Publishers WeeklySharpe makes her fiction debut with a ho-hum knitting novel. Elizabeth flees New York City and her chef boyfriend, Dominique, because she feels something is missing in her life. She ends up in the small town of Comfort, N.C., where she meets a group of knitters, and finds a room in the home of Megan, who seems possessed of an idyllic marriage to salesman husband Stanley. Soon, though, Elizabeth realizes that not everything is as it seems and she has a lot of difficult decisions to make about her own future. Sharpe's offering is safe and predictable: the sleepy Southern town with its just-under-the-surface troubles is a comfortable cliché, the characters exhibit the requisite amount of quaint quirk, and the mix of self-discovery and crafts is equally pedestrian. This is going to have a tough time making a mark in an oversaturated genre.
