The latest novel in the national bestselling Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery series
Yarn shop owner Kath Rutledge is at a historic farm in Blue Plum, Tennessee, volunteering for the high school program Hands on History. But when a long-buried murder is uncovered on the property, Kath needs help from Geneva the ghost to solve a crime that time forgot.... Kath and her needlework group TGIF (Thank Goodness It’s Fiber) are preparing to teach a workshop at the Holston Homeplace Living History Farm, but their lesson in crazy quilts is no match for the crazy antics of the assistant director, Phillip Bell. Hamming it up with equal parts history and histrionics, Phillip leads an archaeological dig of the farm’s original dump site—until one student stops the show by uncovering some human bones. When a full skeleton is later excavated, Kath can’t help but wonder if it’s somehow connected to Geneva, the ghost who haunts her shop, and whom she met at this very site. After Phillip is found dead, it’s up to Kath to thread the clues together before someone else becomes history.
What I thought of this book.
Okay, this is a case of I should have reviewed this right after I listened to it cause now I have some other books floating around in my head and I am struggling to remember what I wanted to write. 🙂
Kath, the owner of the yarn shop, volunteers for a hands on history event for high schoolers when one of the boys finds an arm bone. Then later the guy leading the group, is found dead by Kath.
Cole Dunbar, the detective in town wants her to stay out of his investigation but her and her posse do a little sleuthing on their own and usually get things write. Which I think just really ticks him off how good she is at solving the cases. I also think he kind of likes her but she is going out with his brother Joe.
There were a few good reasons for why someone might have killed Philip but when it came down to who the killers were I really had no clue. So I thought it was a really good mystery. I also like the lite paranormal feel it has with the ghost, oh which we get to find out what happened to her and Kath’s aunt hinting to the fact that she is a witch and that so was Kath. Her aunt has a special bunch of formulas for dying yarn that are a bit magical.
If you enjoy cozies then I think you will like this series.
Emily Durante does a great job with this series and I really like her voice.
