    ┬┐Wishing We Could Patch Hearts as Well as Quilts┬┐ Wife, Mother

    “Wishing We Could Patch Hearts as Well as Quilts”

    Wife, Mother of grown twins, and Educational Consultant, Gayla Oliver is up to her armpits coping with the Mothers of high school seniors who have unrealistic expectations. Being a multi-tasking “Stealth Typist”, she decides to open her computer’s word processing program and edit some essays while she is discussing possible colleges for a client’s daughter. Somehow, she opens her Husband, Brian’s files instead of her own and discovers a memo he has written to her. Sickeningly, it reveals unhappiness among other revelations. Gayla’s world starts spinning out of control with a combination of sadness, anger, fear and loathing. Gayla escapes to the cottage in New Bern, Ct. that they had purchased 3 yrs. prior, but never really enjoyed. With a release of a portion of her anger—she meets her neighbor, landscaper and single Father, Dan Kelleher, who helps her find other ways to let off some steam. Dan’s son Drew has been the “Watchdog” of the Oliver’s cottage, but also baby-sits for Ivy Peterman’s children, saving his earnings for college. It is through both Dan and Drew, that Gayla meets Ivy, who invites her to join the infamous and caring “Cobbled Court Quilt Circle”. We are re-introduced to talented quilters, Evelyn, Virginia, Margot, Tessa, Philippa, Madelyn and Abigail. Single Mom, Ivy Peterman’s world is a fast-paced one—what with caring for her two children, taking a college course, working at the Quilt Shop, mentoring abused women, and is coordinator of the Internship Program at the Women’s Shelter. Life may be chaotic, but is manageable—that is, until she receives the gut-wrenching news that her abusive ex-husband, Hodge is being released from prison and has demanded to spend time with the children. Bethany is old enough to remember the boiling anger, rages, inflicted bruises and terror. Bobby, on the other hand, is too young and has concocted the figure of a “Superhero”. Ivy has her hands full! Has Hodge really changed his ways? Can anyone totally re-create themselves? Will Ivy hold on to her hopes and dreams? And in doing so, perhaps, let romance pass her by? Will Gayla and Brian find renewed happiness in each other—or is it too late?
    Ms. Bostwick has an unbelievable talent for pulling the reader in and making us feel like we’re another welcomed soul either stitching with the Quilt Circle, or listening, as someone pours their heart out in pain or passion. We feel a strong “Belonging” to New Bern and are saddened to leave when the last page is read and we close the cover. This time, one thing is for certain—the story characters as well as readers everywhere will learn not to jump to conclusions—as well as to never relinquish your hopes and dreams. Make room on your shelf for this heart-warmer—you won’t be disappointed!

    Highly Recommend

    Another wonderful story in the Cobble Creek Series by Marie Bostwick.I have loved this series and her other one written just before this 6th one which was a prequel to this series called "Between Heaven and Texas". The prequel has a story based on one of the characters in her first Cobble Creek series. I so enjoy her writing and savor each one as I read them. So often I can identify with some of what she is saying in her books. I am also a quilter so that also helps with the enjoyment. I have recommended her books to a number of friends and also have purchased a book or two as a gift. All tell me they enjoyed them. Her books also would be good for a book club.

    wonderful series!

    Great continuing book, long awaited! Would like to have more development of the already established characters without adding so many new...just a thought. That said, LOVE the series, always anticipate the next one...

    Elle

    She lets him pin her down to the floor, kissing him intensely. She sees him take his hard c.o.c.k. out of her hand and pressing it slightly into her p.u.s.s.y. She bucks her hips up, trying to get more of him into her.
