Publisher Comments:

“The perfect book to curl up with, as warm and cozy as your favorite sweater.”
—New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs

 

Author Rachael Herron spins a delightful yarn in her wonderful debut novel How to Knit a Love Song. The first in her Cypress Hollow Yarn series of smart, witty, and wonderful love stories woven around a knitting theme, How to Knit a Love Song is a delightful indulgence certain to charm every reader who loved The Friday Night Knitting Club, as well as devoted fans of the heartwarming fiction of Debbie Macomber, Sheryl Woods, and Susan Wiggs.

Review:

"Herron steps briskly into formula in her debut about knitting and a mismatched couple who hate to love each other. When knitting book author Abigail is bequeathed a cottage and a small piece of land on a ranch owned by her best friend and mentor, Eliza Carpenter, she decides to give it a go in sleepy Northern California. Instead of her idealized version of a quaint abode, she arrives to find a decrepit, junk-filled shack and an irascible rancher, Cade — nephew of Eliza — who, despite his anger at Abigail having anything to do with his ranch, allows her to stay in his house until she gets the cottage in order. The two gorgeous strangers quickly realize an attraction they swear to fend off, but, of course, they don't, though there's a lot of fussing along the way. Herron, a popular knitting blogger, weaves in her love of the art throughout the rote romance. It has sweet moments, but the uninspired plot gets tiresome." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Abigail is more than ready for a change when she inherits a cottage from her beloved mentor, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Leaving the oppressive city for the greener pastures of a small California beach town, she intends to turn her cozy little windfall into a knitting shop and spend her days spinning, designing, and purling. But she's not going to be welcomed with open arms by her new neighbor. Eliza's disgruntled nephew, the gorgeous Cade, now owns everything surrounding Abigail's ramshackle new home, and he views this sexy city girl as an unwanted interloper.

But chemistry working overtime is drawing two very different people closerthan they ever thought possible. And when the past that Abigail thought she'dleft behind comes calling, she'll have to somehow learn to trust her handsome adversary with much more than just her heart.

A great little romance. I finished the book in less than a day and when I was done I felt I was still in the location of the book. Rachael did a great job with descriptions. I'm ready to move. I haven't read a romance in a while, I was impressed with the blend of modern references and story-lines along with traditional romance notes. I can't wait to read her next book, I hope there are more to come!
