Very enjoyable read. Did want to abandon regular duties and just read, read, read! Nicely plotted, great characters, and a variety of settings held my interest.

Knit in Comfort was a quick, interesting read. Elizabeth, a young women from New York, travels to Comfort, North Carolina based on a dream in which she thinks her grandma tells her too. There she meets Megan - a wife and mother from who she rents a room. Elizabeth views Megan's life as perfect and wonderful and the dream life she wants. However, Elizabeth doesn't realize that Megan, like everyone, is not in fact living a fairy tale and that looks can be deceiving. But what brings them together - along with some other women in town - is knitting. And through knitting, they are able to work through some of the issues they are facing. While learning about Megan and Elizabeth and the women in Comfort, Sharpe also draws us in with the story of Gillian and Fiona, which takes place in the early 1900's on the Shetland Island. Fiona is a relative of Megan's and so we learn part of Megan's family's history as we learn about Megan. As a knitter I was quite drawn to the talk of knitting - and the mention of the gorgeous lace knitting that Megan (and her family) does. I'm not sure what drew me in more - thinking about the beautiful lace knitting they referred to or the story honestly. I wished more than once this was a picture book or a movie or something similar. I'm positive the description of the lace knitting just didn't do it justice at all!

I truly enjoyed this book. Bit by bit secrets were revealed. Who would have thought? I became attached to the characters and I am disappointed that a sequel hasn’t been written. Would love to see where this story could go. I see a story for each of these ladies. Love this book and was disappointed when it ended!

Loved this story. I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters in this book. It starts out a little slow, but keep reading. It gets so much better. As the story progresses, you see the main character awakening and becoming her own person. Really, really hated to finish this book - wanted their stories to continue.
