Quilts of Love ~ A GRAND DESIGN #bookreview PLUS Kindle HDX Giveaway & “Fall into Fall” Facebook Party!

I had the opportunity to read the  Quilts of Love book, A Grand Design by Amber Stockton. This book deals with struggling to let painful memories go and move into God's healing? Set on historic Mackinac Island.

My Thoughts:

There were so many parts of this book I loved!  The setting was fabulous!  I would love to visit Mackinac Island after reading this book.  Alyssa wasn't my favorite character at first. She was very insecure but with everyone else around her making up the slack - until she gets her confidence back - I found myself liking her more and more through out the book!  Scott was a fabulous romantic lead!  I was routing for him!  I hope we see her Grandmother pop up more in the series!  Lastly I loved the little bits and pieces of story about the quilt.  Sometimes books with a craft theme element overwhelm the reader with too many details but Stockton had a beautiful balance with this one!

This really is a cute summer romance read!  I thoroughly enjoyed it.     

About the book: 

A getaway on a charming island may be just what Alyssa needs---if only she can let go of her past.

When Alyssa Denham, a single career woman, wins a fun getaway for two on Mackinac Island where her grandmother lives, she gives her carefree best friend a call. Together, they tour the old shops and hidden treasures of the quaint island while helping Alyssa's grandmother piece together an heirloom quilt. Their quest gains them entrance into the homes of many longtime residents of the island, parts of the city that are otherwise off limits to tourists.

As the quilt's story takes shape, Alyssa gains amazing insight into her grandmother's life . . . and attracts the attention of the handsome Scott Whitman, an island resident in charge of hotel transportation. Will memories of her past keep Alyssa from letting go? Or will the quest to piece together the heirloom quilt restore Alyssa's fractured heart---and bring healing to her entire family?
