About the Author
Christie Ridgway has never lived east of the Pacific Ocean, north of San Francisco, or south of San Diego. To put it simply, she's a California native who loves to travel but is happy to make the Golden State her home. She began her writing career in fifth grade when she penned a volume of love stories featuring herself and a teen idol who will probably be thrilled to remain nameless. Later, though, after marrying her college sweetheart, Christie again took up writing romances, this time with imaginary heroes and heroines. In a house full of males: one terrific husband, two school-age sons, a yellow dog, and tankfuls of fish, reptiles, and amphibians, Christie makes her own place (and peace) writing the kinds of stories she loves best.

Instead of being swept up and overwhelmed in a sexual tapestry of teflon coated debauchery, I was greeted by some run of the mill story where there were places and stuff happened: BORING.
Oh how I long to have my knitting kinks satiated and I thought this would be the book to polish my haberdasher horn but alas, yet again my heart has been embroidered with disappointment.
When will a publishing house finally realise that their is a seam in the market that is yet to be sewn.
2/10 would not fap to again."

Cassandra Riley owns a knitting store called Malibu and Ewe and at the age of 30 has tracked down and established a relationship with her two half sisters (previous books : How to Knit a Wild Bikini and Unravel Me). Cassandra is determined to find their biological father. In addition to this quest, Cassandra has a weakness for her troubled landlord, Gabe Kincaid who in turn is haunted by his own demons. This is Cassandra's story...
Ridgeway's sense of humor and understanding of people shines in this enjoyable read.
This was my favorite out of the three books. The two main characters each had their flaws and they fit well together in spite of and because of them. Cassie with her big heart has rescued a tortured Gabe from bar after bar, drunken spree after drunken spree over a two year period as he mourns for his wife and daughter who were killed by a drunk driver.
In Dirty Sexy Knitting, the two find their way to love.
True love--especially in romance books--never runs smooth and these two are no exception! There is chemistry between them, the plot is good, and there is some suspense through a series of unexplained fires and sabotaging.
The negatives of the book include Cassie's big heart which makes her seem a bit like a doormat. Gabe wallows in self-pity about his wife and daughter's death long after he should have started some healing. The person behind the fires and sabotage is a bit unbelievable as the author did not lay a proper foundation in my opinion for him to be behind the acts.
This is a good solid addition to the contemporary romance genre. Although it is not necessary to read the previous two books with Nikki and Juliet's story, it would help make the story more cohesive.
