This is a full-length, 110k word novel and is the first book in the Knitting in the City series.

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn't know how to knit.

After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can't refuse.

    Really well written. Very unique- the character depth catches you to read as fast as she thinks. Too clever! Thank you...I think ūüėä

    It has been a long time since a book has had me so engrossed that I haven't been able to put it down (as in 2am reading marathon). I'm a disgustingly avid one click queen for romance (due to the lack of it in real life). A lot of them are predictable and fuzzy, but still leave you with a smile and satisfied closure for the characters. THIS BOOK is intelligent, witty and incredibly frustrating at times (in a really good way). The development of characters and story line reminded me to raise my standards for achieving the warm and fuzzies, with twists and turns along the way.......well done!

    What a hilariously funny love story!! The plot was great, the characters superb and Janie was truly delightful. Penny Reid had her personality, foibles & idiosyncrasies down pat to such an extent that one wonders if, in fact, she may have similar qualities? I am a 70 yr old male who just stumbled across this book in i-books & bought it for a laugh --- I got plenty and enjoyed it so much I'll go looking for more of Penny's work now. Janie, in some ways, reminds me of my beautiful wife of 30 yrs. we're still happy & couldn't imagine ever being apart. We still laughter at & with each other & tease like crazy. It keeps life interesting. Keep up the good work Penny. Regards, Gary H Redlands City Queensland Australia

    I couldn't put this book down! It made me laugh out loud over over again. The highs and lows of love and life.....
  • Easy light read

    By NoNicknamenumber2
    It's not going to challenge anyone with complex characters or plot lines, but it's a light fun read to knock off in a few hours. Pure escapism.
