And I know all about secrets. Brilliantly weaving the town of Sugar Maple with that of its inhabitants into one living, breathing entity, this novel captivates readers from the first page. With vibrant, multidimensional characters, including the town itself, Bretton pens a memorable romance that combines knitting, love, magic, and self-discovery. Publishers Weekly Tongue-in-cheek humor lifts this weird but fun hybrid, part knitting cozy, part paranormal romance, from romance veteran Bretton Just Desserts.

Shelves: library , fantasy , romance I passed over this book twice in the library: taking note, but not making the commitment. It caught my eye when I pulled it from the new collection first, and then again when I was shifting the fiction section. When I finally went back and checked it out, I had high hopes. Romance can work, and magic is almost always fun, right? And, hey, knitting!
But it I passed over this book twice in the library: taking note, but not making the commitment. And then together they will fall in love and solve the mystery. Or is it the other way around? What a way to make me resent your character. Knitting is perfectly easy if you have magic! Which quite fortuitously leads me to point number two especially since, well seriously, "hearing loss"??? Yes, the story is told in alternating first person. Like never would I be attracted to a lady like that in a million, zillion years.
Sure, I believe him. Seriously, Ms. Bretton, talk to your publishers. But when he does it? Not even if the cop in question found himself standing there with a stupid grin on his face. Actually, if the alternating first person were between Chloe and her "best friend" whatshisname--call him Elf, because he is, naturally--it might have worked. Maybe that happened later in the book? But not from his point of view.
That poor Chloe, from a long line of witches, has no magic herself but was raised by the village. Sweet right? Chloe thinks so. Except her family line at least the women And she has to give birth to a girl by thirty-five or something to keep the spell going.
Or get magic herself, idk. But the locals totally raised her out of the goodness of their hearts and just love her so much. At that point, I really did feel badly for Chloe. But was this explored? Well, not in the part I read. She was, what? But this is Twu Wuv: My hand touched his, and we both jumped back as silver-white sparks crackled through the space between us.
