I really enjoyed this book. I thought the bead camp was a very different setting. I was saddened to learn of the author's passing, as I would have liked to have read more from her.

This was just a fun quick read. It made me want to be a beader for sure. It introduces Kitzi Camden who joins her friend Beth at Camp Green Clover for some peaceful crafting only to find themselves in the middle of a murder investigation. Unfortunately do to the untimely death of Barbara Burnett Smith there will only be one more Kitzi book which saddens me greatly

Took a little to get into. Felt that the bead theme was a little weak, as the main character had little to do with beads. Still, it was a nice quick cozy read.

First is a series, this is a quick and easy read that many Texas women may enjoy because of the numerous references to real Texans. Since I love "crafty" heroines, I had hoped to find more beading tips. I will admit that I was stumped right to the end as to "whodunit" but did not enjoy this enough to keep it.

This is a quick read. I enjoyed the setting: a children's summer camp that is re-purposed during the other seasons as an adult (mostly women) sleep-away craft camp. It sounded like such a good idea!
The characters continue on in the later books of the series. I am hoping that the amateur detective, Kitzi, gains more experience. She made some poor choices in this plot. I like my detectives to be smarter than the average person. Don't you?
