    I adore these quirky characters

    Favorite Quotes: “I guess I'm what's called a Holitarian. I'm an equal opportunity holiday celebrator, especially if the holiday or special occasion involves cocktails and presents.” “I'm not the Lorax of Catholics. I don't speak for the trees of the faithful. That's why we have the Pope.” “The world might be ending. As such I'm here to rescue you and worship your body.” “I don't cause turmoil. I cause only happiness rainbows and shoeboxes of delight wherever I go.” “'Is this what you ladies do during knit night?' Greg frowned at the room, as though he were disappointed in us. 'You corrupt my wife with your drinking, gossiping, and double entrendre?'” “'My heart keeps discovering new ways to love you,' he whispered, like it was a secret. A magnificent, beautiful, perfect secret.” My Review: Penny Reid has mad skills – that is really all I need to express. But I will expand as it is expected of me for the sake of reviewing. Her humor is smart and several flights above merely clever. Her wit is sharp and her vast ability to bestow each of her highly intelligent characters with such unique quirks and profound outlooks on life is highly impressive. I adore her writing, and while the banter and dialogues were stellar, the inner musings and insights could meander into the somewhat painful tedium of circular logic, although I assume that was often the intent. I am relatively new to the Knitting in the City series but had no problem following the story-line and am highly interested in stepping backward and reading the previous installments, as well as any future works she ever plans to publish. Happily Ever Ninja went beyond the adventure in marriage premise I was expecting, and traversed into actual adventure with abductions, explosions, rescues, drama, espionage, ransom, terrorists, corrupt governments, psychopaths, spy rings, and a highly skilled knitting circle. I want to know these people but doubt I could keep up with them – either mentally or physically, although I can knit a mean scarf.

    Fiona is my hero!!

    I have adored this series since I first discovered it with Neanderthal Seeks Human. When I first read the book, I thought it was great and gave it 4 stars. If I had realized how much I was going to continue to contemplate and reminisce about the characters, I would have given it 5. Just saying. Janie, her knitting group, and the spin off Winston Brothers have landed near the top of my Must Read list and I can't help but get excited whenever a new book comes out. I admit to wondering how the author was going to handle creating a romance for a married couple. After all, we have know that Fiona was married from book one. I wondered if there would be a divorce or death, something to create an opportunity for a romance. Ha! Shows what little imagination I had. This story was so, so, so much more than I could have hoped for. I mean, it had all the ups and downs of the first blush of love crossed with the comfort and familiarity of the old married couple. Plus kicking butt! When the action started I couldn't read fast enough. Fiona is my hero!! If you're unsure because you haven't read anything by the author yet, you can totally grab Ninja at First Sight for Free right now. It's the story of how Greg and Fiona met and fell in love while in college. It won't give any spoilers to the other books in the series. And if it doesn't hook you and make you ready to read on, I wash my hands of you. *rubs hands together symbolically* Seriously. This was an outstanding addition to the series and I admit to staying up way to late to finish it the minute it hit my inbox. Let's just say, much caffeine was needed to function the next day and leave it at that. I am left wondering how Ms. Reid is going to top this story in her next installment. But I'm not truly worried, because I have faith that she will. 5 Ninja Stars for Happily Ever Ninja! Thanks to Indie Sage Promotions and the author for the opportunity to read and review this book.

    Mad About You meets Romancing the Stone

    How do you become a wife and mom without losing yourself in the process? That’s the question Fiona Archer is trying to answer. She is an absolute superwoman: wife to a husband who is away more than he is home, mother of two children who have needs and after-school activities, a household that needs to be run, and a part time job that requires her late nights to be spent over schematics. Does she have it all together? Not entirely, but she is trying her hardest to make it work. In romance novels, there are strong women, and then there are Penny Reid women. Penny writes heroines who are independent, freethinking, dependable, and real. However, she usually throws in a twist or quirk that makes them entirely unique. This is the case with Fiona. During the first half of the book, we see ‘mundane Fiona’ who is trying to survive the pitfalls of single motherhood while Greg is away. However, in the second half of the book, we learn all about Fiona’s kicka$$ ninja past. When called upon, it is like she is a totally different character—but she never forgets the worries and troubles of ‘everyday Fiona’. The dichotomy of her personality doesn’t seem like it should work, but it totally does. Happily Ever Ninja has heart, heat, and a surprising element of suspense. It takes a turn that I wasn’t expecting, but that is the catalyst for Ninja Fiona to be called into action. The suspense has a similar feel to a movie like Romancing the Stone: couple fighting amid the danger, trying to keep their desire to protect each other in check while trusting that they are going to survive. The whole thing was thrilling and action-packed. The only problem I had with the book was Greg himself. I felt like he didn’t give Fiona enough credit or actually listen to her for most of the book. I understand that he is fiercely loving and protective of Fiona, but it felt stifling and unnerving in parts. (If he were my husband, I would have used my ninja skills to duct tape him to a chair and torture him into submission. But that’s just me.) Happily Ever Ninja is an awesome book on it’s own, but it makes a great addition to the Knitting in the City series. The entire cast of characters really plays their part in this story, and their strengths truly shine. I’m definitely looking forward to more!

    Pudding with awesomesauce

    I love penny reid. I love her books and i love her characters. I wish i had a knittery, and i wish i lived in her books. I love how strong, awesome and autonomous her characters are. I love that the women are all developed individuals who have careers and interests and whose intelligence leaps out at you. I especially love this book. A love story with mature characters, and real relationship problems and resentments and development. But still hilarious. If it weren't wrong and creepy id say that we need to chain her to her laptop and make her churn out more books faster. But that would be creepy so i won't say it. But just quietly, i am thinking it....
