When adoptee Lucille Jones comes to town researching her roots, Betsy Devonshire notices that she bears a remarkable resemblance to local Jan Henderson. Betsy introduces the look-alikes and they quickly hit it off. But then Jan's wealthy great-aunt is found dead, helped to her grave by a stiff metal wire - a double-zero knitting needle, in fact. Just like the kind Jan knits with.Lucille begs Betsy to help clear her new friend's name. And while going through her aunt's effects, Jan finds an old pillow lined with an embroidered map of Lake Minnetonka. Betsy intends to follow the threads. Who knows--it could just possibly lead to buried treasure. Or, perhaps, to a secret that someone will kill to keep buried.More

Totally addictive series
I enjoy this series of mysteries and would recommend this title because the story is one of the better ones.
I was engaged in the story from the beginning and really didn't know Who Did It until quite near the end!
Unfortunately, the reader for this particular book had a voice that was VERY hard to listen to -- quite deep with very little contrast in voices with the exception of two characters who shared a deep southern drawl. In fact, one of the deepest character voices was that of the female protagonist which made it very hard to distinguish characters when she was in a dialog with a male character. This is the only book I have listened to by this reader and I will have to think about whether I would download another one.
Monica Ferris is a delightful writier with an eye to the community in Minnesota where her stories are set and that keeps me returning!
