Lauraine Snelling, author of the DAUGHTERS OF BLESSINGS series "A Stitch in Time is a witty look at an all-too-flawed woman in search of perfection, and boy, could I relate to her! A wonderful read."
Angela Hunt, author of The Novelist "Allison Bottke pens a wonderful tale of forgiveness and reconciliation. A Stitch in Time takes the reader through a lifestyle few have experienced first-hand, while dealing with emotions and day to day conflicts familiar to us all. This book is sure to please."
Tracie Peterson, author of HEIRS OF MONTANA and What She Left for Me "Breakout novelist Allison Bottke will gain hordes of fans with the first of (what we can hope to be) many novels! From the first page, you'll not want to put this one down. . . . A Stitch in Time proves that we are all hungry for more of God, no matter where we come from or what we do. A must read!"
Eva Marie Everson, coauthor of The Potluck Club "Slip into the pages of this high-fashion treat and escape into a world where true beauty shines past the glitz of glamour and into your heart."
Linda Evans Shepherd, coauthor of The Potluck Club, host of Right to the Heart Radio, founder of AWSA "Allison Bottke's debut novel sings like a well-loved song. I laughed and cried. The characters are so real I felt as though I had made a new set of friends."
Tracey Bateman, author of Leave it to Claire "If one could mesh the modern sophistication of Vera Wang and the fun, boldness of Tommy Hilfiger into words, you'd come close to A Stitch in Time. I found myself totally wrapped up in the characters and had a hard time putting this book down. Ms. Bottke's first novel introduces an exuberant, fresh voice to fiction, and I'm eager to read more from this talented novelist!"
Tricia Goyer, author of the award-winning novel, Night Song "What a delight! Allison Bottke has given us a heroine who is endearing, flawed, funny, and wise as she attacks life, dealing with family, business, and her new, deeply felt faith. I highly recommend A Stitch in Time."
Gayle Roper, Allah's Fire "Allison Bottke sets the standard for excellence and keeps readers coming back for more!"
Debra White Smith, author of THE AUSTEN SERIES "Intelligent. Witty. Real. Energetic. Fascinating. Life-changing. All of these characteristics of Allison's debut novel make it some of the best fiction I've read in a long time."
Heather Gemmen, author of Startling Beauty "As a Southern California fundraising consultant, I found Dee Decker's fictional journey to be filled with a hearty and entertaining combination of fact and fantasy. Allison has penned the journey of one determined woman through the joys and perils of non-profit fundraising while battling her own personal spiritual challenges in a touching and amusing fashion . . . A fun read throughout!"
Sharon Esterley, Esterley Events "Allison has done a wonderful job in combining real-life issues of weight loss surgery with a fictional character. The story of Dee Decker is as informative as it is entertaining."
Monica Ganz, Ph.D., Director of Events and Support Groups for ObesityHelp, Inc. "Issues of self-worth and personal image drive the characters, but it's Allison Bottke's attention to detail that will keep you turning pages."
Sue Buchanan, author/speaker "Bottke takes the reader on an intimate journey of betrayal, forgiveness, and self-discovery with Dee, a successful, social-climbing wife and mother who, through difficult circumstances, learns who she is and what she really values. Written with realism and compassion, the novel explores the challenges of life after weight loss surgery and the amazing transformations in body and mind the procedure brings. In Dee, we see the common frailties of human nature and the power of convictions to bring us full circle in life and love." Tammy J. Colter, Editor-In-Chief, OH Magazine, ObesityHelp.com "A Stitch in Time is glitter, glamour, glory and grace all wrapped up in a fashionable, flamboyant package of spell-binding reading that puts you in the middle of the society scene, the faith walk, and the grace of forgiveness."
Thelma Wells, president of A Woman of God Ministries
