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.
About the book:
A grandmother's last wish is to communicate God's love through an Irish chain quilt.
Taryn McKenna believes she's easy to forget. Abandoned by her parents and left behind when her high school sweetheart joined the army, she vows to never love again and throws herself into her love for the outdoors and the pursuit of a college degree---something no one else in her family has ever accomplished. Her goal, as a young teacher in the hills of North Carolina, is to leave a legacy in the lives of the middle-schoolers she teaches.
When Taryn's grandmother Jemma, the only other person who ever held her close, has a heart attack that reveals a fatal medical condition, Taryn is corralled into helping Grandma work on a final project---an Irish chain quilt that tells the story of her history and the love Jemma knows is out there for Taryn. As the pieces of the quilt come together, Taryn begins to see her value. Can she learn to believe that God will never leave her behind even though others have?

About the Author:
Jodie Bailey is Tarheel born and bred. After 15 years as a military spouse, she settled with her family back in North Carolina. She is the author of the military suspense novel Freefall and is a contributor to a devotional for military families, Fighting Fear: Winning the War at Home. While not working on her next novel, she teaches middle-schoolers to love writing as much as she does.
I really enjoyed this latest addition to the Quilts of Love series as it is a wonderful story as well as a beautiful family history involving a quilt tied in AND it is a Christmas story! "Quilted by Christmas" is a well-written story about Taryn and the hurt and secret she has been holding onto for so many years. Taryn's relationship with Jemma is so strong and the bond between them is what they both need and the support and unconditional love that Taryn needs. The depth of the characters and their relationships is so well-written and presented making the characters come to life. I enjoyed learning about the Irish tradition with the quilt as well. This book will get you right into the Christmas spirit as you will be transported to Jemma''s home and helping she and Taryn get the trees up and the house decorated.
