THE SWEETHEARTS' KNITTING CLUB: A GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDEDTHE SWEETHEARTS' 
KNITTING CLUB
BY LORI WILDE


ABOUT THE BOOK:
The first book in Lori Wilde’s new series set in small-town Twilight, Texas, The Sweethearts’ Knitting Club is the story of Flynn McGregor, a young woman who’s always done exactly what her friends, family, and fellow knitters have told her to do—until Jesse Calloway, her bad-boy high school sweetheart, roars back into town.
"Throw a penny in the fountain of the Twilight town square, and you'll be married to your first love . . . 

For ten years, pretty Flynn MacGregor has been turning down the same solid, upright man's marriage proposal. Her friends at the Sweethearts' Knitting Club tell her they're a match made in heaven, but Flynn knows there's only one dangerous reason why she keeps saying no: high school sweetheart Jesse Calloway. She was just sixteen when Jesse was forced out of town under a cloud of suspicion . . . but he's never left her heart.

Now Jesse is back, and every time she turns the corner he's there—gazing at her with his smoldering eyes and tempting her with his kisses. Jesse has never played by the rules, and he's made it clear that he's not going to now. And Flynn, who's always done just what her family, friends, and fellow knitters have told her to do, must finally break free and claim the love that binds Jesse to her heart.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:
“Full of colorful characters...as satisfying as a glass of lemonade on a hot day.”
— Publishers Weekly
 Lori Wilde has created a rich and wonderful story about the charm of small town life combined with the power and passion of first love. Delicious!
— New York Times Bestselling author Robyn Carr
"Nora Roberts fans will love this book." 
 - Craft Gossip
"The Sweethearts’ Knitting Club is a charming and lighthearted romance with a memorable cast of characters. Readers will fall in love with Twilight and the Sweethearts. Luckily, Twilight will be setting for Wilde’s next title as well."  
- Becky Lejeune Bookbitchreviews
"In Lori Wilde’s new book, “The Sweetheart’s Knitting Club”, there is a whole lot more than knitting going on . Combining an immense cast of intriguing characters with a complicated and intense storyline, Wilde delivers a hot blooded tale that practically sets the pages on fire."
- Wichita Times Record

"I found this a delight and loved it...it’s such a warm, sexy story with such colorful characters that I can happily urge everyone to read this one." 
- Romance Review Magazine 

AN EXCERPT FROM THE SWEETHEARTS' KNITTING CLUB:
“You got anybody special waiting for you on the outside?”
 
Jesse Calloway froze with his battered old Timex, the only surviving remnant from his good-for-nothing father, half-strapped onto his wrist.
 
Immediately the image of Flynn MacGregor, looking the way she’d looked the last time he’d seen her, peppered his mind. Wearing that pink dress that made her shine like a springtime tulip. Her soft light brown hair curling to her feisty shoulders, hands clutched into tight fists, bottom lip caught up between her teeth, her hazel eyes wide in stunned disbelief as Sheriff Clinton Trainer had handcuffed him and stuffed him into the backseat of his patrol car.
 
Slowly, he stabbed the strap of the Timex through the loop, completing the cinch, the weight of it unexpectedly heavy against his wrist after all these years. The watch had stopped. Ironic when you thought about it. Stopped watch, stopped life. He wound the stem, and then looked up to meet Warden Neusbaum’s eyes.
 
“No,” he said. “There’s no one.”

“You got anybody special waiting for you on the outside?” This caught my eye as i have someone waiting for me in heaven. The love of life. "Throw a penny in the fountain of the Twilight town square, and you'll be married to your first love . . . I threw a penny in the fountain 45 years ago and found my true love.
I would love to read Lori Wilde’s new book and dream of my memories!
Thanks!
