Masterpiece Marriage Review!!!!!

Masterpiece Marriage by Gina Welborn

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.

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

After a flood damages the looms at Zenus Dane's Philadelphia textile mill and the bank demands loan payment, Zenus turns to his aunt for help repurposing his textiles. Trouble is . . . his aunt has already been hired by the lovely yet secretive Englishwoman Mary Varrs.
Eager to acquire his aunt's quilt patterns, Zenus attends the summer Quilting Bee, a social event his aunt has uniquely designed with the secret purpose of finding Zenus a wife. However Zenus only has eyes for Mary, but Mary has no such desire for him.
Though his aunt is determined to design a masterpiece marriage, both Zenus and Mary will have to overcome their stubborn ways. Can he realize that love requires stepping out of his routine? And will she recognize that following her heart doesn't mean sacrificing her ambition?

My Opinion:
One of the best in this series!  This is the first time I've read anything from Gina Welborn and I hope to change that after this!  From the beginning I was intrigued and then the humor started! :D  This book made me laugh so much I don't think I should read it in public! LOL!  I don't think I've read books in this time so it was very interesting to me what was accepted and what wasn't.  The characters are hilarious, lovable, and fascinating!  I absolutely LOVE the way Gina writes her character's prayers!!!  Once again I LOVE the quilt and quilting that is woven into the story, and the other very interesting and unique occupations and goals that fill these books is always awesome!  From botanical interests to woman's suffrage the many different personalities of the characters flow together to make a highly entertaining read!  I wouldn't have minded if the book had been longer or if there would be another book with these same characters!  The pace is set nicely and the plot progresses quickly.  I almost wish that there were sketches and illustrations of the quilts mentioned and the other things that Mrs. Osbourne draws.  This quickly became one of my all time favorite books in the Quilts of Love series, and one that I wouldn't mind reading again!  Humor, love, intrigue, betrayal, loss, hope, and much more!  I highly, HIGHLY recommend this very entertaining read!
