The Sweetgum Ladies Are Back

I love the Sweetgum Ladies. They're sassy and fun. There's Maria Munden who is trying to make a living with her deceased father's Five and Dime Store, but the new Wal-Mart is cutting into her business. Camile St. Clair has recently lost her mother and she's struggling to keep their business, Maxine's Dress Shop going. An old flame is back in town and she doesn't know how to deal with that. Eugenie Carson has married the Reverend Paul Carson, but some of the church members don't like her. And Esther Jacksoe has been a social light in the town, but now her husband has died, leaving her with a mountain of debts. Can the Ladies work their way through their problems, staying true to what they believe, and being there for each other? This book is a visit with well-loved firends. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Cute and sweet

I loved this book. I liked the characters in the story...the loving ladies of Sweetgum, Tennessee, are a group anyone would want to have in their town and to be a part of their "society." The diverse group complemented each other even though there were age differences...I really enjoyed their book club and how they used knitting along with the book choices. All the trials and tribulations and joys of these women will keep your interest. The bonding between the women made me glad I am a woman...we do have a special way of helping each other. It reminded me of the book THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS, but with a different theme of course. I hope whoever reads it enjoys the book as I did...AND....the poignant question to ask: How do you define love? You have to read the book to understand this comment. It was a pleasurable read. (

Sweet Read

Not having read the first book in the series, The Sweetgum Ladies Knit Lit Society, the book started a little slow for me. I had to meet the characters in the first few chapters. I found that reading the first book was not necessary to enjoy this one. The author does a wonderful job describing the characters so that you feel they are very real and could possibly live in your very own small town. I was drawn into their lives and eagerly turning the pages to learn what was going to happen next. I love romance stories and this book had plenty of romance to keep me satisfied. Early on in the book the ladies give their definitions of love during a meeting of the Lit Society. Little do they know that their concepts of love and being loved are to be tested. Although there are some loose ends at the end of the book, I'm assuming that we will learn more about what happens to the Sweetgum Ladies in Pattillo's next installment of the series. I enjoyed this book and will be looking for it's follow-up.

Fun Read

This was a welcome addition to the series. "Knit for Love" is entertaining and enlightening. What is really fun is that they not only turn to each other for advice on their relationships, but to romance novels for guidance as well. It was a real kick.
