Penny Reid easily became an auto-buy author for me as soon as read her serial, Elements of Chemistry. I loved the story so much that I reach for it time and time again when I’m in need of a good romance. But I soon found other books of hers that are phenomenally good. Knitting in the City is one of those series that I’ve grown to love. The characters are well-rounded; the dialogues are off the charts witty, and the romances are simply heart-fatteningly good. Bonus: every single one of the books are hilarious!
So while I was on an extended leave from the blog, and while I suffered from the worst case of reading slump, Penny Reid was my saviour. I’ve read the majority of the books in this series. But during my time off, I discovered these other books that I did not know existed.
I’m such a huge fan of this series. I can’t believe I ever stopped following the books. I love Janie & Quinn. They’re a match made in heaven. Janie’s practicality and intelligence play evenly with Quinn’s stoicism and wit. This follows the trials and tribulations of their engagement and subsequent marriage. Hilarity and hijinx ensue.
Ack. Greg & Fiona’s beginnings. My heart. <3 If you’ve been following this series, you’d know that Fiona is an ex-CIA operative who now manages their home without her husband Greg. And it’s because of his job. I fell in love with the way they kind of tried to stay away from each other to no avail. Greg is hilariously British. He’s sarcastic and witty. Fiona is serious and intelligent. I love these two!
Rounding up this series is book #7 to Penny Reid’s Knitting in the City series. I do believe this is the last book, and it’s the story of Dan the Security Man and Kate, the heiress in hiding. I also love this story even though at times, I wanted to kill a few people. Lol. Regardless, Dan and Kate made it worth my while. I love the epilogue. I love seeing their respective kids grow up. I do hope we’ll read their stories in the future.
This is a series of stories featuring Kate and Dan the Security Man. I love seeing their beginnings and the reason for why they were apart for most of the Knitting story line. This is a preamble to book #7, so to speak. It’s a lovely story between Kate and Dan – their palpable attraction even through their time apart. They truly struggled and it’s all because of a miscommunication between them. Oh horrors of horrors.
