This is a full-length, 110k word novel and is the first book in the Knitting in the City series.

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn't know how to knit.

After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can't refuse.


  • Loved this book

    By g'smum
    I loved Janie’s over analytical mind, and laughed out loud reading some of her thoughts. Cheesy, but lovely. I love that this is as much about friendship as it is about a guy.

  • Very enjoyable.

    By Scotts girls
    A very enjoyable and entertaining book. The characters are lovable and relatable, the story line has more depth and is more true to life in terms of human nature than most romantic novels, and it's funny.
  • Loved it!

    By Littlewutze
    This book is awesome and really well written - it's funny, quirky and romantic and you can't help to fall in love with the main character, Janie! Can't wait to read more books in this series.

    Couldn't put it down. Could relate to Janie and her wandering mind a little to much, and what girl doesn't love a happy ending.

    This. Book. Was. Amazing. Penny Reid is an awesome writer! The only negative in this book would be the countless typos. Even so, this ebook is worth the read. If you don't read it, we can't be friends. Hahahaha.
  • Wonderful

    I truly loved this book. I struggled to put it down and made silly excuses to read just one more page. I cannot wait for more from this very talented author and knower of weird random factoids.
  • A 5 star read

    By Wooleejumpa
    What an incredible first novel from this author. I love the way Janie speaks her rambling thoughts out loud, what a character, she reminds me of Don Tillman in 'The Rosie Project'. Now big decision time: do I get the follow-up book to continue the story or will I be disappointed if the standard of writing is not as good?
  • Funny! Smart! Brilliant!

    By The Fairy with the crooked tooth
    Janie is one of those super smart people who, due to a difficult childhood, has developed ecentric coping habits (which are often funny). She comes across as being mildly Aspbergers (though whether she is or not doesn’t really matter). The story starts the day she is made redundant ie fired for no known reason…she is having a day from hell…that morning she learned her boyfriend not only cheated on her, he left the condum packet in his pocket where she found it doing laundry. To make her humiliation complete the building guard who shows up to escort her out of the building is the Hottie she’s been stalking/eying for two weeks. To her surprise he addresses her in the elevator and in her nervousness she starts spewing facts like a verbal Wikipedia for the blind. This is a brilliant romance that made me laugh all the way through…and I could totally believe these two people would fall in love. The story is told from Janie’s perspective which leaves lots of unknowns…allowing the plot to unfold without knowing what will happen. I’m in the middle of one of the author’s other stories and I have to say she’s going on my favorite author lists.
