#BookReview (4 stars) – Christmas at The Little Knitting Box, by Helen J. Rolfe @HJRolfe

Blurb:

Christmas is coming and New York is in full swing for the snowy season. But at The Little Knitting Box in the West Village, things are about to change …

The Little Knitting Box has been in Cleo’s family for nearly four decades, and since she arrived fresh off the plane from the Cotswolds four years ago, Cleo has been doing a stellar job of running the store. But instead of an early Christmas card in the mail this year, she gets a letter that tips her world on its axis.

Dylan has had a tumultuous few years. His marriage broke down, his mother passed away and he’s been trying to pick up the pieces as a stay-at-home dad. All he wants this Christmas is to give his kids the home and stability they need. But when he meets Cleo at a party one night, he begins to see it’s not always so easy to move on and pick up the pieces, especially when his ex seems determined to win him back.

When the snow starts to fall in New York City, both Cleo and Dylan realise life is rarely so black and white and both of them have choices to make. Will Dylan follow his heart or his head? And will Cleo ever allow herself to be a part of another family when her own fell apart at the seams?

Full of snow, love and the true meaning of Christmas, this novel will have you hooked until the final page.

My Review:

I was first attracted to this book by its beautiful cover.

Christmas at The Little Knitting Box is a story set in a close-knit community and is as cosy as a woolly jumper.

I loved the shop, and was dying to have a good old rummage around it. I was able to imagine the colour, texture and smell of the balls of wool as if they were in my own hands. My full-time job is selling novelty craft buttons online, so I couldn’t help but imagine having my very own novelty buttons corner within The Little Knitting Box. I also loved that Cleo (who I spent the whole book calling Chloe in my mind) had the nickname Buttons, as I’m known as Auntie Buttons to the little ones amongst my family and friends.

This is an overall feel-good romance with a great mix of characters, a strong focus on family and a festive feel to it.

Now where did I put those knitting needles and that learn how to knit book of mine?!
