Publisher's Summary

When an elderly homeless woman is found dead on the shore of Lake Minnetonka, she's wearing something that holds the key to her identity but also opens up a mystery. Embroidered on her blouse is her will, in which she bequeaths everything she owns to her niece: Emily Hame, a member of the Monday Bunch at Betsy Devonshire's Crewel World needlework shop! Emily's aunt turns out to be the second homeless woman to be found dead under mysterious circumstances. It's up to Betsy to discover the common thread between the deaths - and to determine if a murderer may strike again.

One of the better entries in the series

If you could sum up Threadbare in three words, what would they be?

With Threadbare, Monica Ferris has gotten back into the swing with the Needlecraft Mystery series. A plot that you couldn't figure out immediately, more new characters, but retaining enough of the basic charm of the series to make it well worth reading/listening to.

OK for mind candy and you are a fiber person

What did you like best about Threadbare? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the light hearted story. It was a no brainer just to listen to it. It is very specific target audience: fiber artists. The story line was light on substance and a little moralistic but overall I enjoy her writing.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I will read the Tipping Point

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

nothing to recommend

Did Threadbare inspire you to do anything?

My grandmother worked hardanger so it was interesting to hear how difficult it is to do. I would like to explore it.
