Needles and Pearls (2010)

In this sequel to Divas Don't Knit, 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. This appears to be the season of new beginnings, with two weddings, a new relationship and a bundle of joy on the horizon. Jo's friend, Ellen, has just announced her engagement to Dirty Harry and Jo's Gran is getting married again to Reg. 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 when 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 be with. McNeil's humour shows through her writing with each turn of the page. (PP)

Divas Don't Knit (2007)

aka The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club

After her husband dies, Jo Mackenzie moves to a sleepy seaside town to run her grandmother's knitting shop. She struggles to adjust to her new life with her two boys, but is helped along by her Gran, her famous glamorous TV presenter best friend and her new-found Italian friend Connie. By setting up the 'stitch and bitch' knitting group and establishing an A-list actress as a customer of the shop, she makes knitting cool again and gets her life back on track. With a hint of romance, likeable characters and a lot of knitting, not only is the story a fairly good yarn, it will have you looking out your gran's old knitting needles before the end. (AB)
