It is still a good series, this one just lacked content.
1. Based upon the marketing of this book, I expected it to be primarily an Elm Creek NOVEL, with added recipes. However, it is the opposite- I would estimate that 75% of the book is a cookbook, with the remainder being a short story.
2. The plot does not really advance the primary story of the Elm Creek Quilters. It is really a day in the life of Sylvia and Anna, with Sylvia relating past tales of Elm Creek Manor.
3. This is NOT a book for a new reader to the series. There's not enough free standing plot.
1. While I have not tried out the recipes yet, they were developed by an accomplished chef/food writer. They appear to be relatively easy to follow, and produce an appetizing product. I look forward to trying them.
2. The added backstory adds to the overall character development.
This is a recipe book with a short story. If you purchase it with this in mind, it is enjoyable. Just don't make my mistake assume it is primarily a novel.
Maybe if they new the stories behind a quillt they got as a gift. They would love it more & take care of it better. I believe that what this series brings out into the open is not just a good story but what quilting is all about.

I wish I had read the reviews before spending $11.99 for this book. There was very little story, but a lot of recipes. Not what I was expecting from Jennifer Chiaverini.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
I like the Elm Quilt stories but found this one to more of a cookbook than a novel. I was disappointed and admit that I skimmed most of the recipes in search of the story.Published 4 months ago by Beth Dumala

This was a little bit different for Jennifer. It told some stories so Anna could get to know the people of Elm Creek. The best part was the recipes at the end of chapter. Read morePublished 8 months ago by R. Evans
I was disappointed in how little story was included in this book and that it was mostly recipes. I normally enjoy culinary fiction. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Laura Beller
