Description-
  • A FAMILY'S GIFT

    When they were young, cousins Ella, Rachel and Jo were always together at their family's lake house. As they grew up, though, they grew apart...until now, as the three must band together to grant a beloved aunt's dying wish: to finish the quilt she began as a gift for her daughter's Christmas wedding.

    Let It Snow by USA TODAY bestselling author Emilie Richards

    Searching for vintage quilting fabric, independent Jo is reunited with the man she thought she'd marry--and proves that sometimes the second time's the charm....

    You Better Watch Out by Janice Kay Johnson

    Ella is desperate when the unfinished quilt goes missing in her care. But a cocky lawyer might just help her find it-- and find love.

    Nine Ladies Dancing by Sarah Mayberry

    Shy Rachel risks exposing her secret life when she falls for her quilting teacher's seemingly perfect son.

    Together, Jo, Ella and Rachel create a Christmas heirloom that's both a wish and a promise--of happiness, hope and love everlasting.

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    From Rachel@mailoze.com.au: Still the overachiever, Jo? New York seems like a long way to go to find old baby clothes or whatever of Eric's to work into the quilt with Olivia's dresses. I remember taking a long walk around the lake with you one summer because you had to find the perfect wildflowers to make a bouquet for Grammy Mags. By the time we got back they were all wilted and I wasn't speaking to you anymore. Good thing baby clothes don't wilt.

    "You're not from here, are you?" The teenager manning the cash register at the gas station twenty-five miles from Kanowa Lake looked up, and his cheeks flushed. "I just mean, you know, I haven't seen you around."

    Jo glanced at her watch. Could it really be getting dark? It was only three-thirty, yet a curtain was drawing closed over what had passed for sunshine just half an hour earlier.

    When the boy cleared his throat she looked up again. "My family owns a summer house over on Kanowa Lake, but I haven't been back in years."

    "Bad night to visit. You ought to stay here."

    She cocked her head in question.

    "The weather, I mean." He cleared his throat again. "Bad storm coming."

    For the past twenty miles the skies had been spitting snow, but Jo wasn't worried. She had paid the extra bucks for a rental car with four-wheel drive, and now she had topped off the gas tank. She was prepared.

    "Doesn't look that bad," she said.

    "It'll be a dumper. You better get where you're going fast and settle in."

    When she smiled he flushed again. Jo had that effect on men, although she never played it up. Right now she was wearing jeans and fringed suede boots--the closest thing to winter boots she owned. Under her suede jacket a rust-colored cashmere sweater flattered her chestnut hair and amber eyes, but the only makeup she wore was a little lip gloss.

    "I'll be fine."

    He didn't look convinced. He was maybe sixteen, broad-shouldered and skinny. He probably couldn't eat fast enough to keep up with his latest growth spurt.

    "You might want to stock up on a few groceries, just in case," he said. "Snow hits, you won't be going anywhere for a while."

    Five minutes later she left with a small bag of everything edible that the station's sparsely populated shelves had offered. A box of cereal, the last quart of milk in the cooler, two cans of corned beef hash and three chocolate bars. The chocolate bars were three for two dollars, and her teenage admirer had suggested she take advantage of the sale.

    The snow was falling harder now, and she grabbed a few guilty moments in the parking lot, arms flung out like a little girl's to embrace it. Since moving to California at thirteen, she'd only seen snow at ski resorts, where it always seemed professionally staged. This was the snow she remembered from her childhood in the small Pennsylvania town where her physician father had run an emergency clinic until his own emergency, a brain aneurism, had ended his life.

    By the time she pulled onto the road the snow was a thin sheen, but the asphalt was still clearly visible. Four-wheel drive or not, she took her time, not sure if ice had formed under the snow. Three miles down the road she realized that the road and the shoulder now seemed to be one. She could barely discern where her wheels should go, and unfortunately no one had yet come this way to mark the path with tracks.

    She slowed even more and set her wipers up a notch, because the snow was falling faster. Fortunately her tires weren't losing their grip, and signs helped her gauge where she ought to be....
