Intricate and clever, Herron's knit-centric novel is as warm as the sweater pattern it includes! The delightful Abigail brings both knitting know-how and down-home sense to this story about picking up the threads of your life and creating something brilliant.

After Abigail's mentor, the knitting sensation Eliza, left a cottage and all the supplies to Abigail to start the knitting shop of her dreams, things should be perfect. But still mourning Eliza, Abigail learns that her new cottage lies in the middle of a ranch owned by the handsomest, surliest, most resentful cowboy in the area. As cowboy Cade and knitter Abigail duke it out in a passive-aggressive battle of wills, they find that her new venture might be just the thing to bring them together. (AVON A, Mar., 336 pp., $13.99)
