Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 2/7/2014

    " Good book, just a bit on the cheesy side and everything wraps up a little too nicely for me in the end given the time frame. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 2/4/2014

    " Reminded me a lot of the early Mitford books by Jan Karon - but with a bit more reality. Great tie-ins with other classic books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 1/28/2014

    " Kind of like all the other knitting, baking, quilting, reading club books but liked it anyway. Can't have too many knitting, baking, quilting, reading club books Ha Ha! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 1/27/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/15/2014

    " At first I was thinking there were too many characters and how do I keep track of them. But once I got into the story, I couldn't stop reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maureen | 1/8/2014

    " Loved this one. A great combination of books and knitting with some small town craziness thrown in! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 1/1/2014

    " I read it as a book club selection. It was light reading and a little on the "sweet" side, but enjoyable and some good character development eventually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 12/26/2013

    " A light read that deals with heavy topics. The characters are well-defined, the problems they face realistic, and the story lines interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikki | 12/23/2013

    " if you like books of the genre women in a circle of friends this is a good one "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynda | 12/7/2013

    " I did not finish this one. I didn't find any of the characters interesting. It was similar to Debbie Macombers Blossom Street series but not nearly as good or as well developed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/2/2013

    " Surprisingly deep. I connected with all of these characters much more than I had anticipated. I picked up this book expecting a quick, fluffy read and was pleasantly surprised with the depth of characters. I'll definitely be reading more by Beth Pattillo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 9/10/2013

    " Good, interesting fiction. Very down-to-earth enjoyable. "

    " Comfort read full of life crisis solved over the knitting needles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadine | 5/10/2013

    " I think this will be a fun series to read. You get to know each of the main characters quite well and become engaged in their lives. I just wish the name of the of the book was Knit AND Lit Society--it would make for a smoother title read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carine | 3/14/2012

    " A sweet and cozy book. When I started it, I was reminded of the atmosphere in the Mitford books. I don't knit, but I read, in fact I read a lot, so this book was right up my alley! One think is sure, I'll have to read those children classics! And maybe one day I'll try my hand at knitting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorie Bonano | 7/15/2011

    I read the second book first, but it was nice to read the first book to find out where everyone "came" from.

    Looking forward to the next book in the series. "
