    Another fun mystery

    I always look forward to the next book in the series. This is as good as the others.

    A well crafted mystery with an interesting plot

    Believable characters in a small mid-western town. For those who do crafts there is even a cross-stitch pattern included, but you don't need to be a crafter to enjoy the story. Very well written.

    I can't wait for the next one

    This is the third in a series--I snatched it upo as soon as I finished the second. I was distressed to find that the fourth is not yet available! Ferris is fulfilling the promise of her first book. The characters are becoming old friends that I'm pleased to see. Ferris is a skillful writer who avoids many of the problems that make ruin a series: the characters' situations change so that she doesn't beat a subplot into the ground; her middle-aged heroine, who is definitely not a Valkyrie, has more sense than to confront dangerous, desperate people alone. I also like that this is a mystery, concentrating on the intellectual puzzle, not a thriller relying on gore, sex, super people, and an overwrought plot.

    Excellent amateur sleuth tale

    Following her divorce of her two-timing husband, Betsy Devonshire left California to visit her sister Margot in Eureka, Minnesota. However, someone murdered her sibling, owner of the Crewel World needlework store. Betsy investigated and solved the case. She also took over the running of Margot¿s store as she made a place for herself in the community. Subsequently, Betsy solved two more homicides, becoming known as the town¿s amateur sleuth. <P>While driving during a blizzard, Betsy¿s car veers of the road. After her release from the hospital, she learns that someone cut her brake line. She returns to the hospital when someone adds arsenic as a special ingredient in one of the many dishes her neighbors gave her while she recuperated from the car incident. Upon her latest return home, her best friend, a police officer, acts as a bodyguard, but she cannot stop the assailant from trying to burn down Betsy¿s store. Tired of being a target, Betsy turns on her amateur sleuth jets and begins to search for the culprit before she becomes a permanent victim. <P>A STITCH IN TIME, the latest needlecraft mystery is a fun to read amateur sleuth tale in which the why is more important than who did it. Readers struggle to find out why someone tries to kill Betsy, which turns the cerebral mystery into a brainteaser. The reappearance of secondary charcaters from previous novels make this book feel like a homecoming for fans, but make no mistake, Monica Ferris¿ series clearly belongs to Betsy. <P>Harriet Klausner
