Reading is something that I enjoy year round; however, as the weather turns cool I find myself looking forward to the times when I can “hibernate” with a good book & an unending mug of coffee or tea. Just in time for these cooler times, Kate Jacobs is bringing out two books on November 3rd.
The first book was actually released last year and is now coming to paperback. The women of The Friday Night Knitting Club are back with more tales of friendship in Knit Two.
The first time I met Kate, we talked about the characters of FNKC and I asked if she had any plans for future stories about them. Her response was non committal. I told her then that I would enjoy continuing to read more about these women; however, that first book also did leave me satisfied with a complete story. What a treat it was last year to receive my advance copy of Knit Two and return to the world of these women.
This novel picks up 5 years after the end of the first book. As in real life, reading this story was just like “picking up where you left off” with friends that you haven’t been in touch with in a while. Knit Two is filled with new loves, new babies, new adventures – including Italian vacations – and more. As I mentioned to a friend, this was just a charming read of good fiction.
To celebrate the paperback release of Knit Two, Kate’s publisher has provided me with 2 copies of the book to share with you. So, let’s have a contest! Between now and November 3rd, leave a comment on this post. In keeping with the themes of the book, please share a favorite memory from a vacation or from your own “knitting circle” or other close circle of friends.
Also coming out on November 3rd is a holiday tale with the Friday Night Knitting Club women in Knit the Season. Stay tuned next week for a review of this delightful holiday tale and another contest.
Kate is out on tour to promote her books – if she’s coming to your city, I’d highly recommend taking time out from your schedule to go to a reading.
