He wants to save his business. She wants to be a professor. But are they asking for more than they can really have?
After a flood damages the looms at Zenus Dane’s Philadelphia textile mill and the bank demands loan payment, Zenus turns to his aunt for help repurposing his textiles. Trouble is . . . his aunt has already been hired by the lovely yet secretive Englishwoman Mary Varrs.
Eager to acquire his aunt’s quilt patterns, Zenus attends the summer Quilting Bee, a social event his aunt has uniquely designed with the secret purpose of finding Zenus a wife. However Zenus only has eyes for Mary, but Mary has no such desire for him.
Though his aunt is determined to design a masterpiece marriage, both Zenus and Mary will have to overcome their stubborn ways. Can he realize that love requires stepping out of his routine? And will she recognize that following her heart doesn’t mean sacrificing her ambition?
This deadline really creeped up on me but, luckily the book was short(er)! As always, this Quilts of Love novella was well-written and, though totally predictable, an enjoyable read. Gina Welborn’s writing was easy to read and understand and painted a beautiful picture as the story unfolded. The characters were very well developed and I loved Zenus’s name! It is a unique name that I honestly have never heard of before and it just rolls off the tongue! A fabulous name choice! I enjoyed reading this new installment to The Quilts of Loves series and look forward to reading more as well as picking up a few of Gina’s own books! 4 out of 5 stars!
