About the Book:
Sara doesn’t think she wants love. But her grandmother has other plans.
Sara Jane Morgan is trying to balance teaching with caring for her ailing, stubborn grandmother. When school lets out for the summer, the plans are for Grandma to teach Sara Jane to quilt as they finish up the Appalachian Ballad quilt Grandma started as a teenager. But things don’t always go as planned.
Andrew Stevenson is hiding from his past—and his future. He works as a handyman to pay the bills, but his heart is as an artisan, designing homemade brooms. When Sara Jane’s grandmother hires him to renovate her home, sparks fly between Drew and his new employer’s granddaughter.
Still, it doesn’t take Sara Jane long to see Drew isn’t what he seems. Questions arise, and she starts researching him online. What she discovers could change her life—and her heart—forever.

This was a great and fast read and I love the teaming of the authors, both who write great books on their own but together it brings a whole new dimension to their story telling. I do admit the idea of a match making Grandma seems a little far fetched to me, as neither of my Grandma’s ever tried to get involved in my romantic life but I think it would have been nice at the same time. As I’ve experienced recently, life doesn’t always go in the way you want it to and that is something Sara and Drew both come to realize – while each are sure they don’t want to become romantically involved life and God intervenes and shows them that maybe, just maybe they really do belong together.
As always I make sure to give my readers any warnings that I think they’d want to know about before they begin reading this book, in Chapter 17 a fairly heated physical scene threatens to undermine what they each believe – I will admit I was uncomfortable reading about “she made a moaning sound” and so on. Overall, I enjoyed this book and the story of Sara and Drew’s blooming love – although I could have done without that scene above the rest of the book was right up my alley and gave me a good way to unwind before I fell off to sleep.
