Synopsis: He wants to save his business. She wants to be a professor. But are they asking for more than they can really have?

My review: I really enjoyed this installment of the Quilts of Love series. The characters of this book were fun to get to know. I like how the author made them be in real life situations it made reading even more enjoyable. The one thing I did miss in this book compared to some of the other quilt books is that is seemed as if there was not much focus on the quilt or its history. For me hearing the history of the quilts is one of my favorite parts of the books. All in all another great installment in a fun set of books. The Quilts of Love series can be read as stand alone books.
