Dirty Sexy Knitting by Christie Ridgway

This is the third and final novel in Ridgways knitting series and we finally get the story of Cassandra and Gabe who have traded barbs in the first two books. Gabe is still mourning the tragic death of his wife and daughter to a drunk driver and goes into deep black holes where he goes and drinks himself into a stupor and Cassandra is there to pick up the pieces. After one such night of this, Cassandra decides no more but when Gabe wakes up in her bed he thinks they have been together when they actually have not, he sets about to try to remember what happened. Cassandras sisters, Nikki and Juliet, are in this book as well but not so much as I expected. Marlys, from Unravel Me, also returns and her story concludes as well, which I liked.
Overall, this was three and a half stars. It had a nice mix of steaminess, love, anguish and it also has a bit of suspense thrown in with a little twist I didn't really expect (but probably should have). And thankfully it has a nice epilogue a few years in the future and ties everything up with a big bow...cheesy, but I like to have that! I look forward to the next series of novels from Ridgway but will probably still just get them at the library or PBS vs paying $8 for them.
