Everyone at Bless Your Art in Sweet River, Texas, is excited about the Yarn Goddess (yes, that’s her real name) coming to town. Ainsley McGregor has set up a special event at the local community center, but when old Mrs. Whedon doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the Goddess about using quality yarn, a fight breaks out. Who knew the octogenarian had ninja moves like that?
It’s all fun and games until George Clooney, Ainsley’s Great Dane, finds Ms. Yarn’s dead body in a booth at Bless Your Art. Now the prime suspect is Mrs. Whedon, and while she’s not the easiest woman to get along with, there’s no way she’s the killer. At least, Ainsley doesn’t think so. As this yarn unravels, Ainsley and her quirky friends learn some interesting things about the case and the Goddess’s checkered past. But there’s a killer on the loose, and George may be the only thing protecting Ainsley from certain death.

I’m having a blast with The Ainsley McGregor Series, and A Case for the Yarn Maker just made that official. Leave it to George Clooney (the dog not the actor) to have his nose to the ground and be in a full protective mode as Ainsley, once again, finds herself on a murder case. This one involving the Yarn Goddess (yes, that is her actual name) and one feisty octogenarian who after a fight with the Yarn Goddess over well, yarn, is now the prime suspect – but of course she didn’t do it, right? And now it’s up to Ainsley and George to get to the bottom of this puzzle – all the while keeping themselves safe as well.
As with any Cozy Mystery review, I’m not going to mention anything that you couldn’t find in the Cover Description for you really need to puzzle this one out for yourself — and have a fun time in the process. If you love a really good Cozy Mystery with quirky characters, twists, turns, red herrings, and one very smart pup then you’ll want to pick up A Case for the Yarn Maker real soon.
