WOW! This book had been sitting on my shelf for a moment of desperation. The idea of a book that included a free cross stitch pattern seemed a little hokey.
But when I got to the desperation point, I couldn't believe it. What a great book! I quickly felt I knew the characters, there was some detail without the details bogging you down, and I thought I had the mystery solved on several occasions.
I can't wait to get more from this author!!

Another good mystery from Monica Ferris. This was a really quick read, I finished it one day. Betsy Devonshire ends up investigating a 50 year old murder after one of her shop's Monday Bunch is suspected. She's still trying to adapt to living in the freezing North, and trying to work her way through owning a business, of which she knows next to nothing. I like that Ferris isn't afraid to finger regular characters in her books. There's nothing worse than that old "new guy in town" who ends up doing the deed.
Wonderful, colorful descriptions of needlework of all kinds abound in this book, as well, as always, a pattern at the back of the book if you are talented enough to try it out.

This one was easier to get into than the first one in the series (this is the second). The plot was decent, the characters interesting, although there are a few that are plain strange, and the setting has a lot of charm. Worth the read.

Number 2 in this cozy series, the characters are building and it's fun to watch them grow. She's doing a good job of building a great series. Enjoyed very much.

When the historic Hopkings ferry was raised from the bottom of the lake, who would have thought they were literally raising the dead! But there it was-a skeleton- right before their eyes. Unfortunately, the evidence is slim and soggy: The boat sank in 1949, the victim on board was a woman, and near the body is a piece of unidentifiable lacelike fabric. Sounds like a fob for Betsy Devonshire. Betsy know there's more to this story than what's on the surface. And once she and patrons of her needlecraft shop start lending a hand, they're sure to stitch together the details of this unnerving mystery.
