Kate Jacobs has come out with the latest installment of the Friday Night Knitting Club series, Knit the Season. As a knitter, I enjoyed the first book in the series, Friday Night Knitting Club while on vacation a few years ago. I loved her second novel (unrelated to this series) Comfort Food.

Knit the Season is focused on Dakota this time, which is nice. If you have read the other two books in the series, you do get caught up with several of the characters and what they have been up to in recent

I'm reminded of blockbuster movie sequels that have no substance because the creators know their audience will come see it no matter what.

Jacobs is a talented writer with a unique ability to create flawed characters that are so engaging and real. That said - this book was a huge disappointment. Full of preachy cliches about family love, complete with the now-college-aged Dakota spouting off sage advice out of nowhere (the cause of much eye-rolling and skimming on my part) - every single scene c

I feel that this is a great end to the series and am hoping this is indeed the last book. I enjoyed the first book very much, and was excited to get the second book and then quickly disappointed when I read it.

This book was more tolerable than the last book, however there were a few things that could have been changed. I'm happy to see that the writer dropped the racial issues with Dakota, that was really annoying in the second book.

There was a bit too much opinions from the friends of the group

KNIT THE SEASON is my first Kate Jacobs book. I realize that I began this "series" on book three, and I understand that these are continuing characters. I also realize that I did not get much enjoyment from the story and found most of the characters dull and lackluster and the story less than engrossing.

A great deal of the story involves reminiscences about Georgia, the joint owner of a knitting shop. For someone who has been dead for six years there is a lot of print devoted to her...which wou

No spoilers.
Blurb: a return to the characters of Friday Night Knitting Club, with Dakota nearly all grown up. A pass-the-time kind of novel that surprisingly, brought me to tears.
Longer version: I listened to the audiobook of the first in the series, and it wasn't my favorite book, but was a nice little story of a young mother and her friends. I selected this audiobook, mostly because I thought it would be a nice unchallenging little listen. And, for the most part it was. It doesn't require grea

I have to say that, considering how much I liked Friday Night Knitting Club, I'm pretty disappointed with not only the plot (or should I say lack of plot) in this third book in the series, but with the wooden dialogue and two-dimensional characters.

I read the whole thing, but it took over a week because I was just not getting caught up in the characters like I had before. It was kind of like watching the re-make of 'The Women', in that you expect great things because you like all the actresses a

sometimes a familiar set of a characters, and a book that doesn't require much thought is just what i'm looking for. this was exactly that.

I loved the Friday Night Knitting Club and Knit Two by Jacobs so I was looking forward to reading this book. Plus, you have to read at least one holiday like book during the holidays. I have to admit that while I enjoyed this book, it didn't measure up to the first books. I did enjoy reading the snippets of Georgia's life and also seeing this character from the points of view of her family which is something that hasn't been done yet. I also love all the wonderful characters in this series. I fo ...more

This book was given to me as a gift, and as I enjoy reading books about the holidays during the month of December, it proved to be just the right time ...

The story revolves mainly around Dakota Walker, who has left college to attend culinary school, while also keeping up with things at the yarn shop of her late mother, Walker & Daughter. She has help in the person of Peri, who manages things day-to-day, as well as from the women in the Friday Night Knitting Club, and Dakota's father as well.

This is the third book in the Friday Night Knitting Club series. It picks up immediately after Knit Two. Dakota is going to cooking school and the holidays are fast approaching. She is feeling the pressure because she has set up an internship at a hotel over Christmas and her father has just arranged for everyone to go see Gran in Scotland for the holidays. Peri has also just told her about an incredible opportunity she was offered in Paris but that would take her away from Walker and Daughter. ...more

Me encantó! Realmente sentí que cerré un ciclo
Antes de leer este libro leí sus reseñas y la mayoría eran malas así que lo empecé sin mucha expectativa pero es como si hubiera vivido el libro.
Simplemente sencillo y sentimental, todo un chicklit
Mary
This was a pretty good book. I enjoyed visiting the Friday Night Knitting Club again. But it is rather redundent to explain every time who the characters are. Debbie Macomber does a character list in each book to keep people in the know about what is going on. I don't think if you have followers who read each book as they come out it is necessary to rehash whos who.

I am going to try Comfort Food and see if I enjoy that better.
Tini
You know those movie series where the first one makes you really want to see the second one, the second one leaves you disappointed but still willing to see the third, and by the time the trilogy is over, you find yourself thinking "dear God, why didn't they just stop with the first?"

Yeah.

Here you have that same emotion, in book form.
Susannah Carleton
I enjoyed this book very much. It nicely tied up all the story threads from the previous books. In this book, the main character is Dakota, the daughter of the main character in the first book. I enjoyed reading about her becoming an adult.

