A murder of a young couple in a sheep field leaves a group of fabric and fiber loving friends in a tizzy as they race to solve who committed the awful crime with the aide of Kath and her unlikely companion, Geneva…a ghost!
Oh, Molly MacRae, you have written a fantastic story that I absolutely adore. Sheep, ghosts, murder and friendship! This story is fun, lighthearted and I couldn’t help but to laugh at Kath and Geneva’s back and fourth conversations. Hysterical! I will never look at people talking on the phone the same again. I also loved how Molly highlighted the friendships of the TGIF (Thank Goodness it’s Fiber) group through the solving of the mystery. There were lots of players but it all worked together for a really great story.
This is series but having not read the first one, I followed along just fine without feeling lost. I am interested in reading the first one now, however and continuing the series. Even if you don’t like knitting, fibers or sheep, this book is still fantastic. I personally don’t knit, crochet or anything. I do own the most splendid knit wool Aran hooded sweater from Ireland and it is heavenly. I am also the biggest fan of sheep there is without actually owning one. If I see one, I totally fan girl. Sheep!
Oh ya…back to the story. It’s just the setting and not the main crux that deal with the yarn and wool. I loved the mystery from beginning to end. The paranormal twist was my favorite part however. I would call this one a paracozy for sure. From the out of town mysterious people to the in town busy-body know- it-alls, this book covered it all in a well paced and entertaining manner. I can’t wait to learn more about Kath and Geneva’s next adventure.
If you want to know, I listened to this on via CDs via audiobooks. I really enjoyed the reader Emily Durante. She is always enjoyable to listen to and helped bring this book to life.
