Publisher's Summary

After a tree falls on Tom Riordan's house, landing him in the hospital, the police discover a mountain of junk piled high in his home. Locals in Excelsior, Minnesota - including Betsy and her Crewel World Monday Bunch - offer to help with the cleanup while Tom recuperates. But when Tom is found murdered in his hospital bed, the sole heir to his property - his cousin, Valentina - becomes the number-one suspect. Betsy believes there's more to the case than meets the eye, but finding clues to the killer's identity in the clutter Tom left behind will be like looking for a needle in a haystack....

    "Loved it!"

    This was one of the best in the series! I so hope that there are more to come, BUT only narrated by Susan Boyce. I had to return the last three because narrator was awful! Story plot and characters are wonderful! Love Betsy and Godwin!!!

    "Very Enjoyable"

    I have read and enjoyed all of the books in this series. The last one was a bit lacking but this one made up for it. This latest installment had plenty of twists and turns, keeping me guessing. The characters were all interesting and enjoyable. As always Betsy and the gang were prominently featured and helped made the story more enjoyable.

    "Another fun mystery!"

    I love these books. I'm always surprised by the killer's identity. Also, as a stitcher myself, I love hearing the different stitching terms used across the country. Glad author is continuing to write in this series.

    "Fun Story Yet,"

    I so enjoy Monica Ferris mysteries! They are fun, 'clean,' and intriguing. However, I didn't feel this story had the depth and intrigue most of her stories have.
    Fun concept!
    I will continue to read Monica's books! I SO enjoy her stories!

    "Disappointing."
    Would you try another book from Monica Ferris and/or Susan Boyce?

    Yes. I've listened to every one of these mysteries.


    What was most disappointing about Monica Ferris’s story?

    It didn't hold up to the rest of the series. The favorite characters -- Jill, Goddy, Shelly, the crazy artist -- were missing. And Betsy seemed like she needed a Prozac.


    What three words best describe Susan Boyce’s performance?

    Consistent, easy to follow.


    Could you see Darned if You Do being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No comment.


    Any additional comments?

    Hopefully the future books will go back to the Betsy we know and love.
