When Trixie Lynn Parks took off from the town of Twilight, she had no thoughts of ever returning. After changing her name to Emma and working hard for twelve years to make it big as an actress, her dreams are shattered. An unexpected request brings her back, only to find many things are the same and her first love still makes her sizzle.
Sam Cheek has become a single dad and a vet. He’s no longer the gangly, loveable boy she’d left behind, but a man who knows what he wants, but has a different approach to almost everything.
The chemistry that sizzled when they were young is still there, but both want their own way and this causes problems, especially when there’s a little boy in the equation.
THE TRUE LOVE QUILTING CLUB is a winner for this reviewer, as I really enjoyed this tale. It’s well written and not the usual romance, because this one had a heart and plenty of folk interfering. There is a large cast of characters, but it doesn’t really interrupt the romance, well not much.
The romance going on with Trixie and Sam is a tale of youthful love, as the story of what has happened since school days slowly unfolds.
Putting on a re-enactment play was hard work and interesting, as some made the grade and others dropped by the wayside. The quilters and actors were all well written and there’s a great side story, with Trixie learning to quilt and learning her lines over a fence with Sam. With a little bit of outside interference the two main characters will surely live happily, but of course the war and Trixie’s career causes hiccups along the way.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
