Molly MacRae

Molly MacRae writes the Highland Bookshop Mysteries, about four women who reinvent their lives when they buy a bookshop in Inversgail on the west coast of Scotland, and the award-winning Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries, about a textile preservation specialist in Blue Plum, Tennessee, who ends up with a depressed ghost on her hands. Molly spent twenty years in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in northeast Tennessee, where she managed the Book Place, an independent bookstore; may it rest in peace. Before the lure of books hooked her, she was the curator of the history museum in Jonesborough, Tennessee's oldest town. Her short stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine for more than twenty years, and she won the Sherwood Anderson Award for Short Fiction. Molly lives with her family in Champaign, Illinois, where she connects children with books at the public library. Reviews for Plaid and Plagiarism Publishers Weekly ~ “Four women open a bookstore in Inversgail, Scotland, in this charming series debut from MacRae. It will be fun to see what these independent, resourceful, and likable women do next.” Marilyn Stasio - The New York Times ~ “A mystery about murder and mayhem in the Highlands. A new cozy mystery series in which the drama is tempered with humor.” Reviews for Last Wool and Testament Betty Hechtman, national bestselling author of Behind the Seams ~ "A great start to a new series! By weaving together quirky characters, an interesting small town setting, and a ghost with a mind of her own Molly MacRae has created a clever yarn you don't want to end." Booklist ~ "This is the first of a new series that should be popular with cozy fans." Reviews for Lawn Order Publisher's Weekly ~ "MacRae's witty first of a new cozy series." The Boston Globe ~ "Murder with a dose of drollery . . . Margaret, the independent-bookstore-owner-sleuth, entertains us as much as Nero Wolf's smart aleck sidekick, Archie Goodwin." Praise for Wilder Rumors Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes Mysteries ~ "Engaging characters, fine local color, and good writing make Wilder Rumors a winner." Kirkus Reviews ~ "An intriguing debut that holds the reader's interest from start to finish."
