I don't read as much as I did when I was younger. I guess taking care of kids and quilting have taken up the time I used to spend reading. Of course, I always make time for the latest Sparks novel- but not much more beyond that.
Then a couple weeks ago I was contacted by Elm Creek Quilts and asked if I wouldn't mind reading Jennifer's latest novel
To be honest, I haven't read any of her other titles, but I have seen them in quilt shops and bookstores. This one caught my attention though. I read the summary and knew I wanted to read it. I grew up near the Sonoma valley in California and thought the story would be interesting.
I'm not even half-way through, but I had to write. I LOVE it! Sometimes it takes me a few pages or a chapter to get into a book- not this one. After the first page I knew I wanted to know more about the characters and their surroundings. Once the quilts were brought into the picture I was hooked for sure. In fact, as soon as I finish writing this post and tuck my kidlets into bed, and I've got a date with my bed and a good book. (Sorry hubs, you'll just have to watch the Oscars w/out me!)
So if you're looking for a good read- check this one out. I can tell you one thing, as soon as I'm done with this one (oh, I'll keep you posted) I'll be tracking down her other titles to read. :o)
