The title The Sweethearts Knitting Club sets the tone for one of the sweetest books Iíve ever read! This is a story about true love conquering all, righting past wrongs, and good always winning over evil, and most importantly about happy ever after.
Pretty Flynn, has been denying herself a life and dreams, for years. She gave up on her desires when her mother got sick with ALS. Since then sheís been handling all her families troubles; raising her brothers and sisters; and keeping her father sober. During this time, sheís dreamed about the boy who got away, or more accurately, the boy who got locked up, Jesse. All this while having an on/again off/again relationship with the towns sheriff, AKA, the perfect man! Yet, Flynn canít seem to feel the same way about her now fiancť, Beau that she does about Jesse. All this while trying to fulfill her motherís dying wish, and open a knitting store, and harboring a life changing secret!
Jesse comes back to town, intent on two things; having Flynn as his own, and righting the wrong that sent him to prison 10 years ago. Yet, it seems that Jesse canít escape his past, and things start happening to this perfect town. Can Flynn and Jesse get through it together, or will the secrets of the past creep up and break them apart?
What follows is a beautifully written book about the small town life. Itís ripe with mystery, intrigue, past secrets, heartbreak, and love. What a better way to spend the cold winter nights, than reading this feel good book?
What I loved about this book was the simplicity with which it was written. Its characters were so rich and honest that there is no fluff; it just simply focuses on the matter of the heart between the two main characters. I love that the secondary characters were so richly developed; I would love to see a series of these books. This is the first Lori Wilde book that Iíve read, but it certainly wonít be the last! This book focused on some of my favorite themes: trust, love, family, and forgiveness. I certainly hope you all enjoy this book as much as I did.
