The characters are real and human, and like any good romance, offer many points where the reader can almost imagine themselves in their shoes. I love Abigail and her naivete, and I love Cade and his stubborn brashness. Most of all, I love "EC"'s little tips at the beginning of every chapter.
The knitting pattern at the end of the book is a great little bonus as well. In fact, the knitting aspect is not just thrown in as so many of the current chick-lit novels seem wont to do. There is a real understanding of the craft and the people who live and love it, without alienating people who don't knit (yet--they will want to learn after reading this book!).
I do not knit, nor have I ever shown any interest in knitting. But as soon as I read the first page I was drawn in. I read the book cover to cover in one day. Only stopping to take pee breaks and maybe microwave some popcorn. I am very picky when it comes to books and very opinionated. Only a handful of books have made it into my list as a favorite. I want a book that has "meat" with characters that I feel I know. Something that speaks to my soul and takes me off of my couch and put me into the story. This book did all of those things. The day after I finished I lent my copy to my best friend, you can't keep such a good story to yourself. You have to share! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
I didn't find the plot to be anything remarkable. If anything, it seemed unnecessarily long and drawn out. Basically every chapter could be summarized like this:
Chapters from Abigail's perspective = "I'm so pretty, but unaware of it. I want to open my own yarn store, but I also want to get it on with Cade, who may or may not hate me. Also, I have a stalker."
Chapters from Cade's perspective = "Yarn store? Not on my ranch! But I literally do not think about anything else other than this sexy lady, who I want to evict but kind of protect. Also, I keep getting erections."
The main thing I found irritating was how the story was told from Cade's perspective. It felt like a woman trying to think like a man, but ultimately thinking like a woman. I didn't believe it and it just didn't feel real to me. I found myself rolling my eyes every time I realized it was a Cade chapter.
Overall, I liked it all right. It was a light story and the writing was pretty decent. I think it was a fine first novel and Ms. Herron has nowhere to go but up. I read this after my final exams and it was the perfect mindless solution after reading nothing but law books for four months. I wanted a book where I didn't have to think, and that's exactly what this is.
