A review by cozylittlebrownhouse
The Quilter's Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini


Wow, did this book just OOZE cheese. I enjoyed learning about quilting, as I have a fascination with reading about crafting of any sort, but it was difficult for me to relate to the terminology and quilting designs featured in the story.

The main character, Sarah, moves to a new town with her husband Matt and quickly falls into a "job" (I use that term loosely) and a quilting group that both enable her quick and fabulous friendships. Her chats with her employer were probably the worst part of the book for me - while the author used these visits to tie the past to current town events, the segues were just horrific and I found myself laughing like I do with the ones used on newscasts.

This book was a cozy mystery without the mystery. I upgraded my rating to a 2.5 because I am willing to give book two a shot to see where the story goes. If you're looking for something heartwarming and easy to read, this might be the book series for you.
