5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely afternoon read 13 April 2010
I'm usually a furtive, "This is my guilty pleasure so please don't judge me!" sort of romance reader, but Rachael Herron might have just broken me of that. Intelligent and witty, this follows the traditional romance formula but still delivers tension and relief throughout. I bought it out of curiosity, having been a reader of Yarnagogo (the author's blog) since it was titled My Glass House, but I can honestly say I'll be purchasing the next two in the series just to see what happens. A lovely way to spend an afternoon, or several if you read slowly because you're also wrestling a sweater sleeve at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable and with a bonus! 16 Nov 2010
I'm not usually a romance novel fan much preferring science fiction and fantasy, but as a keen knitter and spinner I have been following Rachael Herron AKA Yarnagogo's blog for some time now, reading about her life and progress with her book and out of sheer nosiness bought her book to see what she had written.

I wasn't sure what to expect so with an open mind went straight to the back of the book as is my wont to find a splendid knitting pattern and started to ponder how that fit into the story. I started to read and became enthralled by the characters the settings and the story so much so that I stayed up till three am to read through to the end. What a fine way to spend a few hours in the company of Cade and Abigail and all the other great characters.......good stuff!

I am now re-reading it slowly so I can enjoy it again and planning what yarn to knit the pattern in!

This is my first review of anything i have purchased on Amazon so I hope its ok

I read this book in one sitting, and it was perfect. A lovely romance, but all the better if you knit too! Definitely worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic romance (with some great knitting tips!) 2 Mar 2010
By Orli Gal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rachael Herron's writing is familiar to me, since I've been following her blog for quite a while now. This book is more than just a longer blog entry though--it is a sweet, funny, and sometimes sad romance that I literally could not put down. I purchased the book at 1:32am (Kindle edition) and it is now 4:19am and I've just finished.

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!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for knitters! 20 May 2010
By Cory Rumbaugh - Published on Amazon.com
I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan. After finishing all of his books I found myself lost as to what to read next. I spent over an hour browsing through Borders trying to sift through all the books and pick my next get a way. I really don't know what drew me to "How to Knit a Love Song" but whatever it was I am greatly thankful.
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable diversion! 15 April 2010
By K. J. Hudson - Published on Amazon.com
I cannot remember the last time I willingly purchased a romance novel, but I was willing to give this one a try. I have enjoyed Rachael's blog for years and I knew her writing would be quality entertainment at the very least. This book was a smooth, fast read, offering a pleasant diversion from everyday life. I found myself excited to read the next chapter, and pleasantly surprised at some of the twists in the storyline. This is a romance novel, yes, but don't assume that it will have a predictable Harlequin plot. The female lead is bright, capable, and hardworking, and the male lead is honest, respectful, and easy to adore. I recommend any fiction lover to try this one on for size.

1.0 out of 5 stars I hated this book... 5 Jun 2011
By Laurie Munn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this book for my Kindle because to be honest, I have been doing a lot of tedious, technical, complicated reading for my job. Normally I really enjoy memoirs and don't read much fiction. But I wanted something light and easy to read to give my brain a break. And I'm a knitter, so I thought this story would be perfect. I was so disappointed. I gave this one star because of the knitting/fiber aspects of the story. Rachel Herron is clearly a knitter or a fiber artist, or at least respects the craft enormously, because those passages were spot-on accurate. But the dialogue and the story itself read like they were written by a 15-year-old girl who's trying to win a "Harlequin Romance" contest.

I felt like this book insulted my intelligence. No substance to these characters at all. Cade is petulant, self-centered and a horrible communicator. We're supposed to feel sympathetic toward him because he's great in bed? I thought women had advanced a few miles past that but apparently I'm wrong. And Abigail is presumptuous, immature and bratty. The dialogue was unrealistic, awkward at times and other times just plain clunky.

I have read other knitting fiction and enjoyed it very much. If you're looking to read knitting fiction, don't bother with this one. Spend your money on some nice, high-quality sock yarn instead. I wish I had.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much sex, too little knitting 23 July 2011
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A decent story, I guess. But, if it weren't for the little bit of knitting in the book, I would've thought I'd bought a Harlequin Romance. A bit smutty for my taste.
