    "An early entry in the Betsy Devonshire series."

    the Excelsior Minnesota art fair is happening, and Betsy is involved volunteering for the fair. When an artisan is murdered there, the list
    of suspects is practically endless. Betsy Devonshire wants to help out in the police investigation. Her best friend, Officer Jill Cross, confides that
    they have a lead: A bloody footprint in the woodcarvers' booth matches that of a local youth. But when Betsy can't keep the news to herself, Jill gives
    Betsy the cold shoulder. Everyone's on pins and needles - and when the family of the kid in question asks Betsy to prove his innocence, she must first
    regain Jill's trust, then figure out who had designs on the dead designer. This is not one of Monica Ferris’ best. It’s pretty easy to figure out the murderer early on, but she does move along Godwin’s story in this book and provides tons of information about needlecrafts. I’m not a needlecrafts person, but the discussions of that craft in these books are fascinating even to me. The comic thing to me about these books is that each one starts by stating that Excelsior Minnesota is a quiet town where murder never happens, and in these books, murder happens every time, mostly in Excelsior. In fact, Excelsior is a quiet town along the shore of Lake Minnetonka.

    "holds my interest"

    I enjoyed the story, it moves along without becoming boring, I enjoy sewing so the subject of the needle shop does interest me. I like how she puts the pieces together.

    "OK story - irritating narration"
    Would you try another book from Monica Ferris and/or Susan Boyce?

    very irritating narrator - monotone story OK for a time filler


    If you’ve listened to books by Monica Ferris before, how does this one compare?

    same as others mediocre


    How could the performance have been better?

    change the narator

    "A nice cozy mystery"

    This was an interesting book and I enjoyed reading it. Ferris does a good job of developing all of the characters and establishing motives. However, if you are a mystery lover you will probably figure out the villain right away. Even though I was 90% percent sure of who did it I still wanted to know why and see the development of my favorite characters in the book. You won't be disappointed if you listen to this book.
