Betsy Devonshire has settled into her new home in Excelsior, Minnesota, as owner of the town’s needlecraft shop. So why is she suffering from terrifying nightmares? She hasn’t a clue - but thinks maybe it would help to get away for a while. With her friend Jill in tow, she heads north for a “stitch-in” at a remote, rustic lodge. But her nightmares only get worse - especially after she finds a dead woman no one else had seen. Then the body disappears - and she knows she won’t get any rest until she untangles the mysterious threads of the crime....

I rate this in my top 10 of "just to relax & enjoy". Although it is not what I would personally call a "gripping" book, again it is a VERY great story that is told in a very clean & calm atmosphere with an easy to listen to narration. I listened to it twice in the first 3 weeks of purchase, and will return to listen yet again without a doubt, as with the other titles in this series.
This house is filled with movies & books - finding one that actually keeps us on the "edge" are very rare. I will say it was a very smooth written and not easily figured out by the end of each chapter.
I am very pleased with her work to date.
"Allergic to Falling Flakes" * due to the weather, the waterfall that is involved, what she was knitting at the time*
I am off to read the next in the series ! I need to soon begin searching for another series of books that will keep me going through the many nights of 3 am knitting as I try to fight the routines of chronic pain.
Being able to relate to the characters and the story line.
Agatha Christi's books
Yes, my friends would enjoy the characters in this book.
Susan Boyce's other books in this series.
The reader helps bring out the individual characters.
West Sunbury, Pa.
These are definately fireside listens. They are far fetched in that the police are so laid back. Hopefully this is not the way in real life, but they make for easy and enjoyable listening.
I am going through the whole series in the proper order, and enjoying each of these books.
