Knitting Under The Influence
Author: Claire LaZebnik
Knitting Under The Influence by Claire LaZebnik tells the story of three best friends who get together every Sunday morning to knit and gossip.
The fabulous Kathleen has just moved out of her home where she lived with her famous actress sisters. She is on her own for the first time and thinks that finding a man will help her get her life on track; however, she needs to find a man with money to help her keep up the lifestyle she is used to living.
Lucy, a scientist is dating a man, but after her friends meet him, she wonders if he is really the right one for her. She notices his snappy attitude and finds herself drifting apart from him. Then, she begins to notice how sexy and nice her lab partner is…
Sari helps autistic children for a living and when Jason, the hottest and most sought after guy from her high school brings his son Zach in to see her, Sari isn’t sure if she can handle this client.
Each week, these three women get together, munch on bagels, knit and talk about their latest man troubles. Their stories intertwine and connect which makes the book that much more exciting to read.
I loved this book and I loved all of the characters. I especially related to Sari, for some reason. Her down to earth personality most resonated with me. The friendship between the three women is so realistic and enjoyable. It made me wish I had a group of friends who had a Sunday knitting circle!
All of the male characters provided a different dynamic to the story and I enjoyed the drama that came along with each side story.
This was definitely an enjoyable read that I could not put down.
