This is book 2 in the series, and I plan to continue to read this series, because I like the ghost and the cat. But I really found this book disjointed. Something didnt click. The parts that did click were Kath with the Ghost Genevea. Plus these 2 are working on naming the cat who is friendly to both of them. I also liked the part about Kath now being able to feel the emotions of people when they touched her.

The mystery was fine, but again it all seemed disjointed. People would come into the story and I wondered why they were there. Disjointed. Exits and entrances were jarring.
I dont remember book one being like that.

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 she's still a pill in Dyeing Wishes, she starts taking an interest in something other than herself and I began to soften towards her. Geneva drives Kath batty with her constant references to television programs, so Kath decides to wean her away from the boob tube-- and her solution will make any reader laugh and want to give Kath a high five.

Another thing I enjoy so much in these books is the wordplay-- for example, when Deputy Cole Dunbar refers to the Friday Fast and Furious knitting group as "the frantic and flabbergasted." MacRae slips these into the story stealthily, so beware: drink at your own peril.

If I have any little quibble at all with this book, I'd like to have seen more fiber in the storyline-- and I'm talking fabric, not food. If you're in the mood for interesting characters and a mystery laced with humor, I recommend heading down to Tennessee to visit with Kath Rutledge at her shop, the Weaver's Cat.
