The stitchers of the Embroiderers Guild raised over twenty thousand dollars for charity—but the representative who accepted the check at the annual convention disappeared with it. It turns out that he’s the husband of the local chapter president, Allie Germaine, who insists on his innocence. But if Bob Germaine didn’t pocket the check, who did? And where is Bob now? Since needlework shop owner Betsy Devonshire has broken her leg horseback riding, solving the latest crime will have to be a group project.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni berkshire | 2/9/2014

    " Did not like this as well as the other books in the series. It just seemed lame and mostly about the assistant, Goddie, who is not my favorite character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindig | 2/2/2014

    " Always interesting; makes me want to learn to knit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Cline | 1/24/2014

    " This one is interesting in that the narrative goes back and forth between investigators Betsy, who's laid up with a broken leg, and Godwin, taking over for her in the interview department, and the probable bad guy, who can't remember doing anything wrong. Another plus is a crow with a broken wing that Betsy is temporarily taking care of. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Constance | 1/13/2014

    " another "themed" mystery series. OK quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grey853 | 1/9/2014

    " This was a disappointing book. The main character breaks a leg and is confined through most of it in her apartment. She has her assistant do most of the sleuthing, so there's a lot of repetition. Plus, there are many point of view shifts, which I found annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Deboer | 1/4/2014

    " This book in the series is different than others in that the reader knows very early on who committed the crime, and much of the why and how, so we're rooting for Betsy and her friends to collect the clues and figure it out, too. It is written well enough and still has enough suspense that it is enjoyable to read. We are left wondering how Betsy and Godwin will find their clues and put them together, which keeps enough interest to keep reading. This is a different format than the others in the series but a fun change. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Savonick | 1/3/2014

    " A good read. You don't have to be into needlework to enjoy Ferris' books. (I just skip over the parts that are boring to me.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 1/1/2014

    " I love these books and I knitted the pattern at the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Benducci | 12/5/2013

    " I love this series. It is a fluff mystery, a cozy which is fine to read quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb Sharp | 11/24/2013

    " This was the first book that I read for this series and it got me hooked on this series! I like all the main characters in this series and enjoy reding about how they work to solve the murders. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cece | 8/22/2013

    " The parellel structure in this one worked well-and Godwin came up trumps-but the understory of the animal was a little farfetched. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 1/7/2013

    " Betsy does it again...with reasonable thinking and good questions, she is able to sort through the mystery and you can too. I am reading all of Monica Ferris' books in order because I like her style and they are very quick reads...2 days each. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy Gerbode | 12/19/2012

    " Another good mystery in the series ... nothing fantastic, but quick and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca Evers | 10/30/2012

    " Cute --- almost too cute. I think I like to knit more than I like to listen to stories about knitters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 6/16/2012

    " Godwin must solve a mystery while Betsy is homebound with a broken leg "

    " Not one of the better mysteries in this series. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patt | 10/16/2011

    " Goddy is the hero in this book because Betsy is hindered by a broken leg and is stuck in her apartment. She does do her usual deducing and sends Goddy to do the footwork to catch the killer. An interesting change to seeing Betsy doing all the sleuthing! "
