Présentation de l'éditeur

Sequel to Knitter in His Natural Habitat
A Granby Knitting Novel

After three years of waiting for “rabbit” Jeremy to commit to a life in Granby—and a life together—Aiden Rhodes was appalled when Jeremy sustained a nearly fatal beating to keep a friend out of harm's way. How could Aiden’s bunny put himself in danger like that?

Aiden needs to get over himself, because Jeremy has a long road to recovery, and he's going to need Aiden's promise of love every step of the way. Jeremy has new scars on his face and body to deal with, and his heart can’t afford any more wounds.

When their friend’s baby needs some special care, the two men find common ground to firm up their shaky union. With Aiden’s support and his boss’s inspiration, Jeremy comes up with a plan to make sure Ariadne's little blackbird comes into this world with everything she needs. While Jeremy grows into his new role as protector, Aiden needs to ease back on his protectiveness over his once-timid lover. Aiden may be a wolf in student's clothing and Jeremy may be a rabbit of a man, but that doesn’t mean they can’t walk the wilds of Granby together.

Ok. So I’m going to give a hopefully brief synopsis of the previous books, in case you haven’t read them for a while… If you haven’t read them you need to before you read this book. Trust me, they are soooo worth it. But seriously, you need to know about Jeremy and Aiden before you read this story.

Rance Crawford owns a textile mill in Granby Colorado, raising sheep, alpaca and rabbits, harvesting the fur, processing and dyeing it. In to Craw’s life comes Ben, an animal loving computer nerd. They have a very gentle romance, and fall in love. Theirs is the easier story of the collection. So Aiden and Ariadne have worked for Craw for some time, Aiden in the mill, Ariadne in the store. Prior to the arrival of Ben, Craw heads to Boulder once a month to make a delivery to a yarn store, and a “delivery” to Stanley, who works there. Craw finds Jeremy panhandling on the street outside the store one day, buys him some food and gets his story. Jeremy is a recovering con man, having witnessed his father get shot by a mobster, and had his life saved by a man named Gianni. He made an attempt to live on his own, got caught and spent two years in jail. He wants to live a straight life, but needs help. Craw gives him that help. Back to Granby they go, where Jeremy meets the barely 18 year old Aiden and falls in love….

Then we have Aiden and Jeremy, first they learn how to be friends, then move on to lovers. Jeremy is a scared bunny, not good enough for Aiden, not good enough for any of them really. Jeremy comes to trust him and they admit their love and settle in to a life together. Stanley is a recovering club kid, a twink at 30, with hair plugs, and an art degree, working in a yarn store in Colorado. When Craw stops his deliveries to the yarn store, he hires a delivery service, and in walks Johnny. They start to date, and out comes Johnny’s story. Stanley’s Johnny is Jeremy’s Gianni. Stanley and Johnny fall in love, but as things go in Amy world, it all goes to hell. The bad guys come for Johnny through Stanley, Jeremy steps in and gets the crap beaten out of him, thinking he’s paying the piper for his years of bad behavior. He spends two months in the hospital, sharing a room with Ariadne who is pregnant and not doing well. That all doesn’t sound too bad, but it really is. You have to read the books to get the whole story. The good and the bad.

So this story picks right up with poor Jeremy in the hospital, scared and miserable, convinced this is the price he has to pay for the cheating and lying he did with his daddy years before. We thought he felt unworthy of Aiden before? Now that he is broken and scared, he’s even more sure he isn’t good enough for love or friendship. Aiden has to start back at square one, rebuilding his trust all over again. The first quarter of the book is painful, Jeremy and Ariadne in the hospital, lonely and knitting. Getting the occasional visit from Craw and Ben, Rory (Ariadne’s husband) Aiden, and Stanley. It’s so sad. Jeremy is such a sweetheart, I love him dearly, but I want to shake him! He just will not see his own worth no matter what any of them say. It takes the others a long time to realize how screwed up Jeremy is by all of this. Aiden has a hard time for a while, he’s scared, but also mad. How dare Jeremy sacrifice himself when he could have run? Aiden is barely able to look at Stanley, knowing he’s the reason Jeremy did what he did. Well, Johnny really, but it was to directly save Stanley’s life. Eventually they get home, and try to settle back in, with Jeremy barely healed and barely sure he should be there.

