3.0 out of 5 stars The Appeal is in the Subject Matter April 2 2003
By Dallas
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is appealing to stitchers, but not so much for real mystery fans. It's a passable book, not totally predictable, but in some areas seems a bit forced. Still, as big fan of needlework, it's always exciting for me to read about it, particularly to see it combined with a cozy mystery.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The third book in the needlework series. When a damaged tapestry is discovered in a church closet no one expects it to cause an uproar, let alone murder. Needlework shop owner Betsy Devonshire sets out to learn the truth before the threats get any closer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a comfortable and cozy book! Aug. 19 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having enjoyed the first in this series, I somehow missed the second. I won't miss any more, that's for sure. This third book is as comfy and cozy to wrap yourself up in, as a much-loved, hand-knitted sweater or afghan. Betsy Devonshire is a marvelous character, one that you can easily believe in, and wish to have as a friend; furthermore, she's a perfect match for Excelsior, Minnesota.
Betsy had returned to the cold midwest from San Diego for a much-needed respite from her immediate past while renewing the relationship with her sister, Margo. Unfortunately, Margo was the victim in book one, but she left her business "Crewel World" to Betsy, who, in spite of knowing little about the world of needlework, endeavored to settle into it.
Learning how to run a business, as well as learning about needlework exposes her to all sort of people and situations, while allowing her to use her not inconsiderable curiosity to help the small-town police department solve persistent puzzles.
In this episode, it's very near to Christmas, and while Trinity Episcopal Church prepares for the holiday season, it is also preparing for a major renovation. To the surprise of all, a mildewed, hand-worked tapestry is discovered hidden away in a closet. When it's discovered to be the work of the previous rector's wife, all concerned decide to restore the piece as a decoration for the new addition.
Immediately, strange things begin to happen to Betsy, who has agreed to furnish any yarn necessary for the renovation of the tapestry. One of the strangest, while totally unconnected, is a visit from her former husband, Hal the Pig, who seems to sincerely want to mend his fences and re-establish the relationship with Betsy. Not surprisingly, she is of the totally opposite opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go, Betsy, go! June 7 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Betsy Devonshire is certainly busy stitching and sleuthing. With each book in the series she is getting better at both, as is Ms. Ferris's writing. This was the best so far. The characters feel real and are getting to be my friends. I miss them when the book is over. Though from the South, I understood and enjoyed the hot dish and Lutheran references. Stitching, humor, and a good mystery--who could ask for anything more! I can hardly wait for the next book. One problem: reading makes me want to cross stitch and stitching makes me want to read. What's a girl to do?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun read for fiber fans Jan. 21 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Betsy Devonshire series is a fun read for any fan of cozy mysteries and is particularly fun if: 1)you know what "LYS" stands for (local yarn store), and/or 2)Minnesota figures in your life. I'm lucky enough to fall into both categories. So, one minute I enjoy the chatter about worsted weight versus sport weight yarn and in another moment, I laugh out loud at the discussion of "hot dishes" (called casseroles by the rest of us in the USA).
Ferris is improving with each episode. In this book, Betsy keeps having scary "accidents" and can't figure out why someone would be out to get her. We, the readers, know of course. It's fun to follow the twists and turns as Betsy figures out what's up. Catching the culprit is almost an anti-climax.
A fun read with lots of snow and Christmas for atmosphere. Now, if they'd only produce the series on audio-tape so I could knit and "read" at the same time!

I found all three of her books enjoyable. They were interesting, fast to read and also great characters. If you are looking for a nice entertaining book to read, please read one of her books. I read all three in about a week and can't wait for her next one! Even lost sleep, since I couldn't put them down.Enjoy!
