    " Great read with small-town characters, and you don't need to be a needlecrafter to enjoy the story. An interesting take on smuggling art objects into the country. "

    " Always enjoyed the Needlecraft Mysteries even though I do no needlecraft myself. The setting and characters were interesting and fun. This one seemed to have a LOT of needlecraft and not so much plot although what storyline there was I enjoyed. "
