Betsy Devonshire has settled into her new home in Excelsior, Minnesota, as owner of the town’s needlecraft shop. So why is she suffering from terrifying nightmares? She hasn’t a clue—but thinks maybe it would help to get away for a while. With her friend Jill in tow, she heads north for a “stitch-in” at a remote, rustic lodge. But her nightmares only get worse—especially after she finds a dead woman no one else had seen. Then the body disappears—and she knows she won’t get any rest until she untangles the mysterious threads of the crime.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 2/20/2014

    " Not my favorite in the series. The ending seemed a little over dramatic to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/19/2014

    " I like this series. This one is set at a stitch-in held at a remote guest lodge. This time I only guessed part of the answer to the mutfer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cece | 2/12/2014

    " Betsy's crisis of conscience got a little old, because after all, if the character stops being curious the series ends. It felt false. Otherwise it was a good mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy Gerbode | 1/19/2014

    " Another mystery and needlework package ... good light reading for a relaxing evening. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julaine | 1/17/2014

    " Wasn't a bad little mystery, but kind of grated on my nerves that the main character kept going on and on about how she didn't want to be involved but just couldn't help it. "

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

    " Another enjoyable slice of Betsyism's and the mysteries she manages to get herself involved in. I found there was even more needlework stuff in this one, which I am sure needleworkers love - but which means little to those of us who never even think of picking up a needle. I enjoyed the different setting with this one too, I think I would like a few days at Naniboujou lodge - but I would be sitting by the fire reading - not sewing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki Cline | 1/5/2014

    " The folks in town get a break from murder when Betsy and Jill go to a stitch-in at a northern resort. Of course, they stumble into a murder there. I did miss the people from the town, but it's always nice to meet new characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faye | 1/2/2014

    " My aunt picked this one for me, and it's become another new series I'm hooked on. It's filled with lots of needlepoint geekery, but I like it all the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/18/2013

    " Betsy Devonshire is having nightmares and decides she needs to take a break from her needlework shop. She and her police officer friend Jill travel to a stitch in in northern Minnesota. There Betsy discovers the body of a woman that no one else even remembers seeing at the hotel. A light mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kitty | 12/14/2013

    " In an attempt to get away from sluething, Betsy takes vacation with Jill, to a weekend stitch-in. But another mystery falls in her lap. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 11/25/2013

    " I wanted to read this book because of the location (Naniboujou Lodge). Parts above the lodge were good but the overall book was a little old ladyish. Kind of Murder She Wrote or Red Hat Society. Not my cup of tea. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynne | 11/21/2013

    " Betsy decides she needs a break and so with her friend Jill they attends a "stitch-in" at a remote, rustic lodge. She finder a dead woman that no one else has seen. Then the body disappears. Betsy is in the thick of things trying to figure out what happened and prove she isn't crazy. "

    " Unraveled Sleeve (Needlecraft Mystery) by Monica Ferris (2001) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 9/9/2013

    " The fourth book set at a resort in Northern Minnesota and seemed very much like other resorts I have visited. Enjoyed this mystery and the cross country skiing, snow shoes etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 7/24/2013

    " This is an enjoyable book. It isn't life shatteringly insightful; but I read for escape often, don't you. The characters are characters. The events are typical and believable. I relate to the characters. What's not to like about Monica Ferris' Needlecraft Mystery series? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 6/21/2013

    " I love this series and can't get enough of it. It helps that I do counted crossstitch "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb Sharp | 4/2/2013

    " I read this book in one sitting, it was such a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Rodd | 2/10/2013

    " I really liked this super fun, easy read. It had a firm plot line with a mystery that the reader could piece together if they tried, no red herrings or rabbit-factors sprung out of the hat at the last minute. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 12/17/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. I felt like I was at the lodge with them working on my counted cross stitch too. It's 115 outside so it was great to think about cold weather too, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deena | 11/17/2012

    " I didn't like this one as much as the other one (which was the second in the series), because some of the characters were really unrealistic to me. However, it was still cute - a nice, light read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 10/10/2012

    " Another light fun needlecraft mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Havlovic | 9/24/2012

    " I liked the book. It's a quick, easy, fun, read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margarita | 8/28/2012

    " The protagonist, Betsy Devonshire, was, I think supposed to be crusty but loveable. I thought she was just sort of obnoxious. The book was pretty good, but I am not sure I will read any more in the series. It appealed to me only because of the needlework angle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 3/27/2012

    " This book was a little hard to figure out. Keep reading if you get stuck and pay attention to all the evidence. I didn't actually solve the murder, but I had suspicions that panned out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lanadal1 | 12/9/2011

    " I did not like this book nearly as well as the first three books in this series. The book is set in another town at a "stitch-in" -- thus, most of the familiar characters are not in this book. Hopefully the next book will be set in Excelsior. "
