    Of all Monica Ferris s books that I ve read so far I m reading them in order , I think this was the least satisfying of them all The writing was consistent with her previous work an easy going casual style The plot though had too many holes in it there were too many questions left unanswered It seemed as if the author wasted too much time on describing how Betsy hired a lawyer and debated bailing Goddy out and then suddenly realized she had hit some mystery page limit and had to finish the Of all Monica Ferris s books that I ve read so far I m reading them in order , I think this was the least satisfying of them all The writing was consistent with her previous work an easy going casual style The plot though had too many holes in it there were too many questions left unanswered It seemed as if the author wasted too much time on describing how Betsy hired a lawyer and debated bailing Goddy out and then suddenly realized she had hit some mystery page limit and had to finish the book lickity split The ending itself was unsatisfying one chapter the murderer is arrested, the next is months later and we are told how everything has resolved Except everything isn t explained like how the police could conclude that someone who committed other crimes could also be responsible for Nye s murder Why did the murderer decide to kill Nye now, rather than months earlier Why would the police not be able to break the passwords on Nye s computer and the encryption, when Betsy s teen friend did it in a few hours If they did, why didn t the police suspect that there might be other people besides Goddy who might murder Nye What evidence did the police have that made Goddy a suspect How did the police figure out that Betsy couldn t give Goddy an alibi Andfundamentally why did Nye make the secret plans he did Why was he finally tossing Goddy out Maybe it is me, but just saying that he is a conflicted homosexual doesn t explain his actions Ferris s books are light and fluffy that s one of the reasons I like them but they usually are light, fluffy but solidly thought out mysteries This one wasn t

    Another light, slightly fluffy read perfect for a cold miserable weekend In this one Betsy s shop manager Godwin is in a lot of trouble, as he is arrested for Murder Thankfully Betsy comes to his aid, and begins her own investigation into the murder Godwin is my favourite character in this series so it was great having him so much in middle of the story There were a few places where I though Goddy s reactions to things were unrealistic, especially bearing in mind his boyfriend has just die Another light, slightly fluffy read perfect for a cold miserable weekend In this one Betsy s shop manager Godwin is in a lot of trouble, as he is arrested for Murder Thankfully Betsy comes to his aid, and begins her own investigation into the murder Godwin is my favourite character in this series so it was great having him so much in middle of the story There were a few places where I though Goddy s reactions to things were unrealistic, especially bearing in mind his boyfriend has just died If I was being horribly picky I would have to say the characters have little depth to them in general, but this is a light cosy read, and not meant to be anything else

    I guess I ve been expecting this scenario from the very beginning it was just set up a little too much This is not a bad thing, in fact I wanted it to happen very much Not the murder, just the innocent accused of it, because I knew Betsy would prove herself again I was not disappointed If that gives away anything about the plot, I d be surprised haha Hopefully people still go into this a surprised, although I believe if you ve read the rest of the series you ll expect this too I adored thi I guess I ve been expecting this scenario from the very beginning it was just set up a little too much This is not a bad thing, in fact I wanted it to happen very much Not the murder, just the innocent accused of it, because I knew Betsy would prove herself again I was not disappointed If that gives away anything about the plot, I d be surprised haha Hopefully people still go into this a surprised, although I believe if you ve read the rest of the series you ll expect this too I adored this book, and this was an excellent example of the series.Five stars

    Even though I am not a needlecrafter myself I enjoy this series and others that deal with sewing, quilting, crochet, knitting Betsy Devonshire is a very likeable character and I love her shop manager, Godwin I would recommend this series whether you are a needlecrafter or not because it is a goodread.


  9. Karen Parker Karen Parker says:

    I listen to the audio books I like the series, the characters, and the mysteries, but this is a new reader and I don t like the reader as much as the one who has been reading the eight books before this So I found that I didn t like this book as well as the previous ones, but it may not have had anything to do with the book If you haven t read any of this series, I recommend starting with an earlier book than this one.

    Godwin and John have a fight and John throws Godwin out Godwin stays with Betsy hoping that John will cool down and invite him back home When John doesn t call and doesn t show up for work, Godwin and Betsy go looking for John and find him dead Godwin is the logical suspect and is immediately arrested As Godwin struggles in jail, Besty uses all her skills to find out the truth Another good read with another book where I couldn t figure out who did it until almost the end
