Overview

Betsy Devonshire, full-time owner of the Crewel World needlework shop and part-time sleuth, has hooked more than a few crooks in the USA Today bestselling Needlecraft Mysteries. Now Betsy learns the hard way that a murder is still murder, any way you color it…

Betsy is a natural-born yarnsmith—so it’s only fitting that some of her favorite items to stock come from the dye-works of Hailey Brent. Hailey makes hand-dyed knitting wool, silk, soy, and corn yarns. She uses only natural vegetable dyes, creating soft and beautiful colors. Which means her yarns are expensive, but well worth it.

Unfortunately, someone thinks they’re worth killing for.

When Hailey’s body is discovered shot dead in her workshop, Betsy discovers that there was a lot about Hailey she would have never guessed. Like her penchant for stealing other’s property for her own use. Her use of dangerous additives to create her so-called all-natural fibers. And a scheming mind that had made her more than one enemy.

Now, Betsy must wring the truth from a bevy of colorful suspects. Because the truth just might mean the difference between living—and dyeing…

    Fun reading

    I have long been a fan of Monica Ferris and her needlecraft mystery series. Now that I have my NOOK, I can take her everywhere. This is the 16th in her series and I love how she brings in new applications for needlecraft projects. This one focuses on dyeing yarns and, of course, how these natural yarns can be used. Yes, there is mystery and mayhem but I read the books more for the needlecraft tidbits than for the mystery. And living in the area around Minnetonka and Excelsior, MN also gives Ms. Ferris' mysteries a special place on my reading list.

    16 and counting

    I found the Needlecraft series by accident at the library one day, and now am an avid fan and promoter. It's not soly on the writing, but I have learned so much about needlecraft from these books! Betsy Devonshire, Godwin and Monica Ferris are people I would love to have lunch with sometime. I'm "dyeing" to read the next in the series.

    Death of a Dyer

    This latest Betsy Devonshire mystery begins, innocently enough, with a very informative evening session at Crewel World, conducted by fifty-something local spinner/dyer Hailey Brent, who is teaching Betsy and her group how to color both protein (animal -- including, strangely enough, silk) and plant fibers with natural vegetable dyes. (By the way, who knew sugar could be used to set a dye color?) When local busybody artiste Irene Potter visits Hailey's home and discovers her dead in her workshop basement, Betsy is cajoled into investigating by plant seller Marge Schultz, who had been ribbed mercilessly by Hailey at the session, and who had crossed swords with Hailey over her habit of pilfering materials for her dyes -- and who fears she may be the prime suspect in the dyer's murder. But she isn't the only one. Hailey not only pilfered plants, she had a habit of worming her way into people's confidences just enough to pilfer gossip and then turn around and inform the gossip victim. Still angry over her own divorce decades ago, Hailey had been encouraging a young woman to divorce her husband. Then there's a local man with the unpredictably angry wife -- could one of those rages have led her to murder? And then there's Hailey's daughter Del, a nurse with blue-green hair. Does she have anything to hide? Throw in Crewel World's first-ever needlework competition and the return of Annie, and you've got an interesting tale.

    I really like Monica's books. A friend of mine got me a signed copy of one of her books at a Quilt show and I will treasure it. I like all the characters and can't wait for the next book to come out.
