Cobbled Court Quilts Series

by Marie Bostwick

This book is on SALE AT AMAZON (link above) for only $2.51!!

I started reading this series as I recovered from my own surgery dealing with breast cancer.  The theme of the books is not breast cancer though so don't worry LOL! I've read all but the last one in this series which I'm starting tonight and they've been excellent and enjoyable reads. Not heavy or depressing reads at all but about the power of women, friends and life changes.  Hope you enjoy them too!

Marie Bostwick weaves the unforgettable story of four very different women whose paths cross, changing their lives forever. . . .


Other Good Reads if you need suggestions:

they are available for Kindle, Nook and in real book style (lol)



WELCOME!!!  If you love books and reading AND love to craft then this group is for you. I dreamed it up a bit ago because these are both my favorite hobbies and whenever I have time you find me doing one or the other--so why not combine the two?


We will read a NEW book every month (the first of every month will be our New Book Announcement) and have discussions and chatter at the group during that time about the book selection and just about crafting and reading.  You can share books you like, recommend or hated with us all-----we want to hear!

We will also have a Book Party will be the first of each month and we will talk about the book, and giveaway some fun prizes. You can attend the party and join the group EVEN if you don't finish/read the book --everyone is welcome!

Reading The Rosie Project right now ... it's quirky but fun.  I'm looking forward to this month's selection!

Comment by Tracie Clary on March 2, 2014 at 9:33am

Yep - The only good thing about this weather is that it is good for staying in and reading.  Thanks Suzanne.  Another great month.

These are the Days of Elijah by Kendall - for inspiration, just opened The Perfume Collector and just finished Elizabeth Street by Fabiano.  Running a little behind - short month!  Thanks Suzanne - I think I'll be able to catch up this month!  

I appreciate the time that you take to keep us reading! Thank you so very much!

Thanks for putting the March reads up!  I too will be reading lots in the next few days or weeks.  It is -39 with the wind chill here in Edmonton.  Somebody save me please!! 

Comment by Suzanne Dean on March 1, 2014 at 11:20pm

Hope you enjoyed Feb's selection a lot!!  All of her books were excellent!

March's selection is now up along with a few others I just finished and loved if you need some more. Given that I am going to be snowed in AGAIN and have had some surgery I am reading up a storm LOL!

What's on your nightstand for reading right now????

Comment by Joy Hadden on February 16, 2014 at 6:51pm

I agree with Rose Mary!  Suzanne knows how to pick the good ones! -- and there is a lot to choose from out there!

Comment by Rose Mary Martin on February 16, 2014 at 5:35pm

Oh, yes, they were good! I felt like I knew the characters, liked most of them, rooted for many of them, and was disappointed that I'd never see any of them again. Loved watching the developing relationships. Great reads.

Comment by Suzanne Dean on February 16, 2014 at 5:09pm

Awesome Rose Mary...they were good right?  All of Karen White's books are awesome :)  Happy Reading!

Comment by Rose Mary Martin on February 16, 2014 at 4:24pm

Well, Suzanne, I spent the snow days reading the Tradd Street books and finished all 4 in 3 days and nights. LOL Now to get started on something else. Decisions, decisions. ;-)  Thanks for the suggestions. You're batting 100% so far.
