What's In A Name 2015 Review: The Friday Night Knitting Club

The Friday Night Knitting ClubThe Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Georgia Walker is a single mom and a successful yarn shop owner in New York City. Her shop Walker and Daughter has a variety of customers. Some have become very good friends, some have been friends from the very beginning. As Georgia's shop continues to grow and her pre-teen daughter decides to become the next Food Network star, some of her more quirky customers gather to form an impromptu knitting club. Then the fun begins.

This is a story of female friendship of the awesome kind. Women of all walks of life, single, widowed, married and from various backgrounds, come together to share talk, snacks and even a bit of knitting.

Kate Jacobs develops characters so that you feel like you would know these women if they knocked on your front door. You really like them. Some you wish you could shake at times, but they are great friends and really support each other.

This is the first in a series of books and I am anxious to read the next ones.
