My Rating:4

The perfect seasonal tale of how laughter, friends and wacky Christmas sweaters can mend a broken heart.

Heartbroken after being jilted at the altar, Sybil has been saved from despair by her knitting obsession and now her home is filled to bursting with tea cozies, beanies, and sweaters. But, after discovering that she may have perpetrated the screw-up of the century at work, Sybil decides to make a hasty exit and, just weeks before Christmas, runs away to the picturesque village of Tindledale.

There, Sybil discovers Hettie’s House of Haberdashery, an emporium dedicated to the world of knitting and needle craft. But Hettie, the outspoken octogenarian owner, is struggling and now the shop is due for closure. And when Hettie decides that Sybil’s wonderfully wacky Christmas sweaters are just the thing to add a bit of excitement to her window display, something miraculous starts to happen…

My Thoughts:
I loved the Cupcake series, so when I got the chance to review this book, I jumped on it. This was the perfect little Christmas book. There is nothing better than Christmas in a charming New England town. I pretty much loved my way through this delightful book. The characters were spot on and the writing style is on point as well. If you're looking for a book to put you in the Christmas spirit look no further than this book. You'll giggle your way through to the last page and then sigh because it was just that good.
