Great ReviewJanuary 15, 2011

From the Library Journal! Woot!

Herron, Rachael. How To Knit a Heart Back Home: A Cypress Hollow Yarn.
In her engaging sequel to How To Knit a Love Song, Herron revisits the community of Cypress Hollow and its familiar faces as well as new characters who are as entertaining as they are complicated. When Owen Bancroft, a man with an unhappy childhood, a tarnished police career, and a mother suffering from Alzheimer’s, returns to town, he isn’t expecting to be captivated by bookstore owner and compulsive knitter Lucy Harrison. Quite unexpectedly, the two find themselves working frantically to rescue a car accident victim. It isn’t a surprise that the pair quickly discover they are physically attracted to each other, and they rather timidly begin a sweet romantic relationship with more than its share of difficulties. Knitting love and lore play a major part here; each chapter opens with a knitting quote, and the author’s love of the craft shines through with an intensity that only adds to the plot. Even nonknitters might be intrigued enough to pick up a pair of needles as they turn pages. VERDICT Herron’s second novel will earn her a well-deserved place in the ever-expanding knit-chick lit genre. Patrons who in the past have clamored for the novels of Debbie Macomber, Kate Jacobs, or Gil McNeil will definitely find this a good read.—Margaret Hanes, Civic Ctr. Lib., Warren, MI

I'm so excited! It's so close now! Six weeks! (And I adore that this reviewer picked up on my love of the craft. It is a big, big love. Yep.)

I am starting to see a pattern here - your books come out, I manage a vacation. Book # 1 Made it to Las Vegas, I sure hope Book #2 gets to Canada before I leave for Hawaii in March! And congrats on the review - we all knew your talent would be recognized. After all, we're all still hooked on your blog!

Awesome review! I'm so looking forward to it!

Totally awesome! I couldn't put your first book down - absolutely loved it - and can't wait for this new one. Keep us up on readings, especially for the east bay locals.

Woot! Very nice, indeed. Congratulations!!

I got all excited and rushed to Amazon.com to preorder the book. Instead I got a message that said, "Our records show you pre-ordered this book [several months ago]." I'm on the ball and didn't even know it!! I can't wait until it comes out!

Yay! What a great review! I also look forward to reading it on my Kindle, just like your first novel! :)

so proud that I "knew" you back when!
