Christmas at the Little Knitting Box by Helen J Rolfe @HJRolfe


Book Description:

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 Thoughts:

What a wonderful festive read!

There is literally nothing I didn’t like about this book. I loved all of it. From the wonderful New York setting to the fabulous shop as well as the engaging characters.

The story flicks between Cleo and Dylan, this way we get to know both characters really well. Even though essentially this is a romantic read, it really was so much more. Both Cleo and Dylan have to overcome people and things from their past in order to move on with their lives. Seeing them deal with their situations had me well and truly hooked.

I’ve never been one for knitting. My mum tried teaching me when I was a child but was never great so didn’t take me long to grow bored of it. The parts in this story though to do with the Little Knitting Box had me in awe. I felt like a child in a candy shop. I could so easily visualise the wonderful array of colours and the feel of the different materials. It had me wanting to rush straight out and buy myself some knitting needles.

Christmas at the Little Knitting Box is the perfect read for this time of year. It’s all about friendships, loved ones as well as being true to yourself and going after what you want in this life. A book that you will want to curl up with and lose yourself into.

My thanks to the author as I won this book in a giveaway that they ran on their Facebook page. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads 5/5 stars.

  1. This one sounds delightful. I admit I don’t read many Christmas themed books but I would definitely read this one. It may snow here in CT tomorrow. If it’s bad enough, my plans will need to change and I just might read this if they do. I looks like a it could be a one-day read.
