Swept Away Book Review

I was excited to see another Quilted book in the series so I signed up for it quickly when
Swept Away: Quilts of Love Series by Laura V. Hilton and Cindy Loven came on the list.  I was excited to get it but it wasn't showing up.  It was a week before I was supposed to put up the review and I still didn't have the book.  I wrote the publisher and asked if I was on the tour and should be expecting the book.  She said that they were mailed but something happened with the post office.  I ended up getting it later through UPS so I guess there was something really wrong with the first delivery.  I was excited to see it arrive and I thought that wouldn't be able to read it in time but that wasn't a problem.  I picked it up and couldn't put it down!!

In the book, 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.

I enjoyed the book and read it way too fast.  It was a great book with great characters.  I immediately loved Sara Jane and Andrew and was rooting for them to get together.  Who wouldn't love Grandma!!  She was everything that anyone would want in a grandmother and you could see how she would tell other people to call her grandma and they would.  With ups and downs in the book, there was a lot of happy moments and sad moments (a few that needed a tissue).  Feeling the characters means that it is a good book with great writing and this had both.  I hope that you check out this book and others in the Quilted series.  I know that you will enjoy it!!!
