Publisher Comments:

Crime solving is a group project in the latest installment of this USA Today bestselling series.

The stitchers of the Embroiderers Guild are thrilled to have raised over $20,000 for charity-but they're less pleased when the representative who accepts the check disappears with it. After breaking her leg in a fall from a horse, Betsy's confined to her apartment and loopy on pain killers-she can't possibly investigate. But Godwin, her store manager, insists that he can do the legwork. Little do they know that a man across town has a similar injury-and he too is wondering what happened to that check. Betsy and Godwin have got to figure it out first, or it'll be a bad break for everyone.

Review:

"In Ferris's 11th crafty cozy (after Sins and Needles), former cop Betsy Devonshire, now proprietor of the Crewel World needlework shop in Excelsior, Minn., tries to solve a mystery from home while recovering from a horseback riding accident. At the annual Embroiderers' Guild of America convention, which Betsy missed thanks to her busted leg, National Heart Coalition exec Robert Germaine accepted a check for a substantial charitable donation and then disappeared with it. Betsy reluctantly takes on the case when Germaine's wife begs for her help and Godwin 'Goddy' Dulac, Betsy's overeager assistant, offers to do the legwork. Meanwhile, Tony Milan, an ex-con who was planning to mug Germaine for the check, wakes up three days later with a concussion. He's lacking some vital memories thanks to a car wreck, but he knows something's up when he discovers he arrived at the hospital wearing Germaine's suit and watch. Serious mystery readers might yawn at this less than intricate yarn, but Ferris's fans will be charmed." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Other than the error that Betsy was a former cop - she was in the Navy-the story is very good, holding full interest to the end. In all of her books in the series, the correct language and freedom from vulgarities so common to most of published books, adds to the interest and readability. Jill is the cop, sophie is the overweight cat who helps just by being a calmitive influence on customers and Goddy. She has kept me up until hours past bedtime because I just have to know who did it and how they were caught.
