Book Review - The Woolly Hat Knitting Club by Poppy Dolan

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Dee's brother JP owns a knitting shop and when he breaks both of his wrists Dee rushes over to her old hometown Fenwild to help him out. Unfortunately because of her sudden absence, which coincidentally coincides with a nasty rumor, she loses her job. She is trying not to despair and is now able to spend some extra time helping JP with his shop. When Dee runs into her old friend Becky, who just had a premature baby, she wants to do something. To help her out she and JP start a knitting project to get tiny hats for Becky's baby. This is such a success that soon they're being made for other small babies as well. Will this new project give Dee hope again for the future?

Dee's ex colleague Ben doesn't stop trying to get in touch with her. Dee doesn't want to have anything to do with him, but he's persistent. He declines all involvement in the problems she ran into at work. To convince her he even helps JP with his knitting projects. Is Ben the horrible man Dee always thought he was or is he actually kindhearted and has she misjudged him? If so, what does that mean for their future relationship?

The Woolly Hat Knitting Club is a fun and heartwarming story. Dee is a kind and caring woman who does everything to protect the people she loves. However, she doesn't always read situations very well and she often messes things up because of it. She regularly ends up being misunderstood and that leads to a lot of trouble, which is a great basis for a story. I couldn't wait to find out if she'd be able to sort it out and couldn't put The Woolly Hat Knitting Club down because of it.

The Woolly Hat Knitting Club has such a wonderful setting, a knitting shop. Poppy Dolan makes JP's pride and joy come to life incredibly well. JP lives for his work and his passion is both charming and catchy. I really enjoyed reading about his woolly hat project and thought it was sweet and thoughtful. It's also excellently suits the atmosphere of the story, The Woolly Hat Knitting Club is adorable and cheerful and it put a big smile on my face. It's an entertaining, endearing and romantic book.
