Having read the previous knitting in the city books, I was really looking forward to Fiona and Greg’s story. And overall it didn’t disappoint. Penny Reid started the book by making me chuckle out loud when Fiona was discussing her husband Greg’s parenting techniques, like by teaching their son and daughter to respond to questions they didn’t like by saying:
“That sounds like something Hitler would say”
odd little remarks like these were sprinkled throughout the story and just made it more light-hearted and fun to read (classic Penny Reid).
The story overall was well paced and added the right amount of drama to stop it being a snooze fest. One thing that DID annoy me (and pretty much stooped it from being five stars) was how selfish Greg could be. I mean I understand he has the skill to help other people less fortunate but at some point he had to realise that he had his family depending on him emotionally. While his reasons sounded adequate I couldn’t help but be annoyed by how he basically abandoned his family because strangers across the globe needed him.
Another thing I thought was lacking was more flashbacks to their past together. I LOVED their prequel and how they met and was seriously looking forward to how they became such a stable and loving couple so it was kind of disappointing there wasn’t much of that. Because of these it will be a four star read from me and overall it was yet another great book and I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants some light-hearted story with just the right amount of drama and action!
