Looking for murder mysteries in (I think) Minnesota

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.


Also, for mysteries, a great resource is a website called Stop, You're Killing Me,  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.
