Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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. (Mar.)

    How to knit an awesome book!!

    So. Freaking. Good! I couldn't put it down! The knitting and spinning elements were very natural in the flow of the story. The suspense kept me hanging on to every last word. Of course, the chemistry between Abigail and Cade was undeniable.

    The end seemed a tad rushed to me, but I can honestly say that it may have just been me reading quickly to find out what happens next. That said, this is a must-read for knitting and romance fans combined. I think this is a wonderful debut novel, and I can't wait to see what's next for Cypress Hollow!!

    A Lovely Story

    I enjoyed this story a lot. In fact, I've read the book twice...something I never do.
    A nice romance story with characters that I liked.

    Cute knit fiction

    This is a cute romance novel made less generic by the knit twist. Knitters and romance readers will love this book. If you happen to be both, this book will be paradise for you. Be prepared for a little steaminess. It gets pretty juicy!

    Fair

    Slow start and it could have been better written. Parts seemed to be just added for filler without logical connection. The suspense could really have been built up better and made it such a great book but it was patchy.

    Best book I've read in a good bit!!

    I don't even know how to knit and this book completely made me want to learn ASAP! It was adorable, thrilling, and completely unexpected. I love the chemistry between Cade and Abigail. I couldn't put the book down. I'd highly suggest this book to anyone even if you don't know how to knit. This book will definitely make you want to learn.

    Knitting book mixed with romance

    I love anything that has to do with knitting, and I find most knitting fiction to be very enjoyable. But this book was a little too romance section for me. There are quite a few pretty steamy sence in this book. Way more than I am used to. It is a cute story but the characters take so long to catch on to the romance they are supposed to have I got a little annoyed with plot. The knitting part of the story is very good over all though.

    Wonderful Rainy Day Read

    Rachael Herron did a wonderful job of combining romance, knitting, spinning and animals. All my favorite things. I loved reading the book and would recommend it to all my friends. Loved the bonus knitting pattern.

    A Cozy Little Romance

    I curled up in my car and started reading this book without even leaving the B&N parking lot. The story is fun, the tension between the characters is delicious, and there are even some car crashes and explosions! I especially like the loving care the author gives to the descriptions of places and things in the book. It made me feel grounded in the characters' world.

    Knitters will love the references to yarn culture, but anyone with a romantic heart will love this book.
