Kath and her needlework group TGIF (Thank Goodness It's Fiber) are preparing to teach a workshop at the Holston Homeplace Living History Farm, but their lesson in crazy quilts is no match for the crazy antics of the assistant director, Phillip Bell. Hamming it up with equal parts history and histrionics, Phillip leads an archaeological dig of the farm's original dump site - until one student stops the show by uncovering some human bones. When a full skeleton is later excavated, Kath can't help but wonder if it's somehow connected to Geneva, the ghost who haunts her shop, and whom she met at this very site. After Phillip is found dead, it's up to Kath to thread the clues together before someone else becomes history.

A crazy ghost, a snoop-troupe and really well done performance. The books get better and better and even though the endings are a little magical, they are interesting and somewhat unexpected. I really do love this and knit like a mad-woman while listening.
I felt it was just plain corny, something a retired old school teacher would write. It was interesting enough, but the plot needed to be more evolved.
I didn't like the inflection of her character tones. They really annoyed me.
Chosen a different way to narrate the characters. It had a very "Mayberry RFD" feel to it instead of a true mystery.
Humor. It was just so corny, I had to laugh.
I'm not sorry I listened to this book, as it was entertaining, but I likely won't be lstening to any others in this series.
While I enjoy the characters, the connection with the craft information, and the local history, this heroine is irritatingly weak at weird moments. For some reason, just when I think she is going to either solve the mystery or assert herself in a good way, she decides to lean on someone else. Still, there are flashes of great characterizations and periodic bits of fun which is what keeps me coming back for more.
Yes, Great story line and the narrator did a fantastic job. Love the ghost!
