In Knitting Bones, Monica Ferris changes the rules of her Betsy Devonshire's mysteries. Normally, Betsy gets involved in a mystery and leaves the shop in the capable hands of her assistant, Goddy, while she solves the case. This time, Betsy is in a cast and laid up in her apartment when the check raised by the Embroiderers Guild is stolen by Allie Germaine's husband. Allie begs Betsy to help because she knows her husband is innocent and she wants him found. Betsy can't investigate so Goddy has to go into the field, while Betsy, a bit high on pain meds, has to stay in her apartment, collecting the bits and pieces of the puzzle brought to her by others. Will she still be able to solve the crime? From official release/information:
Book Description: The stitchers of the Embroiderers Guild are thrilled to have raised over $20,000 for charity-but they're less pleased when the representative who accepts the check disappears with it. After breaking her leg in a fall from a horse, Betsy's confined to her apartment and loopy on pain killers-she can't possibly investigate. But Godwin, her store manager, insists that he can do the legwork. Little do they know that a man across town has a similar injury-and he too is wondering what happened to that check. Betsy and Godwin have got to figure it out first, or it'll be a bad break for everyone.
