shore. The friends come together to console one another and figure out who brought this element of evil to their peaceful community. Death by Cashmere is a sumptuous story, providing a sweet escape to summer.
