The book fest continues. I finished up Sissy’s choice for my reading pleasure yesterday afternoon. Maggie Sefton‘s first knitting mystery was outstanding!
I bet Sis was drawn to Carl. He’s the main canine character, and what a character he is. Sis and Carl are birds of a feather and would have the most marvelous time together. Carl also reminds me of the Rottweiler love of my life, my brother inlaw’s dearly departed big boy Simon. I wish I had a photo… what a big, lean-on-me love he was! (Simon. My BIL is a sweetie too, but he’s a hugger, not a leaner.)
Hem. Sorry. The book? Oh yeah. The characters really were people I felt I’ve known. Change a few details, and Kelly could have been a banker friend who loved softball. I’d go on and on making comparisons, but you get the point. Made me wish I did have time for a knitting group, because this group is TIGHT. All for one and one for all kinda’ friends, and they encircled Kelly whether she was looking for new friends or not.
Sis and I are both delighted to see that there are currently 7 more in the series. #2 is already waiting its turn on the Nook, but it won’t be long!
I’ve already started A Timely Vision, which only makes me worry more about what Earl and his string of blow-hard pals are going to do to my beloved Outer Banks. The main character happens to be the female mayor of Duck, a part of OBX we know well.
I can’t find photos – I know I took them! – of the Knight on a training fire with the Duck Fire Department… Anyway, take my word for it; we know Duck. I try to allow writers their poetic license, but I’ve already been warned by another OBX regular that there is a detail or two out of place. I’m not going to let that bother me though.
How ’bout you? Does it disturb your reading pleasure if the setting is one you know well enough to know that a few things just aren’t right? Any books I need to read, set in a spot near and dear to your heart?
