At Crewel World - the needlework shop in Excelsior, Minnesota, run by Betsy Devonshire - an array of beautifully hand-dyed yarns are supplied by Hailey Brent, an avid hand-dyer as well as a customer. But shortly after her most recent delivery of yarn, Hailey is found dead in her home, with a gunshot wound to the head.
Betsy can't imagine who might have killed Hailey, but she is determined to find out. Her investigation takes her into the world of dye stuffs and mordants and the plants that are grown to produce colors for all kinds of textiles. Fascinating stuff, indeed - except when it leads to murder.

Great story - Monica Ferris has done it again! The performance left a lot to be desired in my estimation. Susan Boyce put emphasis on the wrong words - used inappropriate inflections, and was, in my opinion, hard to listen to.
Traditional well flowing mystery by Monica Ferris. Entertaining and a great listen
Hello, if you are going to have private secret conversations, you might want to look around and see what and who is around you. Don't just go to the back of the nursery and think because you are at the back of a business there is nothing on the other side of the fence. Duh.
It only took two sittings, as I had a slow time at work and could listen while I did computer work.
One of her best!!
This is the third book in the whole series I've listend to. The others I've read as paperbacks. This show's how much I love this series.
I don't like the narrating of Susan Boyce. She speaks kind of 'choppy' and there is no 'live' in any of the characters. Sorry to say so, but I guess the followings I will read as paperbacks again.
