Publisher's Summary

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....

    "Cozy listen"

    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.

    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.

    "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.

    The story was weak and silly at times. Maybe silly was what the author was trying for but not what I expected.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    dont know


    How could the performance have been better?

    good question


    What character would you cut from Last Wool and Testament?

    Joe
