Overview

In the USA Today bestselling Needlecraft Mysteries, Betsy Devonshire has her hands tied between running her needlework shop and turning her sharp eye for deduction to solving crimes…
 
The Monday Bunch and other local knitters are participating in a fund-raising auction to save a community center, creating a growing pile of stuffed animals and toys right in front of the auctioneers as the audience bids. Among those contributing the most knitted goods is temperamental businesswoman Maddy Hanover—who keels over halfway through the event.
 
After she is pronounced DOA, an autopsy reveals that Maddy had been poisoned. But how? And by whom? One of the prime suspects is her ruthless business rival Joe Mickels, who lost a bitterly contested property bid to Maddy.
 
When Mickels pleads his innocence to Betsy, she reluctantly believes him. But if Betsy is going to uncover the real murderer’s identity, she must first untangle the knots Maddy made in her relationships throughout her life…

I have to admit I love this series, maybe because I’m originally from Excelsior, MN. It’s fun to know about places Ms. Ferris talks about and even some people I know that play minor characters. That, and I’m a dedicated needle worker as well (though I don’t knit.) In her nineteenth book in the series, she is able to keep the plot fresh and interesting. She also keeps developing her characters, even the minor ones. It’s been fascinating watching how Betsy changes over the years. And I love Goddie! Who couldn’t? I hope she keeps writing for many years to come, because she’s one of my favorite authors

Author Monica Ferris has crafted characters that readers feel comfortable with like neighbors down the street. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first time readers of her Needlecraft Mystery series or a returning fan, the characters will seem like old friends. The story flows smoothly and at a good pace. The twists and turns will hold your attention until the very end. Ferris keeps the story fresh and entertaining even though KNIT YOUR OWN MURDER is the 19th installment in the series. There’s a good mix of suspense, friendship, and humor combined with needlecraft tidbits and a knitting pattern. This is an enjoyable cozy mystery and readers don’t have to be needlecraft buffs to delight in the tantalizing plot and unique characters. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

Another wonderfully crafted story in the Needlecraft Mystery series. You would think after eighteen books in a series there would be no more stories to tell. Well, you, like me, would be wrong. Book nineteen in the Needlecraft Mystery series, KNIT YOUR OWN MUDRDER, is just as entertaining as all the books before it. Author Monica Ferris has penned another magnificent installment in her Needlecraft series. Mystery, intrigue, and well developed and multilayered characters are all skillfully knitted together to create a can’t-put-it-down book that you’ll remember long after reading. With a story like KNIT YOUR OWN MURDER, it’s truly no wonder this series has had such a loyal following. Hats off to you Monica Ferris! Don’t forget to check out the back of the book for a fun knitting pattern!
