The Great Christmas Knit-Off by Alexandra Brown
It’s almost Christmas and Sybil has still not recovered from being left standing at the altar of her May the 4th Be With You Star Wars themed wedding when her groom ran away with her twin sister. Sybil has also had a hard time keeping her mind on work and when she hears one of her clients received a settlement with a few extra zeros, she is concerned it may have been an error she made. In a spur of th4e moment decision, Sybil, dog Basil in tow leaves London one night and heads to Tindledale, a town that her friend Cher makes sound simply enchanted. Sybil arrives in the middle of a snowstorm and finds that not only is Tindledale the cure for her heartbreak and work troubles, but her knitting obsession may be just the thing this charming town is in need of. Throw in a handsome doctor and Sybil has hope for a happy Christmas---unless it turns out she was the careless employee with her zeros which will definitely put a wrench in her happily ever after plans.
This is a pleasant, quick read, though there may be a few too many coincidences for some, but as the first in a projected series, this sets up Sybil and her newly found life for more episodes. Sybil’s knitting obsession will whet even a beginner’s appetite to grab some needles and start purling.
