Blue Plum,Tennesse, a place I would love to be, is holding a historical festival called "Blue Plum Preserves" and Kath Rutledge and her lively group of knitters known as TGIF (Thank Goodness It's Fiber) at the Weavers Cat, a fiber and fabric shop are honing in on the act literally. When business man and playwright, J. Scott Prescott approaches Kath, the owner about using the shop as the backdrop to reenact a scene for a play he wrote featured in the Blue Plum Preserves festival. Kath does not like guns which are a part of the play but J. Scott reassures her that no one will be hurt so she reluctantly agrees.

Baker at Mel's Diner, Reva Louise and someone that everyone loved to hate becomes a fatality when her life ends from a gun shot, that was meant to be a blank during the reenactment of the play. But her death is clouded in suspicion from the get go. Mostly Everyone that Reva Louise knew has a reason to want her dead and with The Weavers Cat, the known hideaway for a killer, its up to Kath and her high spirited group of knitters and a ghost that lurks within The Weavers Cat?s walls to find out the truth before the rest of them will be spinning in their graves.

Knitters will love this series with a little paranormal mixed in gives the story it's mistique. I really enjoyed the characters and the setting in Tennessee, myself always wanting to go there. Being a want-to-be knitter myself that's what attracted me to this series. I can't wait to read the next in the series, book four, Plagued by Quilt coming from Berkley Prime Crime In December 2014.


  1. This sounds like a great story! I like cozies with the paranormal mixed in!

  2. Nice review Bella, I have this series on my wishlist.

  3. Enjoyed the blog review and would really like to read this book. Have a LOT of others on my to be read list but still like to keep adding to it. Sounds like a fun/interesting adventure. :)
