A Grand Design by Amber Stockton – Book Review

If you are a fan of the Quilts Of Love series from Abingdon Press, you will be delighted to know that award-winning author Amber Stockton has just released the newest story in the series and it’s a good one!

In A Grand Design by Amber Stockton, we’ll travel to romantic Mackinac Island with Alyssa Denham on a trip she wins in a bridal magazine contest.

The irony of this once-in-a-lifetime prize is that Amber is single, and Mackinac Island – a place she loved as a child – is a place she has assiduously avoided for the past 15 years because of events from her past.

Nonetheless, Alyssa decides that this trip is God’s answer to the solitary life she is leading, and she invites her best friend Libby to accompany her on the journey!

Once they arrive on the island, Alyssa and Libby are escorted to their hotel by two gentlemen who cannot help but notice the arrival of the two very single friends.

Shortly after her arrival, Alyssa also reconnects with her grandmother, who sends the women on a quest to collect materials for the quilt she is creating.

As the story unfolds, Alyssa has the chance to revisit her past and to open doors that might lead to the future she has always dreamed of.

If you are a fan of contemporary romances, you will enjoy reading A Grand Design!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
