Again, the main character is Lydia Hoffman, the owner of the knitting shop, A Good Yarn. The story revolves around her, the shop, and the knitting class she starts. This time, it is socks. This class draws in three new customers - Elise, who is worried because her ex-husband who she still loves is back in town; Bethanne, a divorcee who is struggling with adjusting to single life, and desperately needs a job; and Courtney, a teenager new to Seattle, who has put on a lot of weight since the death of her mother and is about to start senior year, not knowing anyone. We watch as they grow in confidence, make friends, and resolve issues in their lives.
This is a good book. It is light, full of knitting, love, friendship and happiness. It is fairly predictable, but that does not spoil the book. I was engaged with this book, and didn't want to put it down. I really like how Macomber writes, she is easy to connect with and fun to read.
I enjoyed all the characters - I loved the knitters and hated those who were horrible, including Grant, Bethanne's mean ex-husband. I think Courtney was my favourite. She shows determination to get her life straightened out, and she is a good friend to all of them. I also liked how the characters from the first book, especially Jacqueline and Alix, were written into to this book, to keep the continuum going.
This is just an enjoyable book.
I love how it is based around one street with the shops and the character's that come in and out of the shops, their lives, loves,and losses but still keeping the regular characters they seem to grow the more you read these books into someone you or I might have met in our daily lives. I love how they intertwine with each other but keeping the base of the story.
I would highly recommend this author
