Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Bob Germaine receives a check for $24,000 for the charity he works for and promptly disappears. Betsy Devonshire, laid up with a badly broken leg, must rely on her friends to investigate. With a pattern or two included to cheer the needleworker, this charming series will appeal to cozy fans. Ferris lives in Minnesota. [See Prepub Mystery, LJ8/07.]


—Jo Ann Vicarel
Kirkus Reviews
Theft, murder and knitting in Minnesota. Betsy Devonshire, who was instrumental in helping the Embroiderers Guild raise more than $20,000 for the National Heart Coalition, breaks her leg in a riding accident before she can attend the convention. Her store manager, Godwin DuLac, who goes in her place, reports that a major scandal is brewing. Bob Germaine, who accepted the check for the Coalition, is missing along with the proceeds. His wife, certain Bob is innocent and in danger, begs Betsy to find him. Goddy, whose gaydar went off when Bob smiled at him, is sure that Bob took the opportunity to start a new life out of the closet. But Betsy is doubtful. Unable to get around and ask questions, she tutors the eager Goddy, who cruises the gay community and comes up with the name of Bob look-alike Stoney Durand. When Bob's naked body is found in the trunk of his car, both the police and Goddy must abandon their theories. At length, Betsy and Goddy come up with an alternative scenario. The housebound Betsy is harboring an injured crow awaiting transport to another state whose laws do not include euthanizing injured wild animals. Betsy, Goddy, the police and the crow all play a role in solving the case. A simple case for Betsy (Sins and Needles, 2006, etc.), and a quick and easy read. The hardest part of the exercise is the obligatory knitting pattern.

    Disappointing 11th

    I own and have read all 11 books in this series, five of them autographed by the author. This book was very out of step from the others. Some of the characters are beneath the dignity of previous books. I love needlepoint and mysteries, but Betsy and needlework were not real features of this book. Needlework references seemed to be artificial additions to the story. Ms. Ferris, please bring back realistic needlework references and all the personalities of Crewel World. Perhaps sending some of them on a needlework centered trip. China or the British Isles would be very interesting destinations with rich histories in needlework!

    refreshing amateur sleuth

    The Embroiderers Guild of America (EGA) local chapter members feel great that their stitching efforts earned $24,000 for the Heart Coalition charity fund raiser. However, after handing over the check to a man sent by the coalition to the EGA banquet, they since learn he vanished without turning in the money. Betsy Devonshire, owner of Crewel World, is apartment-bound, after breaking her leg from falling off a horse while riding with friend and customer Jill Cross Larson. The store manager make that Vice President of Operations Godwin still believes she should investigate what happened to the check raised by their clients the EGA, but Betsy insists she is immobile and drugged so cannot follow clues nor think of solutions. Still he makes the case that she can run the case from her home while he follows her orders with the street work. As they work in tandem to learn what happened to the check Tony Milan laid up also with a broken leg caused by a drunken driver running a light wonders about the same check. ---- Having Betsy lead a distant investigation makes for a refreshing amateur sleuth as the heroine has to go over every step one stitch at a time. Series fans will enjoy the inquiry as Godwin fumbles to be Betsy¿s field operative while she is his handler. The missing person mystery is cleverly designed, but it is the Betsy-Godwin sleuthing combo that makes KNITTING BONES a terrific tale. ---- Harriet Klausner

    Mildly entertaining but predictable.

    This is the first time I have read one of these "Knitting series". The book was mildly entertaining but I found the ending to be predictable. The introduction of a crow into an injured woman's home just seemed bizarre to me. It was good reading for my daily train ride but it didn't keep me up at night finishing the book.

    Enjoy some needlework while you sit out this plodding plot and wait for the next installment. Hopefully it will be worth the wait. This one wasn't.
