Blurb from Goodreads:
The perfect seasonal tale of how laughter, friends and wacky Christmas jumpers can mend a broken heart. For fans of Trisha Ashley and Jenny Colgan.

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 cosies, bobble hats, and jumpers. But, after discovering that she may have perpetrated the cock-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 jumpers are just the thing to add a bit of excitement to her window display, something miraculous starts to happen…

My Thoughts
This book is a must-read for Christmas enthusiasts and crafters!!! The story line moves  very quickly, so much so that I didn’t want to put the book down.  I feel like I know the characters and that I am a part of the Tindledale family due to the author’s exquisite detail!!!! My daughter is learning to knit…which is like loom bands for adults..so I was very interested in the craft details and who can pass up a love at first sight encounter at Christmas? If you need a little help getting in the Christmas spirit be sure to read this book!!!
