Review by Booklist Reviews

Three best-selling authors knit together a richly emotional, wonderfully nourishing collection of contemporary romances. In the charming "Twenty-First Wish," Macomber brings back Anne Marie Roche, the heroine of Twenty Wishes (2008), for one more chance at love with the biological father of her adopted daughter. Susan Mallery strikes exactly the right balance between sweet and sexy in "Coming Unraveled," in which everyone in Georgetown is delighted when Robyn Mulligan returns home to Texas to help her beloved grandmother run her knitting shop. Well, everyone except cranky T. J. Passman, whose injuries have forced him to take up knitting as therapy. In Christina Skye's elegantly written, exceptionally poignant "Return to Summer Island," Caro McNeal only has one day with First Lieutenant Gage Grayson before he returns to duty in Afghanistan, but that one day is enough to convince her to wait as long as it takes for Gage to come back home. Each splendidly entertaining romance comes with its own knitting project, making the book a perfect crossover read for the nonfiction yarn-craft crowd. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

In this uplifting anthology, Macomber (Between Friends), Mallery (Someone Like You), and Skye (Bound by Dreams) spin three yarns related to a passion for knitting and accompanied by appropriate knitting patterns. In "The Twenty-First Wish," 10-year-old knitter Ellen yearns for her birth father to marry her adoptive mother. For Robyn in "Coming Unraveled," knitting had been a way of life until she pursued her dream of starring on Broadway. After the dream fades, Robyn's return to her grandma's home and knitting store puts her on a new path toward the handsome and enigmatic T.J. In "Return to Summer Island," a car accident badly damages Caro's hand and arm. As she recovers, she finds solace in knitting and unexpected romance with a charismatic Marine about to deploy to Afghanistan. These simple and pleasant romances will warm readers' hearts. (Apr.)
