How to Knit a Love Song Book Review by Lynn
How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron is a novel with a little bit of everything. It’s primarily a book about emergency dispatchers, with a few love scenes, sheep, trucks and yarn thrown in to attract a broader audience. Don’t mistake me; those sections of the novel are not slighted in the least, but the scenes with the emergency dispatchers were what kept me riveted to the pages. I could easily picture the dispatcher clutching her headset, focused on extracting all the details of the call, and with lightning quick responses, calling in the services that would be needed to bring about a happy ending. A call to 911 early in the novel is terminated abruptly, teasing us with the prospects of a larger denouement later. As the story progresses, we are drawn into the character development and the suspense builds – what event, what calamity will result in the final call? Will our heroine be saved? Will our hero make the call?
Alas, for you dear reader, this is a review, not a book report, so you will have to read the book to find out how the dispatcher saves the day! And if you are looking for more emergency services, rest assured that the next book in this series will once again call on the Cypress Hollow dispatchers to save the day.
