WISHES AND STITCHES: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
WISHES AND STITCHES
BY RACHAEL HERRON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Return with author Rachel Herron to Cypress Hollow, California—small-town mecca of knitting and romance—in Wishes and Stitches. Herron’s third Cypress Hollow Yarn, after How to Knit a Love Song and How to Knit a Heart Back Home, is a warm and unforgettable contemporary romance with true heart and soul in the Sherryl Woods, Susan Wiggs, and Friday Night Knitting Club vein—as two doctors in one tiny town start off as rivals…and end up as soulmates.

It has always been Naomi Fontaine’s dream to practice small-town medicine—an ambition that brought her to Cypress Hollow, the charming, tight-knit community her late friend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter, loved so well. But no matter how hard she tries, Naomi can’t seem to fit in here. Then rugged Rig Keller moves in to take over half of Naomi’s medical practice, and instantly charms everyone in town . . . including Naomi.

Rig saw what a broken relationship did to his brother, and has no interest whatsoever in getting serious. But the temptation to play doctor with his new partner is just too strong to resist. Any chance they might have of being truly knit together by love, however, depends entirely on what secrets they are willing to reveal . . . and on Rig’s willingness to risk his heart and Naomi’s desire to open hers completely.

PRAISE FOR WISHES AND STITCHES:
“Rachael Herron seamlessly blends romance, friendship, and laughter.”—Barbara Bretton

“[She earns] a well-deserved place in the ever-expanding knit-chicklit genre. Patrons who have clamored for the novels of Debbie Macomber, Kate Jacobs, or Gil McNeil will definitely find [Herron] a good read.”--Library Journal

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Rachael Herron received her MFA in writing from Mills College, and has been knitting since she was five years old. It's more than a hobby; it's a way of life.

Rachael lives with her better half in Oakland, California, where they have four cats, three dogs, three spinning wheels, and more instruments than they can count. She is a proud member of the San Francisco Area Romance Writers of America and she is struggling to learn the ukulele.

The author calls Knitting "a way of life." I think that's fascinating. Makes me wonder what I'm missing.

She likes to watch The Amazing Race. That's fun to watch but don't catch it often...only if the shows I like more are reruns.
