Blurb (from book jacket): "When a homeless woman is found dead on the shore of Lake Minnetonka, she's wearing something that holds the key to her identity but also opens up a mystery. Embroidered on her blouse is her will, in which she bequeaths everything she owns to Emily Hame, her neice-a member of the Monday Bunch at Betsy Devonshire's Crewel World needlework shop!
"Emily's aunt is, in fact, the second homeless wooman to be found dead under mysterious circumstances. Is someone targeting the homeless in Excelsior, Minnesota? Or is her aunt's death related to what turns out to be a sizable inheritance, thought with some bizarre conditions?
"It's all too much for Emily, who seeks the help of her good friend and fellow needlecrafter Betsy to discover the common thread between the deaths-and to determine if a murderer may strike again..."
Opinion: A pretty good mystery with a predictable suspect. For a more complete review, please check out MyShelf.com
