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....

    "Took me two tries"

    I started this book months ago and couldn't get into it. I tried again yesterday and couldn't stop listening. It's a cozy mystery, not too gory or creepy. The story moved along at a good pace, and the narrator is ok. I knew who the thief was right away, but didn't catch on to the murderer til later in the book. All in all I enjoyed the story.

    "Hard to stay interested."

    I didn't dislike the book but I didn't like it either. It was just hard to stay interested in the story.

    All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!

    "So good, can't wait to listen to the next one!"

    Made me want to curl up with my knitting and my cat and a nice pot of tea. :) I think I'll have to get the next one for my Girlfriends Cozy Club discussion.

    "Good Cozy Mystery"
    Any additional comments?

    The Audible version of Last Wool and Testament hooked me on this series of mysteries by Molly MacRae. I liked the sweetness of the characters and simplicity of small town life. While not a character, the departed Grandmother Ivy adds flavor to the plot, as does a quirky sidekick ghost. What’s not to like about this cozy mystery? It was just what I needed as the world appears to be falling apart. Emily Durante provided a great narration. Last Wool and Testament was a good listen and would be an equally good read.

    Story
    "Has everything: mystery, witch, ghost, and fiber"
    If you could sum up Last Wool and Testament in three words, what would they be?

    A really bad day (well, several of them) leads to adventure and a new life.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There were lts of believable surprises.


    What about Emily Durante’s performance did you like?

    She does the various characters well. You can tell who's talking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a few times and felt sad, but didn't cry.


    Any additional comments?

    You can go to the publisher's website and download the recipes and patterns that came with the book.

    Story
    "I really wanted to like this one"
    Would you try another book from Molly MacRae and/or Emily Durante?

    Oh no


    What was most disappointing about Molly MacRae’s story?

    This was billed as a "haunted" yarn shop - I didn't get that at all. This felt like it was written as a very weak mystery and then they tossed in the paranormal/crafting elements as a complete afterthought. The main character was wishy washy and the story was completely forgettable.


    Any additional comments?

    Pass on this one.

    Story
    "It's "Okay""
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not really.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I had it figured out.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was average. No issues.


    Could you see Last Wool and Testament being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This is an afternoon "beach read." Nothing to glow about and nothing to complain about.

    Story
    "The worst narrator ever"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Molly MacRae’s story?

    That I couldn't concentrate on the story because of the narrator's distracting voice, enunciation, and accent.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her accent was flat and harsh on my ears, and her voice was awful.
