Book #Giveaway: How to Knit a Heart Back Home

I will be reviewing a copy of How to Knit a Heart Back Home soon, but the publisher is offering two of my US readers hot off the presses copies right now!  You can also buy your very own paperback or kindle version today!

From the Publisher: 
Lucy Harrison sells books by day and volunteers with the Cypress Hollow fire department by night. Her life is just the way she likes it—full, even-keeled, and smooth—until bad-boy ex-cop Owen Bancroft comes back to town. Lucy has always been fearless, never scared about diving in to help others. When it comes to risking her heart, however, she realizes she's absolutely terrified.

In a small town like Cypress Hollow, everyone knows your business—and there is nowhere to hide. Then Lucy and Owen are thrown together by the discovery of the lost work of local legend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Now Owen, adrift and struggling to redefine himself as a civilian without a badge, will have to learn how to open himself up to life's new possibilities . . . while Lucy decides just how much of herself she's willing to gamble on love.

About the Author: 

Rachael Herron received her MFA in English and Creative Writing from Mills College. She lives in Oakland, CA with her family and has way more animals than she ever planned to, though no sheep or alpacas (yet). She learned to knit at the age of five, and generally only puts the needles down to eat, write, or sleep, and sometimes not even then.
Her first book in the Cypress Hollow Yarn series is called HOW TO KNIT A LOVE SONG, and now HOW TO KNIT A HEART BACK HOME is also available. Her memoir, A LIFE IN STITCHES, will be out from Chronicle in fall 2011. Visit her at
