3 stars Let It Snow by Emilie Richards It is the first story. Jo gets a package from her Aunt who died while she was out of the company on a long business trips. It asks her to help her finish her daughter's wedding quilt. She knows that she won't be around for her wedding. Jo goes to the family cabin in Dec. She is going to search for scraps of material for her part of the quilt using the bride and groom's childhoods material. The first person she runs into is her old fiancé who rescues her. No one in their own families know how close they got and their plans of the future. They both try and hide the box of clothes she is looking for so they can spend more time getting to know each other again. It is cute short story. You Better Watch Out by Janice Kay Johnson It starts off with drama when Ella's car is stolen with the quilt top finished with her part she was going next stop the post office. Ella runs after her car and crashes into Brett. Ella convinces Brett to follow her car. Brett is having doubts about his job after losing a case. He decides that he would rather be helping Ella find her car. Both Brett and Ella are dealing with feelings about their past and trying to decide on the future. Has humor, drama and car chases too as they fall for each other. Nine Ladies Dancing by Sarah Mayberry Title really does not fit the story. Rachel when she was 15 overheard Leo talking bad about her. Now she finds out that he is back home and the lady who is going to help her finish the quilt is his mother. Rachel has to deal with her past hurts. Leo is dealing with a death of a friend and his own hurt body. I needed more from this story. I was hoping for more of the story when they all would be back together. I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when I was finished by NetGalley and Harlequin. Harlequin Anthology 11/05/1013 ISBN 9780373837816

The Christmas Wedding Quilt Love the idea of this book-not only is it about Christmas, but quilting and a wedding and the fact that there are 3 different authors. All these factors led me to want to read/review this book. . Let It Snow by Emilie Richards This story starts out with Jo Miller returning home from overseas and being handed a package from an aunt that had passed away. The quilt square was for Olivia's wedding, her cousin. The letter that comes with the quilt block speaks of what she had intended others to do to complete it. The girl cousins had taken quilt lessons from their grandmother during the summer months when they were growing up. During her holiday vacation she travels to the town of Kenowa Lake where her father had lived.. Brody Ryan, a neighbor and friend recuses her during the storm when she arrives during a northeast blizzard. They are able to catch up with each other. Story also follows how Ryan spends his time in the town and also goes back to when they secretly dated in high school. We learn how and what broke them up... She learns from Eric's mother who's giving her his baby clothes for Eric and Olivia's quilt more about Brody and she wonders if his father's health was the reason they broke up. Especially like the talk of the vineyard that he runs an it's progress over the years and all the talk of the quilt she's working on-a round robin type where she will work on one section then send it off to another cousin for them to do the next section. Kind of like how this book was written-where the next in line will pick up where the first author leaves off... Love how each of them are so devious to do things so they will end up spending more time with one another... She comes up with a gracious gift for him but will he see it as such??? She learns more about his business at the same time he's talking to her mother about Jo's life. They confront one another but will they go their own way to combine forces... . You Better Watch Out by Janice Kay Johnson Ella Torrence is an artist in Seattle with ceramic pieces. Ella is also the cousin of Jo from the previous story and she will be getting what Jo's finished for Olivia's Christmas wedding quilt. Ella had finished her section and it's soon to be sent to Rachel in Australia. The quilt is in her car but someone had just stolen it... Brett Hollister is a lawyer in town and things the past month hadn't gone his way... Ella runs into him and he realizes how frazzled she is.. Brett agrees to take her in his car to follow her stolen car and explains why the quilt top is so important to her. He agrees to help her the next day also because he hates to fail... Love hearing via email from Jo and the and all about the saga of the quilt top... Brett has issues with his job and his father and tries to relieve the pressure by playing racquetball with a neighbor. Love her studio and the hot steamy sex scenes. With Brett's father medical emergency he is able to figure out what part of being a lawyer he wants to pursue. Ella and Brett do run into problems as they listen to one another about their pasts. . Nine Ladies Dancing by Sarah Mayberry Rachel MacIntosh lives in Australia as a librarian and is the 3rd cousin who will sew a border around Olivia's Christmas wedding quilt. Jo and Ella have done their portion. When she got the quilt she knew she was in trouble. She had not quilted in over 15 years... Leo Bennett is recovering from his best friends death and is living home while his mom Gabby took care of him. Gabby has agreed to help Rachel with the quilt top and will have her over many times to teach her new things. Leo had taken a few classes with her in years prior and he's now a firefighter. Rachel just sees him as being rude and crude. Loved hearing of the choices of how to finish the quilt top. Leo confronts Rachel at work and she does tell him what happened years ago that made her not like him at all... He holds all his pain inside, the day of the incident when Cameron died. Gabby is concerned about him and knows he needs to talk to somebody about that day. . Loved this book because it introduced me to a few new authors and loved the saga of the quilt and all it stood for. Travel was another really big hit for me and the things I learned along the way. Loved how the round robin worked out for the quilt and the authors. I have read others similar to this but this one was a seamless transition. I received this book from Net Galley via Harlequin in exchange for my honest review.
