Summary:

Review:

When Knit Two was released, I wasn’t really sure about the prospect of a sequel to The Friday Night Knitting Club.  I enjoyed the book but I didn’t really know if Jacobs could turn it into a series.  With Knit the Season, she has put all my doubts to rest.

What I liked about Knit the Season was the fact that it wasn’t about earth-shattering events.  It seemed much more about every day life.  These characters were friends – since I already knew them, Jacobs didn’t have to sell them to me.  She didn’t need to create drama in order to keep me interested.  However, she didn’t take advantage of that either.  She wrote engaging storylines for each character, plots that had to do with the times in between rather than just the dramatic moments that novels tend to focus on.

However, Jacobs also isn’t afraid allow her characters to grow and develop, even if the direction they head is apart from one another.  Often in series novels, authors make sure everything stays the same so they can write another book after the current one.  In the real world though, people’s lives go on, but that doesn’t mean they have to move on from one another.  Jacobs demonstrates this very effectively in Knit the Season.

I really enjoyed Knit the Season and I certainly hope this won’t be the last book in the Friday Night Knitting Club series.  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

  7. I had such mixed feelings after finishing FNKC, I really wasn’t sure I could pick up another book in the series… and I’m still undecided, haha! But I’m definitely intrigued by this one and would love to meet up with Dakota again. Maybe I will get the second someday and work my way to this one…

  13. I am so glad you enjoyed the book. I did also. I feel that this book is so rich that it could have been longer. But you know then I guess people could complain that it dragged. I like the hairy details. 🙂 Have to say I really liked the book also. I would love to see the series continue ..and yet I don’t want anything lost.

  15. I haven’t read these but I bet I’d really like them. The premise reminds of those books about village life in Britian — nothing much has to happen, we just get learn about some great characters and their various lives and interactions.
