Adoptee Lucille Jones has come to Minnesota to find her biological parents. Betsy Devonshire notices her resemblance to Jan Henderson, and they meet at her shop, immediately hitting it off. But Betsy begins to wonder about Lucille's motives when Jan's elderly aunt is murdered. If Lucille does prove to be Jan's sister, she stands to inherit as well. And what is buried in the spot marked by a hidden embroidered map that Jan has found? Betsy is asked to investigate once again, and uncovers secrets that someone obviously does not want unearthed. It's another interesting mystery, and slightly more convoluted than previous books in the series, with a peculiar twist, although a not-so-surprising ending.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly
Betsy Devonshire, proprietor of a needlework shop and sometime sleuth, looks into the mysterious death of Edyth Hanraty, an eccentric, elderly multimillionaire in the engrossing 10th installment of Ferris's smalltown Minnesota needlecraft series (after 2005's Embroidered Truths). Edyth's great niece, Jan, who stands to inherit a small fortune, comes under suspicion. Betsy is determined to clear Jan, who is one of her most loyal customers. Plenty of other suspects aboundâJan's own mother, Jan's resentful and immature uncle and Lucille Jones, a charming Texas gal who claims to be Jan's long-lost sister. The discovery of a decades-old embroidered map, possibly leading to buried treasure, adds to the intrigue. The brisk plot and well-developed characters make this complex novel one of the stronger entries in this cozy series. (June)

Book Description
Owner of the Crewel World needlework shop and part-time sleuth, Betsy Devonshire must help clear Jan Henderson's name when her wealthy aunt is found dead, courtesy of a double-zero knitting needle. Just like the kind Jan knits with. And an embroidered map of Lake Minnetonka, found among the aunt's effects, could lead Betsy to a buried treasure-or to a secret that someone would kill to keep buried.
