Divas don't Knit by Gil McNeil

This is what is written at the front of the book, so I shan't be giving anything away:

Jo Mackenzie needs a new start. Newly widowed with two young sons and a perilous bank balance, she has to leave London to take over her grandmother's wool shop. Broadgate Bay is the kind of Kentish seaside town where the tide went out a long time ago and the dusty old shop is full of peach four-ply. Marmalade mohair, an A-list actress moving into the local mansion and s 'Stitch and bitch' group addicted to cake will help, but it's not going to be easy....

I read the review in a knitting magazine, and then searched the on-line library catalogue, and hey presto there were copies available. However believe it or not, if you do all the work yourself and order on line, there is a £1 charge, but if you go into the library, ask the Librarian, who then does the search and the ordering taking about five minutes, there is no charge! The flip side is that you can end up as I did with a large print version. Quite good really as I could have read and knitted at the same time! However I enjoyed reading so much, I had to put the needles down.
