Publisher's Summary

The cold, blustery Midwest winters don't exactly agree with Betsy Devonshire, but since moving to Excelsior, Minnestoa, she sure has met a lot of warm, friendly people. So she isn't too surprised when the town's most talented needleworkers volunteer to restore a damaged tapestry that was found in the basement of a local church. Betsy even offers to donate materials for the project, thinking that the free publicity will boost sales at her financially troubled needlecraft shop. But soon Betsy is afraid of losing more than her business - because her good intentions have unleashed some deadly secrets....

Sew much more: listen to another Needlecraft Mystery.

    "Meh."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book. It wasn't so bad that I turned it off, but it was farfetched and just...lame. I didn't care about any of the characters, and even the "needlework" element felt odd, like the author wrote with a needlework catalog beside her, so she could "name drop" brands of fibers now and then.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I knew whodunit long before the book ended; the plot twist of "why" felt forced.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It took a while to get used to the oddly robotic style of the narrator.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Not a chance.


    Any additional comments?

    I like both needlework and mysteries, and really wanted to like this, but I won't be bothering with any of the others in the series.

    "Mechanical reader, slow progression of story"

    I could not listen to a sample before buying this book--the site wasn't working properly. Wish I had! The reader doesn't always use proper inflection and rhythm in her performance, and it distracted me from listening to the storyline. Also, the story moves very very slowly, and I found myself yelling at the ipod to hurry up and get to the point. Finally, it seems the author was encouraged to write a very PC story while plugging Ebay and Amazon, which bugged me. I suggest finding a different story.

    Story
    "Story okay....reader annoying"
    Would you try another book from Monica Ferris and/or Susan Boyce?

    I don't think I would listen to another book narrated by Susan Boyce. If she were the narrator on a book that I was interested in, I most definitely would listen to the sample prior to purchase. Parts sounded like she was completely bored with the book and was just reading to get through it.


    Would you recommend A Stitch in Time to your friends? Why or why not?

    I don't know if I would go as far as to say I would recommend it. I would, however, tell anyone to read the book...not to listen to the audio.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Possibly it would have been better if it had been performed!!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    As I said earlier the story line wasn't all that bad.
