From the back:
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.
Betsy still has the knack for solving a mystery even though bed-ridden. Goddy takes over as her eyes and ears and learns a lot in the process. The time line is the same as the criminal was in the hospital the same time as Betsy.
The crow does put a little dent in the ointment though.
