Romance Contemporary | Contemporary Chick Lit

Juliet Weston, a widow for 11 months now, loved her husband deeply -- he was much older than her, a wealthy, distinguished military general. He had sheltered and provided for her, maybe more than she wanted or needed. Now that he's gone, his most trusted soldier, Noah Smith, is fulfilling a promise to the general to continue taking care of Juliet.

After the negative press surrounding the general's death, protecting his widow becomes even more important to Noah, especially since he feels guilty about his own fascination with the beautiful Juliet. As Juliet emerges from her grief, she's distraught to find her sexual desires awakening and her attraction to the enlisted man in her guest house growing stronger. Juliet's own guilt about the day of the general's death prevents her from pursuing Noah, until her careful facade is torn apart and she comes unraveled. Can Noah help Juliet knit together a new life?

In this second book in the Malibu and Ewe series, the romance of Juliet and Noah is intertwined with the story of three half-sisters who share a sperm-donor father and meet through a knitting shop. Christie Ridgway weaves the stories together brilliantly, keeping each sister relevant while focusing on the developing romance of her main characters. The first book in this series, HOW TO KNIT A WILD BIKINI, introduced the romance of chef Nikki and magazine mogul and playboy Jay. The forthcoming third book promises to detail the relationship between knitting shop owner Cassandra and her troubled neighbor and fellow businessman Gabe. I can't wait for the third book, so I can find out more about Gabe's past and his potential future with Cassandra. Ms. Ridgway's novels are humorously written, touch on serious life and family issues, and are a delight to read. Her storytelling is fresh and original and the only thing that could make these books better would be a free knitting pattern at the back of each the book.
