Amazon.com Review

This collection of short stories revolves around a wedding quilt. Jennifer Blake starts the stories off with "Pieces of Dreams." It's 1843 and a wedding quilt is being stitched for bride Melly Bennington. But is she in love with the man she is promised to, or is it his twin brother who captures her heart? JoAnn Cassity introduces us to Walker McGregor and Annie O'Neil in, "Forever Annie." Walker and Annie, opposing general store owners, want the wedding quilt for their own good reasons. Will the special quilt bring them together or tear them apart? Linda Shertzer takes the reader to 1893 Missouri in "Hand-Me-Down Hearts." Cora McGregor bequeaths young widow Elise Barker and her two children a few pieces of furniture and an old quilt. Her brother Ryder McGregor wants his priceless family heirlooms returned. Will Elise return them or will Ryder take her love instead? Christinia Cordaire starts "A Ring For Remembrance" in 1990, but it isn't long before Sara Blake finds herself back in the 1840s. Will helping two people in love, help Sara's own love life in the 90s? Save The Quilting Circle for a special day. You won't be able to put it down.

The Quilting Circle is composed of 4 separate stories.

Pieces of Dreams by Jennifer Blake takes place in Good Hope, Missouri. The story begins in the year 1846, where a group of young women are working on a wedding quilt for their friend Melly who is soon to marry Caleb. When Caleb's twin brother, Conrad arrives in town the young bride becomes confused and wonders if she's marrying the right twin!

Forever Annie by JoAnne Cassity is the story of a young widow by the name of Annie O'Neil who runs a store in the town of Whiskey, Missouri. It's the year 1853. Annie attends an auction when a beautiful quilt is offered. She is outbid by Walker McGregor another store owner. She's furious because this has happened before where he had outbid her and Annie's is sure that he just wants to be mean. Of course, there's more to the story!

In Hand- Me- Down Hearts by Linda Shertzer, we're still in Whiskey, Missouri, the year is now 1893. Elise Barker is talking with her children about how generous Cora McGregor was to leave the widowed Elise and her two children a beautiful warm quilt, an 1810 bedstead and 2 Duncan Phyfe chairs. Elise had worked for Cora McGregor and the two women were close friends. One evening shortly after Cora had died, a man came to Elise Barker's door. He was rude and loud. His name was Ryder McGregor and he was Cora's younger brother. Ryder is unpleasant and feels that Elise took advantage of his sister. He seems to be a very cold and angry man. Elise suspects that some event in his life had made him very bitter.

The last story is a Ring for Remembrance by Christina Cordaire and takes place in 1996. Sara Blake is a young woman who happens to be a curator and is in the process of preparing for a quilt exhibit.

I'm not that into this kind of romance. The story lines were good though. I did keep wondering about the historical aspect of the stories.

Not what I expected. Hot and heavy is not what I want in a story with the title the Quilting Circle.
