It’s not just hems that are frayed in Applewell…

Gracie rescues old clothes and cast offs from Applewell’s charity shop, making them into cute and fresh outfits, which she then sells in her little shop. Turning a profit is hard at the best of times, let alone when new arrival Lucas appears…

After running away from the village in his teens, Lucas has finally returned to an uncomfortable amount of fanfare and gossip. His job requires him to streamline homeless charity, UnderCover, and his plans to do so risk putting Gracie out of business.

The pair of them exchange harsh words but when Lucas’ niece cuts up his sister’s wedding dress, there’s only one person he can think to turn to. Along with repairing the dress, will Gracie patch up her relationship with Lucas? Or is that a stitch too far?

A sweet and heartwarming romance full of community spirit and quirky characters, for fans of Holly Martin, Suzanne Snow and Phillipa Ashley.

Lilac Mills has become one of my favorite authors!

A Stitch in Time in Applewell follows Lucas who returns to the small town Applewell having run away from that place and moving to London years ago. While in Applewell, his main job is to streamline homeless charity which might put Gracie out of job. However, soon a bond between Lucas and Gracie develops while in Applewell.

The story is mainly told from Lucas and Gracie’s point of view. It was quite enjoyable to read and the author has done a good job of drawing the reader to the story. Despite the fact that I am not so much into romance, this book actually warmed my heart up. I was engrossed into the story of this heartwarming tale. Though the ending was predictable, I enjoyed reading about the small town of Applewell.

Overall, if you like a romantic comedy book, this book is one for you–worth five stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Canelo for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only
