Can't recall any titles or the author. But the heroine owns a yarn shop, has a female cop friend named Jill, and solves murder mysteries. The author is female. Any ideas?

There's a discussion group here specifically for asking about lost books like that, so that is a good place to post questions like this. http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/Lost-Books/
Also, for mysteries, a great resource is a website called Stop, You're Killing Me, http://www.stopyourekillingme.com/. They have lists of fictional detectives searchable by location and other factors. Searching their location index for Minnesota turns up an entry for Betsy Devonshire: needlework shop owner in Excelsior, Minnesota. Author name is Monica Ferris. All of her book titles are needlework-related puns. My favorite is Crewel World.
