Torie O’Shea wears several hates in the community. As the local historical-society president, and genealogist, she is sometimes in a frenzy to hurriedly get things done. Then there are times things just come to a screeching halt.

Evan Merchant decides to have an estate sale. He is putting the Old Kendall house on the market. After staying in it for a week, he saw enough eerie things to last a lifetime.

Torie learns that the old Kendall house is going up for sale. She would love to turn the home into a museum to honor the quilts of Glory Kendall. There is history surrounding the house that is a mystery to the townspeople and being known as a bit nosey, Torie is interested. It seems three siblings killed themselves; one being Glory, the famous quilt-maker. Torie pays Evan a visit to discuss the exquisite quilts and turning the house into a historic home. Evan lives in the guesthouse out back. He refuses to stay in the home because of all the activity. Just the few days he spent there, he found it haunted. After seeing a woman up in the window, he asked the new sheriff, Mort Joachim, to check it out. Not only that, he tells Torie about a type of morning glory that springs forth every year like clockwork. Torie is curious about the history and does a bit of investigating on her own. Then a real murder is committed, leaving her to find out the truth.

The minute I started reading Died in the Wool, I wanted to jump in with Torie and do some digging of my own. Of course I would probably need a pair of roller skates to keep up with the busy gal. She can certainly put a smile on any face with all her exhilarating adventures. I could almost see the expressions on Evan’s face when he was discussing the things he had seen in the house. Ms MacPherson draws genuine characters the reader can relate to and fall in love with. I love how she makes Torie like a jack of all trades person. The girl is smart and can bring on the humor. I love the way Torie digs into the past, and solves the mysteries, that make the book a spinning good read.
