An early entry in the Betsy Devonshire series.
the Excelsior Minnesota art fair is happening, and Betsy is involved volunteering for the fair. When an artisan is murdered there, the list
of suspects is practically endless. Betsy Devonshire wants to help out in the police investigation. Her best friend, Officer Jill Cross, confides that
they have a lead: A bloody footprint in the woodcarvers' booth matches that of a local youth. But when Betsy can't keep the news to herself, Jill gives
Betsy the cold shoulder. Everyone's on pins and needles - and when the family of the kid in question asks Betsy to prove his innocence, she must first
regain Jill's trust, then figure out who had designs on the dead designer. This is not one of Monica Ferris’ best. It’s pretty easy to figure out the murderer early on, but she does move along Godwin’s story in this book and provides tons of information about needlecrafts. I’m not a needlecrafts person, but the discussions of that craft in these books are fascinating even to me. The comic thing to me about these books is that each one starts by stating that Excelsior Minnesota is a quiet town where murder never happens, and in these books, murder happens every time, mostly in Excelsior. In fact, Excelsior is a quiet town along the shore of Lake Minnetonka.
