I’m finally getting around to reading the last of the three books in this series. I loved the first two, and I knew I’d love the last, but I wanted to wait until closer to “the season” to read it.
I don’t know what it is about these books that I love, honestly. Normally, I don’t go for this kind of cutesy, tug-on-your-heartstrings type of fiction, but maybe its the knitting? (Note that my copy of this book is a different cover than the one above, but I love the knitted cupcakes, so I picked that photo instead.) Maybe its the now 20-year-old Dakota’s love of baking and knitting? Maybe its just one of those feel-good books that you can’t put down and just gets to you.
All reasoning aside, this was a great, if not surprising, end to the series. I say “end” because I know there are no more books, but there easily could be. All of the characters were left in happy yet not necessarily resolved places. While the other books focused on all of the characters equally, this one was far more centered around Dakota, whose life was the one most in flux when the last book ended.
Even though there weren’t any big surprises or shocking plot twists, this was still a great read. Kind of like knitting – basic, easy, fun, and fulfilling.
(The cutsey-ness is apparently contagious.)
