Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann Busbey | 1/31/2014

    " I normally enjoy the needlecraft mysteries by Monica Ferris and have read every one. This one was good but had several inconsistencies that distracted from my overall enjoyment of the story. Some were so glaringly obvious that I thought perhaps the book was written by two different people who didn't read what the other person wrote. I would still recommend this book, especially for the bits regarding the needlearts, but you might have to work at overcoming the discrepencies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 1/28/2014

    " The latest in this series...I enjoyed this one more than the last. I like the main character, Betsy Devonshire, but sometimes the stories don't suck me in too quickly. It wasn't quite as simple to solve this one either. A good read for a cold winter's day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Sebesta | 1/23/2014

    " Not one of her better efforts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/8/2014

    " 2.5 stars (extra star for the craft and the shout out to NN and Cindy Wasner's design.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 12/30/2013

    " I've read all of the books in this series, up to this one. Liked this one more than the previous one (Buttons and Bones). Quality and believability of the books vary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki Cline | 12/19/2013

    " This is the 15th in this series of needlecraft mysteries, and while it was interesting, there wasn't enough needlework stuff in it. I did like the depictions of the lives of some homeless women, it was very sympathetic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina Beirne | 12/18/2013

    " I'm done with this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/2/2013

    " Just ok. This one and the last one seem to be quite a departure from the usual. I hope the next one is better, but I will keep reading them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/29/2013

    " I find it really sad that the problem of homelessness is so prevalent that mystery authors can incorporate them as a storyline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Notme | 6/13/2013

    " A nice light cozy mystery - another library pick that was more hit than miss. I might look up other books in this series soon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darleen | 4/13/2013

    " Another in the series. Predictable yet a fun easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 2/25/2013

    " As always, a very clever read, a very cozy setting and characters who present very pleasant company. I recommend this series highly, even if you're not a needlework fan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 2/24/2013

    " I guess I read this book as I've read all of this series. Being a needler I like the store/class atmosphere, wish this story would have stayed closer to home. And why just ending it with the woman who helped Betsy out with the crime. Some events didn't add up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth Ellen | 11/18/2012

    " Quite an interesting story about an embroidery shop owner who solves crimes on the side. I liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Mancini | 11/3/2012

    " not as good as previous books "
