Last Wool and Testament is a fun, scary, humorous, and entertaining cozy murder mystery with appealing, quirky, and, yes, annoying characters. Kath is racing to be on time to her Grandmother's funeral when Deputy Dunbar stops her to give her a ticket for speeding. To add insult to injury, he implies that Ivy had been a murder suspect before she died of a heart attack. Kath expects to inherit her Grandmother's house as well as The Weaver's Cat, her fabric and fiber store, but it seems that Ivy had sold the house to the murdered man, Emmett. Unraveling the mystery surrounding Em's death and Ivy's secrets is complicated by Geneva, a ghost who haunts the cottage Where Em was killed and where Kath temporarily calls home. The plot is an exciting adventure with twists and turns in this well written novel. In fact, like me, I bet you won't be able to read just one!

I believe I made a valient effort to even finish this book, but alas only made it to Chapter 21 before I got fed up with the idiot characters - the attorney, Homer, who kept telling Kath "remember slander" so even she could not name possible suspects in the house break ins, yet the Spievey twins and everyone esle could slander Kath. And Kath, comes off as a total idiot. No, this is one book that I wasted my money on. Besides no one, not even the Deputy is too concerned in finding Emmet Cobb's killer. This book is a big dud.

    An enjoyable comfort book!

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer Dawn

    I thoroughly enjoyed Last Wool and Testament. The setting is a small town called Blue Plum. It’s a town where everyone knows everyone’s business.

    Kath is our main character. She’s pretty sassy; she’s just plain likeable. She returns to Blue Plum to take care of her grandmother’s estate. We learn about Ivy through Kath’s memories. We follow Kath while she runs across almost everyone in town for one reason or another. Each character is quirky, making them stand out. Deputy Dunbar, the Spivey twins, Ten, Ardis, Max, Nicki – I felt like I knew them. Even the ghost is temperamental. I consider that to be excellent character development.

    It begins with questions about who killed Emmett Cobb and why. More murders happen along the way. Kath gets to know her grandmother much better as she goes through her things and hears more from her close-knit (pun intended) group.

    I don’t want to give too much away but the plot keeps you guessing. It reminded me of playing the game, Clue. It’s a fun, lighthearted murder mystery.

    Curl up in front of a fireplace with a blanket to keep you warm and maybe a glass of wine – it’s that kind of book; a comfort book like comfort food.

    I’d like to keep up with the series. I’m dying to know about Kath’s powers.

    I am generally not a mystery reader, but I found myself looking

    I am generally not a mystery reader, but I found myself looking forward to going back to this story over and over again. It was like going home. The characters were fun and multi-faceted. I didn't guess the ending, which I really liked. I will definitely be in line for the second installment this summer! You should pick up a copy of MacRae's Lawn Order if you liked this one! Lots of fun!

    Delightful Cozy Mystery

    The first book in McRae's new series is a delightful treat: great characters, a homey setting, and minimal violence. I loved Kath's running internal monologue; very funny.

    This is the perfect read for a rainy afternoon. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series.
