A Good Yarn follows on from The Shop on Blossom Street and I really liked both these books. Light, entertaining reads with a story and characters you can connect with without having to think too much; the perfect comfort read for recovering from surgery :-)

If you're a stickler for reading a series in order, don't panic, the first chapter of A Good Yarn recaps The Shop on Blossom Street almost in its entirety (slight exaggeration, but you get the idea.) The original characters/customers from book one; Alix, Jacqueline & Carol make an appearance in A Good Yarn and I loved that continuity. In this installment Lydia's new sock knitting class brings in another 3 regular customers, Elise, Bethanne & Courtney and once again I found myself drawn in to the ordinary every day lives of this diverse group of women who become the unlikeliest of friends.

If you like the premise of ordinary women bonding, sharing, and establishing lasting friendships through a common interest in knitting, then this may be a series for you. At another time I may not have enjoyed this book as much as I did but right now it was exactly what I needed, heart warming, feel-good and unchallenging. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.
