What I’m Reading: The Patchwork Bride

I burned an Audible credit and got the book The Patchwork Bride by Sandra Dallas.  She has long been a favorite author of mine so when I saw new book, I had to get it.

The book was good.  Nothing that I would call a “must read” but good.  I think there was suppose to be a “twist” but I caught on pretty much right away.  It still wasn’t a bad book though.  If you’re someone who wants some light reading with a happy book, this one is perfect.

Here’s what Amazon had to say:Ellen is putting the finishing touches on a wedding quilt made from scraps of old dresses when the bride-to-be―her granddaughter June―unexpectedly arrives and announces she’s calling off the marriage. With the tending of June’s uncertain heart in mind, Ellen tells her the story of Nell, a Kansas-born woman who goes to the High Plains of New Mexico Territory in 1898 in search of a husband.

Working as a biscuit-shooter, Nell falls for a cowboy named Buddy. She sees a future together, but she can’t help wondering if his feelings for her are true. When Buddy breaks her heart, she runs away.

In her search for a soul mate, Nell will run away from marriage twice more before finding the love of her life. It’s a tale filled with excitement, heartbreak, disappointment, and self-discovery―as well as with hard-earned life lessons about love. Another stunning, emotional novel from a master storyteller.

Amazon readers gave the book 4.5 stars.  That was more than I would have given.  I’d give 4.2 stars.  I’ve liked many of her other books better.  If you’re looking for the best ones Alice’s Tulips, The Diary of Mattie Spencer, The Persian Pickle Club, and Tallgrass are my favorites.

  1. You got me hooked on Linda Castillo books and I’m so glad you did! I had a terrible time waiting for the holds at our library. I listen to audiobooks because I can stitch (counted cross stitch) while listening to them. They’re so good, you hate to finish them. Thanks for the introduction!

  2. I’ve read Alice’s Tulips and The Persian Pickle Club and enjoyed them both. a little prairie “history” with a story sounds fun!
