Review

''Rachael Herron seamlessly blends romance, friendship, and laughter.'' --Barbara Bretton, USA Today bestselling author --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

From the Back Cover

It has always been Naomi Fontaine’s dream to practice small-town medicine—an ambition that brought her to Cypress Hollow, the charming, tight-knit community her late friend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter, loved so well. But no matter how hard she tries, Naomi can’t seem to fit in here. Then rugged Rig Keller moves in to take over half of Naomi’s medical practice, and instantly charms everyone in town . . . including Naomi.

Rig saw what a broken relationship did to his brother, and has no interest whatsoever in getting serious. But the temptation to play doctor with his new partner is just too strong to resist. Any chance they might have of being truly knit together by love, however, depends entirely on what secrets they are willing to reveal . . . and on Rig’s willingness to risk his heart and Naomi’s desire to open hers completely.

I've been super excited about the newest Cypress Hollow book, and once again, it did not disappoint! I think this might be my favorite one. The story grabbed me from the first page and it just gets better and better. The characters are lovely and quirky and real, and it's funny and sweet and sad and surprising and sexy all at the same time. Highly recommended.

Rachael Herron has done it again! Wishes and Stitches is another wonderfully crafted story populated by interesting, funny, and realistic characters making their way through the ups and downs of life while searching for love and a sense of belonging (and creating lots of sparks and steam along the way).

Did I enjoy this book: This was not a book that I read every free chance I had. I found this book to be rather slow. It was really hard for me to get into.

I did not feel for the main character, Naomi, at all. I did not find her sympathetic. I didn't get her. She was a knitter - loved to knit - and she moved to a town that was full of knitters. Yet, she didn't share her secret with ANYONE but complained that she wasn't accepted in the town. I also did not buy her shyness and awkwardness. It seemed to contrived.

With that being said, I did get into the book at the last 50 or so pages. That was when I finally got invested and wanted to see how it ended. The ending was good.

I really liked Bruno, the office assistant, and Frank, Rig's father. Both of these characters were well-written and fun to read. I didn't care all that much for Rig. He seemed cocky and a bit of an ass.

Would I recommend it: I would not.

Will I read it again: Nope.

Format: Paperback
I'm a slow reader and I finished this in three days. It's not highly cerebral - not exactly Dostoevsky - but on a cold, winter Valentine's weekend, it was the right elixar. I give the author extra points for the Eliza quotes at the beginning of each chapter creating good character development, as well as the black humour (the part about urn). These things redeemed the book for me, with its outrageous story progression (although I liked the outrageous beginning of how Rig and Naomi met). You'll know in the first chapter if you like it or if you don't. Her romatic bits are "interesting" and I have to wonder if she's making fun it or if this is how she really pictures it.

Format: Paperback
Naomi Fontaine's dream has always been to be a small-town doctor. So when she has the opportunity to buy into a practice in Cypress Hollow, California, she jumps at it.
She's even able to get a charming little cottage to live in.

But, for some reason, it's not at all what she expected. Painfully shy, she never knows what to say to people, even when they speak to her first. At least, with old Dr. Pederson on such a long vacation, she's able to keep busy at work. And she can daydream about the uncharacteristic one-night-stand she had at that medical conference.

Then the guy (what kind of name is "Rig" anyway?) walks into the Tillie's Diner while Naomi's having breakfast. Not only is Rig's brother Jake captain of the town's fire department, he's the one Dr. Pederson hired to help Naomi with the medical practice.

Naomi does her best to avoid Rig, but it's hard when they have to work together. Keeping their relationship professional is tough when Rig won't cooperate -- and why does he seem to fit into the small town more easily than her?

All the Cypress Hollow regulars are here: Abigail and Cade, Lucy and Owen. It's not difficult to forsee where Naomi and Rig will end up, but the journey there is interesting and contains a few surprises.

The third Cypress Hollow yarn is as charming as the first two. The pattern for the shawl that Naomi is knitting is included at the end of the book.

*Many thanks to LibraryThing Early Reviewers for the ARC.

This third book in the series was equally as fun to read as the last two! If you are yarn obsessed or just love a good love story you should pick this book up!

It took me a while to get into Wished & Stitches. It took like a third of the book to connect with Naomi. I didn't get her at first. I have read and enjoyed books with socially awkward females, but at first Naomi didn't come across like that. You are in her head, but I couldn't understand why she wouldn't talk to anyone. The book opens with her in the diner and you read how she wishes people would stop by and say hello. She wishes she were a part of the community like everyone else is. Right after this we get time after time after time where people reach out to her and try to include her and she pretty much blows them off. She knits, like most everyone in town, but for some reason she keeps it secret. When someone asks if she does she says no. They still invite her to come to knitting night, and in her head she is like yes! but then she is just like thanks but no. I didn't get it. I couldn't understand why. I was reading her thoughts, but they didn't make sense to me. Someone waved to her while she is walking on the beach and she thinks I could say hello, but instead she just waves and walks on by without stopping. It didn't make any sense to me.

Eventually you start to see Naomi interact with people and then you can see how she is a bit awkward. She over thinks things and doesn't really know how to make small talk with people. She can't really talk to people outside of patients whom she is great with them. She knows what to say to them, but if it is just a random person on the street she gets a bit tongue tied and it can get a bit uncomfortable. Her awkwardness finally started coming through and then I enjoyed her story.

Rig is the new doctor in town. His brother lives there so the townspeople instantly welcome him with open arms.
