Buttons and Bones: 07/31/16
Buttons and Bones by Monica Ferris is the 14th book in the Needlecraft series. Lars and Jill have bought a cabin in the woods with Betsy's help. On their first night there with the kids they discover a long buried secret in a trapdoor hidden under two layers of flooring.
Here we have a cold case dating back to WWII. It's stale by seven decades. Finding anyone who remembers anything about the cabin and its history will be hard.
After the problematic set up of Blackwork it was refreshing to get back to a mystery that wasn't built on characters suddenly being superstitious. Here instead is a classic mystery where questions need answers, clues need discovery, and the entire puzzle needs to be put together.
