Wrapped up in Christmas

Okay quilting gals, this one is for you!

 Wrapped Up In Christmas

Janice Lynn and Hallmark Publishing has produced a heartwarming story about a soldier who receives a Quilts of Valor quilt while he is recovering in a military hospital. Broken in mind, body and spirit, the quilt gives him a sense of hope when he thought all hope was gone. He sets out to find the little old lady who made the quilt and thank her. What he finds is not a little old lady, but a young, lively woman who loves her community and church.

Sarah Smith has had her own heart broken. By her aunt Jenny who passed away, and a boyfriend who left. She dives into renovating Aunt Jenny's house into a Bed and Breakfast. Advertising for a handyman, she immediately hires Bodie Lewis when he shows up at the community center.

Sarah's love of all things Christmas enchants Bodie, who as a career military man, never had time for celebrating. But an IED put an end to Bodie's career, and he is moving on. Bodie is leaving, and Sarah is staying. The tug of hearts makes for a complicated relationship. And with the meddling matchmaker Butterflies, things get pretty interesting.

Janice Lynn has written such a poignant story, sprinkled with humor and budding love. This is my first novel by Ms. Lynn. I will definitely be reading more of her books.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Net Galley and the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.

Oh, sounds like a great book!! I love when books incorporate quilts and the emotions they evoke.

I'll have to look for this book, especially since I've been sewing for Quilts of Valor for over a decade.
