I have thoroughly enjoyed her other books in the series, however, this one was a disappointment. The writing was poor, the character development sloppy and the story was very choppy. I will give her one more try on the next book.

As the owner of a building containing three apartments, one of which she lives in, and where the Crewel World needlework shop is located, Betsy Devonshire is once again in the middle of a murder case. When Doris Valentine returned from Thailand, she is eager to show Betsy and the Monday Bunch all the beautiful things she found in Bangkok especially silk.----------- Doris also promised an American living in Bangkok that she would deliver a package to an antiquities dealer who has a buyer. She opens the box to find a stone Buddha wrapped inside bubble plastic and a filthy cloth. She throws the cloth out but Betsy sees a beautiful design on it and saves it. The dealer is unhappy that she opened his package when Doris returns to her apartment she finds it ransacked. Needing to get away, she and a few friends stay at an inn only to have a person with a gun demanding she give up the Thai silk.. With the antiques dealer murdered and Doris¿ life threatened, Betsy turns amateur sleuth to uncover who is behind the crime wave and why.------------ Monica Ferris consistently writes delightful cozies with her latest being another fun bloodless tale. Readers are treated to a wonderful cerebral whodunit with clues out in the open so that audience has a chance to solve the case. Betsy (and the audience) is dealing with a difficult inquiry because of the numerous red herrings, false leads, and the threat to her friend. Doris is glad to have her in her corner.--------- Harriet Klausner

Betsy's at it again. A fun read. Good book to cozy up by the fire with hot chocolate and forget the winter weather outside!!

I have read all of Monica's Needlecraft Mysteries and enjoy them very much. Her characters are enjoyable and entertaining. Being a machine quilter and knitter I feel like I would be right at home sitting in the shop taking a class. I don't do counted cross stitch but do enjoy reading about it. If you like mystery and needlecrafts you would enjoy this book.

This was a fun read. I she would put some knitting patterns in the back of the book rather than cross stitch.

This is a good book in the Needlecraft mysteries. These books always have good characters and is easy to read. This is a book I could read over and over.

A better than average mystery. A good example of the modern cozy. The patterns are an extra bonus. I have stitched several of them. The characters are old friends.
