The Winter Courtship Rituals of Fur-Bearing Critters (Granby Knitting #1) [Rance & Ben] by Amy Lane

Sweet and funny, you know what, not just funny - HILARIOUS. You just have to get used to that sort of humor - the way Rance sees life, meaning ONLY through critters / knitting / wool making analogies, was kinda strange at the beginning but quickly it grew on me, and no surprise on Ben as well. 

Rance Crawford (our sole POV) lives in a small town and does what he loves best, tending to his alpacas and making wool. Naturally he knits as well, but only for the ones closest to him which is not a lot of people mind you.. mostly the ones working for him and now his new gay neighbor Ben.  

When Ben McCutcheon comes to live in his great aunt house he mainly wants to enjoy the vast sky and peacefulness that comes with it. Though he is a friendly guy whom everyone seems to love it's obvious he is still a bit guarded. But he has nothing on Rance who talks only about his work (even when NOT talking about work) and gives him presents he isn't sure why he is given. It's not mixed signals really, maybe it's just Rance's way of making signals which is totally and absolutely OUT OF THIS WORLD. Yet Ben keep being patient with Rance who wants Ben but isn't sure how to approach except for being a sort of friend who comes baring knitted gifts. 

When finally Ben tells Rance to basically shut up and kiss him he does exactly that which is all it takes for them to move to the next level and for us to finish this story with a silly smile on our faces. 

I'm not sure I got everything Rance or rather Amy was trying to teach me about knitting and the tending of fur-bearing critters, wool manufacturing etc, but I loved every minute of this one nevertheless!
