Overview

Knit one . . . It's been a busy few years since Jo Mackenzie lost her husband. Life has brought adventure, surprises, unexpected pleasures, and, of course, lots of knitting. Jo's seaside yarn shop, with a brand new café, has taken off, keeping her busier than ever. And being a single mum to two boys and headstrong toddler Pearl is just as exhausting and enchanting as she thought it would be. On top of all that, celebrity diva Grace has a secret; Jo's firecracker best friend Ellen is launching a new television series; and lovable but hapless Martin continues his oft misguided attempts to woo Jo. Just when Jo thinks she has about all she can handle, Daniel, Pearl's globe-trotting dad, turns up out of the blue . . .

Purl one . . . But with a little help from her friends, and her beloved Gran, Jo is building a new life for herself by the sea, stitch by stitch. Warm and witty, Knit One Pearl One will delight new readers to the Beach Street series and give the legions of existing fans a chance to visit the British seaside again, without having to worry about the weather.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this follow-up to Needles and Pearls, McNeil returns to Jo Mackenzie’s lively knitting store in Broadgate, England. Now a mother to three children (Archie, Jack, and toddler Pearl) with different fathers, Jo is pursuing a romancewith a local carpenter, Martin, but also carrying secrets: local superstar Grace is pregnant and Jo isn’t sure about her feelings for Martin. When Pearl’s father—dashing photographer Daniel—reappears, Jo allows herself and the kids to be whisked away on a vacation, and must decide what she really wants out of her relationships with each man. Readers curious about Jo’s antics since the last installment of the Beach Street series will find that McNeil hits the ground running. However, the ground merely focuses on the harried world of single parenthood and owning a business. The plot proceeds slowly, and little changes for Jo or the other characters. Readers who already have a relationship with the characters might not mind; new readers may feel underwhelmed. (Jan.)

    Highly recommend

    Loved all three of the Jo Mackenzie series - hope they continue. Very pleasant light, fun reading. However, a warning, you will be laughing out loud (also smiling a lot) which can be embarrassing when on pubic transport.

    Another Winner!!!!!!!!

    I laughed and cried and laughed again. "Ellen is giving me her get me away from this nutter look, I think serves you right." is one of many funny lines in the book. I really wish I could dive into this book and move their. I reall do wish Ellen were my best friend and Gran was my Grand Monther. Alright I'm already for the next installment of Jo Mackenzie's Life. Please write it soon.

    Disappointing

    I really enjoyed her first two books, but this one left me flat. Very predictable. Almost every plot line was a minimally varied repeat from her other books. Her characters were so alive in those and here they are boring. Very disappointed.

    Loved It!!

    This book fits in perfectly with the rest of the series. I love the storyline, but I'm not sure about her relationship with Martin. You know it's there. You know that they are involved, but you don't see much of it.

    Can't wait for the fourth book to come out!!

    Entertaining....

    .....except for the language around children. Too much kids' dialog. I keep reading because of the story line. Will there be another book in this series???
