Needles and Pearls - Gil McNeil - May 2010

Paula Phillips

Hi, my name is Paula Phillips. I work as a Children's and Teens Librarian by day and a Book Reviewer by night. I have an extensive reading background, having read the novels of more than 500 authors and counting.
 
Impressive and True :)

Is getting together with a group of girlfriends and knitting something that sounds like your cup of tea? If so then Gil McNeil's next installment in the Beach Street Knitting Group "Needles and Pearls" is the perfect light read for you to sit back and enjoy.

It has been a year since the car accident that took the life of Jo's husband Nick, a year since she arrived in the seaside town with her two boys Archie and Jack to take over her grandmother's knitting shop. Over the past year, Jo has made alot of new friends from Movie Star Grace who is now a mother to a cute baby girl Lily, Connie, Ellen and Elsie.

We read as this seems to be the season of new beginnings as announced are two weddings , a new relationship and a bundle of joy.  Jo's friend Ellen has just announced her engagement to Harry whom is nicknamed Dirty Harry and Jo's Gran is getting married again to Reg. It seems that romance is in the air as Jo is about to experience a lovely relationship with the local carpenter Martin , though just as Jo is getting into the groove of dating again, she is in for a big surprise as she finds out she is pregnant to Daniel- a photographer she had a fling with in Venice. Will Jo's baby put a dent in her relationships or will it be a deciding point in which guy she wishes to spend the rest of her life with - well for now.

All this and more with Gil McNeil’s Needles and Pearls which will in parts have you chuckling at the author’s sense of humour as you turn the pages.

    I love these kinds of stories, they always capture me as so many of us can relate to the characters and the twists and turns of their lives. I haven't read anything by Gil McNeil so this shoudl be an interesting read. I love an author who can spellbind me into another world and create the images in my mind as I'm reading almost like a movie that your mind is narrating.
