A Grand Design Book Review Book Tour

A Grand Design
About the Book:
New From Quilts of Love || A Grand Design
A getaway on a charming island may be just what Alyssa needs—if only she can let go of her past.
When Alyssa Denham, a single career woman, wins a fun getaway for two on Mackinac Island where her grandmother lives, she gives her carefree best friend a call. Together, they tour the old shops and hidden treasures of the quaint island while helping Alyssa’s grandmother piece together an heirloom quilt. Their quest gains them entrance into the homes of many longtime residents of the island, parts of the city that are otherwise off limits to tourists.
As the quilt’s story takes shape, Alyssa gains amazing insight into her grandmother’s life . . . and attracts the attention of the handsome Scott Whitman, an island resident in charge of hotel transportation. Will memories of her past keep Alyssa from letting go? Or will the quest to piece together the heirloom quilt restore Alyssa’s fractured heart—and bring healing to her entire family?

My Review:

Being from Michigan, having visited Mackinaw Island, this book spoke straight to my heart. This book not only has a romance going on, but we learn why the past has haunted Alyssa and has kept her from returning to the beautiful Island. Filled with charm, an adventure to seek various pieces to help her grandmother put together a quilt from those who live on the Island, the reader learns the past of Alyssa, her family and her grandmothers life. Of course the book is filled with it's moments of laughter and moments of pain, but in the end, Alyssa finds the reason why she was suppose to return to Mackinaw Island. This is a must, to end your summer reading adventures! I highly recommend this one or you will have missed out on getting to know a great story and one of my favorite places to visit in the UP (Upper Peninsula).

Thank you to Litfuse publishing for providing me this complimentary copy in exchange for my review. I was not compensated for a positive review and this is my honest opinion.
