Last Wool and Testament
Last Wool and Testament - Molly MacRae

#1 Haunted Yarn Shop

 

I really didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. Kath has come back to her grandmother's home town in TN for the funeral and to put all to rights. But she meets a deputy who seems to antagonize her and calls her grandmother crazy. When she gets to the funeral she is late and then meets up with some of her grandmother's friends. Nicki has been helping herself to some of her grandmother's clothing and says that she was given it. The other problem is that people are dying and Kath feels she needs to find out who is doing all the killing and keep herself alive as she does. She also meets up with the ghost who is living in the house that she is allowed to live in when she learns that her grandmother's house is now owned by someone else and she cannot get in. 

 

There was just too much happening and too many antagonistic behaviors. At times I felt that I just wanted to DNF the book and I am uncertain if they get better later in the series or if I should just quit here.

DIED IN THE WOOL by Peggy Ehrhart
Died In The Wool - Peggy Ehrhart
To help the school athletics program raise funds, the Knit Club knits aardvark mascots to sell.  The day of the festival the richest neighbor is found murdered under the Knit Club's booth table with an aardvark lying on his chest.  Who is responsible?  Who wants to blame the Knit Club?  The group becomes the target of gossips and they will not let their group be denigrated.  So off they go to solve the crime.
 
I enjoyed this book.  As I get to know the characters I see their different personality quirks and how the fit together to make them a good group to hang with.  The men in their lives also have their quirks which is why some work together with Pamela and Bettina to find the murderer while their wives, who are members of the group, won't stoop to gossip.  It is a fun to watch how they receive the insults from the town and how they counteract them.  I look forward to the next segment.

Wool (Omnibus Edition) by Hugh Howey
Wool Omnibus (Silo, #1, Wool, #1-5) - Hugh Howey

This is a book I saw on a list of the "Best Science Fiction of the 21st Century" on that other website so I chose to read it blindly, without any idea what it was about.  I read the first chapter and it was really written okay, and then the second chapter made me think 'am I wasting my time reading this".  I think it was the third chapter that Hugh Howey took the key and threw it away, locking me into this book and making me not stop reading it.

 

I've never really read an apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic book and Howey really came out with a new way of life with something new and surprising around each corner.  Since this has been out for seven years I'm not really going to get into the book but I am going to say that I was entertained and happy that I read it.  I also listened to the audiobook by Minnie Goode, which is done the way I expect Juliette to sound. I read the Kindle in Motion, free for Kindle Prime members.  The pictures and motion really didn't make the book better but made it different.

 

I've got too many on my TBR list to get to the next book in this series, but I eventually will.
