I love the Monica Ferris Needlecraft Mysteries line of books ~ combines two of my favorite things ever, great mystery novels and great needlework! what’s not to love?
This book – or any book in this series – makes a fantastic gift for the needle-crafter on your holiday shopping list (or of course yourself) The details the author goes to in order to capture the world of needlework are astounding, she picks up lingo, fiber specific detail, and more in each and every book.
Murder is in the air everywhere–even at a needlework show. Betsy Devonshire, owner of the shop Crewel World, finds herself snowed in at the convention hotel in Nashville along with her policewoman friend, Jill, and employee, Godwin.
When another shop owner, Belle Hammermill, falls over the railing, plummeting down nine stories into the middle of the atrium, even the most avid sewers look up from their tatting.
Everyone, of course, assumes the fall to be an accident. However, as Betsy, Jill, and Godwin start talking to the show’s attendees, they begin to learn that a selfish and devious Belle had plenty of enemies–and they are all in the hotel.
