It started off well-enough but ended weakly, I thought. This has been an excellent series and I highly recommend it, but I thought this was not as strong as others in the series. I was attracted to this particular volume for two reasons; one, I like the character of Godwin and had the impression that he would have a stronger role in this one, but that was only partly true. Second, I was looking for a Christmas cozy to read during the holiday season. While this one occurs during December, there really isn't that much about the holidays in it. One unusual feature is that it takes place during a national needlework show - a sort of convention where wholesalers display their products and sell to retailers - and that was interesting and different. A negative, however, is that the convention takes place in Nashville. One doesn't read these books to read about Nashville, but to visit the small town of Excelsior, MN, and I missed that charming, cozy, small-town appeal.

I have to say that the author's characterizations are excellent. Moreover, I "read" this with the audio book using Amazon's "Whispersync" technology that lets you go back and forth between the audio book and the Kindle version, and the narrator was wonderful. The narrator, Melissa Hughes, makes me want to purchase more audio books in the series and discover what else she has narrated.

The solution to the crime, however, was a bit of a let-down. Despite an excellent cast of characters and the very real and sympathetic personalities that the author created for her suspects, the ending was not much of a surprise and solving the murder was a little dull. I suppose this is required reading for fans of this almost always interesting and charming series, but if you are selecting your annual Christmas cozy, I'd look elsewhere.

The 8th book in the series takes several of the main characters on a road trip to Nashville in December. Jill is attending a police convention, while Betsy and her assistant Godwin are attending a needlework show, shopping for new items for their store. Ice and snow trap Jill at the needlework convention hotel with Betsy and Godwin. When a shop owner, Belle, falls from an upper story of the atrium, it is initially chalked up as an accident. As police are bogged down with other issues, Jill offers to do some initial work on the case, aided by Betsy. They find out that there are several attendees at the show that might wish Belle to be dead. Using their limited resources, they must collect enough evidence to convince the local police that a murder did occur and find out who the guilty party is before the storm abates. It was interesting to see the group outside of their normal environs and in a form of closed scene type of mystery where they are essentially trapped with the murderer. The book contains a needlework pattern at the back.

I've read almost all the Betsy Devonshire series and enjoy the characters she's developed. Her key characters - Betsy, Godwin, and Jill the cop - appear in this tale set at the semi-annual needlework "convention" -- where dealers have hotel suites of displays to show their latest wares and owners of shops, like Betsy, can come and buy the newest stock. A sudden blizzard gets everyone snowed-in at the hotel in Nashville. An amusing subplot is how the hotel has to creatively feed the overflow snowbound crowd of hungry guests with dwindling food supplies. Betsy, with the help of Goddy and Jill, again becomes involved in solving the murder of one of the convention attendees. What I found most interesting was the "inside" information about the needlework business -- latest trends, how dealers select their stock, and all with a sprinkle of real-life needlework companies and entrepreneurs (such as Kreinik thread). Be prepared to do a lot of page-turning. The plot skips backward and forward in time, with each section denoted by date and time -- all revolving around the time of the murder. Some sections were minutes before, others minutes after, day before, hours after, etc. Red-herring clues abound. I kept flipping pages back and forth, to compare prior clues with new ones; the difficulty was compounded by the out-of-chronological-sequence sections. But that format was a clever technique of Ms. Ferris that added complexity and interest to the book.

Enjoying this series...lots of fun and a fast read. It also got me back into picking up my needlework.

This volume, however, has made my credit card scream. There are a lot of references to people and companies who make and sell needlework patterns. Every one that I looked up actually exists. And they do have some incredible patterns.

Now all I have to do is find a way to read and stitch at the same time.

Enjoy!!!!
