Blackwork: A Needlecraft Mystery | [Monica Ferris]

Blackwork: A Needlecraft Mystery

There's a witch running loose in the town of Excelsior, Minnesota, and her brew is…beer. Actually, Leona Cunningham, co-owner of The Barleywine, is a practitioner of Wicca, which many mistakenly believe to be sorcery or black magic. Then, after one too many pints, local alcohol aficionado Ryan McMurphy accuses Leona of being a real witch, blaming her for the series of accidents. When Ryan ends up dead, without a mark on his body, Leona is not only the target of a witch hunt but also the prime suspect.

Publisher's Summary

There's a witch running loose in the town of Excelsior, Minnesota, and her brew is… beer. Actually, Leona Cunningham, co-owner of The Barleywine, is a practitioner of Wicca, the nature-based religion that many mistakenly believe to be sorcery or black magic. But that doesn't bother the thirsty crowds - or the Halloween Committee members who have fallen under the spell of Leona's tasty ales.

Then, after one too many pints, local alcohol aficionado Ryan McMurphy accuses Leona of being a real witch, blaming her for the series of accidents that have happened throughout town. When Ryan ends up dead, without a mark on his body, Leona is not only the target of a witch hunt but also the prime suspect. But with Betsy on the case, the murderer doesn't have a ghost of a chance of getting away with it….

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    Story
    "Charming "Who Done It?""

    These are all good 'three stars.' If a change from teeth grinding suspense and gory descriptions of macabre emotional mayhem are what you seek perhaps a small town 'murder ' may be in order. This is an amusing tale of committee meetings, grudges, brewing beer, needlework and knitting. And a death from maybe natural causes. The sort of story you can put down for a while, and happily return to again and listen some more.

    Story
    "Halloween Cozy"

    Blackwork was the first book I read in the Needlecraft Series by Monica Ferris and I really enjoyed the story and the narrator. I like cozy mysteries but have trouble finding ones I like the narrator on. This was not only an interesting plot but the narrator was easy to listen to. I know this is not the first book in the series but I wanted a Halloween themed cozy since this is October. If you enjoy cozy mysteries and want a light easy listen with a Halloween theme then try this book. I will be listening to more of this series I just wish Audible had them all.

    Story
    "didn't hold my interest"
    Would you try another book from Monica Ferris and/or Susan Boyce?

    I have read all the previous books in this series and thought I had listened to some of them. But I must not have because I found the narrator very dull. I won't pick another audio book with this narrator but will continue to READ the books.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    different narrator.
