A Grand Design-Quilts of Love series by Amber Stockton

Alyssa decides to return to Mackinac Island with her best friend after being gone for over 15 years. She stays for 2 weeks on the Island helping her grandmother collect quilt pieces for a memory quilt, spending time site seeing, and getting to know her grandmother's friend Scott. Alyssa never shared with anyone what had happened to her the last time she visited the Island, but eventually she was able to talk about it and start to heal and trust others.

I loved one section of the book that said, "...we have to leave some things up to God and not attempt to control everything. His plans are always the best, no matter what we might think."

I loved reading about Alyssa's relationship with her friend and grandmother. Beautiful romantic ending.

I would consider this book to be clean, christian, romantic fiction. A Grand Design is part of the Quilts of Love series. I would recommend reading this book! It kept my interest and was fun, light reading.  

About Quilts of Love: Quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings. TheQuilts of Love series focuses on the women who quilted all of these things into their family histories. A new book releases each month and features contemporary and historical romances as well as women's fiction and the occasional light mystery. You will be drawn into the endearing characters of this series and be touched by their stories.

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?
