Then the body disappears—and she knows she won’t get any rest until she untangles the mysterious threads of the crime….

In Excelsior, Minnesota Betsy Devonshire inherits the million-dollar estate of her late sister Margot. Betsy also suffers nightmares from her homicide investigations which include a friend trying to kill her. Then there is the invading army of people trying to hit on Betsy for a piece of her inheritance. Listening to her friends, Betsy accompanies police officer Jill Cross on a wintry vacation to Nanitoujou for a stitch-in convention.

At the Lake Superior resort, Betsy meets a sad woman who says she is trying to reconcile with her spouse. Later, Betsy enters her room only to find that same woman dead. She obtains assistance from lodge employee James, but reenter her room only to wake up Jill with no corpse in sight. After talking with Jill, Betsy realizes that she went up the wrong stairwell and entered the wrong room. With James and Jill, Betsy retraces her steps. In the room where she saw the body, they meet Eddie Owen, who insists he is alone and estranged from his wife, leading Betsy and Jill to begin to investigate.

The third needlecraft mystery (see CREWEL WORLD and FRAMED IN LACE) is an entertaining amateur sleuth tale. The murder mystery is fun due to the strong cast though it relies too heavily on coincidence to begin the happenings. Betsy is a great character having trouble sleeping and struggling with the horde of individuals wanting her cash. The Excelsior residents add depth to Betsy while the lodge individuals augment the who-done-it. Sub-genre fans will enjoy Monica Ferris¿ UNRAVELED SLEEVE.

I have been reading this series from the first book. It is interesting to see the character, Betsy, as she sorts through the clues to find the killer. Having attended local stitch-ins several years ago, I know how fun they can be. Only Betsy stumbles across disappearing dead bodies and puts herself in danger. On her way to solving the mystery she goes through more twists and turns that a mountain road. Very cleverly crafted. I can't wait for Betsy's next adventure.

I really enjoy these books; she reminds me of Miss Marple in the Agatha Christie mysteries. These are interesting from start to finish!
