This was a good light read. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. The author is really good at using color to describe her scenes. I've never been overly interested in needlework, but it sounds really interesting without being overbearing.

This was the 1st book I ordered in this series and one of the first books I got from PBS in 2007. I started reading it and realized I needed books 1-3. You will feel better starting at the beginning too. I am writing all that to say it took me way too long to get started. The books are getting better, I am liking the characters more. I think she does a much better job of describing yarns and project than other knitting cozies. Her mysteries are fun but not easy to solve. She covers many types of needle craft so you dont get bored.

Betsy Devonshire has finally settled into her new life as owner of her deceased sister's needlecraft shop. But the stress of the recent attempts on her life, as well as dealing with the many wolves who want a piece of her inheritance, have led to nightmares and exhaustion. Her cop friend Jill invites her to a a "stitch-in" at a remote lodge for a restful vacation, but the nightmares don't go away - and it doesn't help that she finds a dead body that later disappears so that no one believes her. Betsy is determined to solve the mystery and prove that she is not imagining things.

Once again Ferris has come up with an intriguing mystery and interesting characters, but I was a little disappointed that the conclusion was held together by weaker threads (pun intended) than her previous books. Still and all an enjoyable cozy.

The second in the Betsy Devonshire needlecraft mysteries. The protagonist is still struggling with her unexpected sleuthing talent, which is interesting, but Ferris is still trying to develop realistic villains.

The art of needlecraft requires patience, discipline, and creativity. So, too, does the art of detection. Clever needleworkers try to piece a case together---stitch by sinster stitch...

Monica Ferris' needlecraft mysteries are interesting and well-plotted. I usually learn something interesting about needlework in addition to being entertained. While they are not deep, they hold your interest. The characters are interesting and seem real and have experiences that are true to life.

This was good. I didn't like it as much as I have the others in this series, though, Betsy just kinda bugged me in this one. I did like having the story set somewhere other than the shop for a change, but I missed Godwin. :)

4th in the series. A fast, easy read. Enjoyable, but not too mysterious or enthralling. I like the characters of Jill and Betsy, who figure most prominently in this one. The setting was nice, outside of the hometown for a change. The whole thing seemed to pull together far too easily though. The murderers simply blurted out what they'd done, which made things seem a bit lame.
