    As owner of the Crewel World needlework shop and part-time sleuth, Betsy Devonshire has become skilled at weaving suspicious threads together. Just back from a trip to Thailand, Doris Valentine is eager to show her stitching friends her souvenirs, which include dazzling Thai silk. She also has a small stone Buddha that she agreed to deliver to an antique store in St. Paul. It's wrapped in a dirty rag, which she throws away.

    Beatrice says: "Worst narrator ever"
    "You'll get hooked on this series"
    Overall

    I've read many of Monica Ferris' mysteries in paperback so I was happy to see there were a few I hadn't read on audible.com. If you like this kind of small town/close community whodunit, you'll love Ms. Ferris' characters, plot action, and clear, move-right-along writing style. I even took up crocheting because of this series of books - it inspired me to try needlework!

    The time is 1981, and Sibyl Danforth has been a dedicated midwife in the rural community of Reddington, Vermont, for 15 years. But one treacherous winter night, in a house isolated by icy roads and failed telephone lines, Sibyl takes desperate measures to save a baby's life. She performs an emergency Caesarean section on its mother, who appears to have died in labor.

    Story

    This is a story about a Vermont midwife who goes outside her area of expertise and gets charged with a crime. The writing is excellent, the story moves along quickly, and this audio performance by Kate Burton is great. You will be thinking about this story after you finish listening to it. Highly recommended.

    Snow is not the only thing falling this December - spirits are, too. That's because this year's needlework convention in Nashville is tragically interrupted when Milwaukee shop owner Belle Hammermill tumbles nine stories to her untimely death. At first, Betsy Devonshire thinks the fall was just an unfortunate accident. The trouble is, Belle's unsavory reputation causes suspicions to flare. She has plenty of enemies with more than enough motive.

    Dale says: "Light, fun, and easy mystery series"
