    One thought on “Died in the Wool”

    1. A rose show shouldn't cause murder but there is a possibility that the one Tori O'Shea is in charge of did. Not to mention she is buying what many consider a haunted house of vast proportions.Tori, her family and the town of New Kassel, Missouri were a delight to read about. This happens to be book #10 in this series, but no matter - you can jump right in and learn as you go. The house Tori wants to buy is an old Victorian in which all three siblings killed themselves. This didn't happen recentl [...]

    2. This is one of my favorite adult mystery series. Torie O'Shea feels like an old friend- she's a genealogist, while I'm very interested in genealogy, and she's also very nosy and can't stop until she's found out the whole story and I'm well, nosy too! This one involves a century old mystery- about a family whose three grown children all committed suicide. The daughter of the family made exquisite quilts. When Torie's friend is poisoned after touching one of the quilts Torey wonders if the woman r [...]

    3. Torie O'Shea has a chance to establish a textile museum when the old home of an expert quilter goes on the market. The house has a story to tell, and Torie researches it. A good read.

    4. Let me start by saying that I’m a fan of Rett MacPherson’s Torie O’Shea series. I’ve read almost all of the books because I am drawn to the genealogy angle even though in the early books Torie relied much too heavily on consulting family charts for her “research.” Basically, MacPherson’s tells a ripping good yarn, and Torie is quite likeable. However, with the quilt errors in Died in the Wool I found it impossible to suspend my disbelief, especially in light of the fact that Torie, [...]

    5. My Rating : ThuMBS uP!This is the first book I have read in a while with no exotic romantic scenes in it. So no covering the childrens eyes. Shoot some of these books have such explicit scenes – my face blushes.My daughter was the first to read this book and she then recommended it to me. She enjoyed it so that while I was reading the book she would ask where I was in the book and what I thought so far.I enjoyed the old house mystery in this book – it reminded me of the house mystery in “U [...]

    6. Torie is busy, as usual. She is helping to organize a Roses weekend, even though she knows nothing about roses. Her three kids are growing fast and the two oldest are in the "teen" years. Early in the book she admits to being a bit bored and lo and behold a new project pops up. An historical house comes up for sale and Torie wants it. The house has a terrible story attached to it, all three children of the original owner committed suicide. The daughter also happens to have been a fantastic needl [...]

    7. Died In The WoolRett MacPhersonSt. Martin’s Minotaur, 2007, 226 ppsBN No. 978-0-312-36221-8The old Kendall House in New Kassell is haunted. At least the current owner thinks that it is and wants to sell it as soon as possible. Torie O’Shea who already owns Gaheimer House decides that she will buy the Kendall House and set up a museum for quilts. Glory Kendall was famous for her quilts and evidently, many of the quilts remain in the residence.When Torie finds out that all three of the Kendall [...]

    8. A few years ago, I tried a book from this series. And I didn't finish it and for the life of me I can't remember why. I might not have been ready for the writing or the cozy aspect or something. Glad I gave Rett MacPherson and the people of New Kassel Missouri another chance. This is a very well written book, with me trying to make time for it as often as I could. I was rather envious of Torie's smarts and stubborn need to solve the mystery of the suicides of the three siblings in the house in l [...]

    9. After the new not yet released book Rebel Yell that I read, this book was a nice mystery and fast to read. It was a delight to read about something different. This is not a knitting mystery like some I have been reading. Actually it has much information about handmade quilts. It is part of a series of books by this author, Rett MacPherson. They all have one main character, Torie O'Shea. She is the president of the historical society in New Kassel, Missouri. She has fun with everything that she t [...]

    10. In the 10th installment of the Torie O'Shea series by Rett MacPherson, she'd gotten herself into a pickle this time around. She had a lot of hands, since she ran the Gaheimer House of genealogical research and handling artifacts. One of her daughters, Mary, had a rebellious streak. Plus she was in charge of the rose show, and buying the Kendall house. When Evan Merchant decided to sell his house, Torie wanted to buy it for a textile museum. From there, she decided to uncover the mystery behind t [...]

    11. Spoilers Below!This book is different from the other Torie O'Shea mysteries. There isn't a modern day murder or antagonist that parallels the historical mystery, which is both good and bad. I think that's a good thing because it gives the series depth instead of being a Scooby-Doo episode every time. It's a bad thing for suspense though. My curiosity kept me turning the pages, but in the end, the solution to the mystery was anticlimatic and depressing.I did enjoy the WWI and quilting references. [...]

    12. A very well written book by Rett Macpherson who is one of my favourite author among cozy mystery writers. I simply loved Tori’s character and the setting of Missouri. There is lots of humour in the story and also quilting history. This is typical Rett Macphesrson book which has all the elements of cozy mystery present in the plot with amteur sleuth; our protagonist Tori, know it all Elenor, town mayor Collin who’s irritating as ever. A nice book to read when one is tired of violence and wild [...]

    13. I didn't like this one as well as most of the series. Torie was trying to figure out if the triple suicides that occurred in a local historical house were really murders or not. In the meantime, she's having a hell of a time with her daughter Mary acting like a brat, and that got old to me. Still, like all of her books, it's an easy read with some interesting facts about how one goes about investigating historical documents. Also, she does a really great job of developing entertaining secondary [...]

    14. This is #10 in the series about Victory O'Shea and since I have previously only read the first 5 I have spaces to fill in with books 6-9.Part of the enjoyment of such cozy mysteries as this series Is the getting to know all about a family and catching up on their lives. This time out Victory wants to buy a local house which the current owner believes to be haunted. Three siblings committed suicide in the early 20's and Tory investigates these suicides while preparing an textile museum to display [...]

    15. Torie gets to buy the old Kendall place with some of her newly-inherited money. The house stands aas it did decades ago, when the three Kendall siblings all committed suicide within months of each other. But, was it really suicide? Torie, fascinated with the story of Glory Kendall and her beautiful quilts, aims to find out.

    16. This is a 'cozy' little mystery that I really enjoyed. The main character is a genealogist [right up my alley] and she is out to solve crimes committed in the 1920's. A friend of mine recommended this author and now I'll be searching for her other books.

    17. I was at half price books an I was looking in the mystery section when i happened to come over this book. It looks like a very good book. I would like to read it because I like a good mystery story. If you have a question, please leave it in the comment section. Have a great day.

    18. I did not think I would like thisbut I did! It was so funny and cute! The mystery was very well done. I really, really liked it and I was so surprised!

    19. This is a new author for me. The main character solved a "cold case" mystery from the past. The story was very entertaining. I enjoyed the time I spent with this book.

    20. I read this in a day and liked it. I liked the mix of mystery, history, and quilting facts. And I didn't figure it out half-way through either. There was a handful of swear words.

    21. Torie buys the "haunted" Kendall pace in the midst of the rose show. Family that owned the house had three suicides in the house within 9 months. Interesting.

    22. I almost quit reading the Torie O'Shea series after the last one. I'm glad I came back around. Someone on the back cover of this book described it as a "cozy read". Perfect description.

    23. I enjoy this series. Tori and her daughter Mary are a hoot. Love that genealogy is used to solve a long ago tragedy.
