Always up for trying something new, Kath and her friends from the fiber and needlework group TGIF-Thank Goodness It's Fiber-are visiting Cloud Hollow Farm for the day to learn the fine art of dyeing. With spring in the air, the friends head out to greet the sheep. But the sheep are more interested in something else-two bodies spread under a tall tree. And one of those bodies is someone they know. Kath's friends nudge her to investigate, and no one is more adamant than Geneva, the ghost who loves to play assistant sleuth.

I am thorough;y enjoying this quirky series. I love the characters, and I am completely OK with the fact that one of them is a ghost who is only seen by the protagonist. This is a fun read. ( )

So, I liked this book. It was a good, entertaining read. But I didn't love it. Or really like it. I really liked the first one.

The characters are great - likeable, unique, sassy in some cases, sweet in others. A wide range of ages in the posse keeps things interesting - I want these people to be my friends. If the author has designs on making Cole the romantic interest in the future, I hope she soon shows another side to him, cuz he's an ass and I was only sorry Kath didn't punch him in the nose again in this book. Joe's an enigma - I wanna know more about him. I wish the ghost was less of a mess - she's really unlikeable and not a sympathetic character because she's just, well, a mess (and incredibly self-centered). She'd be a much more interesting character if the author gave her some depth; some dimensionality. Some Xanax.

The setting is awesome - small town set in the Tennessee hills, and I'd like to move into the Weaver's Cat.

The plot was solid, well done, and not one of the clichéd cozy-mystery plots that authors can buy 5 for a dollar. I truly didn't see the villain or have a hint of the villain until the giveaway clue.

I'm not really sure why this wasn't a four star read for me except that it felt choppy; like it didn't flow as well as it should or as well as the first one. That can be a subjective thing - maybe it would be smoother if I read it again at some point - so I'd recommend this one to anyone who has read the first one. And I'll be eagerly awaiting the third book... ( )

Molly MacRae's Haunted Yarn Shop cozy series is one that I've fast learned to enjoy for its cast of characters, its humor, and its primary setting of a yarn shop in which I can browse to my heart's content without obliterating my budget.

Yes, the mystery part is solid, but oh how MacRae's characters shine! She's assembled a cast that should fuel the series for quite a while. In the first book I tended to think Geneva the ghost was a pain in the neck that dragged the book down a bit, but although she's still a pill in Dyeing Wishes, she starts taking an interest in something other than herself and I began to soften towards her. Geneva drives Kath batty with her constant references to television programs, so Kath decides to wean her away from the boob tube-- and her solution will make any reader laugh and want to give Kath a high five.

Another thing I enjoy so much in these books is the wordplay-- for example, when Deputy Cole Dunbar refers to the Friday Fast and Furious knitting group as "the frantic and flabbergasted." MacRae slips these into the story stealthily, so beware: drink at your own peril.

If I have any little quibble at all with this book, I'd like to have seen more fiber in the storyline-- and I'm talking fabric, not food. If you're in the mood for interesting characters and a mystery laced with humor, I recommend heading down to Tennessee to visit with Kath Rutledge at her shop, the Weaver's Cat. ( )

Dyeing Wishes is the second book in the A Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery series.

Kath and a couple members of TGIF group from the yarn store are at Debbie's farm to learn about dyeing wool, first they want to visit the sheep and their lambs. But, first, they find two dead bodies, in what appears to be a murder suicide. Most everyone Kath talks with is doubtful of the Deputy "Clod" Dunbar feeling that it was a murder/suicide. One of the deceased, Will, had been accused of killing someone at the local paper plant and had fled to woods and hadn't been seen since. The other victim was his girlfriend and the daughter one of the TGIF members.

Kath and her posse from TGIF start there own investigation to what happened out at the field. Of course Geneva, Kath friendly ghost is there to help. At times Kath may wonder if Geneva is really helping. Geneva is a real character and it is always fun to have her "show" up. Geneva still loves to watch TV, but has now become a reader...if Kath is around to change books for her.

Kath has learned a little her grandmothers secret dyes and might even be having a romantic interest starting.

Awaiting the next book to see what will happen in Blue Plum next.
