A Quilter's Holiday

A Quilter's Holiday by Jennifer Chiaverini

This is the 15th book in the Elm Creek Quilts series.

This book sees the Elm Creek Quilters gather the day after Thanksgiving for their annual Quilt-a-thon and potluck lunch. With a storm closing in, it looks as if everyone will need to spend the night rather than return home. As the day progresses, each member recalls what they are thankful for, but new challenges and problems are hiding in the wings.

For me this was a bit of a scene setting book. Several things are bought up thorough out the book that I can see Chiaverini exploring further in subsequent books, such as Matt's father wanting Matt to take over the family business, the blossoming romance between Anna and Jeremy and Sylvia's continued search into her family history.  On the whole, another enjoyable read.
