The Monday Bunch and other local knitters are participating in a fundraising auction to save a community center, creating a growing pile of stuffed animals and toys right in front of the auctioneers as they bid. Among those contributing the most knitted goods is temperamental businesswoman Marsha Hanover, who keels over halfway through the event.
After she is pronounced DOA at the hospital, an autopsy reveals that Marsha had been poisoned. One of the prime suspects is her ruthless business rival Joe Mickels, who lost a bitterly contested property bid to Marsha. When Mickels pleads his innocence, it is up to needlework shop owner Betsy Devonshire to stitch together the clues of this murder mystery.

Although I enjoyed the story I must admit to being very cross regarding the research, or lack of it, by Monica Ferris regarding England and Good Friday/Holy Saturday/Easter Monday, and the comment that England is not a Christian country. Really Ms Ferris, get your facts right next time, and do not make comments that you cannot substantiate.
"Best So Far"
This is one of the best in the series. Betsy had become somewhat predictable and dry in the past couple of books. However, in this book, I felt like Betsy had new life. The plot and the characters were interesting and engaging like in previous books. But in this book, the writing was better. It drew me into the story more. The characters seemed even more fleshed out and the actions were more believable. I really enjoyed this story and can't wait for the next one.
"Presentation kept repeating itself"
Great plot, surprise ending. Only complaint is that there were times the last few pages in a chapter would repeat. Mainly towards the end on the book. This is a technical problem.
