Knitting, baking…and murder to solve. It’s all on the agenda for a weekend’s retreat at Vista Del Mar for yarn retreat host Casey Feldstein. For her current group, members already have their activities planned, so Casey is thinking it’ll be an easy weekend for her.

Things do heat up, though, when a start-up group from Silicon Valley on a mindfulness weekend and a birdwatching bunch show up for their retreats at the same time at the rustic resort.

But little does Corey know she’ll discover the body of one of the mindfulness group on the rocks at the edge of the sea. Was it a tragic accident or did someone target the victim…and why?

As Casey discovers connections among the members of the various groups and the secrets some are keeping, she unwinds why the victim was killed and who did it.

A well-written cozy mystery with an interesting collection of characters and lots of possible suspects will keep you turning the pages to see if you figure out who the culprit is before Casey does.
