    2. So, I liked this book It was a good, entertaining read But I didn t love it Or really like it I really liked the first one.The characters are great likeable, unique, sassy in some cases, sweet in others A wide range of ages in the posse keeps things interesting I want these people to be my friends If the author has designs on making Cole the romantic interest in the future, I hope she soon shows another side to him, cuz he s an ass and I was only sorry Kath didn t punch him in the nose again in [...]

    3. These are really good mysteries I really had no idea who dunnit, for sure, until the resolution Kath and her TGIF crew are a treat And the interplays between Kath and Geneva are always a hoot.

    4. I have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to triangles, which is no surprise to anyone reading my reviews They aren t clever or interesting and the suggestion of one is enough for me to say no thanks to a burgeoning cozy series I was wary with the first book in the series, but I loved just about every character The one character I didn t like is the same I have no patience for in this entry I don t find cleverly named abrasive police officer s that makes free with misogynistic colloquialisms [...]

    5. A murder of a young couple in a sheep field leaves a group of fabric and fiber loving friends in a tizzy as they race to solve who committed the awful crime with the aide of Kath and her unlikely companion, Genevaa ghost The story is fun, lighthearted and I couldn t help but to laugh at Kath and Geneva s back and fourth conversations Hysterical I also loved how Molly highlighted the friendships of the TGIF thank goodness it s fiber group through the solving of the mystery There were lots of play [...]

    7. Another really good light weight mystery in the Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery series Dyeing Wishes built on the strengths of the first installment, developed a few weaker elements but dropped the ball on a couple of minor points.The mystery was solid and really well hidden Whereas in the last book, I had my suspicions, in this one I honestly had no idea who the killer was until the big reveal Kath and Geneva are still a great double act, but now that they re settled into Blue Plum and The Weaver s C [...]

    8. I deemed Molly MacRae a favourite upon her first book We need paranormal adult literature and heroines over 30 Etherealness shouldn t be jovial but in the surrounding story, I laughed uproariously at detailed observation of everyday things and intelligent turns of phrase Mine was the delight that made my fianc wonder from the living room, what could be so funny reading in bed I chortled every time I revisited those paragraphs and quoted them to people including in my review I was stunned when it [...]

    12. I love Molly MacRae s Haunted Yarn Shop mysteries When my reading has hit a too serious impasse, I love to turn to books in which I must suspend my disbelief, and this series is great for that When Kath Rutledge s grandmother died and left her the fiber and fabric shop, Kath had no idea that she possessed any unusual powers But when her grandmother s final letter gave her some clues, and when she started having strange emotions when touching certain fabric, and when Geneva, the ghost, showed up, [...]

    13. Enjoyable cozy mystery I loved the small town feel, and actually howordinary the main character seems She s a woman who is finding that, although her life took a turn for something different, those changes aren t necessarily bad, and she s finding that she likes her new home and friends The mystery solving is a little cheesy, as is the dialog among the women, but it s written in an intentional way, which is reminiscent of sitcoms that made me smile.

    14. Good, solid 2nd outing I liked the storyline and I was guessing who the murderer was to the end I love dialogue in this book, and the fact all of the characters are intelligent and talk like normal people would Even the ghost My only complaint, is that I think it s time for Kath to stop calling Coleridge Clod She is 39 y o, intelligent, and a professional The name calling of another character is a little childish Other than that, this is a really good book.

    16. 4 Star review for Dyeing Wishes This is the second book in the A Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery The story continues on from where it left off in the first book Kath Rutledge grandmother Ivy, left her her little knitting shop, and all of Ivy s friends have become Kath s new friends Kath and her TGIF Thank Goodness It s Fiber knitters club go and visit their friend Debbie s farm, where she has just had some baby lambs born, but they are also there to learn how to dye the wool While they are out looking [...]

    17. While I personally don t care much about wool and dyes, this book is chockful of quirky characters, including Geneva the ghost who is overly melodramatic While visiting Debbie s farm, a man and woman are found, well first by a herd of sheep, but then by Debbie and Kath Was it murder suicide, a double murder About halfway through, figuring that answer out might come to you however it s figuring out what happened to missing Eric Lyle that simply bring up questions than answers.While Joe Dunbar se [...]

    18. Rambling, random and not funny at all The mystery could have been good but drowns in the bumbling about by Kath and her friends The story goes soooo slowly until suddenly in one paragraph the mystery is solved The characters are annoying across the board, Kath especially so with her tee hee I m so ditsy and adorable attitude And the forced animosity between Kath and Cole is inexplicable and not at all entertaining.

    19. This is the first book in a very cute new to me mystery series, where the fiber arts play a key role Bonus is that they take place in northeastern Tennessee at the base of the Appalachians, which is where I grew up and my family still lives The small town vibe and relationships ring true, and the mystery storyline is engaging without being either overblown or overly fluffy I like these a lot than the latter end of the Maggie Sefton knitting mysteries for sure.

    20. More fun and antics for gangI really like this series because there are just enough differences in the characters for them to be interesting and real You forget that you are reading a book because of the author s clarity The stories main, sub, sub, and sub are all entertaining.

    21. The book was unobjectionable I was not, however, very engaged in the story or characters The cast was very large and that can be a negative for me Maybe if I had started with the first book, I wouldn t feel that way.

    23. The second book was not quite as fun revealing as the first but I like the characters and find the series to be an enjoyable light read 3.5 stars.

    24. Took me two tries to get through this for one reason only there are some very annoying ongoing characters in this series I like the rest of the characters, the setting and the plots but these characters are just aggravating,

    27. Dyeing Wishes is the 2nd book in the Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries series I enjoyed the first book Last Wool and Testament so was eager to continue with the series While I like the first book a lot, I think I liked the second book even It was due to getting to know the wonderful cast of characters better.Since others have written about the start of the mystery,I am going to write what I like about this series It is the strong cast of characters First of all, there is Geneva a billowing and some t [...]

    28. I so enjoyed the first book in the Haunted Yarn Shop Series that I could not wait to read this one It certainly did not let me down, I enjoyed Dyeing Wishes just as much as I enjoyed Last Wool and Testament Molly MacRae has created a town full of characters that charming, witty, intriguing and up for solving a good mystery.This mystery hits a little too close to home for the TGIF group though I don t want to give too much away so I am just going to say that two members of the group are directly [...]

    30. Molly MacRae s Haunted Yarn Shop cozy series is one that I ve fast learned to enjoy for its cast of characters, its humor, and its primary setting of a yarn shop in which I can browse to my heart s content without obliterating my budget Yes, the mystery part is solid, but oh how MacRae s characters shine She s assembled a cast that should fuel the series for quite a while In the first book I tended to think Geneva the ghost was a pain in the neck that dragged the book down a bit, but although sh [...]
