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!
