I had a much needed day off yesterday, and decided to spend my uninterrupted free time doing a bit of spinning practise. A while ago, I acquired some free unidentified wool, and I though, rather than using my nice stuff for beginner spinning, I'd use this, then I could have a play with dying as well.
by Monica Ferris, which is the first in a series of needlecraft mysteries. This was a great example of "cosy crime," a very light read and enjoyable to pick up in a few spare minutes and then put back down. I really enjoyed it, but there was not much plot development. I was surprised when I looked back at how little actually happened in the book, considering that it doesn't seem to move slowly when you are reading it. The characters are enjoyable, they're well portrayed and you can see exactly the type of people they are. I also like the needlepoint references, the author clearly did some research to write this book. Overall, I would recommend it for a bit of light relief. It won't change your world, but if you like mysteries or fibre crafts (which I assume most people reading this blog do,) you'll probably enjoy it.
