from Unravel Me, is no piece of cake herself and just doesn t make her target I know this is romance and Ridgway does some of the better stuff of the genre out there but for multiple books, these characters have been nothing but heartache and hell on wheels And, miraculously, some really great sex fixes both of their deep seated issues Just slightly off pitch.But as for the series, I d recommend it The Epilogue tied out all three books so nicely that I read it twice and smiled the whole time Final in the trilogy, and wrapped up well The author always had the main romantic plot in each book, entwined with a secondary romantic plot The secondary plot either complimented the primary one, or gave added dimension until appearing to tell its own full story in the next book Besides the romantic elements, there was the strong theme of family, what it is, what it s like to not have one, or to have one that isn t what you wanted and how you create family for yourself The yarn shop,

to have one that isn t what you wanted and how you create family for yourself The yarn shop, despite the suggestion that it would be another cozy theme series, wasn t all that prominent It could have just as easily been a coffee shop, craft store, book shop, or art gallery It was just an element place where characters could interact At times, Gabe s self destruction was a bit overwhelming but my main problem was that the mystery bad person who turned up at the end seemed to be a bit too pat The threat was vague, and I would have appreciated a bitemphasis on wondering who was behind it and some hint that I could look back on later and say, OH, yeah, I can see why that person did that and I probably should ve seen it coming Also romances that equate happily ever after with herds of children are going to cost them at least one star Sorry, child bearing romantics DIRTY SEXY KNITTING is a romance book that actually hademotional depth than I was expecting to get The hero of the book is Gabe He s the landlord neighbor of the heroine Cassandra Cassandra owns Malibu Ewe, which is THE place to be if you re into knitting She s also the one to call when some bartender needs to get Gabe out of their bar after another one of his benders Cassandra has been taking care of Gabe for far too long and she s frankly tired of picking up the broken pieces DIRTY SEXY KNITTING is a romance book that actually hademotional depth than I was expecting to get The hero of the book is Gabe He s the landlord neighbor of the heroine Cassandra Cassandra owns Malibu Ewe, which is THE place to be if you re into knitting She s also the one to call when some bartender needs to get Gabe out of their bar after another one of his benders Cassandra has been taking care of Gabe for far too long and she s frankly tired of picking up the broken pieces of a man she has really come to care about.Cassandra s thirtieth birthday is coming up and she s decided to dramatically cut down the time she spends worrying about Gabe and taking care of him Granted Gabe has had some pretty traumatic things happen to him with the loss of his wife and little girl to a drunk driver But Cassandra wants to move on and stop pining for a man that is basically hopeless Both of her half sisters have found their happily ever after and Cassandra yearns for her own After Gabe s latest bender he wakes up in Cassandra s bed, naked, and without any memory of the night before Now that Cassandra wants some space between them Gabe can t help but wonder if he somehow took advantage of the closest friend he has Gabe knows Cassandra deserves a great man in her life, someone way better than him, and yet he can t find the strength to leave Cassandra alone.Even though I had absolutely no previous knowledge of these characters or their stories I still found myself completely drawn into their lives The range of issues in the story were realistic and emotionally compelling I was drawn to both Gabe s wounded but passionate personality and Cassandra s nurturing strength I was rooting for their romance to work and I loved their interactions together There was also a secondary romance in the novel that was just as intriguing as Gabe and Cassandra s Marlys and Dean are from one of the previous novels in the series but there was a good enough description of their relationship and their previous actions to put all the pieces together.Overall I absolutely loved the book I did think the end of the story wrapped up too quickly and the epilogue was a big ole sugary bow placed on a present The emotional depth I found in the entire novel just disappeared in the ending and epilogue But it doesn t matter I still had a huge smile on my face when I closed the book The only thing I m worried about is going back to read the other two books and not enjoying them as much as I would have had I read the trilogy in the correct order But I m still going for it This book is something between a 3 and a 4 for me In the end there were just too many, WTF No really WTF moments for it to be a 4 The plot is pretty simple Cassandra and Gabriel have spent the last two books arguing their way into a seduction They finish the job in this book, and Gabriel, who is grieving for his dead daughter and wife, learns to love again Here s the thing Gabriel has been well established as a hard drinking A hole habits which he

