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.
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.
I really liked the characters of Dr.Naomi Fontaine and Dr.Henry "Rig" Keller. And once again the family members of Naomi and Rig also played very important roles not only in the development of the story, but they also had little side stories of their own.
I loved the little updates about Abby and Cade and Owen and Lucy. And there was a twist at the end that I did not see coming, but loved! My only complaint would be that Naomi forgave her mother quite quickly and easily after carrying around her feelings and thoughts for a long time. But I am eagerly looking forward to more books about Cypress Hollow and its inhabitants!

Boring drivel. It's true, I'm not a fan of romance novels, but I love knitting so thought I would try it. Writing was poor, story contrived and cliché. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Karen B

Another great book about Cypress Hollow with some knitting and a love story. It's also nice that the author includes past characters from previous books.Published on March 22, 2014 by Mary Wall
