Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Among the many souvenirs Betsy’s friend Doris Valentine brings home from a Thailand vacation is a stone Buddha to be delivered to a St. Paul antiques dealer. When Doris discards the dirty cloth the Buddha was wrapped in, Betsy rescues the cloth, which turns out to be valuable silk more than 2,000 years old…After someone ransacks Doris’s apartment and murders the antiques dealer, Sgt. Mike Malloy of the Excelsior police and civilian detective Betsy find themselves involved in a case more complicated than any needlework pattern she’s ever attempted.” Publishers Weekly
“Betsy Devonshire and the other Monday Bunch regulars eagerly welcome back Doris Valentine from a trip to Thailand…Doris also shows them a small stone Buddha that she has agreed to deliver to an antiques store in St. Paul. Then the store owner is murdered, [and] the statue stolen…Excelsior police officer Mike Malloy and Betsy are soon trying to unravel the clues…This mixture of believable action, cozy scenes, and commentary on the problem of priceless artifact theft makes this one of the strongest entries in the series.” Booklist
“[A] mixture of believable action, cozy scenes, and commentary.” Booklist
“A wonderful cerebral whodunit.” Midwest Book Review
“Needlecrafters and fans of Maggie Sefton’s knitting mysteries will snap this up.” Library Journal