thing Gabriel has been well established as a hard drinking A hole habits which he keeps up for a large portion of the book and then all of the sudden, he falls in love and doesn t need to drink any Again I say W T F Did Ms Ridgway not do any research at all on the psychology of alcoholics Because it is an addiction after a while I m sorry, but you can t just cure it by love and sex If you could, there would be a lot fewer alcoholics in the world and their spouses would be a lotexhausted.In addition to not buying the miraculous love cure, I was not a fan of the way the donor father story wrapped up view spoiler Cassandra tracks down the father she always wanted, he turns out to be an asshole and there s a random psycho murderer brother HUH I get that the ex boyfriend, Ed, was supposed to be a red herring, but it would have been a LOTbelievable that he was upset she had found someone else than some random psycho brother ridiculousness Also a 30 year old hot hippie chick virgin who owns a knitting store Really hide spoiler I m okay with jerk heroes who learn their lesson by the end of the book, but Gabriel s redemption just seemed too sudden, like the author thought, Oh, crap, I have a deadline How do I wrap this up Meanwhile, I liked Cassandra as a character, and have through the last two books That really didn t change with this one I wish she had stuck to her guns a little better and avoided Gabriel and his downward spiral a little better, but at the same time, it wouldn t have made sense for the character I thought she was a little too good for the self destructive, brooding Gabriel, but so did he so that was kind of okay.All in all, not a bad book I still liked Nikki s story the best of the three and thought Julia and Cassandra s stories let me down a little after that, but this wasn t bad by any stretch of the imagination I was also glad to get a wrap up to Julia s step daughter s story forget her name Marys but a little like Gabriel, thought she got off a little too light Also amnesia Really I mean REALLY I like romance novels and really don t object to sex in them, but too many sex scenes get boring after awhile and make it seem like there s not enough plot to carry them This book falls into that category for me Of course, the title warns you about that I did like the characters but as a yarn shop owner, I think if I acted like Cassandra during shop hours I wouldn t have many customers It is with sadness I must give this book 1 star The writing was good and the romance side of me got all mushy and enjoyed it But the reasonable side of my brain knows that a woman CANNOT save a man from alcoholism and depression To suggest that the love of a good woman could take away the desire to drink from a man who goes on several day long benders and suffers from suicidal thoughts is SO dangerous Not only does it put too much of a burden on women, it diminishes addiction and mental heal It is with sadness I must give this book 1 star

unchallenged 3.5 stars Picked this up on a whim after spotting it at the library As an avid knitter, I don t often see mention of knitting in books unless it s some offhand comment or insult so I was intrigued when I saw this cover that seemed to really embrace the knitting angle I know there have been knitting themed books before but I ve never read any I was pleasantly surprised by this one Protagonist Cassandra owns a yarn shop in Malibu Several scenes take place in the shop and it s clear that the 3.5 stars Picked this up on a whim after spotting it at the library As an avid knitter, I

the author knows a thing or two about knitting but it never veers into the realm of pandering The knitting is just an element of the story guy it s not the focus Even if you knew nothing about knitting, You can still enjoy this book The romance between Cassandra and Gabe was red hot They had great chemistry and the author takes her time building the tension between the two I liked how their personalities contrast the warm, giving, organic tea loving fiber enthusiast and the gruff, moody and sometimes self destructive landlord There were a few cheesy parts but, overall, it was a really fun read I totally read the series out of order and I want to go back and check out the first two books on the series If you like romance with humor and a bit of mystery, definitely give this series a try Conclusion to the trilogy that started with How to Knit a Wild Bikini and Unravel Me Malibu Ewe s owner, Cassandra Riley, is about to turn thirty and wants to celebrate with her knitting club and her newfound half sisters, Nikki and Juliet, in a big birthday extravaganza But with Juliet on her honeymoon and Nikki with her fianc , it seems everyone s paired up except for Cassandra Until a series of near death accidents causes Cassandra to run straight into the arms of the one man she s avoided most Registered at Bookcrossing fabulous book from Christie Ridgway I love her characters,
