Publisher's Summary

At Crewel World - the needlework shop in Excelsior, Minnesota, run by Betsy Devonshire - an array of beautifully hand-dyed yarns are supplied by Hailey Brent, an avid hand-dyer as well as a customer. But shortly after her most recent delivery of yarn, Hailey is found dead in her home, with a gunshot wound to the head.
Betsy can't imagine who might have killed Hailey, but she is determined to find out. Her investigation takes her into the world of dye stuffs and mordants and the plants that are grown to produce colors for all kinds of textiles. Fascinating stuff, indeed - except when it leads to murder.

Very obvious plot

At one point in the story someone mentions that it doesn't usually take months for the shop owner to solve the mystery. "Months?" I thought. "How can this have taken more than a day or two?". The culprit really is obvious from about 1/3 of the way through despite the very obvious red herrings plonked down all over the place. The amercian narrator is r.e.a.d.i.n.g .v.e.r.y. c.a.r.e.f.u.l.l.y to make sure everything can be heard but as a result sounds like she's recording an audio book for children. I chose this because I found the previous books entertaining and needed something to listen to as I was packing to leave the house but I wouldn't get another with this narrator.
