Publishers Weekly
Wilde (All of Me) pays homage to The Gilmore Girls in this lighthearted romance. The small town of Twilight, Tex., is known for reuniting high school sweethearts, and when girl-next-door Flynn MacGregor finally agrees to marry straitlaced sheriff Beau Trainer, she thinks she’s settling down with her first love. Then Flynn’s old flame Jesse Calloway rolls in, fresh from 10 years in prison, and rekindles “chemistry that time and circumstances had not erased.” As Flynn struggles to stop mothering everyone around her, Jesse helps her realize her highly controlled life has not been so different from his in prison. Full of colorful characters, pleasant descriptions and sexual tension, this romance is slow to get started and overloaded with campy Southern charm, but once it gains momentum it’s as satisfying as a glass of lemonade on a hot day. (Dec.)

Sweethearts' Knitting Club 3.7 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 182 reviews.

Interesting characters, but I was surprised at the explicit sex which none of the reviews mentioned. Some indication of the sexual descriptions would have kept me from buying this book that gained nothing from all the sexual descriptions.

The story line was interesting and had a good flow. I was so disappointed by the graphic descriptions of sexual scenes as I would never buy or read a book knowing those were included. Not expected when you select a book about a knitting club. Wish there was a way to identify that sort of content. Felt like I was misled by the title/grouping. Disgusting.

As a romance it was a nice read, although Jessie had more patience with Flynn than I would have. I just want my fellow knitters to know that it really isn't about the knitting. Knitting is more used as the prime example of Flynn living her life for others instead of herself.

I've never had the urge to write a review, but with this book I felt the need. The plot is trivial and the sex is similar to a cheap sex novel. It's full of cliches and sexual innuendoes Save your time and money.

After reading 40 pages in this book I finally admit defeat. The author has introduced nearly a dozen characters and everyone of them has a cloud hanging over their head. And point of fact none of the characters are particularly likable. The lead character Flynn is just a bit more likable than the rest, poor tortured soul that she is. There doesn't seem to be one person in this whole make believe town that is happy. Seriously, I read to be entertained and this book is far from that. Also a bit of language here and there which I ignored until the F bomb was dropped. Believe it or not some of us do not use this word and find it objectionable in our entertainment. Not a light hearted story. I'm deleting this one.

I too was disappointed by the explicit sex!! Totally unnecessary. The story line was cute but some of the writing seemed quite childish. Not sure if I want to read any more of Lori's books now.

I have been in a reading frenzy the past week and I must say that this book is the best yet! If you loved the show, "Gilmore Girls" then this book is a must. :)

This story was a real page turner. Jesse was delicious, Flynn so understanable. I can't wait for the second book in the series.

Utterly predictable. Far-fetched and saccharine.

I really enjoy books that show women supporting others thru thick and thin. This is one of the storys you can sit and read and just feel good knowing that people still support each other.

I was so disappointed at the end! What happened to Beau at the end? The author should have told us what punishment he and his father should have gotten for planting false evidence on jesse. The ending left me hanging!

I didn't appreciate the explicit sex portions.  The story was nice without it.  The  picture was misleading.

Predictable plot but a quick beach read or easy read for those sleepless nights. Biggest complaint is the overuse of the word "splayed." Use a thesaurus!

I had already read this book and read it for the second time. Main female character was irritating -needed a knock up beside the head. Pornoghraphic scenes were not necessary and i had to skip several pages.
