Bethany House Sister's Choice - eBook Patchwork Circle Series #2

When it comes to quilting, Maggie Newcomb is all thumbs. And nobody rubs it in more than Emma Jean Stoddard. But Maggie swallows her ire for one simple reason, she has a crush on Emma Jean's handsome son, Colby, and does not want to ruin her chances. So she works hard to become the best quilter in Maintown. Her plan seems to be working, that is, until Tamara Brennan comes to town. Tamara is wealthy and poised as well as beautiful, and immediately turns Colby's head. Evan Parker is smitten by Tamara, too, but unlike Colby, he is not the dashing, athletic type. He is very smart, no doubt, but rather bookish and unexciting.

Maggie forms a plan: She will help Evan win Tamaras affection so that Colby will once again notice her. But befriending Evan has unforeseen consequences, and before long, Maggie is more confused than ever about what she truly desires in life.

This series has taken a different sort of turn for Judith Pella's writing. Her other books usually consist of international intrigue dealing with foreign affairs. This one however has that comfort feeling of America out west. I enjoyed learning about quilting as I have always found the art to be truly stunning. It's not something I could do but I greatly admire those that do make quilts. They are not just practical items for a household. Quilts are also pieces of highly skilled craftsmanship that tell a story within the stitches and fabric.I really liked the characters in this story. Maggie is a good combination of a young woman who is both looking for love and to grow up but at the same time still enjoys the freedom of being single and being young. I really liked how she's grown up A LOT since the last book. That had been my one complaint and I was glad to see it rectified. She's very loyal to her family and she's a good friend to those in need. Evan is the smart, nerdy guy who's bumbling but caring and cute (I love guys in spectacles lol). I really liked how their friendship grew and evolved. Never do I get annoyed with either one of them throughout the entire story. It was also good to see Ellie and Zack from the first book and bring us up to date on what they've been going through and for their upcoming wedding. The romance is a bit Cyrano de Bergerac so it's like a romantic comedy where you know what's going to happen but you're happy with the results regardless. As I said, I really love all the characters and I would love to see a third book in the series, at least to catch up with everyone one more time and tie up all loose ends. If you enjoy a relaxing fall read, love historical fiction and are also a big fan of quilting, this is the perfect book for you.

I loved this book! I only wish that I had read the first one first. I couldn't put the book down part of me wanted her to choose Colby and the other part wanted her to choose Evan Parker. I'm glad with her choice. This is a book you can read over and over. I fell in love with the characters!

I read the first book of this series and was very excited to read the second. I really enjoyed this book. Although I was pretty sure who Maggie would end up with early on, the book was still had some unexpected turns. It really shows that what we want isn't always what God wants for us. Also, I liked the fact that the story line from the first book was continued in this one. I hope there is a third book to this series. I really want to find out what happens to everyone.

Quilting is an art and this author understands what it takes to do this. Thestory is a lesson of learning that often wefocus on the wrong thing.

As a mediocre quilter, I can relate to Maggie's frustrations. Though you are quite sure she will eventually will be with Evan, (I am only half through the book), it is still a question if she marries Colby or Evan. Evan certainly is a better choice and as a Christian will be a favorite.

This book is good. It is kind of predictable but a great book none the less. The books in this series are definitely Christian, light hearted fun books to read.

I liked this book even more than the first in the series! The characters are so well thought out and presented that I feel almost as if they are my family history - the "plot" is a little more deep than the first, but resolved in an entertaining and meaningful manner. I am looking forward to the next one!

I have enjoyed both books in this series. I liked how Maggie's stitching improved after her grandmother helped her. She was determined to show Colby's mom that she was worthy of her son. Want to read book 3 in the series as Im sure there will be one.
