Casting Spells by Barbara Bretton

As the weather gets colder, I love to curl up in my cozy little knitting nook with some heavy wool and a stack of winter-wear patterns. I'm always amazed as striped hats and fair-isle mittens take shape on my needles, seemingly all by themselves. It really does feel like magic! Maybe that's why I love Barbara Bretton's Sugar Maple series so much. In this idyllic small town in Vermont, "your yarn never tangles, your sleeves always come out the same length, and you always, always get gauge." If you think that sounds like magic - well, you'd be right. Chloe Hobbs is the owner of Sticks & Strings, New England's highest-rated knitting shop. She's also half-sorceress. When an all-human cop, Luke MacKenzie, appears in the town to investigate a terrible accident, Chloe must protect Sugar Maple's supernatural denizens from prying eyes. But it may be hard for her to keep secrets from the only man who has ever understood her human side ...

Even if you don't consider yourself a romance reader, this series truly does weave a magical spell. Casting Spells is the first installment, followed by Laced with Magic and Spun by Sorcery.
