The warm and witty sequel to The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club

Slip one . . .

Two weddings and a year after her husband's funeral, Jo Mackenzie is finally starting to get the hang of being a single parent. The boys are thriving, the yarn shop is doing well--thanks to Jo's improvements--and she's just about keeping her head above water.

Knit two together . . .

But a man from Jo's past and a new romance with the hunky local carpenter come along and make life a whole lot more interesting.

Cast off . . .

Can Jo cope when things get really complicated? Because if knitting really does keep you sane when life starts to unravel, Jo's going to need much bigger needles.

Review:

"A brief affair after the death of her philandering husband yields a surprising result for a shopkeeper in McNeil's warm and fuzzy sequel to The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club. Jo Mackenzie's succeeded in rehabbing her Gran's wool shop in Broadgate, a lovely seaside town in England. Her Stitch and Bitch class is popular; her two young boys, Archie and Jack, have settled in; and her Gran's getting married. But Jo's liaison with Daniel Fitzgerald, a globe-trotting photographer, has ended, leaving Jo to sort out what's next. Big changes and a bevy of stressful obstacles test her mettle and reorder her world. Will Martin Trent, the newly divorced son of her Gran's friend, be a part of it? It's a little on the chatty side, but McNeil spins a comfy, hopeful yarn with believable characters." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to "The Beach Street Knitting Society & Yarn Club," McNeil picks right up with small-town intrigue, packed lunches, and the joys of knitting--not to mention romance.
