Helpful Score: 3
This is the 11th in the series. By now, most authors have either fallen in a rut or are repeating themselves. Her stories just keeps getting more complex and more believable. Her writing is improvement. Her characters are consistant but not stagnant. One of the very few authors that I will buy the hardbacks new (and pay full retail!!) and as soon as they come out on the shelf.
Betsy is incapacitated with a broken leg after a horseback riding accident, so her store manager and friend Godwin has to take her place at the Embroiderers Guild of America banquet. The EGA has raised $24,000 for the Heart Coalition, and the check presented to their representative has vanished along with the man, who is the husband of an EGA member and an acquaintance of Betsy's. She begs her to investigate, sure that her husband is not a thief, so Betsy enlists Godwin's help with the legwork. When his corpse is found, but not the check, Betsy and Godwin now have to track down a murderer as well as the money. As usual, Ferris has penned an intriguing mystery, with a villain with an interesting twist. Thrown in as a sidebar story is a rescued crow that Betsy helps to smuggle out of Minnesota. Ferris continues to hold my interest in this light cozy series and I am looking forward to the next one.
