The second book in the Cypress Hollow series, this book is even better than the first. Loved yarn legend Eliza Carpenter's little notes of wisdom at the beginning of each chapter, so much so, I found myself using her quotes on my facebook page. Couldn't wait for the bookstore to open so I downloaded the book on my e-reader and then rushed to the bookstore for a paperback book for my collection. I'm not normally a romance reader, however, this series is the exception because the characters come alive with each turning of the page. Makes me wonder if West Coast men are really like this and if so, why am i still on the East Coast?!

I have read both books so far; I enjoyed them very much. I just wish Rachael could write faster!! It is a romance novel without the heaving breasts, etc. which I hate. When I find an author who can write so I can read without nausea, I am SOLD! Best wishes, Rachael. Keep it up.

Rachael has done it again - a plot where all along I thought I knew what was coming, then *pow* I was wrong. If you think this is yet another predictable knitting romance, think again. The characters are human, with good and bad moments, and the situations are very believable. I love the knitting content, of course, but the story drew me in. I will admit there were a few moments on the plane I wished my Nook screen wasn't as easily readable as it is, but I found the more *cough*romantic*cough* parts well written and not, well, syrupy, crass, or gaggifying. It's hard to write a good sex scene!

Just finished and I'm sorry it's over! Wonderful story, character and knitting pattern! Looking forward to book three of Cypress Hollow, hopefully not too long! If you haven't read the Cypress Hollow series you are missing out.

Rachael Herron's latest - which I felt as though I'd been waiting for FOREVER - has it all: Sexy characters, great dialogue, a welcoming bookstore, a neighborhood bar and - best of all - knitting as part of folks' everyday lives. Every time I read one of Herron's books, I learn something new. With the first book, I learned about ranching. This time, I learned about EMTs and small business ownership. Nice little side stories, with more interesting characters, that enhanced the main storyline. This is a fabulous romance (I'm not reviewing that, since others have already done so here, much better than I would) with wonderful people who are warm, funny, kind, conflicted - much like most of us on our better days. I loved this book - and have already bought a second copy for my cousin, as a birthday gift. Can't wait for book number 3!

I hate to say it, but I did not like this book nearly as much as the first Cypress Hollow Yarn book. I really didn't connect with the characters, Lucy especially, and sort of felt like the entire thing was too contrived. There was just too much passion without much else, and at times I felt like I was reading a cheap romance with some knitting thrown in for effect. I love fluffy, knitting chick-lit, but this book was just so beyond implausible it was laughable in certain parts. Also, the profanity throughout the book was distracting and unnecessary. It's too bad because I had such high hopes for this series based on the first wonderful book.

I enjoyed this book but felt like you were thrown into it. The characters weren't as built up as in the first book, Caleb and Abigail, and it would have helped you develop a liking towards them. I will wait for the next one to come out and read it because the knitting references are enjoyable.

Rachael Herron does not disappoint her readers as we return to Cypress Hollow. I laughed many times as I read about the comings and goings of characters (new and old). Looking forward to more books from Rachael!

I love Rachel Herron! Once again, she's written a captivating story with characters that leap off the page and into your heart. Reading "How to Knit a Heart Back Home" felt like visiting a favorite destination: I got to visit with old friends and meet new favorites along the way. Her stories are fun and funny and juicy and once again, I couldn't put it down. I cannot wait to see what she brings us next!!
