When an elderly homeless woman is found dead on the shore of Lake Minnetonka, she’s wearing a blouse embroidered with her will, which bequeaths everything she owns to her niece, Emily Hame—a member of the Monday Bunch at Betsy Devonshire’s Crewel World needlework shop! But Emily’s aunt is the second homeless woman to be found dead in Excelsior, Minnesota. Is someone targeting the homeless, or is it related to a sizable inheritance? Emily seeks the help of her fellow needlecrafter Betsy to discover the common thread between the deaths—and to determine if a murderer may strike again…
