About the Author

Frances L. Devine grew up in the great state of Texas, where she wrote her first story at the age of nine. She moved to Southwest Missouri more than twenty years ago and fell in love with the hills, the fall colors, and Silver Dollar City. Frances has always loved to read, especially cozy mysteries, and considers herself blessed to have the opportunity to write in her favorite genre. She is the mother of seven adult children and has fourteen wonderful grandchildren.

Cynthia Hickey grew up in a family of storytellers and moved around the country a lot as an army brat. Her desire is to write about real, but flawed characters in a wholesome way that her seven children and five grandchildren can all be proud of. She and her husband live in Arizona where Cynthia is a full-time writer.

Marilyn Leach has enjoyed writing for the stage as well as for publication. She became a “dyed in the wool” British enthusiast, after visiting England where she discovered her roots. She currently teaches art at an inner-city school near Denver, Colorado, and lives lakeside near the foothills.

Winter A. Peck is a storyteller at heart. Her first vivid memories are of summer family reunions spent listening to stories of the past. Winter leans heavily on her mid-western roots, her love of the Old West, and the rodeo, weaving each aspect into her books. When she’s not writing, she’s busy coaching junior high girl’s volleyball, staying active in her church, and juggling the active life of a military wife. She’s the mother of three boys and one cowgirl in training. Currently, Winter and her family live in North Central Illinois.

Grandmother only wished for one thing – for her daughters to come together once more to complete the quilt that she started – and now it’s too late. There is only one thing left to be done, her granddaughters need to finish it instead. On the one year anniversary of her death. Patterns of Love Carla is the youngest of the cousins and has spent her life feeling inadequate in their shadows. Except for the short period of time that she was a figure skater. That was a talent that God gave her but is the chance at figure skating once more with the possibility to once more be ‘something’ going to be worth the sacrifices that she’ll have to make? Review: This was a sweet Christian romance that reminds us to accept us as we are made. Author: Frances Devine Grade: B Ages: 16+ Unraveling Love On the eve of her graduation Zoe left town with her mother leaving the man she loved and intended to marry. Dewayne. Though she still carries him in her heart she can’t help but feel that her mother really did need to come first. Now, her mother is gone and Zoe most rely on Dewayne to help her to get to the meeting with her cousins. Review: So much fun! I really enjoyed Zoe’s personality and her outlook. She wasn’t perfect just real. Her life verse is Romans 8:28 and sometime it’s funny to see her trying to find the good in everything… Author: Cynthia Hickey Grade: A Ages: 16+ Stitched in Love Healing from an ACL injury Volleyball Olympic hopeful Danni can’t wait to get back to her sport but Grandma’s quilt must come first. To do that she needs to find her mother’s quilt square. Her mother has hidden it and skipped town still resentful over the twelve-year rift with her sisters. Danni’s mother even deserted her at the airport… well, she did at least arrange a ride from the only man Danni has ever loved – like that what Danni needs now. Review: I loved every word! It was so very real – a war hero dealing with PTSD and a volleyball player still stinging from the shift her life has taken. I didn’t put this one down! Author: Winter A. Peck Grade: A Ages: 16+ Designed to Love Eve is tremendously excited to spend a few days lounging by herself at the hotel before her cousins arrive. Until, of course, her quilt squares are stolen and security blows her off like a gnat. Don’t they realize that sentimental value is valuable as well. And why is it that Psalm 46:10 keeps echoing in her head, her heart, and her conversations? Review: Fantistic! This was terribly exciting and so much fun!

I have to admit that I read the last section of the book first, because I wanted to read the mystery piece written by Ms. Leach. But then I was compelled to read the other three to connect the 'threads' of how these four cousins came together. As a native of the front range in Colorado, these ladies did a fine job of weaving the setting and events into a very plausible romance / mystery fiction delight. Great vacation read!

4 STARS Threads of Love has 4 connecting stories by 4 different authors. Four cousins are set to meat at a 5 star hotel one year anniversery of their grandmother's death. They needed to finsh thier quilt she started. That thier mother's would not work on because they are fueding with each other. All the stories have a bible verse that is on one square of the quilt. This is a very clean and uplifting romances. I liked getting to know the cousins and how they all worked together. Patterns of Love by Frances Devine Carla Daniels is a waitress.

Designed to Love by Marilyn Leach Eve Kirkwood is planning to stay a week before meeting her cousins at the hotel. Her room was broke into and her quilting squares were in a antique box which was worth a lot while she was soaking in the tub. The house detective did not want to worry about getting her quilting squares back and she complained to the manager. Eve was not going to leave it alone. She wanted her grandmothers work back. She figured out who it was. This story was more of a mystery and lots of drama and action. All four cousins fell in love in a couple of weeks or recongized old friends were still in love with each other. I enjoyed reading them.
