This review is for the book "A Grand Design" by Amber Stockton. This is another book in the Quilts of Love series. I am really enjoying this series. All of the books have quilting in common, but the characters and stories are completely different, and even written by different authors. This particular book is about Alyssa. She used to take a vacation every summer to Mackinac Island and then suddenly stopped one summer. Now, fifteen years later, she is back visiting her grandmother. Her grandmother sets up a goal for Alyssa to complete which has to do with quilting. Meanwhile, Alyssa keeps running into this guy Scott who she is trying not to get the hots for.
I enjoyed this story although I did feel that it was a little more mysterious than necessary. Alyssa quit coming to the island for fifteen years and it takes almost the entire book to find out why she stopped. And the person who she confides in is Scott, who she's known for only a couple of days. But hey - it's fiction.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity and Abingdon Press for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
