    What can I say about this book? I liked it very much. Being a twin can be very hard at time, especially if you have different personalities. Ellie, the heroine in this book, is a twin to Mae. She cooks at the local diner and in walks a cowboy wanting her to cook for him and his cowhands on his ranch. Ellie and Mae mistake the cowboy's intentions right off. They think he's there to court one of them and propose marriage. Well, they set him straight right off the bat and send him packing. These two ladies have no intention of marrying. They even have a "no marriage" pact. This is so they will never be separated again as they were when children. However, the cowboy, Hero, is very persistent and goes to Ellie's work and explains again what he needs from her. He even offers to double what she makes at the diner if she will at least come cook the evening meal for his ranch hands and himself. She reluctantly agrees and that starts the ball rolling for a romance to start. The rest you will have to read about in the book. Short, but sweet and clean romance. Enjoy!

    Hearts Tightly Knit by Jodie Wolfe is a sweet and satisfying romance read. Ellie and her sister, Mae, are twins who have vowed not to marry, but to always stay together. Ellie is content working at the local diner and knitting in her spare time, so when handsome cowboy, Luke Rogers, comes along looking for a cook to appease his ranch hands, Ellie isn’t interested. But Luke isn’t willing to give up too easily.What starts out as an agreement, to help Luke out with the evening meal, promises to be more than two stubborn people bargained for. Ellie is faced with a decision she never thought she’d have to make. The plot of Hearts Tightly Knit runs smoothly and Ms. Wolfe’s characters are likable and have good depth. The author brings her well-written novella to a heart melting conclusion which avid romance readers will love. Don’t miss Hearts Tightly Knit! I look forward to reading Ms. Wolfe’s next novella, the recently released, Love in the Seams.

    Hearts Tightly Knit was a charming story about twin sisters, Ellie and Mae. I was drawn into their story from the beginning. Ellie and Mae had been orphaned at an early age, separated at times as Mae would be adopted but had to go back to be with Ellie. The sisters made a pack to never be separated then. When they were in their late teens they rode the orphan train to Texas. They both found work with Ellie being a cook and Mae a dressmaker. One day Ellie was asked to come and cook for a handsome young rancher, Luke Rogers. I enjoyed how Ms. Wolfe created some twists and turns in the story--even having Mae going to the ranch one day in Ellie's place. What will happen between Ellie and Luke? Read this amazing story set in the late 1800's filled with pain, laughs, heartbreak, betrayal, faith and romance. Ms. Wolfe weaved an amazing story with great characters and historical accounts. I look forward to the next book, Love in the Seams, which will center on Mae’s journey in life.

    Short Sweet StoryHearts Tightly Knit by Jodie Wolfe moved swiftly enough to be read in one day. The story knits together two broken-hearted and disillusioned people to form a story of love found and almost lost. Because it's a novella, or maybe just a short story, the character development needed something more. Also, the dialogue didn't ring true to the historical period and the Texas location. This story sure could have used a good editing. Nevertheless, this sweet little tale kept me reading and left me wanting to read the sequel. Sure hope it's edited.

    Twin sisters Ellie and Mae have been through a lot. Orphaned at a young age, they were split up a couple of times, but always came back together. As a result, they pledged to never be separated again. But neither expected a handsome ranch owner to come looking for a cook. Add in a feisty boarding house owner, a protective cafe owner, a love-struck cowboy ... and you have all the makings for a fun story.Wonderful book to relax with this summer. Pour a tall lemonade, find your favorite shade tree, and recline in a comfy lawn chair. :)

    Hearts Tightly Knit is a sweet romance that explores the unique relationship between twins. Ellie and Mae are single, career women during a time when marriage at a young age was expected. They carry themselves with confidence without being overbearing. Luke is charming and likeable. Dialogue and description effectively convey a sense of the era and geography. Book 2 is due out in November and I look forward to reading it.

    This story centers around Ellie and Mae, twins who decided at an early age that they would never marry and take care of themselves. Following what happens when their plans turn upside down makes for a delightful read. The author has combined wonderful characters in a historical setting in Texas during the 1800's with romance and faith that made for a read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I certainly will be looking forward to the next book in the series.

    MS Wolfe has done a great job with characterization, moving a story forward, pulling me into the story from its beginning, and gave me that great sigh-worthy ending I look for in any book with Romance involved. Her historical setting is accurate and nicely threaded throughout the book. I look forward to reading more stories by this author!
