It's been a busy few years since Jo Mackenzie lost her husband. Life has brought adventure, surprises, unexpected pleasures, and, of course, lots of knitting. Jo's seaside yarn shop, with a brand new café, has taken off, keeping her busier than ever. And being a single mum to two boys and headstrong toddler Pearl is just as exhausting and enchanting as she thought it would be.
On top of all that, celebrity diva Grace has a secret, Jo's firecracker best friend Ellen is launching a new television series, and lovable but hapless Martin continues his oft-misguided attempts to woo Jo. Just when Jo thinks she has about all she can handle, Daniel, Pearl's globe-trotting dad, turns up out of the blue.... But with a little help from her friends, and her beloved Gran, Jo is building a new life for herself by the sea, stitch by stitch.

I love British humor and this book really delivered.
The story is told first-person by the main character,Jo. She is funny and honest. Her kids drive her crazy but she can't imagine life without them.
The narrator did a fabulous job!
The books ensemble of characters really work well. They are all well written and make a great read. I want to go to one of the many picnics or parties they are always having and meet them all!
I got this book for the knitting aspect of it. But I loved it because of its warmth and humor.
"A very Gentle book."
The idea of knitted cup cakes and other things is very amusing, gets the imagination going. I enjoyed this book although nothing really happened. Good listen to relax with and not tax the brain!! I love books read by Jilly Bond, she is excellent, and one narrator who pronounces words correctly, she has excellent inflections, I often get books just for her as the reader.
