After a local baker in Blue Plum, Tennessee, is shot by a real gun during a historical reenactment, Kath Rutledge investigates whether killed used her shop as a sniper's nest. Original. 20,000 first printing. - (Baker & Taylor)

Kath Rutledge is settling in as the owner of the Weaver’s Cat, a fiber and fabric shop in Blue Plum, Tennessee. But nothing, not even the ghost haunting her shop, prepares her for the mystery that will leave the whole town spinning....

It’s time for Blue Plum’s annual historical festival, and everyone?including Kath and her spunky fiber and needlework group, TGIF?is getting in on the action. Expert spinners are being gathered, and a businessman has approached Kath about using the second-floor windows of her store for part of a reenactment. But the reenactment ends in real-life bloodshed when local baker Reva Louise Snapp is shot?with a bullet from a modern-day gun.

Kath has her theories about who wanted to end Reva Louise’s life. But there’s also talk of a sniper stalking Blue Plum, and Kath’s shop is suspected to be the murderer’s hideout. Now Kath, her TGIF pals, and the gloomy ghost, Geneva, must unravel the mystery quickly, or someone else might be left hanging by a thread....

Library Journal Reviews

What should have been a lighthearted festival complete with a historical reenactment goes dark when one of the locals is shot and killed. Worse yet, the victim, Reva Louise, was shot from the upstairs window of Kath Rutledge's shop, the Weaver's Cat. Quick as can be, the TGIF (Thank Goodness It's Fiber) group rallies around to solve the case. Reva was related to one of the TGIF members, but her behavior encouraged murderous impulses in many; she was a husband stealer and a small-time embezzler. At the same time, Kath continues to slowly unravel the mystery surrounding Geneva, her shop's sad ghost, collecting clues and aiming to bring the spirit some peace. VERDICT Librarian MacRae does a superb job of coordinating her amateur sleuth ensemble cast while not overdoing the ghost angle in her third paranormal series (after Dyeing Wishes), set in Tennessee. Snappy repartee and genuine warmth are both conducive to the best sort of cozy. For fans of Sue Ann Jaffarian ("Ghost of Granny Apples" series), Denise Swanson, and Leann Sweeney.
