About a week ago, I finished reading How to Knit a Heart Back Home by Rachael Herron.
I read Rachael's first book, How to Knit a Love Song and just loved it. I was so excited to hear that her next book was coming out. Like, so excited I pre-ordered it!
This second book did not disappoint. I even enjoyed it more than the first (which surprised me, because I really really liked the first one)!
I loved that How to Knit a Heart Back Home had characters from the first novel in smaller roles. It felt like you were catching up with some old friends. This book, just like the first one, is perfect for the knitter wanting to read a good love story. The way the main characters find each other again and how their relationship blossoms left me up late reading into the night. It's definitely a page turner.
I think the love story in this book stands on it's own, but add knitting perfectly sprinkled throughout the book and you really have a winning combination. I have tried reading some other knitting-related fiction, and I usually have a hard time getting into it. It all seems a little cheesy. Not in these books. I think if you are knitter (or other fiber artist) you will really enjoy how the knitting is woven (pun intended) into this book. I thought the way the knitting was presented in the second of Herron's books was even better than in the first.
So, the weather is getting warmer, and you may be looking for that perfect beach/poolside read. I highly recommend How to Knit a Heart Back Home. I think you will really like it.
Note: I was not compensated for this review. I read the book, I liked it, so I am sharing my thoughts. For more information, please see my disclosure policy here.
