About Knot the Usual Suspects, from the publisher:
In the latest from the bestselling author of Plagued by Quilt, Kath Rutledge yarn bombs Blue Plum, Tennessee-and gets tangled up in the mystery of a bumped-off bagpiper.

Although shaken, Kath and her knitting group go forward with their yarn installation-only to hit a deadly snag. Now, with the help of Geneva, the ghost who haunts her shop, Kath and TGIF need to unravel the mystery before someone else gets kilt!
