*I received this book for review from the author. This in no way affects my thoughts expressed in this review*
Since I’ve enjoyed reading Quilts of Love books in the past and I love Christmas, I was, needless to say, pretty excited when I heard about Quilted by Christmas.
It is discovered that Taryn’s grandmother, Jemma, has a fatal condition following her heart attack, she wants Taryn to help her finish her last project – an Irish chain quilt. Taryn has been through tough times, and it’s left her feeling like she’s not of much value. Most everyone she loves has left her, and she’s not really ready to put her heart on the line anymore. Through helping with her grandmother’s quilt, though, she just might change her tune.
This book was a quick read for me, and though there were times when it made me shed a few tears, overall it left me with a smile on my face. Author Jodie Bailey did a fantastic job at portraying not only Taryn and Jemma, but the other characters as well. I felt like, while reading this book, it was written in a style that easily allowed me to step into Taryn’s shoes. Though it’s of a standard length, it was a fast read for me because I was so ready to see what happened in the story. I recommend for fans of past Quilts of Love books, and anyone looking for a good read to get into the holiday spirit! Okay, it might just be four days to Halloween, but to me Christmas is a fun time to read about year round!
