Review: The Shadow on the Quilt by Stephanie Grace Whitson


Barbour Books / 2012
  Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:
Will past pain unravel the future?

Juliana Sutton has just about everything a woman could want. Her husband is riding a crest of success in the bustling capitol city of Lincoln, and Juliana leads various philanthropic endeavors. Once finished, their new home, a spectacular mansion on five acres, will be the envy of all. Then a devastating scandal erupts. . . .

Cass Gregory, the foreman overseeing the Sutton mansion construction, has spent recent years trying to untangle the disastrous results of his own past choices—and wishing he didn’t know the truth about his boss. When scandal ignites, Cass longs to comfort Juliana but is convinced her position in society and his past make a relationship impossible.

Juliana and Cass are thrown together as completion of the mansion draws near, each one wounded and afraid to trust. Will the shadow of a name stand between them and true happiness?

My thoughts:

The Shadow On The Quilt was a nice read. I read book one, The Key On The Quilt, last year and enjoyed it, so I was somewhat looking forward to reading this novel.

I thought the story was interesting and I liked how there were a couple things in the story that I didn't see coming.

The characters were good. Not favorites of mine, but I did like them. Another thing I liked about The Shadow On The Quilt was how lyrics to some hymns were incorporated in the story. I didn't care for the Times when the story seemed to repeat itself.

Overall, a nice read. I enjoyed it. :) I will probably read the next book in this series someday.
