All women need their own simple pleasures....
Jean and Rosie are involved in a new adventure together-one they're both excited about - and they'll introduce you to some interesting characters along the way.
While Jean is also busy dealing with numerous man issues, her best friend, Rosie, has plenty of issues of her own: she's facing empty nest syndrome, her husband is recovering from heart surgery, and she's finally prepared to solve a deep, dark secret from her past. Then, there's the unexpected news that could shatter her optimism and faith.
In Woolen Bikinis is an engaging story about the unpredictable twists and turns that can happen in any woman's life, as well as a strong friendship, one Jean and Rosie are fortunate to have, that can help carry one through.
It's also about simple pleasures, plenty of them (like woolen bikinis). Be prepared to be delighted!

The warmth of a great friendship
friendship - eventful, compassionate
Rosie. Sweet and even somewhat childish, at the same time she has great depths of wisdom and courage.
Carolyn Power's performance is simply remarkable. She is a one woman acting troupe! Each character has his or her own voice so that you feel you really know these people well. At the same time you forget that Carolyn is even there, because she immerses you in the story. Carolyn's voice is full of compassion and warmth; she is like a wonderful friend and companion and because of that she is able to convey the specialness of the great friendship between Jean and Rosie. I must say that having finished this second volume of the series, and having enjoyed two volumes of the Jean and Rosie series, I really miss the story and Carolyn's wonderful voice. Can't wait for the third installment!
At times this book made me cry and often it made me laugh. It is serious yet often funny.
I love the store that the two friends have created - knitting and books! This friendship is deep on so many levels, yet each friend has her own individual personality and they sometimes disagree. But with this store they have created something wonderful together. The store brings in their families, their friends, and even a very special surprise - a very important surprise - for Rosie! But I won't give it away.
