By The Way...

Went to my UBS yesterday...heres what I grabbed!

Dirty Sexy Knitting by: Chrystie Ridgway

Malibu & Ewe's owner, Cassandra Riley, is about to turn thirty and wants to celebrate with her knitting club and her newfound half-sisters, Nikki and Juliet, in a big birthday extravaganza. But with Juliet on her honeymoon and Nikki with her fiancé, it seems everyone's paired up-except for Cassandra. Until a series of near-death accidents causes Cassandra to run straight into the arms of the one man she's avoided most.

How to Knit a Wild Bikini by: Christie Ridgway

Malibu & Ewe is a knit shop run by Cassandra Riley. There, hip knitters gather every Tuesday for Knitter's Night. Nikki Carmichael is new to knitting and to Malibu, where she is the new personal chef for Jay Hef Junior Buchanan, 32, a dedicated playboy who edits NYFM (Not Your Father's Magazine). Nikki resists his attentions, but opposites attract, and steam rises in the kitchen and in the bedroom. Ridgeway mixes in savory subplots concerning Jay's visiting teen niece Fern and Nikki's friendship with Cassandra.

This Perfect Kiss by: Christie Ridgway

Rory Kincaid, who hails from a decadent family of actors, is intent on being sponsored as the Blue party senate candidate and salvaging his tarnished name. His straightlaced political ambitions are threatened, however, when he meets curvy Jilly Skye, an eccentric but compassionate vintage clothes retailer. Although Jilly's purpose in Rory's life is to sell two generations' worth of his family's memorabilia, the two arrange a sham engagement to make Rory look better in the eyes of his party and to satisfy Jilly's growing attraction to her "desert prince." Despite their spurious relationship, Rory and Jilly must fight their strong attraction to each other in order to save themselves from what they believe would be their downfall--his to scandal and hers to love.

So I guess you can say I'm gonna be on a Christie Ridgway kick! lol Ive read a few other books by her and found them to be light, fluffy and funny! ;o) So what do yall think of these books?
