This is the 5th installment of the Needlecraft mysteries. Betsy Devonshire, the owner of Crewel World, sponsors her friend Lars' antique car in the Antique car show. Along the way, one of the other participants turns up dead.

Despite the title of this book, the main focus was on the antique cars and the special "runs" that were made to show them off in the Minnesota countryside. Very little of the action took place in Betsy's Shop Crewel World and the only tie in was that the suspects to the murder met at the needlework shop.

The book was entertaining to a degree but was not one of the best cozies I've read. A dip in status for this series. Let's hope the next is better.
