Sintesi dell'editore

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.

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.

Why did I listen to the whole thing?

It was a long and convoluted story, and I didn't like the narrator that much either.

Chapter 11

That’s it. I stopped listening during chapter 11 because I have no idea what was being said.

Wonderful Mystery

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this mystery.

Monica Ferris' books are great 👍.

Loved narration by Susan Boyce.

Can't wait for next mystery.

another fun story

Betsy finds herself in a tough spot when she finds out that the contractor (Foster John) she's hired to fix her roof is believed by everyone in town to be guilty of two murders. Foster John asks Betsy to prove that he isn't a killer.

The best part of this book is probably that we get to see more about Betsy's life. The mystery isn't bad but felt more like an excuse to write more about Betsy & her friends.

I must admit that I find hearing about Betsy & Crewel World to be plenty entertaining even without a mystery.

Best one this far

This is the best book in the series thus far. I don't care for the yammering (nonsense chattering) but I have to keep in mind that a lot of the characters are seniors so I look over that part. I enjoy how Betsy isn't smug when she helps solve a murder. She's very humble and does have a great respect for the Sr. Officer Mike Malloy, she just helps him out. She reminds me of Miss. Marple/ Angela Fletcher/ Agatha Raisin. She's very observant and knows how to sniff out the truth. Which is how she solved this mystery. By following clues that Mike Malloy failed to see, she brought to light how the murder truly happened.

Susan Boyce is a great narrator, but for some reason, this series just isn't showing how talented she is. She sounds very robotic and not very interested in the story she narrating.

Overall, I did like the story and the characters. Everyone in the story plays their part and helps make the story what it is.
Side Note: I'm a fiber crate as well. I tat (handmade lace) and counted crossstitch so I enjoy the conversation regarding the craft.

Roof with a Leak and an Alibi that's Weak

When Betsey contracts Foster Johns to have the roof fixed at Crewel World, her needlecraft shop, she has no idea that Foster Johns has a bad reputation in Excelsior, Minnesota. But when he shows up for his pay after the roof passes inspection, the Monday Bunch is downright rude to Foster Johns and Betsey is flabbergasted at their behavior. After he leaves, she confronts them about how rude they were and they inform her that he's a killer. 😨 So how is it that he's free to walk around conducting business? They tell her that Foster killed Angela and Paul Schmitt five years ago, and that Detective Mike Malloy botched the case, and had to let him go . . .and that Foster had been having a love affair with Angela. A few days later, Foster returns and asks for Betsey's help in clearing his name. She is reluctant to get involved, but after thinking it over, she agrees, telling Foster that she will not protect him if he's guilty. Its interesting how Betsey investigates and learns about all that had happened five years earlier. I love this series. I love the needlework, the people in the stories, and how she eventually gets to the root of the issues, pointing out the smallest of things that even the detectives miss. 😊 A fun listen.

outstanding

loved this unusual mystery. I like the way a innocent man was proved not to have committed the murder.

Unnecessary ghost stories

I usually don’t mind the different scenarios involved each of the mysteries. They were interesting but telling ghost stories are so unnecessary and a waste of time. There were no interesting information that you could gain from it in this story and solving the mystery took too long. I didn’t like this book as much as I did the others.

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.

Needs more chain-stitching

Light, fun listening in spite of random inclusions - Rik Lightfoot, for eg - turfed in with absolutely no relevance to plot. But a sweet little gambol down Amateur Detective Lane. Manage your expectations and you'll enjoy this
