Publisher's Summary

Betsy is still new enough to Excelsior, Minnesota, to not know a scandal when she causes one. So, when she hires Foster Johns to fix her roof, the resulting uproar has her needled.

The whole town has pinned a five-year-old unsolved double murder on him. Betsey believes Johns when he says he isn't guilty. But she'll have to use every stitch of her sleuthing skills to tie up all the loose ends that will prove his innocence once and for all.

Good story, however there seems to be an agenda for the writer.

The story overall is good. I don't understand why the author feels the need to make some characters gay when their sexual preference had absolutely no bearing on the story.

Another in the Crewel World series.

This is a Betsy Devonshire series book, the sixth one. In this book, Betsy hires a general contractor to replace the roof on her store. His work is very good, and when it is completed, and he comes in to be paid, all the people in the Monday knitting group suddenly go silent. After he leaves, they inform her that everyone is sure that he killed his mistress and her husband five years ago and got away with the murder. He has been persona non grata in the town since. He asked Betsy to do some sleuthing and prove that he was innocent of the murders. She begins her investigation and ultimately finds out the truth. I like these books for the characters involved and for the detailed descriptions of needlecraft work and designs. But this one, because it began on Halloween day, had a sub-theme of ghost stories that I found a little tedious. All in all, it was a fast read and entertaining.
