In the latest from the bestselling author of Plagued by Quilt, Kath Rutledge yarn bombs Blue Plum, Tennessee—and gets tangled up in the mystery of a bumped-off bagpiper.
It’s time for Handmade Blue Plum, an annual arts and crafts fair, and Kath and her knitting group TGIF (Thank Goodness It’s Fiber) plan to kick off the festivities with a yarn bombing. But they’re not the only ones needling Blue Plum. Bagpiper and former resident Hugh McPhee had just returned after a long absence, yet his reception is anything but cozy. The morning after his arrival, he’s found dead in full piper’s regalia.
Although shaken, Kath and her knitting group go forward with their yarn installation—only to hit a deadly snag. Now, with the help of Geneva, the ghost who haunts her shop, Kath and TGIF need to unravel the mystery before someone else gets kilt!
What I thought of this book.
Kath and her posse are getting ready to yarn bomb Blue Plum when a bag piper who just came back into town is killed. He use to be from Blue Plum and not a lot of people seem to like him. One of those people being the policeman Cole Dunbar.
Kath and her posse try to figure out why Hugh was back in town and whom might have had such a grudge against him that they would kill him as soon as he showed up. They are also still preparing for their yarn bomb.
Something happens and Cole Dunbar is suspended for something that seems like a farce but he is now off the case, so for the first time he can’t harp Kath about interfering in one of his investigations. But why was he suspended?
During the yarn bombing it is interrupted when Kath find a dead body. Now they have two dead bodies and no idea who might have done it. Are they tied in together? Could it be a member of TGIF?
There are plenty of suspects as Kath and her posse from the TGIF (Thank Goodness it’s Fiber) to sift through and see if they can find a killer.
The mysteries in this series are always really good. I really enjoy them and usually can’t figure it out until close to the reveal if I do figure it out.
I really like Kath and the TGIF posse as they are a lot of fun. The Spivie twins are my favorite characters as they are a hoot. I also love Kath’s resident ghost Genevieve as she is sort of a part of the Posse though nobody really knows it and some times she makes Kath look a bit crazy when she forgets and answers the ghost…lol.
So now I am all caught up on this series and that is kind of sad as I like it so I can’t wait for another one to come out. If you enjoy cozies with a hint of paranormal then you will enjoy this series.
