You Can’t Keep a Good Ghost Down

by Kath Rutledge from the Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries by Molly MacRae

Have you ever tried concentrating while someone’s flying around the room? I mean, literally, Geneva is flying around and around and around the room. I’d ask her to stop (because she’s beginning to make me dizzy) but how can I do that? She’s so excited—or in her words (at the top of her lungs)—“I HAVEN’T BEEN THIS HAPPY SINCE THE DAY BEFORE I DIED!”

Well, okay, that sounds kind of macabre, but it’s probably true. Geneva’s the ghost who came to stay at The Weaver’s Cat, my fiber and fabric shop in Blue Plum, Tennessee. She was pretty depressed when I met her in Last Wool and Testament. But through the adventures we’ve shared, in four other books, she’s gradually been coming to terms with her “situation.”

But why is Geneva so excited today? Because we have news to share, and I promised her that she can be the one to tell you. Be prepared, though, because she’s still flying around the room. Are you ready, Geneva?   
So there you have it. We’ll all be back and solving mysteries again in Crewel and Unusual and Yarned and Dangerous. We ask your patience, though, because our author has to write the books before you can read them. But we’ll keep you posted on her progress. Now here’s Geneva, again. She has one more thing she’d like to tell you.

  1. I too am thrilled, and If I could fly, I'd be flying around the room with Geneva. When I heard that another of my favorite series had been cancelled, I found myself mourning the characters I had come to know and love, especially Geneva! Tell he I said Hi!

    1. Thank you, Barb. Ardis and Joe and all the rest of us were sad when the series was cancelled, but we knew we'd be okay. Ardis and I were worried about Geneva, though. She was finally feeling "alive-ish" and the thought of telling her there'd be no more adventures was awful. So this news came as a huge relief. Thanks for sharing the joy! I'll definitely tell Geneva hi for you!

  2. I'm with Geneva - Wooooohooooo! This is such wonderful news. I love this series. I can't wait to read the next two books.

  3. Yay! I am so happy there will be more!

    So excited to hear This! Love these mysteries!!! Can't wait!

  5. What a wonderful thing. Let Geneva know that I appreciate her letting us know the good news. And I wish I could fly too.
