Sounds interesting but I think I'll have my wife read it first. :wink:

She has a couple of books by an author who's also a really good knitter, and knitting is often woven (ha ha) into the storylines.

I don't know how successful I'd be at working a hobby or vocation into a novel. "She looked at him in the glow of the overhead fluorescent lights, his muscular back glistening with sweat as he carefully fitted the custom-ground Crower roller camshaft into the Pontiac 400 block that had been align-bored and set up with main studs...knowing all along that he was the only main stud for her." :lol:

I checked out Island Apart on Amazon and found this in the preview:

"But Claire’s new friend has a terrible secret that threatens to drive them apart forever."

I'll bet he turns out to be a rib boiler. :wink: :lol:

Oh man I missed out. his book signing at 3rd Place Books in WFP is a 15-20 minute drive from me. Well I already have BBQ Bible signed by him and a few other items but that would of been cool. Plus he is super cool in person. Very friendly.
