The Woolly Hat Knitting Club Book Tour

Blooming Fiction, lifestyle blog, The Woolly Hat Knitting Club Book Tour

When Dee Blackthorn’s brother, JP, breaks both wrists not only is he in need of a helping hand – or two – but the knitting shop he owns can’t function. Sisterly duties take Dee away from her demanding job and she is unceremoniously fired amidst rumours of inappropriate behaviour. Dee is certain that her hot-shot nemesis, Ben, is behind it all but has no proof.
When Dee bumps into an old friend who is new mum to a premature baby she convinces JP to enlist his knitting pals to make lots of tiny woolly hats. Then Ben turns up denying involvement in Dee’s sacking and she ropes him into helping the knitting cause. 

But before long Dee’s good intentions backfire and she risks losing her friends, her family and Ben, who’s turned out to be not so bad after all…

I love a book that gets you involved in the plot from the word go! An emergency text message from a family member always sounds alarm bells but when it turns out that your brother has broken both wrists just by hanging bunting you just have to roll your eyes and imagine your own brother doing something just as daft.

The Woolly Hat Knitting Club is a charming story of family, love and community. There's an underlying story which is really quite sad, which I won't reveal ( no spoilers here ), but it plays a crucial part in the making of this fantastic read. 

Poor Dee is unduly sacked from her job, which is completely uncalled for in my opinion, and she spirals into a state of disarray and loss. Having previously been attached to her phone by the hip, there is suddenly oodles more time in her life. But what does she do with it? Her powers of persuasion come in handy as she ropes in various friends - ex enemies and family into helping a friend in need. But like any good story line it doesn't run smoothly.

The Woolly Hat Knitting Club is a thoroughly enjoyable read which is really hard to put down from the off set. The characters are completely believable and they suit the story perfectly. Admittedly you'll want to clip JP round the ear at some points but that's what brothers are for. 

This is a fab read for anyone who loves knitting or just loves a great book. If you enjoy this book, The Beachside Flower Stall may also be your cup of tea.
