Buttons and Bones (Needlecraft Mystery)

Buttons and Bones - Monica Ferris Surprisingly good. A strong 3 1/2 stars. The mystery is interesting, the research is not given in spurs of infodumps but is an integral and organic part of the story. This is a really good one in the series where Monica Ferris succeeded in mixing crafts, plot points and character history together and create something interesting and clever. Her secondary new characters she introduces are interesting, clever and not paper thin (I'm thinking about Peg for instance or Violet). Here's hoping this is a new start for this series because when the author finds a subject she can sink her teeth in she does a wonderful job and creates an interesting and clever cozy mystery like they all should be.
