Ah, Twilight. You may be thinking Stephenie Meyer when you read that, but me? I'm thinking of Lori Wilde's latest small-town creation, the tightly-knit (No pun intended. Wait. Yes. Pun intended) town of Twilight, Texas. This is the setting for her warm-hearted, emotionally-charged new contemporary romance,
Twilight, Texas, is a place where high school sweethearts can be reunited through the town matchmaker. It's the kind of place where, if you happen to be married to your high-school sweetheart and also know your way around a pair of knitting needles, you can join the local knitting group run by Flynn MacGregor.
Flynn has lived in Twilight all her life, and she's spent that time being a good girl: picking up the pieces of her shattered family after the death of her mother, fulfilling her mother's dream by running the knitting circle, and dating the solid, reliable Sheriff Beau Trainer.
But Flynn has a few secrets, one to do with her knitting ability and the other to do with the bad boy who captured her imagination and her heart all the way back in high school, Jesse Calloway. Jesse understood Flynn like no other person ever had or ever will, but he was sent to prison and Flynn thought she'd never see him again. Until, of course, now. He's out of the joint and ready for a new start in Twilight. Because it just so happens that he's never gotten Flynn out of his system, either...
Oh, the drama, right? Well this lovely little book is the December Feature Romance at Romantic Reads, and we'll be chatting about it all month. And next week, Lori Wilde herself will be visiting to tell us all about Flynn and Jesse, why she learned to knit, and what's next for Twilight.
So come on over and tell us what you're reading and what you recommend. Also, don't forget that next week kicks off our special two-week long Sneak Peak program, where we'll be reading and discussing Heather Webber's Truly, Madly.
Don't miss Michelle Buonfiglio's rumination on why cover copy drives her to pick up certain books at Unabashedly Bookish.
