Kath Rutledge is settling in as the owner of the Weaver’s Cat, a fiber and fabric shop in Blue Plum, Tennessee. But nothing, not even the ghost haunting her shop, prepares her for the mystery that will leave the whole town spinning....
It’s time for Blue Plum’s annual historical festival, and everyone—including Kath and her spunky fiber and needlework group, TGIF—is getting in on the action. Expert spinners are being gathered, and a businessman has approached Kath about using the second-floor windows of her store for part of a reenactment. But the reenactment ends in real-life bloodshed when local baker Reva Louise Snapp is shot—with a bullet from a modern-day gun.
Kath has her theories about who wanted to end Reva Louise’s life. But there’s also talk of a sniper stalking Blue Plum, and Kath’s shop is suspected to be the murderer’s hideout. Now Kath, her TGIF pals, and the gloomy ghost, Geneva, must unravel the mystery quickly, or someone else might be left hanging by a thread....
Book three in the Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries, the gals in this series crack me up. 🙂
What I thought of this book.
When a business man ask Kath if he could use her second story window in part of a reenactment she wasn’t sure about it but went ahead. Then finds herself in the middle of another murder when Reva Louis is killed by someone who was using her second floor window. Was it an accident or did someone want to kill Reva Louis.
Kath and her posse are on the case as they try and figure out who might have wanted to kill Reva Louis, and where did Angie run off too. We find out that Reba Louis was not the best of people and so she could have done something that got her killed. Cole Dunbar who is investigating things keeps telling Kath and her friends to stay out of things but they never seem to listen as they just can’t help themselves.
The mystery in this story was good, I might not be good at solving crimes or it just didn’t dawn on me until it was revealed but I didn’t guess who it was…lol.
I love the characters and it’s the side characters that really make these stories a lot of fun. Kath’s posse is a group of older ladies, a ghost (I would like to know more about Geneva) and a couple of guys. Then you add in the Deputy who is always fighting with Kath it’s all pretty funny. Kath doesn’t have a love interest though she has gone out with Joe a couple of times and Cole has asked her out even though they argue all the time. So it’s a bit interesting cause those guys are brothers. I have to admit though if I had to choose a brother I would go with Joe.
Overall, I enjoyed it and if you like cozies then you should try this series. 🙂If you like cozy mysteries you will enjoy this series! Review of Spinning in Her Grave by Molly MacRae. Click To Tweet
