Pattern for Romance by Carla Olson Gade ~ CFBA Tour & Review

Pattern for Romance (Quilts of Love #8)Lucie's Review:

Honour Metcalf is skilled with needlework and she takes on the task of making a intricate wedding quilt, but when Honour is falsely accused of thievery he character is called into question. Joshua Sutton, a merchant tailor comes to her aid, and stands by her side as the gossips talk behind her back.

There was a lot of drama in this book, and many plot twists that kept me entertained, and wondering if anything would ever go right for poor Honour.

There was a good cast of characters, Honour's sister Temperance was so cute! And Joshua was a good honorable man who always believed Honour and stood by her when things got bad.

Honour was a good heroine with such a positive attitude and great work ethic! I loved how she was thankful for what she was given.

Overall this was a great book with a complex plot and a lot going on! The characters were great and the quilt theme fit well into the story. So it was definitely a good book well worth the read.
