A Grand Design, a Quilts of Love novel by Amber Stockton

About the Book: 


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 Thoughts: 
This is the first book I have read by author Amber Stockton and it won't be the last.  I thoroughly enjoyed stepping onto Mackinac Island with Alyssa and Libby.  This was a fun book with a hint of mystery, a hint of history and some romance tossed in too.  The characters are well written, the story was intriguing and there was just the right amount of humorous flirtation between the main character and her love interest.  
I would definitely recommend this book to others!!  For more information check out Amber's website, FaceBook page, Twitter and Amazon.com.
