The Christmas Quilt (Shadow Lake #3) by Lenora Worth


As the holidays approach, Collette King is eager for Matthew Mueller’s return to Shadow Lake. Especially now that she has finally surrendered to the truth—that the friend she has known forever, the first man she ever kissed, is the one she longs to spend her life with. So when Mattie shows up at her sister’s wedding with another woman on his arm, Collette’s hopes are shattered. To heal her broken heart, she begins a quilt honoring her memories of Mattie. But every square she adds only makes her yearn for him more . . .

Matthew’s new inheritance comes with a lot of responsibilities—including his late-uncle’s deathbed request that he marry the woman who was his ward. But from the moment Mattie sees Collette again, he wishes he could escape his familial duty, even though doing so could bring scandal upon his
mamm and daed. Will his desire to protect his parents cost him the life—and the love—he dreams of? Or can faith work a Christmas miracle that blesses all.

My Review

 This is the third book in this series, and as with the others, one of the sisters is urged to make a quilt that represents her relationship with the man of her dreams.

This is King sister Colette's story and her long time admirer Mathew Muller, as the book opens Colette thinks she and Maddie are engaged, but then he arrives with a young Amish woman on his arm, you are in for a page turner to find answers.

This read does have some disturbing things in it, but the author does a great job with this sensitive topic, and it does lead to an opening of old wounds, and hopefully to some healing.

There is also a deathbed promise, along with danger from a disturbed individual, but I was quickly page turning, and obstacles are thrown in the path of these people!

In the end I enjoyed this read, and wished there were more sisters to follow!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
