Although Anne McCaffrey is best known for her fantasy fiction, she has also penned a few romance novels perfect for post-holiday relaxing. In A Stitch in Snow, well-known children’s book author – and librarian! – Jenny Lovell is on tour promoting her latest book when a blizzard grounds her in Denver. Accustomed to lonely evenings knitting in her hotel room, Jenny finds a pleasant change of pace in a no-strings-attached romantic weekend with Dan, a charming and distinguished fellow traveler.

Not so much a review but took me forever to get my hands on this book! Was the last romance novel I needed for my collection of Anne's! The few people who WERE selling it had it at such insane prices :/

Pleasant escapist fiction. If I hadn't known the author's name, I never would have equated her to the author of the dragon books.

Mildly enjoyable romance with a twist or two, but it definitely felt dated. Not too surprising since it was published in the 80's, but I prefer when a book feels ageless. McCaffrey is really best known for her many fantasy/sci-fi series.

Not a bad change of pace for the dragon lady. But, just and average love story.

I think this is my favorite of Anne McCaffrey's contemporary fiction books; a charming love story with a little mystery thrown in.

One of my favorite books....can't help but like the heroine whom I've admired since first reading this when in my Aran knitter, with wrinkles and grey hair who falls in love at an unexpected time.,a mils and boon but with better style and writing. I only got into this as I had read Anne Macaffreys fantasy offerings...and loved the escapism in the book. An easy read for pure escapism!

I give this one 5 stars because it is one of my "comfort" books, not necessarily because it is a stellar literary achievement. The story of an author (and knitter) on a book tour who meets a mysterious (and romantic) stranger, and then gets drawn into a crime drama.

This is a sweet romance book. I was a young kid reading the "adult" contemporary romance. Dana and Dan are sweetly matched. There is a bit of conflict which easily resolves in a happily ever after. I thought all romance novels ended up in happily ever afters.

Very, very slow. The first couple of chapter could have been lopped off since they were not important for the story. Not enough "scenes"--we often learn later what the people talked about before.

A reread for a long plane trip. Pleasant, but I always feel very squicky about the bellhop unlocking the connecting door. To me that whole thing is not romantic, but very scary.
Feb 23, 2014 Carol rated it it was ok
felt it was aimed at older reader (empathy for main character) / more old fashioned style. not sure about writing in 1st person. Didn't enjoy as much as Pern books

Good story. Romance happens when stuck at an airport. Murder charges follow. Alibi is needed. Weekend lover to the rescue.

Her books are always great. I hope her son continues in her path as his reads are just as wonderful.
