Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Murder is in the air everywhere--even at a needlework show. Betsy Devonshire, owner of the shop Crewel World, finds herself snowed in at the convention hotel in Nashville along with her policewoman friend, Jill, and employee, Godwin. When another shop owner, Belle Hammermill, falls over the railing, plummeting down nine stories into the middle of the atrium, even the most avid sewers look up from their tatting. Everyone, of course, assumes the fall to be an accident. However, as Betsy, Jill, and Godwin start talking to the show's attendees, they begin to learn that a selfish and devious Belle had plenty of enemies--and they are all in the hotel. Ferris' characterizations are top-notch, and the action moves along at a crisp pace. The ending, unfortunately, is something of a letdown, with hardly a twist, much less a turn. Still, with so many crafters out there, this has a built-in audience of those who like to mix their needlepoint with question marks. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2004 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Monica Ferris makes her hardcover debut with Crewel Yule, the eighth in her cozy series to feature Betsy Devonshire, owner of Crewel World, "a sweet little needlework store in Minnesota." At the annual needlework convention in Nashville, a Milwaukee, Wis., needlework shop owner plunges to her death into the hotel atrium-is it an accident or murder? Despite multiple flashbacks in the book's first third, the story moves along at a sprightly pace, and readers will enjoy the customary detail about needlework that makes this series increasingly popular.
