Sintesi dell'editore

There's a witch running loose in the town of Excelsior, Minnesota, and her brew is… beer. Actually, Leona Cunningham, co-owner of The Barleywine, is a practitioner of Wicca, the nature-based religion that many mistakenly believe to be sorcery or black magic. But that doesn't bother the thirsty crowds - or the Halloween Committee members who have fallen under the spell of Leona's tasty ales.

Then, after one too many pints, local alcohol aficionado Ryan McMurphy accuses Leona of being a real witch, blaming her for the series of accidents that have happened throughout town. When Ryan ends up dead, without a mark on his body, Leona is not only the target of a witch hunt but also the prime suspect. But with Betsy on the case, the murderer doesn't have a ghost of a chance of getting away with it….

Charming "Who Done It?"

These are all good 'three stars.' If a change from teeth grinding suspense and gory descriptions of macabre emotional mayhem are what you seek perhaps a small town 'murder ' may be in order. This is an amusing tale of committee meetings, grudges, brewing beer, needlework and knitting. And a death from maybe natural causes. The sort of story you can put down for a while, and happily return to again and listen some more.

Halloween Cozy

Blackwork was the first book I read in the Needlecraft Series by Monica Ferris and I really enjoyed the story and the narrator. I like cozy mysteries but have trouble finding ones I like the narrator on. This was not only an interesting plot but the narrator was easy to listen to. I know this is not the first book in the series but I wanted a Halloween themed cozy since this is October. If you enjoy cozy mysteries and want a light easy listen with a Halloween theme then try this book. I will be listening to more of this series I just wish Audible had them all.

Great entertainment

I love listening to Susan Boyce. She brings Monica Ferris' characters to life in a way that is so believable, like they are with you in the same room.

Always an interesting story

The characters are so realistic, it's as if you've known them all your life. I learn something of interest every time I read one of Monica Ferris's books. I hope she finishes the latest one she has been working on soon.

didn't hold my interest

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

I have read all the previous books in this series and thought I had listened to some of them. But I must not have because I found the narrator very dull. I won't pick another audio book with this narrator but will continue to READ the books.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

different narrator.
