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 felt like I knew the characters personally and was impressed with Herron's descriptive skills. I honestly "felt" like I was in that cottage and throughout the story, I could vividly see the scenes due to the author's skill. I don't want to leave a spoiler here.....but toward the end of the novel she did an excellent job of making the reader feel like they were there.
And although the character of Eliza had already passed away when the story begins, I certainly felt like I knew her quite well.
Bravo to this author and I can't wait to read the next book in her series!
I love the concept of this story: Woman comes into possession of a cottage and discovers it is full of all that she needs to put her own passion into action-a fiber shop!
I love the location of this story: Small town on the California coast.
I love many of the characters in this story as well: Loyal Tom. Quirky Janet. Etc.
However, aside from not enough in it about either knitting or the cottage shop as it evolves and gets up and running, I had a difficult time with Cade.
OK, he is a hunk. OK, he has kept the ranch running and is dedicated to keeping it running. BUT-and this is a big butt-he just as a LOT of "issues" I think someone with Abigails' past might be more wary of. Didn't anyone else think this as they read this book?
But, the bottom line is that the book is an enjoyable read, and I hope for more from this author.
