Crewel and Unusual: A Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery by Molly MacRae

Kath is looking forward to the opening of the Blue Plum Vault.  It's in an old bank building that has been remodeled and now will house several small shops where artists will sell their work.  When two nosy sisters visit her yarn shop and tell her about a linen they saw there, she goes to see if she can peek at it before they open.  She gets to see it but the next time it's taken out of the box, it has been destroyed...

Pegasus Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on January 1st.

She's upset the embroidered linen was destroyed but the owner is even more livid.  The owner blames its destruction on another vendor who just as vehemently denies it.  The police aren't having any luck finding the vandal.  And there's a ghost in this building as well as in her store.  It's a good thing not everyone can hear Kath's ghost's comments.

First there was murder at a rest stop, then the linen was destroyed, and then the linen's owner is killed.  They live in a small town.  Who could be evil enough to do all this?

Kath and her boyfriend, Joe, work on trying to run the murderer down.  They eventually decide to use gossip to set a trap.  Now if they can just carry this off without getting killed themselves...
