Overview

As full-time owner of the Crewel World needlework shop and part-time sleuth, Betsy Devonshire has unraveled more than her share of tangled clues in the USA Today bestselling Needlecraft Mysteries. But a cryptic embroidered message on a dead woman’s blouse may prove her greatest challenge yet…

When an elderly homeless woman is found dead on the shore of Lake Minnetonka, she’s wearing a blouse embroidered with her will, which bequeaths everything she owns to her niece, Emily Hame—a member of the Monday Bunch at Betsy Devonshire’s Crewel World needlework shop! But Emily’s aunt is the second homeless woman to be found dead in Excelsior, Minnesota. Is someone targeting the homeless, or is it related to a sizable inheritance? Emily seeks the help of her fellow needlecrafter Betsy to discover the common thread between the deaths—and to determine if a murderer may strike again…

I've read other books by this author but this is the first in the needlecraft mystery series for me. I did enjoy it as an easy to read cozy mystery. It didn't knock my socks off, so to speak, but it was a good way to pass the evening it took me to finish it. The characters are likeable and although I guessed "who done it" before it was revealed, there were several likely suspects to give some depth to the storyline. There are a lot of characters but they are woven into the story in a way that doesn't overwhelm or confuse the reader. I enjoy various forms of needlework so the fact that the main character, Betsy Devonshire, is the owner of a needlecraft store called Crewel World appealed to me with the mentions of supplies, techniques, and even an actual embroidery pattern included at the end of the book. Overall I did like this book and look forward to the next one in this series. I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinio of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
