Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Truth seems hopelessly entangled with deception in this fascinating new needlework mystery by Monica Ferris. When a talented sculptor is murdered at a craft fair, Betsy Devonshire, owner of the Crewel Word needlework shop, is busy working at the fair's information booth, practically on the scene yet completely out of the loop. But Betsy's reputation for choosing all the right threads to pull in an investigation soon puts her in the center of the crime's unexpectedly complex pattern. One valued customer asks for Betsy's help in proving that the troubled youth accused of the crime is innocent, despite all the evidence to the contrary, while another insists on entrusting her with scraps of information the authorities seem too eager to dismiss. Discovering the truth means piecing together clues gathered from the dead man's family and friends and interweaving them with confidences from a friend on the police force who's troubled by the possibility that this crime is not as simple as the detective in charge of the case wants to believe. Soon, Wendy starts stitching together a strong case for justice, despite the danger of tampering with the unknown murderer's diabolically deadly design. Sue Stone

    Great mystery

    In the small Minnesota town of Excelsior, everyone looks forward to the yearly Art on the Lake Crafts Fair. At this year¿s event, Betsy Devonshire, owner of Crewel World mans the hospitality booth. When she hears sirens and sees people heading toward a booth near her, she stays away from it but people quickly tell her that someone slashed the throat of the woodcarver Robert McFey.<P> It isn¿t long before the local police arrest sixteen-year-old Mickey Sinclair for the crime. Mickey¿s bloody fingerprint is found in the booth and money is found in his home. He denies being at the fair but other people have sees him there. Most townsfolk think he is a troubled person, but they don¿t believe he is a killer. After all the homicides Betsy has solved, the townsfolk want her to find the real killer so that Mickey¿s life isn¿t spent behind bars.<P> What¿s very interesting about CUTWORK is that the family, neighbors and friends all believe the suspect is capable of criminal acts but don¿t believe he is a killer so they band together to pressure Betsy into solving the crime. Betsy doesn¿t want anything to do with the case until she sees Mickey and believes that he might be innocent of this crime. CUTWORK is a fabulous amateur sleuth tales filled with red herrings and misdirection to prevent the reader from seeing who the killer turns out to be until the final stitch is sewn.<P> Harriet Klausner
