Litfuse Review: Swept Away by:Laura Hilton/Cindy Loven

 Swept Away (Quilts of Love)
About the Book:
Sara doesn’t think she wants love. But her grandmother has other plans.

Sara Jane Morgan is trying to balance teaching with caring for her ailing, stubborn grandmother. When school lets out for the summer, the plans are for Grandma to teach Sara Jane to quilt as they finish up the Appalachian Ballad quilt Grandma started as a teenager. But things don’t always go as planned.

Andrew Stevenson is hiding from his past—and his future. He works as a handyman to pay the bills, but his heart is as an artisan, designing homemade brooms. When Sara Jane’s grandmother hires him to renovate her home, sparks fly between Drew and his new employer’s granddaughter.

Still, it doesn’t take Sara Jane long to see Drew isn’t what he seems. Questions arise, and she starts researching him online. What she discovers could change her life—and her heart—forever.

My Review:
 Sara Jane Morgan, lost sight of her dear grandmother for a split second and as a result they have a scruffy handyman at their home. Andrew Stevenson, a professional broom maker has found himself working for a little old lady and her snooty granddaughter, fixing odd and end things for them around their home.

 As Andrew starts his work there, he starts to notice that he and Sara are put together a lot. It seems that this pairing is done by Sara's grandmother. This grandmother has definitely got a plan in place for the two of them, it seems.

 While learning to quilt her thoughts drift back to Andrew and before long she is wanting to learn more and more about this man. Finding an old online journal, she starts to dig deep into his past. But what she finds isn't exactly something he was willing to share. What Sara finds will change everything between the two of them, maybe for good.

 The authors of Swept Away, give you a cozy read with down home appeal. It's not long before you are transported there, right along side, Sari, Sara, and Drew.
