Sometimes it feels like their weekly knitting circle is the only thing that keeps Kathleen, Sari, and Lucy from falling apart. Their fine-gauge scarves may look fabulous, but their lives are starting to unravel...
For years, beautiful, flighty Kathleen has been living off of her famous actress sisters. When she moves out, she misses her life of luxury and begins to think that marrying rich might be an easy way to get it back.
Lucy is dating the man of her dreams-gorgeous, a brilliant scientist, going places-but when an animal rights group targets him, she starts to wonder whose side she's really on.
And Sari finds herself suddenly face-to-face again with the "it" boy from high school who still has it-he's gorgeous, sensitive, and kind, and he has a son who needs Sari's help. But can she ever forgive him for what he did to her brother a decade ago?
Caught between life, love, and pursuit of the perfect cast-on, these three friends learn that there are never any easy answers, except maybe one-that when the going gets tough, the tough get knitting.
Three L.A. girlfriends keep it together with their Sunday morning knitting circle in LaZebnik's sophomore warm-fuzzy (after Same as It Never Was). Charming, irresponsible Kathleen Winters is dependent on her identical twin sisters (semi-famous actresses reminiscent of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) for a paycheck and a home. After drunkenly spilling family secrets to a reporter, she sets off in a turquoise Mini Cooper to find an apartment and job of her own. Meanwhile, scientific researcher Lucy Cameron questions her career and love life as her lab and her self-righteous boyfriend become the targets of animal rights activists. Sari Hill faces the deepest conflict of all when the same "good-looking asshole" who tortured her brother in high school shows up with his autistic son at the autism clinic where she works. Each young woman re-examines her beliefs as the knitting projects--a hot pink bikini, a midnight blue baby blanket, a sweater--pass by. The tangled paths to three satisfying resolutions are marked by hot sex, an adorable gray kitten and, above all else, girl talk. LaZebnik juggles periods of personal crisis while maintaining her characters' complex individuality. Social knitters, especially, will relate to the bond that strengthens over the click-clack of the girls' needles. (Sept. 14)

The plot was very interesting and kept my attention the whole time.

4 . Loved it!
Posted March 23, 2010 by Jaclyn , Minneapolis, MNI bought this also when it was 1.99 and couldnt have been more pleased. I became so enthralled in the characters the only reason i put it down is to go to bed.
5 . Ok....
Posted March 03, 2010 by hawkeyemd , IADidn't love this book. Bought it when was 1.99. VERY light read, pretty predictable, nothing exciting.
6 . Sitcom material
Posted February 25, 2010 by Heather , GoulaI felt like I was reading an episode of desparate housewives, their single years. lol
It was an okay quick read and quite entertaining though I rolled my eyes quite a bit. Definately a nice suprise for being $1.99.
7 . my thoughts exactly!
Posted February 17, 2010 by kymmomof6 , eatonton,gaI agree 100% with 2 other reviews. The price tag is why I initially chose it and was so surprised by how delightful it was!! I couldn't put it down, the characters absorbed me!! I would love to read other stuff by this author and am looking forward to doing so!:0)
8 . It's a good 'yarn'
Posted February 16, 2010 by kj , smiths, alabamaI bought this when the 1.99 special popped up in my email, and i was pleasantly surprised at just how good it was. I wanted a nice light read and it was that, but the characters were really well done and not standard romance novel fare. They were quirky and funny and I would totally love to take my knitting and share a glass of wine with them.
9 . Great story!
Posted February 11, 2010 by Toni , PhillyI just finished this book during our record breaking snow storm in Philly. It was such a good story. I loved all the characters and hearing about their lives. Would be great to read another book by this author!!
