Swept Away Review Part 1!!!

Swept Away by 
Laura V. Hilton and Cindy Loven

Book Description:
About Quilts of Love: Quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings. The Quilts 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.

Sara doesn't think she wants love. But her grandmother has other plans.
Sara Jane Morgan is trying to balance teaching with caring for her ailing, stubborn grandmother. When school lets out for the summer, the plans are for Grandma to teach Sara Jane to quilt as they finish up the Appalachian Ballad quilt Grandma started as a teenager. But things don't always go as planned.
Andrew Stevenson is hiding from his past---and his future. He works as a handyman to pay the bills, but his heart is as an artisan, designing homemade brooms. When Sara Jane's grandmother hires him to renovate her home, sparks fly between Drew and his new employer's granddaughter.
Still, it doesn't take Sara Jane long to see Drew isn't what he seems. Questions arise, and she starts researching him online. What she discovers could change her life---and her heart---forever.

My Opinion:
Great read!  I have really enjoyed what I have read from Laura, and Cindy is new to me, but I really like the way these two have come together for this one! :)  I REALLY love this series!  I learn so many things about different quilts as well as so many other things from them!  This time it's artisan brooms! :)  I was immediately drawn in from the very first sentence and with the pace flowing beautifully I find myself reading chapter after chapter without wanting to put it down!  There are touches of Pride and Prejudice in the beginning with these two except add a feisty grandma! LOL!  Some of these scenes make me laugh so hard!  I want to read them over again and again!!!  The whole dialogue is fantastic!  And there's also a touch of mystery surrounding Drew that keeps drawing you in!  What does his past hold and where is all of this leading???  TO BE CONTINUED!!!
Songs to come:

Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC
