Well. This was just as lovely as A Good Year for Roses, but with the charming addition of knitting. Let’s see if it hits all the cozy elements, shall we?
the main character: Jo, a relatable mum
the children: 2 charming children who are not perfect, but adorably naughty
the best friend: famous television personality, rich, impeccable fashion sense, loves to shop, string of boyfriends
the British setting: a seaside town
the sexy interest: a famous photographer
the added interesting character: a world famous A-list movie star who befriends Jo
the father/husband: conveniently dead after declaring he wanted a divorce
the cozy factor: Jo has inherited a knitting/wool shop, which is also what prompts her to move to the seaside town and gives her a fresh start in her life.
Nothing very dramatic happens, there is literally no suspense, and it is perfect because of it. It is like a long cup of tea, a hot bath, or whatever comfortable relaxing thing soothes you. I cannot wait to read the others in this series.
