About the book:
A getaway on a charming island may be just what Alyssa needs---if only she can let go of her past.
When Alyssa Denham, a single career woman, wins a fun getaway for two on Mackinac Island where her grandmother lives, she gives her carefree best friend a call. Together, they tour the old shops and hidden treasures of the quaint island while helping Alyssa's grandmother piece together an heirloom quilt. Their quest gains them entrance into the homes of many longtime residents of the island, parts of the city that are otherwise off limits to tourists.
As the quilt's story takes shape, Alyssa gains amazing insight into her grandmother's life . . . and attracts the attention of the handsome Scott Whitman, an island resident in charge of hotel transportation. Will memories of her past keep Alyssa from letting go? Or will the quest to piece together the heirloom quilt restore Alyssa's fractured heart---and bring healing to her entire family?

I really enjoyed this month's new Quilts of Love book, "A Grand Design," by Amber Stockton. Right away I was drawn into the story as Alyssa is a character whom is so easy to relate to and she became so real to me. Also, the storyline is so fun, imagine winning a bridal magazine contest when you aren't getting married, much less even having a boyfriend? Added to this is the fact that the vacation is to a place where Alyssa has family and a history. I really enjoyed "sharing" this vacation with Alyssa and Libby as these two best friends are so fun and complement each other so well, as they are so different from each other and balance each other out so well. Alyssa's story is shared throughout the book as well as her grandmother's, and it is shared in a way that kept me reading as different pieces were hinted at, but not revealed until later on. As Alyssa travels over the island getting the quilt pieces for her grandmother, she learns so much and also heals little by little. This is an excellent read, one that is quick, sweet and will capture your heart; I highly recommend it.
