When TV producer Carly McKay goes to interview a psychic quiltmaker, Brandywine Seaver, she has no idea that her life is about to change completely ... until, that is, Brandy gives her a reading on a quilt she's made for Carly.
Carly doesn't believe in psychics, but when her TV show closes down, her runaway mother returns after 17 years and her best (male) friend tells her he's been in love with her for years, she returns to the arty town of Bilby to ask Brandy what the hell's going on.
Partly due to the town's charms (not least sexy neighbour, Will) and partly because she's afraid to go home, Carly finds herself making a life in Bilby, but when the quilt inspires her to make things right and get back what she's lost, Carly's forced to risk everything she's found.
I have to say I was a little surprised that I picked this book - it's about a quiltmaker after all! But I started reading it and was so engaged in the story, it was extremely hard to put down. If I did not have to go to bed and work the next morning, I would have stayed up all night to finish it. It is a very believable story and some parts were quite hilarious. If you want to get away from your world a little bit and experience a little believable magic, definitely grab this book!
This is a cute book. The premise is bit more original than your average chick lit, and the story is a bit deeper as well. There is a little bit of romance, but also some family surprises and self discovery. Overall, I found this to be a light, engaging read.