What follows is a wonderful story about the growing community these people have made for themselves. Jeremy reluctantly comes to accepts his place within the group, slowly and carefully working in the store as he heals. They all start a project, I won’t say what, but Jeremy works on it and grows and grows. He works through issues with some old farts in Granby, earning their trust. He meets and adjusts to having a boyfriend with a family. He works through his trust issues in a new home. He’s accepted by the folks on the mill obviously, but also by their customers. All of that is great. Then there is his and Aiden’s relationship. Hard and tough on the outside, Aiden is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, fiercely protecting Jeremy, but also calling him out on his baloney, challenging him on his issues, eventually letting him do a bit of growing. Soft and gentle on the inside, taming Jeremy Bunny with love and care. Jeremy and Ariadne form a deep bond as well, I loved seeing that. He’s had no women in his life, Ariadne becomes his mother and sister in one. So sweet.

There’s honestly not a lot of drama or angst in this book, that has all happened. This is about love, acceptance, recovery, redemption, growth, community, and commitment. There is a baby, new critters, old critters, a big wonderful thing the boys all do, and a fabulous ending. They are all happy and settled, content and together. It’s just perfect. No one dies, no one gets hurt, none of the animals die, it’s just a gentle story.

Amy is a fantastic author, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. She’s one of the best in this genre. Flawed characters, angsty stories, and happy endings (eventually!) every time. Some of her books are sweet, some are so tearful I’ve only been able to read them once. Blackbird is definitely more toward the sweet end, the last one had the painful bits, this is just the icing on the cake. You will need a tissue to wipe a tear now and then, but not the whole box!

By the way, I was reading this book at work today. I finished a chapter that ended with “blackbird singing in the dead of night” as Aiden sings to Jeremy. That song runs through the story, and as I was working on a client ten minutes or so later I found myself singing the song. Then it dawned on me it was on the radio, not just in my head!

I waffled between 4.5 and 5 stars on this one, it really is a fabulous book, but in comparison to some of her other books with so much drama, angst, pain, joy and love, I’m going with 4.5. I want to give all of her books 5 stars cause she’s Amy, but if I gave a book like Mourning Heaven 5 stars, this needs to be 4.5.

We Amy Lane fans have waited a long time for this one. We watched how Craw found a homeless starving young man fresh out of prison and brought him home. We watched this self conscious and timid young man feel he was worthless and not entitled to expect anything good in his life. So let’s start from the beginning

Jeremy 'doesn't really know what his true last name is’, has been raised by his father, a drifter and con man. They traveled the circuit like gypsies bilking old ladies and trusting families out of their hard earned money. Jeremy was good looking and retained the gift of gab that made many a women give him all of her money....until Las Vegas.
In Vegas he met Jonnie who worked for the local Mafia Boss. They had a “moment” the night before. Now Jeremy hides behind a curtain while his father was beaten and killed by the Mafia Boss....Jonnie knew he was there and never said a word but was at his room that night with some cash for Jeremy to get out of town. Being homeless and regaining a bit of conscience led to his stint in jail. This is how Craw found him on the balls of his ass, bring him up to the ranch, giving him a warm bed and a job.

It has been heartbreaking to watch how timid and unsure and hungry he was, not for food but he inhaled human kindness like a balm, it had never been directed his way and now he felt too dirty to accept it. Then there was Aiden Rhodes. .Aiden, underage still in high school saw Jeremy and knew he was THE ONE. They bickered constantly, their relationship one of Aiden teaching and Jeremy learning the machinery and wool and friendship.

These last three years of reading this series and reading about this young man has been difficult because we wanted Jeremy to fly. The end of the last book was a horror as timid Jeremy found his strength for his friend and was beaten almost to death by the mafia who was searching for Jonnie. If Aiden hadn't come Jeremy would be dead.

