Category romance favorite Heidi Betts is now trying her hand at single title romance. If her first attempt…Tangled In Love is a good indicator (and I’m sure it is) Ms. Betts has a long and prosperous career ahead of her.

Veronica Chasen is a newspaper columnist who has a lot of freedom in the topics she chooses to write about, but one topic that gets her a lot of readers is the challenge she has issued with rival columnist Dylan Stone. The two have used their columns to bait each other publicly while personally fighting an attraction to one another.

When Veronica finally issues what she thinks of as the ultimate challenge she is sure she has Dylan by the balls…the yarn ball that is! She is giving him one month to not only learn to knit, but to complete a usable item as well. From my own personal experience with attempting to learn to knit I know that this is not an easy challenge to win.

Dylan being the headstrong type that he is believes it will be a piece of cake. As he gets started he finds himself in a clearly tangled mess and must resort to getting help. What better way to get help, than to head to the local yarn store, and ask their knitting group?

One small problem…the knitting group is full of woman with whom Dylan has some personal experience. Ronnie as he calls her is the one he singles out to help him. Will she willingly help him beat her own challenge? Will she allow him into her personal life? If she does is he there for keeps, or is he just biding his time until the next challenge be it personal or professional comes along?

Tangled In Love is a fun book to read. While you know that Ronnie and Dylan are the main characters you can’t help but fall in love with the secondary characters as well. Especially if you’re like me, and didn’t realize that this is just the first book in a trilogy. Now I can’t wait to find out what happens to the other members of Ronnie’s knitting club.

In closing I’d like to thank Ms. Betts for a fun romantic comedy that was just what it portrayed itself to be. In this day of paranormal stories abounding, it‘s nice to know that for the non paranormal reader like myself that I can find something I so totally enjoyed!
