Alyssa was dared to enter a contest. A bit more than nudged by her best friend. So she did, and the next thing she knows - she's won! A Romantic trip for two to Mackinac Island, Michigan. Frankly, about the last place Alyssa ever planned to go back to again. You see, she once went every year to this wonderful place, to her Grandmothers. Then, she stopped, 15 years prior, and never told anyone at all why. Since she is without a fellow, she takes her best friend with her. After all, Libby got her into this to start with!
Ah, but Grandmother still lives there, and she has a mission for our young ladies, and they soon find themselves out collecting quilt squares from long lost friends on the Island. Scott, is helping them with transport. He might be in Alyssa's future, but only if her broken heart can heal, and forgive, and move forward. How is she suppose to do that if the past keeps popping up, and not just in memories? What major issue/secret is hidden in her past and can it be healed, or will she just be broken for the rest of her life?
You will have to read this latest Quilts of Love series book to find out what grand design brought all this about! Carol :)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Words from the author:
Hi, I'm Amber, but my friends call me Tiff, short for Tiffany, my first name. I am in my mid-30's, married to the love of my life since July 2007, have a daughter and a son, and live in Colorado. Here, I am content to do what I love—write, speak, and offer virtual assistance.
Thanks to the gentle nudging of a fellow author -- Tracie Peterson -- in 2002, I joined the American Christian Fiction Writers and wouldn't be published today without them. For those of you who are also fiction writers looking for a wonderful support group, check them out! My very first book, Promises, Promises, sold in December 2006 and released in February 2008. I've been going steady ever since.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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?
