Summary

A quirky lesbian romance about love never being quite where you expect.  

Anna's life's in a bit of a rut. As a teacher with two great kids and a boyfriend, she seems to have it all. Except...she's bored as hell. Perhaps a new hobby's in order? Something...crafty? 

Divorced mother and veteran Ollie has been through the wars, emotionally and physically. To relax, she runs a quirky crochet class in her London craft shop. She can't help but notice the attractive, feisty new student. A shame Anna's straight as an arrow.   

But somewhere between the chain stitches, doubles, and trebles, Ollie and Anna form a powerful connection they never expected.  

Contains mature themes.

Nice one

Hooked on You is a really lovely novel.
It's not the most exciting book, but that doesn't mean that it is boring in any way, I still read through it fairly quick. The characters work through some very existential things, so the pace fits the story.

It is gentle and nice and very british. The book delivers on exactly what the blurb promises - and I appreciate that.

Pleasantly British

This was a good book for older women like me, not many books are for mature and about mature women, so this was a pleasant surprise. loved the characters the story line.
Narration was great

Perfectly paced romance

The narration was wonderful as was the story to create a perfectly paced romance. I appreciated that the two characters were older women both experiencing new love. Highly recommend!

A Terrific Story

Wonderful characters and narration. Two women who have been dealt a blow meet in a yarn shop. Ollie is a veteran after a terrible injury in Afghanistan. Now estranged from her family she runs a craft business. Annie is a teacher with great kids but I bored. Ollie runs a crochet class and enjoys the new student. A great book for older women.

Too Predictable

The story line was mediocre, predictable and left a lot to be desired. The narrator was ok but not great. Overall I gave the book 2 stars because at least it had a "happy" ending.
