Tight Knit by Shaya Crabtree
Lara Spellmeyer comes back home after spending a few years away, building her ‘’Cat sweater empire’’.
When her life comes tumbling down, she finds herself at her starting point, dealing with her Grand-mother and her health issues while trying to save a little bit of what is let from her company. When everything is going wrong, the last thing one would want is an invasive ex, in this case, Paige Daley, trying to write an article about all that is going wrong in your life. But life has a way of surprising even the most hardened heart.
I’m not sure if I’ve read from Shaya Crabtree before since her previous books remind me a lot of a fanfiction I’ve read before. If it’s the case, then her writing is still as awesome as it was. If not, then, I am more than happy that I got the chance to read and review this book and learn about this new author.
As much as I loved the story, it felt like Lara was running after all the crap that was going on in her life. At some point, she was playing the victim so much it was irritating. I did love Paige’s personality. She doesn’t shy away when people ask her to, and it was refreshing.
Overall the book was good, but at some point, I found it was missing something to hook me to the story. I’m guessing Lara’s persona did that, even if there were a few moments I really loved it the book, but they were not enough for me to give it 5 stars or read it all in a night. I still recommend reading it, because it was a nice read. I look forward to reading more from the same author.
