Swept Away: A blog Tour and Review
New from Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series | Swept Away
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.

The Quilts of Love series has been one of my favorites that I have had the opportunity to read and review over the last couple years. While it's called a series, it is not one that you have to read every book or be lost. The books are all stand-alone and each one involves spectacular story lines and remarkable characters. This newest release, Swept Away, is no exception.
Three very different characters, all with their own stories, backgrounds, and quirks, come together and show the reader that we all respond differently to negative experiences in our lives. This is no different then us as readers. But God is there through it all and carries us, even when we don't realize it or want it necessarily. I was up very late into the night finishing this book and I cannot wait to read more of the books in the Quilts of Love series. If you are looking to add a great, quick, witty read to your 2015 reading list, this would definitely be one to add.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
