This is the first in a cozy mystery series that centers around needlecraft. Since I love mysteries and needlework, I was really looking forward to this and I wasn't disappointed. This book was well-written and well-plotted. I was surprised at the victim and was with Betsy the entire way wanting to solve the murder. I loved the way the little clues were left like breadcrumbs to help you figure it out.My only problem-- it was over too fast!
