The art of needlecraft requires patience, discipline, and creativity. So too does the art of detection. Just ask Betsy Devonshire, who's learning that life in a small-town needlecraft shop can reveal an unexpected knack for knitting-and a hidden talent for unraveling crime.
When Betsy Devonshire arrived in Excelsior, Minnesota, all she wanted was to visit her sister Margot and get her life in order. She never dreamed her sister would give her a place to stay and a job at her needlecraft shop. In fact, things had never looked so good-until Margot was murdered.
In a town this friendly, it's hard to imagine who could have committed such a horrible act, but Betsy has a few ideas. There's an ex-employee who wants to start her own needlework store. And there's the landlord who wanted Margot out. Now Betsy's putting together a list of motives and suspects to figure out this killer's pattern of crime.
