I think Rachael Herron has done a great job with this book! I loved reading it and it was as good if not better than her previous two releases. Ms. Herron is wonderful at writing characters that have serious angst and emotional issues. They're very easy to relate to because we all have some sort of angst or pain in our own lives.

I really liked the characters of Dr.Naomi Fontaine and Dr.Henry "Rig" Keller. And once again the family members of Naomi and Rig also played very important roles not only in the development of the story, but they also had little side stories of their own.

I loved the little updates about Abby and Cade and Owen and Lucy. And there was a twist at the end that I did not see coming, but loved! My only complaint would be that Naomi forgave her mother quite quickly and easily after carrying around her feelings and thoughts for a long time. But I am eagerly looking forward to more books about Cypress Hollow and its inhabitants!

Did I enjoy this book: This was not a book that I read every free chance I had. I found this book to be rather slow. It was really hard for me to get into.

I did not feel for the main character, Naomi, at all. I did not find her sympathetic. I didn't get her. She was a knitter - loved to knit - and she moved to a town that was full of knitters. Yet, she didn't share her secret with ANYONE but complained that she wasn't accepted in the town. I also did not buy her shyness and awkwardness. It seemed to contrived.

With that being said, I did get into the book at the last 50 or so pages. That was when I finally got invested and wanted to see how it ended. The ending was good.

I really liked Bruno, the office assistant, and Frank, Rig's father. Both of these characters were well-written and fun to read. I didn't care all that much for Rig. He seemed cocky and a bit of an ass.

Would I recommend it: I would not.

Will I read it again: Nope.
