    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.
