Summary

Betsy Devonshire has settled into her new home in Excelsior, Minnesota, as owner of the town’s needlecraft shop. So why is she suffering from terrifying nightmares? She hasn’t a clue - but thinks maybe it would help to get away for a while. With her friend Jill in tow, she heads north for a “stitch-in” at a remote, rustic lodge. But her nightmares only get worse - especially after she finds a dead woman no one else had seen. Then the body disappears - and she knows she won’t get any rest until she untangles the mysterious threads of the crime....

A Typical Cozy Mystery

An enjoyable addition to the needlecraft mystery series. A new setting, with our heroine sleuthing on vacation, provides a new raft of characters. Suspending belief is, as always, required, but this is a pleasant listen.
The narration is, however, something of an acquired taste. The delivery is quite stilted and wouldn't suit everyone. I found that, once I had become used to the style, it didn't spoil the book for me.

Another good!!!

These are definately fireside listens. They are far fetched in that the police are so laid back. Hopefully this is not the way in real life, but they make for easy and enjoyable listening.

I am going through the whole series in the proper order, and enjoying each of these books.

This author continues to write the best mysteries.

A great whodunit. And who doesn't love Godwin! Betsy Devonshire is one of my favorite sleuths.

Pretty good mystery

Monica Ferris has crafted a pretty good mystery, as well as likable characters. I find myself wondering what trouble Betsy can drag Jill into next. Susan Boyce, as always gives a beautiful performance in bringing the characters to life.

Guessing until the End

Having read this series when it first came out, I decided to listen to the audio version on my work commute. Apparently I had forgotten to read this one because the story was new and the mystery, like the sleepy Betsy, kept eluding my brain. I love the twists and turns. the voice actress was consistent with only one vocal slip on a very minor character. An excellent choice!

What's with the incorrect pronunciation?

In the past month I've listen to several of the needlework stories. I'm surprised the narrator, who is a professional never learned the correct pronunciation of so many Minnesota towns and legendary names. She mispronounces Wayzata, Brule, Medina, Ole, Edina....and more. She doesn't get better as the series goes on. I hope the story never takes place in Grand Rapids and she needs say the name of the Main Street "pokegama".

Love Monica Ferris! Narration A Bit Choppy. However...

I so enjoy Monica Ferris mysteries!
This narration was a bit challenging for me to listen to at first due to it being so choppy. However, I have listened to later book marathons by Susan Boyce and she is much improved!

Unique "medical" twist

Very different from the first ones! A great change and loved the medical aspect! Betsy gets really tough, too!

A sleeve wasn't unraveled

It wasn't one of my favorite Monica Ferris stories. I felt that there was too much needle work situations. The snotty conversation between different types of needlework was a bit "high school ish".

Monica has the perfect ingredients

Where does Unraveled Sleeve rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I rate this in my top 10 of "just to relax & enjoy". Although it is not what I would personally call a "gripping" book, again it is a VERY great story that is told in a very clean & calm atmosphere with an easy to listen to narration. I listened to it twice in the first 3 weeks of purchase, and will return to listen yet again without a doubt, as with the other titles in this series.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

This house is filled with movies & books - finding one that actually keeps us on the "edge" are very rare. I will say it was a very smooth written and not easily figured out by the end of each chapter.

Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I am very pleased with her work to date.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"Allergic to Falling Flakes" * due to the weather, the waterfall that is involved, what she was knitting at the time*

Any additional comments?

I am off to read the next in the series ! I need to soon begin searching for another series of books that will keep me going through the many nights of 3 am knitting as I try to fight the routines of chronic pain.
