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)
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.
All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!
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.
I enjoy gardening, crochet, cross stitch and listening to audiobooks in the shade.
Finally a good mystery with k
nitting. no romance,j just a good story easy to crochet and knit while listening.
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.
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 enjoy reading -romance, mystery & paranormals. Some of my favorite audios are: Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Cat & Bones & JD Robb.
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.
Pass on this one.
Been listening when listening to books was unheard of - and on tape. I've evolved along with Audible and love everything about Audible!!
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.
