When adoptee Lucille Jones comes to town researching her roots, Betsy Devonshire notices that she bears a remarkable resemblance to local Jan Henderson. Betsy introduces the look-alikes and they quickly hit it off. But then Jan’s wealthy great-aunt is found dead, helped to her grave by a stiff metal wire—a double-zero knitting needle, in fact. Just like the kind Jan knits with.

Lucille begs Betsy to help clear her new friend’s name. And while going through her aunt’s effects, Jan finds an old pillow lined with an embroidered map of Lake Minnetonka. Betsy intends to follow the threads. Who knows—it could just possibly lead to buried treasure. Or, perhaps, to a secret that someone will kill to keep buried.

    " This is one of the better of the books by Monica Ferris that I have read recently. There were still some errors that annoyed me and some places where she got into a lot of detail for no apparent reason. I don't really think we needed such a detailed description of one character's sewing box, including measurements. It's the only time it appears in the book, so it's not like it was important. Very odd. I'm thinking that I liked this one more because it centered around knitting and I don't knit. That and I liked the descriptions of the antiques and such. I love old things, especially old houses, and the story line just held my interest much more than it has in the past couple of her books. "
