From the Back Cover
When life unravels, it's time to knit . . .
Sybil has always taken comfort in her passion for knitting, creating beautiful garments stitch by stitch. But her world suddenly unravels when her fiance ditches her for her identical twin sister at her Star Wars-themed wedding, leaving Sybil at the altar sporting a Princess Leia do. And things go from bad to worse when an incident at work jeopardizes her job.
To escape her woes and forget that she'll be alone for Christmas this year, Sybil sets off to visit her friend Cher in Tindledale--a winter wonderland of quaint shops and snowy rooftops. When she arrives in the idyllic town, she can't help feeling like she's in a Hallmark greeting card. She's embraced by welcoming--if eccentric--locals wearing handmade sweaters that remind Sybil of her own creations and her unrealized ambitions of selling them. So when the owner of a vintage-clothing boutique asks her to make an assortment of knits for their display window, she's thrilled. And hoping to heal her broken heart, the hot town doctor has even taken an interest in Sybil.
But just when Sybil thinks she's going to have her fairy-tale Christmas after all, an unexpected turn of events threatens to unspool her happily ever after.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. See all Product description

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. One particular friend lives in Tindledale so Syb decides to head over there for a long weekend.
When she arrives she is greeted with an almost picture perfect (well it was in my head) village filled to the brim with weird and wonderful new people. When Sybil meets Hettie who owns Hettie’s House of Haberdashery things take a decidedly unexpected turn and she finds herself at the heart of lots of things going on within the village. Now I know there will some people out there reading this scornfully and saying it’s a predictable load of old rubbish but frankly you can all just jog on. When I want to depress myself I will read a true crime novel. I do NOT want to read a book like this and be left moping because it was so unhappy. So yes, maybe all books in this type of genre are a certain ‘type’ but that’s why I love them.
I am a fan of the ‘Carrington’ series too but in all honesty Hettie and the Tindledale villagers just shot straight to the top of my list. The book is filled with fabulous characters all of whom stole my heart (including Basil). As for the knitting….it’s fab and makes you want to be sitting in the village watching all of the creations! THE single most important thing you all need to know is that by the time I had finished reading this, I am almost positive that my cold had got better, my fever had reduced and I was even smiling In all seriousness an absolutely fabulous book that I devoured and cannot wait for the next one. I shall however try and refrain from repeating the fact that I got rejected…did I mention that?
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.
