Gil McNeil - Knit ​One Pearl One
It's ​been a busy few years since Jo Mackenzie lost her husband. Life has brought adventure, surprises, unexpected pleasures and, of course, lots of knitting. Jo's seaside yarn shop, with a brand-new cafe, has taken off, keeping her busier than ever. And being a single mum to two boys and a headstrong toddler, Pearl, is just as exhausting and enchanting as she thought it would be. On top of all that, celebrity diva Grace has a secret, Jo's firecracker best friend, Ellen, is launching a new television series, and lovable but hapless Martin continues his oft-misguided attempts to woo Jo. Just when Jo thinks she has about all she can handle, Daniel, Pearl's globe-trotting dad, turns up out of the blue... With a little help from her friends and her beloved Gran, Jo is building a new life for herself by the sea, stitch by stitch. Warm and witty, Knit One Pearl One will delight new readers to the Beach Street series and give the legions of existing fans a chance to visit the British seaside again, without having to worry about the weather.

Gil McNeil - Divas ​Don't Knit
Jo ​Mackenzie needs a kickstart to her dull life. Despite having two energetic young sons to cope with, everyday existence has become boring and stale, and relations with her husband are not good. When given the opportunity, Jo absolutely jumps at the chance to take over her Gran's wool shop in a small, seaside town. Of course, things are not going to be easy -- strife and conflict are the source of good comedy (and there are some wonderful and memorable moments here)! Unlikely though it might be, an A-list actress moves into the local mansion -- and that is always going to cause a fuss in such a small place. Add to that the fact that the local knitting group seem to like cake more than making stuff and you've got more than enough elements to make for a lovely, warm, uplifiting read.

Gil McNeil - Needles ​and Pearls
A ​year after her husband's death, Jo Mackenzie is finally starting to get the hang of being a single parent. The boys are thriving in their new seaside home, the wool shop is starting to do well and despite two weddings, an in-school knitting project and Trevor the Wonder Dog coming to stay, she's just about keeping her head above water. But boys, babies and best friends certainly make life a lot more interesting. Can Jo cope when things get really complicated? Because if knitting truly does keep you sane when your life starts to unravel then it looks like Jo is going to need much bigger needles

Gil McNeil - The ​Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club
When ​her husband dies in a car crash–not long after announcing he wants a divorce–Jo Mackenzie packs up her two rowdy boys and moves from London to a dilapidated villa in her seaside hometown. There, she takes over her beloved Gran's knitting shop–a quaint but out-of-date store in desperate need of a facelift. After a rough beginning, Jo soon finds comfort in a „Stitch and Bitch” group; a collection of quirky, lively women who share their stories, and their addiction to cake, with warmth and humor. As Jo starts to get the hang of single-parent life in a small town, she relies on her knitting group for support. The women meet every week at the shop on Beach Street and trade gossip and advice as freely as they do a new stitch. But when a new man enters Jo's life, and an A-list actress moves into the local mansion, the knitting club has even more trouble confining the conversation to knit one, purl two. The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club is an uplifting, winning tale about the healing power of friendship and new beginnings. It's a charming novel that will delight all passionate knitters–and win over befuddled, would-be knitters, too.

Gil McNeil - A ​dívák nem kötnek
Jo ​Mackenzie kénytelen új életet kezdeni. Miután fiatalon megözvegyül, két kisfiával és megcsappant bankszámlájával otthagyja Londont, hogy átvegye nagymamája vidéki fonalboltját. Zuhogó esőben érkeznek Broadgate Baybe, amely az a fajta kenti tengerparti kisváros, ahol régóta megállt az élet, és a poros, régi bolt tele van ódivatú áruval. A narancslekvár színű moher, a helyi kúriába beköltöző ünnepelt színésznő és egy rendhagyó terápiás csoport segít túlélni a mindennapokat, de az élet már csak olyan, mint a kötés: a sima után jön a fordított... Kisvárosi intrikák, hírességek, románc és egy kétgyerekes anya küzdelme a fennmaradásért és boldogságért Gil McNeil szórakoztató és szívmelengető regényében.
