The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Teaser: The story is centered around Georgia and her 12-year-old daughter, Dakota. Georgia is a single "mom-prenuer" who runs a successful Yarn Store in New York. She has raised her wonderful daughter all by herself, and hasn't seen Dakota's father since she found out she was pregnant--almost 13 years. Her struggles have made her tough and business-savvy as she finally finds herself on solid ground. Unfortunately, that foundation begins to crumble as Georgia finds herself face-to-face with Dakota's father in her shop one morning. To make matters worse, he is determined to be a permanent fixture in her daughter's life--the daughter that he abandoned before she was ever born.

Short Thought: This is the ultimate chic lit. We see women from all walks of life, dealing with very real and gritty situations, coming to together for varying purposes for a weekly knitter's meeting.

Expanded Thoughts: This was the first chick lit I have read since The Notebook (had to read it after the movie came out). I am not a big fan of chick lit because it usually has way too much drama, way too descriptive sex, and little depth.

This novel pleasantly surprised me. (I originally picked it up because I am an avid knitter.) It was entertaining, witty, and had great plot twists. I recommend this to any gal who is looking for a good read.

Recommended Especially For: A fan of movies like "Now and Then," "Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," and "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"
