From the Back Cover

Sybil has always taken comfort in her knitting, creating beautiful garments stitch by stitch. But her world suddenly unravels when her fiance ditches her for her identical twin sister and things go from bad to worse when an incident jeopardizes her job.

Hoping to escape her woes and forget that she'll be alone for Christmas, she visits her friend in Tindledale--a winter wonderland of quaint shops and snowy rooftops. Embraced by welcoming--if eccentric--locals wearing handmade knits reminds Sybil of her own creations and her unrealized ambitions of selling them. So when the vintage boutique asks her to create a knitting display for their front window, she's thrilled. The hot town doctor has even taken an interest in Sybil, hoping to heal her broken heart.

But just when Sybil thinks she's going to have her fairy-tale Christmas after all, an unexpected turn of events threaten to unspool her happily ever after.

I’ve always loved reading and reviewing, but if I’m honest although I’m far from stupid…I’m also not one of those people that uses really long words and discusses other literary talents that half the time I have to Google (or whatever other clever reviewers say). What I like to do is read a book and if I like it or dislike it just tell people why, and most of the time it’s just my random thoughts in reviews. This book to me is the absolute perfect alternative medicine for a poorly person feeling sorry for themselves with a cold and the snivels (see what I mean, nobody will need to Google that!).

One of my friends (thank you V) gave me a gift voucher for this book as I had been ‘rejected’ as a reviewer <insert outraged face here>, but when I got around to reading it I was so poorly and was feeling rather grumpy. I almost (and I’m loathed to admit this) decided to bump it down the pile for being rejected by the Publishers, but who was I kidding I WANTED to read it…so with a box of tissues and a big duvet wrapped around me I started to read. Do you know what? I read it in ONE SITTING people, it was that good! No it’s not going to be awarded some poncy prize for being a piece of literary genius, but what it will do is perk you up, make you smile and if you are feeling poorly, I swear it will make you feel a little bit better!

Sybil (or Sybs as she is known) is recovering from a bit of a battered and bruised heart. She was jilted at the alter by her ex-fiance and to top it all off she may well not have a job to go back to following the biggest mess up of her career. I instantly fell in love with Syb, a normal woman going through a whole host of emotions with only her friends, her knitting and her dog Basil.

The story itself is good. However, I was nearly driven mad by the constant use of the phrase "made big eyes". What in the name of heaven is that all about? Can't the author just say something like " her eyes were wide"? Making big eyes is twee and SO annoying. Without this, . I would definitely have awarded a four star rating.

I enjoyed every page with all its humour and crafty loveliness. As a fellow 'craft- oholic' (mainly knitting & crotchet) I can truly empathise with the crafty characters. I, too, would love to spend my days working & crafting in Hettie' emporium. Lots of hilarious moments with the contrasting sad moments.

Wonderful :)

Loved this book. Brilliant winter read. The author, Alexandra Brown puts you in the heart of village people. The mix of characters, the tragedies of their lives but also their happiness they find in village life.

I really enjoyed this book, just right for this time of year.
It' easy to read and is full of characters that you would love to meet in a small village. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.
