A Quilt for Christmas by Melody Carlson.

Book Blurb

Christmas should be celebrated with family. But for Vera Swanson, that’s not an option this year. Widowed and recently relocated, she is lonely in her condo-for-one–until little Fiona Albright knocks on her door needing help. With her mother seriously ill and her father out of town, Fiona enlists Vera’s help, and when she finds out her new neighbor is a quilter, she has a special request–a Christmas quilt for Mama.

Vera will have to get a ragtag group of women together in order to fulfill the request. Between free-spirited artist Tasha, chatty empty nester Beverly, retired therapist Eleanor, and herself, Vera has hopes that Christmas for the Albright family will be merry, after all–and she may find herself a new family of friends along the way.

Bestselling and award-winning author Melody Carlson invites you to cuddle up this holiday season with this cozy story of giving, forgiving, and a little bit of romance.

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book from JustRead Tours. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


A Quilt for Christmas is Melody Carlson‘s latest Christmas novella.

I love a good Christmas romance, and have enjoyed the past couple Christmas novellas that I’ve read by this author. However, I was a little nervous about A Quilt for Christmas because this didn’t seem like a romance, and I was in the mood for a sweet Christmas romance.

Wow. I had no need to worry! The little bit of romance was a delight, but the overall story was amazing!! And I totally teared up multiple times. Honestly, how I didn’t full on cry toward the end, I’m not sure. This was an incredible little story.

If you’re looking for a Christmas novella with all the Christmas feels, then definitely grab a copy of A Quilt for Christmas. It was wonderful!
