Last Wool and Testament – Molly MacRae


4/5 Haunted Yarn Shops

On The Back:

Kath Rutledge is about to learn the true meaning of TGIF—Thank Goodness It’s Fiber.…

That’s the name of the spunky group of fiber and needlework artists founded by Ivy McClellan, Kath’s beloved grandmother. Though Ivy has recently passed on, the members still meet regularly at her fiber and fabric shop, The Weaver’s Cat, which Kath has now inherited. But that’s only the first in a series of surprises when Kath returns to the small town of Blue Plum, Tennessee, to settle her grandmother’s affairs.

There’s been a murder, and it turns out her grandmother was the prime suspect. Before she can begin to clear Ivy’s name, Kath encounters a looming presence in the form of a gloomy ghost. It turns out the specter has just as much interest in solving the murder as Kath. So, with a little help from the members of TGIF—and a stubborn spirit from beyond—she sets out to unravel the clues and hook the real killer.…

My Thoughts:

Last Wool and Testament was an exciting glimpse into Blue Plum, Tennessee.

The characters were great, I really liked Kath, hated Clod, which is what the author wanted you to do, and was in-between about Joe.

The mystery was also wonderful, I had a slight inkling of who the killer was, but I didn’t know for sure, but the reason for the murder blew me away, it was a surprise, but fit in perfectly with what the author was trying to convey. The author also left a few loose ends that I’ll enjoy reading about in the next installment.

However, the beginning was a bit slow for my taste, it took like 75 pages before I really got into this book, and the ghost played a relatively minor role for most of the book. When I had picked this up I had expected the ghost to be right there with the MC for most of the story, but that wasn’t the case.

Through those minor faults, however, this book was a good, riveting read that I devoured!