The book was not as Christmas-y as the title led me to expect, but it was a very good read.
Judi
This was wonderful! The shortest and the best of the three books about the Friday Night Knitting Club. Dakota's twenty, no longer a child and everyone is starting to get on with their own dreams. But their not deserting her! So much of their lives still revolve around Dakota and the yarn shop and the knitting group. They're getting married by twos and she's maid of honor for both! They're starting new careers in Paris and contracting with the yarn shop for her mother's designs. They're finally g ...more

This is a series book. Most books like this give you a complete rundown of each character, storyline, etc. so you can jump into any of the books and still figure out what's going on. I kind of hate that, but when a book doesn't do a very good job of covering that material, you really notice it. It makes the rest of the book really hard to enjoy. Even though I've read all the other books (quite a while ago), I had a hard time re-remembering all the characters and struggled getting into the book b ...more

Unfortunately, this didn't do it for me. I thought the story was slow moving and wish the entire novel had been from Dakota's perspective. It was a bit confusing and the plot was thin. Considering how much I loved the other two, it was disappointing.
Aubrey Anne
The perfect ending to a great series. Books #1 and #3 made me tear up, so I was glad that this last one was equally emotional as the first. Dakota has grown up into an adult now, it was good to know how her life turned out after the first two books.

The final book in the Friday Night Knitting Club series takes us through the holidays season as big changes are afoot for the members of the club. Set one year after the last installment, Anita and Marty are finally getting married, Catherine's relationship with Marco is growing deeper, Peri's business . Is really taking off, and Dakota's finally enrolled in a culinary school doing what she loves while learning how to be an adult.

While the other books were cute, I just didn't care much for this

Doesn't compare to the first Friday Night Knitting Club, which is still my favorite.

I have been meaning to read this for a while and given that it's the holiday season, I decided to get it read. This third in a series continues the story of the women in the Walker and Daughter Friday night Knitting Club after Georgia, the owner's, passing. Georgia's daughter, Dakota, must decide the fate of the knitting shop and face the reality of life - that things change. I loved the first Friday Night Knitting Club book, but have to say the series has gotten progressively less interesting a ...more

This is the third book in the series and clearly the worst! I couldn't even read it. Its only a Christmas story because it happens during December but the writing is horrible! The Friday Night Knitting Club was a fun read and the author should have left it at that. The continuing characters are just not strong enough to carry the story. Its just a lot of contrite situations and bad dialogue even worse than the second book. Unfortunately I'm abandoning this one, I'd rather read something interest ...more

Sometimes you need to just let a series end with some lingering questions, reader assumptions, etc. This series should have ended with book 2, and at the very least this book should have been a novella, not a full length novel.
The character focus in this book is Dakota, the daughter of Georgia who was the main character of book 1. Georgia has been dead for a few years now and everyone is still trying to find their footing after her loss. Dakota splits her time between the Knit Shop and Culinary

Ah, a Christmas book. Sadly it wasn't that good. I've read some of Kate Jacob's other stuff and liked it, but just wasn't as impressed with this one. If you haven't read any of the other books in the series, I don't really recommend reading this one as you'll be completely lost.

Its a few years down the road and Dakota is busy in pastry school and running her late mother's knitting shop. She lives with her dad and is growing closer to him, but can't always decide what she wants from family. She h

This one was a little slow for me. I liked the first 2 books better than this one. I do, however, have some moments of the book that I liked. Possible spoilers...

I really liked how the author added the "Georgia" thoughts in the book. I thought that was an interesting way of keeping Georgia alive.

This line was thought provoking for me..."There's something magical about the way you can get to know someone better even after they're gone." I never really thought about this, until I read that line. I

Dakota's future looks bright, with the promise of an internship in the kitchen of the famous V hotel and the continued success of the shop under Peri's management.

I was blessed to get some solid reading time in on New Years! I blew through this book in a short 4 hours.

The third book in the Friday Night Knitting Club wrapped up those questions that lingered from book one and book two. I am a huge fan of not spoiling the story for anyone, so if you liked/loved the first two books this is a must read! If you have not read the series and are picking this book up first the story can be a stand alone.

Knit the Season has some flash backs that do not retell the

This is a book that deals mostly with change. Dakota is the central character. She is a student in culinary school but also part owner of a knitting shop that used to belong to her mother. Her plans are to create a cafe within the shop once she has graduated. To that end she is trying to get an internship with a hotel chef for over the holidays, only to find out that her father has made plans for the entire family to go visit her grandmother in Scotland. Dakota must decide which is more importan ...more
