Crewel Work (The Tapestry Series) (Volume 1) Paperback – October 11, 2014
About the Author
I write stories about romance. They center on learning about the characters backgrounds, personalities and life circumstances that mold them into who they are and how they love. I am a sassy 40-something year old. I live in a quiet farming town in New England with my husband of fifteen years and our three rescued cats. After college I facilitated improvement in the physical abilities of children and the elderly then took the opportunity to enjoy my creative side. I love to sew, knit, write...sing and drink martinis (not necessarily at the same time).

J.P maybe a young man in his early 20’s but he is more adult for his years in giving a 16 year old time to grow up. He was very patient even when he really wanted to give in to his wants and needs. He knew how to show respect to women and to her father. I felt like he really cared for her and didn’t care about what her father had, yes he was concerned about his job but I never felt like it was more important. I felt he wanted to do what was best for Audra when most men his age would have taken what they wanted while being sneaky.
Audra was a sweetie young girl who fell for the trainer who broke her heart. She wanted to be an adult but still had those little girl feelings. She is your normal everyday girl who gets confused about how emotions get mixed up with adult feelings. I thought she was cute and enjoyed watching her grow up to be an outstanding woman.
Her father and brothers were a delight one being over protective why the others gave her the support that she needed. The author gave you a few twists and turns. I thought it was a great read however I did feel at time a little too much information was given and at other times not enough. For me the ending was cut off I would have liked to have known a few things one being what happen to Eddie the other seeing a little more about their future. However since this is a series we might find the answers as we go along. I give this a 3.75 rounding it up to a 4.
This is the first time I have read anything by this author it was a story I did enjoy with great characters. I do not usually read books about characters at such young ages. At times I did find my mind wondering but the author did bring me back. I thought the author did a great job with the plot and found the story could have happen in real life. If you like a story about very young first love than give this author a try you might just fall in love with her writing style and find a new favorite author.
A good amount of time lapse in the story to encompass Audra's coming-of-age. I'd have liked a bit less time passage, or at least a time compression of the course of events, in order to get more fleshed-out character detail, because they were really very engaging characters placed in a setting that was very easy to sink into. .
The love story was very sweet, which was in keeping with the whole CoA theme, and I liked that Audra was strong enough to know that what she wanted was worth waiting for. I might have been less inclined to bow to the paternal pressures than she was, but I get the dynamic existed, and still exists.
J.P. proves that chivalry, or the contemporary western equivalent, remains strong. This young man started out an old soul, and largely accepted the father's hands-off dictates initially because of his career, but ultimately because of his respect for both father and daughter. But gawd bless the age of majority! Just sayin'...
The requisite bad guy was no mystery, but he did manage to add drama to the story, and quite opposite to his intent, helped to secure the relationship with J.P. and Audra...not to mention, help bring Dad along.
A sweet story with a heart of gold. Or horses. Yah, with a heart of horses...much better anyway!
