"Quilts of Love" Series Produces Another Winner!

"Masterpiece Marriage" 
     By Gina Welborn 

About Quilts of Love: Quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings. The Quilts of Love series focuses on the women who quilted all of these things into their family histories. A new book releases each month and features contemporary and historical romances as well as women's fiction and the occasional light mystery. You will be drawn into the endearing characters of this series and be touched by their stories.

About the book: 

He wants to save his business. She wants to be a professor. But are they asking for more than they can really have?
After a flood damages the looms at Zenus Dane's Philadelphia textile mill and the bank demands loan payment, Zenus turns to his aunt for help repurposing his textiles. Trouble is . . . his aunt has already been hired by the lovely yet secretive Englishwoman Mary Varrs.
Eager to acquire his aunt's quilt patterns, Zenus attends the summer Quilting Bee, a social event his aunt has uniquely designed with the secret purpose of finding Zenus a wife. However Zenus only has eyes for Mary, but Mary has no such desire for him.
Though his aunt is determined to design a masterpiece marriage, both Zenus and Mary will have to overcome their stubborn ways. Can he realize that love requires stepping out of his routine? And will she recognize that following her heart doesn't mean sacrificing her ambition?

I am always delighted when offered a  "Quilts of Love" book to review. Each centres on a quilt but the variety of plots and characters is amazing.  Some are romance, others mystery, and still others combine one of the former with historical themes. I have yet to be disappointed with one!! I have loved them all.

Gina Welborn is a new author to me, but certainly is one that I will be watching for in the future. Although the story takes place in 1891, many of the  events could very well happen in current times. Although the plot centres around a quilt, there are many twists and turns that grab your attention and have you sitting on the edge of your seat. Both of the main characters have ambition and are determined to follow their plans to achieve their goals. However,  a conflict arises, as Priscilla and Zenus , both headstrong and opinionated, have goals that are extremely different. The quick moving plot keeps you wondering throughout the book.

The character are well developed and realistic. In fact , you become so engrossed in their problems and challenges, that you tend to forget that they are fictional!! I wanted to shake them at times and at others , give them a big hug and some sympathy. 

This is definitely a book not to miss!!  
A five star book!!
