What We're Reading: How to Knit a Love Song

Today we're pleased to feature a review by Diana, a member of our Itch to Stitch group!

How to Knit a Love Song by Rachel Herron is a sweet contemporary romance between a sheep rancher/cowboy (very Gary Cooper) and an independent knitting fanatic (she makes her own yarn and patterns). The romance and bad guy storylines were predictable, but the lightness and brightness of the dialogue and descriptions keeps you engaged and turning the pages. The small town setting and secondary characters keep it fun. The knitting theme is interesting without overwhelming the non-knitting reader. I found the ending a little flat since there's no confrontation between the hero and the villain. The setting and the characters shout potential series. I would look forward to another book from this author.
