This mystery will keep you on your toes guessing.

I read the book many years ago when it first came out in paperback and enjoyed it. So when the audiobook became available here in the UK, I brought it.

This is the second time that I have listened to Crewel World, and it is still an entertaining read/listen. Well plotted and written, with a good set of characters. This mystery will keep you on your toes guessing.

Personally I thought Susan Boyce did a very good job in the narration, and I will be listening to more of this series in the future.

Had to abandon it

This was SO boring for me - and so generally popular with other readers - that I think it was just that I didn't like it. I listened whilst the scene was set and wotsername pootled around in her craft shop patronising her friend. No real life small business owner would ever have the internal dialogue she has with herself ("Will I have time to fit in this enormously valuable commission from a customer who is offering to pay me upfront? Hmm, let's see"). When it started banging on about her characterful cat I pretty much thought, kill me now. And turned it off. If this seems a bit harsh, a passing relative overheard it playing and asked me what was that drivel I was listening to, so it wasn't just me. However, I notice there are several books in the series so there must be readers who like it.
