As good as the first book

I absolutely loved Alix from book one, and interesting as the new characters are, none appeals me like Alix. She and the other characters from book one are back as guests in book two, but we have three new main characters.

Elise is a retired librarian, and struggling to fill the hours. Bethanne is struggling with her recent divorce and teenaged daughter. Courtney is struggling with her weight and being the new girl in town. And Lydia and her family have a new set of problems.

We know from the beginning that they will all find their solutions in each other and in knitting, but it's nice to travel the journey with them.
