Hooked on You by Kathleen Fuller // Review

When her grandmother breaks her leg playing for the church baseball team, Riley reluctantly returns to Maple Falls to help run her grandmother's yarn shop on main street.

Being an avid knitter and crocheter I was instantly intrigued by the cover and title of this book, and the fact that it was written by Kathleen Fuller and author who I have enjoyed in the past was the icing on top. The first in what is sure to be a wonderful series, Maple Falls comes to life through its welcoming small town charm and larger-than-life characters. Irma and her Bosom Buddies were an absolute riot, and I hope to see them prominently featured throughout the series because they added so much heart and humor to this heartwarming small town romance. 

Riley is a more reserved heroine, she is organized and talented, but likes to keep her cards close to her chest so she won't get hurt. I liked the relationship between her and her grandmother, and the BB's, and I loved how Anita and Harper welcomed her into their circle.

Overall, a heartwarming read with a full cast of characters, Hayden is an amazing guy, patient with and respectful of Riley throughout. There are strong themes of faith and forgiveness, with great character development. Irma had to be my favorite character, with all of her schemes, and love for Riley. A great weekend read with plenty of heart and a cozy small town setting. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
