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....

"This is the first of a new series that should be popular with cozy fans." (Booklist)
Tell us about yourself!
This is a decent start to a series, but the author's attempt to have unresolved story lines to pick up in later books left me with a a sense of it being unfinished. The conflicts include deaths/murders, thefts, the shop/inheritance, cats, and a ghost. Law enforcement is strange and small town busybodies pop up continuously. Finally, I find it a stretch that an 80 year old woman could run a shop, teach fiber art lessons plus design and weave tapestries in her off time at home.
The narration enhances this listen.
A really bad day (well, several of them) leads to adventure and a new life.
There were lts of believable surprises.
She does the various characters well. You can tell who's talking.
I laughed a few times and felt sad, but didn't cry.
You can go to the publisher's website and download the recipes and patterns that came with the book.
I had it figured out.
The narrator was average. No issues.
This is an afternoon "beach read." Nothing to glow about and nothing to complain about.
I couldn't even concentrate on the story or listen for more than 15 minutes. The narrator has to be one of the worst voices ever.
That I couldn't concentrate on the story because of the narrator's distracting voice, enunciation, and accent.
Her accent was flat and harsh on my ears, and her voice was awful.
The story was weak and silly at times. Maybe silly was what the author was trying for but not what I expected.
