Review - The Wedding Quilt Bride


While I have read a few dozen Harlequin romance titles over the years, I don't believe I have ever read any of their "Love Inspired" books, which is the Harlequin line of Christian romances. Well, until I had received several of thesed titles in the late spring. Originally, I signed up to review the books through the Litfuse Publicity Group, but the PR company shockingly closed down. Another PR firm took over and sent the books to all the reviewers. Unfortunately, my reading schedule was booked up by then, so I decided to the keep the books back for this year's Holiday Gift Guide.

One those titles happens to be The Wedding Quilt Bride by Marta Perry. The book centers on Rebecca Mast, a widow who returns to her Amish community in Lost Creek with her son, Elijah, to start a new life and open a quilt shop in the downstairs area of their new home. She hires a childhood friend, Daniel King, to make repairs to the house and to help build the quilt shop. 

Rebecca was a little hesitant at first to hire Daniel as a carpenter because she has a dark secret that she doesn't want him to know about. However, he's the best carpenter in the community to help realize her dream of owning a quilting shop, so lets him in her home; where he builds a friendship with her and Elijah.

Final Thoughts

I don't know why, but I'm sucker for Amish romances. I have read countless titles of the genre and I cannot get enough of them. The Wedding Quilt Bride is your by-the-book romance story where a widowed mother goes home to start anew and falls in love with an ex. That pretty much sums up the entire plot of this book. Not that this type of plot is a bad thing, but it's a little predictable. 

Overall, The Wedding Quilt Bride is a fast-paced, well-written romantic read. The story isn't exactly perfect, but I liked it enough to recommend it as a good Christmas gift idea, especially for those who like reading Amish fiction.
