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 closer than they ever thought possible, and when the past that Abigail thought she’d left behind comes calling, she’ll have to somehow learn to trust her handsome adversary with much more than just her heart.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/14/2014

    " A quick, light read. I love to knit, so I always enjoy a book featuring knitting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/12/2014

    " Yeah, it's formulaic, but it's done well. The ex storyline was a jolt due to uncanny similarities to my real life. The club-you-on-the-head obviousness of Eliza Carpenter = Elizabeth Zimmerman was, well, a little much, but overall I think it added some depth to the story as you could sort of imagine a fictionalized story that was EZ-adjacent... so in the end I approved. Ha! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 2/11/2014

    " Maybe a 2.5. I had hoped for more knitting in it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 2/9/2014

    " a little trashy, but not bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fourborne | 2/6/2014

    " I don't know why I picked up this book. I knew from title it was a (in your face)romance novel which I don't read. It was very cheesy and predictable, I did however think it was slightly entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 2/2/2014

    " I'm not sure where the title came from, and there was nothing about music in the plot, but I really enjoyed catching up with these characters, who appeared in another one of Herron's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/17/2014

    " A jolly zip-along holiday read if you're in the mood for girlie stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 1/8/2014

    " Sweet, short and ... a entertaining book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 trisha | 1/8/2014

    " fun fast. good therapy to keep me company during legislative session. it's like a PG-13/R-rated Debbie Macomber with more romance and less longing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 11/19/2013

    " Romance Novel. If people came right out and said how they feel, then there would be no problems in a relationship. Very simple story. Girl gets thrown into a situation with a guy. They both "think" wrong but it all turns out OK in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Snap | 11/8/2013

    " Chicklit, quick read. It was okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betzy Vantilborg | 10/30/2013

    " It was pretty predictable from the beginning, but well written and I enjoyed the plot building even though I figured out what was going to happen. Also, I love alpacas. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moni Smith | 9/27/2013

    " This was my first romance novel. Not normally my thing but, I have to admit, I found myself enjoying the escape. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kellie Schache | 9/25/2013

    " In Australia - called Eliza's Gift "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/3/2013

    " Apparently the life of a knitter lacks excitement. This book is more about sex and stalking than about knitting. Not impressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Woods | 8/17/2013

    " a good quick light hearted yet not too cheesy or predictable read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat Morris | 5/24/2013

    " Abigail and Cade both inherited a part of the ranch through the will and have to learn how to live together. Predictable boy meets girl but still a great feel good book. One of three in a series. Second book ready to go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Crann-blakeman | 4/14/2013

    " Loved this story. A wonderful place to escape to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/22/2013

    " So much fun to read. I couldn't put it down. Abigail lives my knitting dream. Fun and easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/21/2013

    " I loved this, and I'm not a big fan of romance. It helped that it has a knitting element, and it helps that I'm a friend of the author, and heard her voice in every word. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Smith | 5/2/2012

    " Cute, classic love story with a good mix of knitting, fiber and family mixed in. That's a good combination for a knitter or fiber lover and romantic. I like Rachael's writing for an easy, feel-good story. Super quick read and leaves you with a good feeling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri | 11/19/2011

    " I finished this the other night and loved it! Even if you're not a knitter, this is a very enjoyable book. The characters were real and the author's sense of description allowed the reader to see the scenes in their mind, which I always enjoy. Now waiting for Herron's book 2 in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ingridmurnane | 9/3/2011

    " Trashy and formulaic, but easy reading and pretty good fun, even if you do know what the ending will be from page 1. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 8/17/2011

    " Read more because I like Rachael's writing than I am a fan of books about knitting or romances. It was a cute book - light, frothy, and fun. I really like the author's voice, and I think she clearly has some skill. My preferred genre? No, but she pulls it off well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 8/11/2011

    " A well-written trash book. And knitting thrown in for good measure! "
