A Murderous Yarn: A Needlecraft Mystery | [Monica Ferris]

A Murderous Yarn: A Needlecraft Mystery

Heavens to Betsy Devonshire! She never intended to get so caught up in this year's antique car race. But as sponsor of one of the entrants, she can't help but keep a close eye on the outcome - and it's not pretty. One of the drivers never makes it to the finish line. His car is found exploded in flames. Now Betsy and her crafty friends must determine if it was an accident or the work of a jealous competitor. The answer may be in a piece of needlework, but pinning down a suspect won't be easy....

    "Another mystery!!"

    I sound like a parrot when I write these reviews. They are simple, clean mysteries. They border on silly, but they are also enjoyable. It is so hard to find a book that can be listened to by young and old alike.

    I will listen to them all, and hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    Story
    "A great light reading with enjoyable story line!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Murderous Yarn the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is great and easy to listen to. She does a great job in making the story come to life with wonderful narration.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot is wonderful and light, the mystery is something that makes one think. Trying to figure out what the clues are is fun and the characters are wonderful.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story and the intertwining of the antique cars with needle arts is so refreshing.

    Story
    "Least Best - so far."
    What did you like best about A Murderous Yarn? What did you like least?

    I like the characters and their further development. Loved the idea of the antique cars and got more insight to Betsy, the main character. I have listened to several, maybe 5 of these - however this one was a big disappointment. There was not near the investigation by Betsy, we didn't get the little minutia, and logical thinking that Betsy usually goes through. It was a much thinner plot, not as involved, in fact fairly transparent. I will listen to one more, and if it's this 'simple' - then I'm done.

    Story
    "Old Cars and Murder Travel Together!"
    Would you listen to A Murderous Yarn again? Why?

    I will probably listen to this book again and I will also recommend it to friends. I have already bought her next book.


    What other book might you compare A Murderous Yarn to and why?

    I don't really know what would be a good comparison except maybe a murder show on TV that is completed within the 45 minutes. It is simple and straight-forward rather than intricate like Agatha Christie or Arthur Conan Doyle.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The car run through Litchfield, MN. The descriptions of the cars, costumes and action were well-written.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The characters are well-written. You can thing of them as friends very quickly.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a couple things about this audiobook that bothered me. Foremost, that Susan Boyce did not know how to pronounce the names of Minnesota towns. Every time she erred, it took my mind from the story. The second thing, that I could figure out the murderer too soon.
