    About "Betty Hechtman"

    1. Betty Hechtman

      I grew up on the south side of Chicago and in a very busy weekend, got married, graduated college and moved to Los Angeles.Although my degree is in Fine Arts, all I ever wanted to be was a writer and I ve been doing it in one form or another for as long as I can remember My shining moments in elementary and high school always involved stories or poetry I d written I wrote news stories and a weekly column in my college newspaper My first job out of college was working on the newsletter of a finance company I worked for a public relations firm and wrote press releases and biographies Later I wrote proposals for video projects and television shows that went through various stages of development.I tried writing screenplays and wrote three I sold one and another was a winner in a Writers Digest contest.I was lucky enough to be a stay at home mom and did all kinds of volunteering at my son s schools including editing and writing several newsletters.I wrote essays and small pieces that ran in the Los Angeles Times, the Daily News and Woman s Day among others My short romantic and mystery fiction appeared in Woman s World, and Futures magazine.From time I was a thirteen year old babysitter cooking for the kids I babysat, I dreamed of writing a book about babysitting It took a little longer than I d expected, but BLUE SCHWARTZ AND NEFERTITI S NECKLACE was published in 2006.My affair with crochet began in Las Vegas I had always had a fascination with crochet, particularly granny squares, but thought there was some magic involved with making them that was beyond me And then everything changed that day in Vegas when I saw the kids kit in FAO Schwartz If the instructions were easy enough for kids, I thought they might work for me.My first granny square was missing a corner, but when I tried again, all four corners were there I was in awe of my own accomplishment I had found the magic I went granny square crazy until pretty soon I didn t need directions any Then I learned there were squares than just basic grannies and I made squares with sunflowers in the middle and other patterns I moved beyond squares and made flowers, hearts, bookmarks and .I was in love with crochet and began to make scarves, purses, afghans, and shawls I started carrying my hooks everywhere A plane trip became a pile of granny square wash cloths, or part of a shawl A vacation in Hawaii turned into a tote bag.And now I get to write about it Sourced from authors websiteSeries A Crochet Mystery Yarn Retreat

    1. Purchase for Save Our Cozies, I have read this author s Crochet and thought it was one I haven t read My surprised to find it is the latest book out in a different series I have always enjoyed books by this author and this one did not disappoint.The monarch butterflies return every fall to Cadbury, California to winter over there The town has a major festival every year to honor the butterflies Casey Feldstein is holding a Yarn Retreat to include the town s activities in her plans During a displ [...]


    2. I ve read a crocheting murder mystery by this author and liked it I don t crochet by the way This series follows instead a knitting and yarn class which enjoys a retreat , in other words a friendly workshop weekend without WiFi The town is also hosting a festival because the black and orange Monarch butterflies come to the area each year This aspect is interesting and enjoyable but I found it just background, as no visiting biologist or pesticide manufacturer gets involved in the murder During t [...]

    4. Bought this thinking it was part of the author s other series It was not great Too much was going on at once, and how many thirty somethings live in such fear of their parents



    5. Author Betty Hechtman has knitted up another delightful tale in this addition to the Yarn Retreat Mysteries GONE WITH THE WOOL isn t just another Yarn Retreat Mystery it s the best in the series Ms Hechtman really made use of her thinking cap wonder if it was knitted when she penned this one I loved the October setting for the town of Cadbury by the Sea, and the monarch butterfly imagery I felt like I was at the center of it all The search for who stabbed the former butterfly queen, and all the [...]


    6. 3 stelle e mezzaQuesta serie mi piace e stavolta non avevo proprio capito chi fosse il colpevole Forse sono stata un po distratta dalla vita personale della protagonista Confesso che non amo molto il personaggio del suo ex e meno male che un ex Mi sembra molto immaturo, vista l et e la professione.


    7. Light hearted and satisfying I had a moment of feeling like it was an extended episode of The Love Boat And I mean that in the best way.


    8. It s Butterfly Week in Cadbury by the Sea The monarchs come to visit once a year and the town celebrates in a big way with many events and the crowning of a Butterfly Queen This time Casey puts on a week long retreat and the retreaters get to take part in the town events There was no lack of suspects in this book s murder, the victim was quite unpleasant and many had motives I hope in the next book that Casey puts in a little face time with her retreaters, she seems too content to let her early [...]


    9. In the fourth Yarn Retreat mystery, Casey Feldstein hosts a loom knitting retreat to coincide with the town s annual Butterfly Week The town is abuzz with the festivities When a former Butterfly Queen is found murdered, Casey cannot help becoming involved in solving the crime.The book was a fun read I really enjoyed the subplot of Sammy s parents visiting Cadbury However, I missed the regular yarn retreaters I don t feel as though the retreat was woven into the storyline well It seemed of an af [...]


    10. In Cadbury by the Sea on the Monterey peninsula a knitting retreat is held This year it is being held at the same time as the Monarch butterfly festival so there is something else for the attendees to do as rest from knitting When the Monarch queen selection chairman is murdered the main protagonist feels the need to investigate The premise of the mystery is well thought out and the characters are likeable But, if feel Cadbury by the sea is trite and not really very concealing of Carmel Just pla [...]


    11. The yarn retreat business seems to be established even though there have been problems with each one, Casey has come through with experience and a new awareness This retreat is based around the monarch butterflies who flock to the California s Monterey Peninsula for the Winter The whole town celebrates a weeklong festival including appointing a butterfly queen.When a former queen is found stabbed, Casey is on the case again.Recommend.


    12. Betty Hectman s knitting mysteries are so much fun to read Casey Feldstein runs knitting retreats in Cadbury by the Sea, a great play on words for Carmel by the Sea This book focus on the monarch butterflies return to the Monterey Peninsula, and of course another murder for Casey to solve Brings back fond memories of my many visits to Carmel and Monterey.


    13. I really enjoyed this book The story revolves not only around the yarn retreat but also the monarch butterflies that travel through town every year As readers we get to learn about using looms and many interesting things about butterflies Way to go Ms Hechtman, you gave readers a wonderful mystery filled with many unique twists all bundled into a fast paced story full of fu and surprises.





    14. OK, but I knocked it down a star due to Casey s total lack of spine in dealing with Dr Sammy and his parents Why would anyone put up with that nonsense


    15. Weakest of the series so far Needs of the retreat, less of the wimpy relationship toward Sammy The mystery was good with the proper amount of red herrings though.

    17. Fellow fans of this series will like knowing that a secret from the previous book is dealt with here in Gone With the Wool, and the reaction Casey gets isn t exactly what she expected How s the mystery First rate, because Hechtman s red herrings led me in the opposite direction from the villain a bit like Julius the cat s stink fish would make me head away from the kitchen pronto.If there s any weakness in this book for me, it s the fact that Casey spent 97% of her time sleuthing and dodging irr [...]

    19. GONE WITH THE WOOL, by Betty Hechtman, is the fourth book in her Yarn Retreat Mystery series but the first one I ve had the pleasure of reading GONE WITH THE WOOL has an underlying subplot involving the town s founding family that has me intrigued and wanting to read from the beginning of the series The fourth book is still easily read as a standalone and I had no problems getting to know the characters and how they related The mystery flowed with plenty of suspects that kept me guessing wrongly [...]