Amy you have taken another series and made it a homecoming . Every time I see pictures of the knitting critters I smile and know that their family is certainly growing at the alpaca ranch like it did at Deacon and Crick’s place at the Pulpit. You make us love these people, it’s a homecoming and this story again brought joyous tears to my eyes as Jeremy found where he so belongs. You did it so carefully and thoughtfully with the love of an author for your wounded boy. Your readers needed this story in the way you only could write it.

I have mentioned this in many reviews that I never know what to expect when I open a story of yours, but I do know that you were born to do this and Amy you make me fly as well. Everyone who loves life, and family and love should read your books and take with them the words you tell.

Jeremy’s story was wonderful. Thank you

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not my favorite in the series. 6 mai 2014

I wish I liked this one more.

The latest book in the Granby Knitting series is by far the most angsty and emotional (I knew Amy Lane couldn't stay fluffy for long!). I loved the level of intensity. I mean, what can I say- I'm a sucker for Amy Lane's gut-punch books. However, this book is also the most unfocused of the series and I didn't love it nearly as much as I was anticipating.

While the other books sort of have interweaving plot lines and time frames, this one takes place right after Knitter in His Natural Habitat. It again follows Jeremy and Aiden, two of my favorite characters from the series, but it also includes a lot of details about the lives of the other guys from Granby, which I adored.

While the intentions of this book were good, I found it to be kind of... gimmicky. The comparison of Jeremy to a rabbit was used over and over and over, and I got a little tired of some of the other repetitiveness seen throughout the book. Also, was I the only one a bit put off by Jeremy calling Aiden "boy" all the time? I kept saying it out loud, trying to make it feel right to me, but it felt awkward.

I also struggled with the pacing. I felt my attention wavering at times, and I just wasn't as interested in the storyline as I have been in past books.

My last issue is that I didn't feel like this book covered much new ground. I felt like Aiden and Jeremy's relationship didn't evolve that much from their previous book and I almost felt like this story was superfluous.

After all that complaining, I have to say that the story was very likable at times. It felt like a warm blanket, getting to visit with all of my Granby friends, and I felt affectionate towards all the characters. I liked getting a bit more back story about Aiden and spending more time in Amy Lane's world.

Though I enjoyed this book overall, I don't know if I would have liked it so much if I wasn't already thoroughly invested in these Granby people. I would have liked to see more Johnny and Stanley (maybe in the next?).

I don't know why I'm surprised any more when I read another beautiful book by Amy Lane. I'll admit to holding onto this for quite awhile before reading it. Oh, not because I didn't want to, I guess I was channeling a little of my own Jeremy Bunny, and not thinking I deserved to take the time to read something purely, selfishly, for me. Luckily, my husband helped me see the error of my ways. Yes, he wrote the date down. *giggle*
Jeremy and Aiden brought an "oh, wow" to my heart and soul in 'How to Raise an Honest Rabbit', and they've done it again, here. I got to watch Jeremy find more of his inner strength, and that was just as miraculous as watching Stanley mature. I'm always going to want to protect Jeremy. I guess I'm more like Aiden, in that respect. But, now, Aiden and I both know, that Jeremy can be a wolf, too.
I loved getting back to Granby, and I'm hoping to get more of it, someday. Craw, Ben, Aiden, Jeremy, Stanley, Johnny, Ariadne, Rory, and Persephone, are my family, too. I don't like to go too long without checking in on them. Thank you, Amy. It's beautiful and lovely.

5 of 5 stars~ Review by Teresa

For original review see Prism Book Alliance

Amy Lane has done it again! Blackbird Knitting in a Bunny’s Lair a wonderful blending of sadness and hardship with humour and love. The whole Granby gang is back and supporting each other through Jeremy’s recovery, Ariadne’s pregnancy and the birth of her daughter.

Jeremy is so sweet yet damaged. This is really the story of him finding his worth, with Aiden’s love and support, while doing for others. I adored the love and generosity showed throughout the story, despite the few who were against them. It felt real and was heartwarming. I think all our lives would benefit from a little charity in them.

I had “Blackbird” playing in the back of my mind (Sarah McLachan’s version) as I read the book and it was the perfect accompaniment.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
