This book was so good! It was a fast read that had just the right amount of drama and romance to keep you turning the pages. This book is a stand alone.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were great and I loved the story. I loved the Mom who wanted her son to marry and all the reasons why. I loved the story and the way it lowed. It was an easy read. I know this is #2 in a series, but you can read this one separately.

A Quilter for Quint is a quick summer read.  Ms. Carroll-Bradd involves the unusual, but true side of Texas, the heat, the scorpions, the rattle snakes, etc.  But, the main story line is sweet in that Melisande heads to the unknown to become a wife of a man who did not know she was coming.  Quint tries to make the best of a situation not of his making.   Melisande and he determine to move forward politely as Melisande gets to know his son and the rest of his family. 

This is a thoroughly enjoyable read with a touch of romance, a touch of Texas, a touch of family, hers and his, a touch of faith and a touch of danger.  It did seem like the ‘danger’ toward the end was wrapped up a bit too quickly (No spoiler here) and could have used a bit more dialogue between the secondary characters and the H/h.  Yet, it is still a great novella to sideline your summer reading.

A QUILTER FOR QUINT by Linda Carroll-Bradd

This is book 2 in the Mail-order Mamas series.  It is a stand-alone.  A mail-order mama is a woman who arranges for a bride for her son.

Melisande (Meli), a Rhode Island native is scared that her mother will try to rule her life forever if she marries a local man.  She takes the plunge and agrees to marry Quinton (Quint) from southern Texas.  Her mother is friends with a Texas matchmaker who sets up the marriage.

Quint's young son Gabrio is in cahoots with Quint's mother in getting a new mama.  Gabrio needs a mama and Quint has no intention of ever marrying again and setting himself up for the pain that comes from the loss of a most special person.  Quint's mother and son do not mention that there is a mail-order bride on her way to their ranch.  Quint has been lead to believe that Meli is a friend of his mother's that is coming to stay with them for a while.

Meli is just as shocked as Quint is when she arrives and finds that Quint has no idea of why she is there.  Where will their lives lead?  Gabrio is over the moon with happiness, telling everyone that Meli is his new mama.  Meli creates beautiful quilt panels that tell a story.  Highly recommend it.

I received this book for an honest review from netgalley #netgalley

I thought this book was really cute wasn't quite what I was looking for. But that had everything to do with me and not the book.

Delightful story and for those who it bothers; a clean romance.  Melisande has got fed up with her mother trying to find her a husband and she realises that if she lives close by, her mother will continually interfere.  She  learns of a marriage maker who is looking for a wife for the rancher Quint.  Actually it's his mother that realises he needs a new wife.  Widower Quint has a young son and his mother, though devoted would also like to spend time with her other grandchildren.  

I'd have liked a bit more interaction between Quint and Melisande but it's still a lovely story.  Linda is a new author to me so I shall look out for more of her work. 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Not sure why, as it is never really explained, but Melisande, a rich woman from the east coast gets to pick between three eligible husbands to be and picks the farthest one, who is in Texas. Enduring a two week trip, and then finding out Quinton has no idea she is coming to be his six year old's new mama, naturally things are a bit tense. Enjoyable and quick read, perfect for summer reading. Didn't see the point of the bigot military man, but otherwise enjoyed this book and would recommend it and the author.

When Gabrio's mother died after his birth, his father, Quinton never even thought about moving on with his life because his mother took care of his son. Then Gabrio asked his grandmother for a mother of his own which was why she decided to take matters on her own hands and consulted one of her old matchmaker friend to find her son a wife. Meanwhile, Melisande's family wanted her to choose a husband from the three choices she'd been given. She chose Quinton to get away from her hometown and went to Texas to meet her new husband-to-be who had no idea about his mother's scheme until his mother told him. She was so shocked finding herself in between Quinton's mother and the matchmaker's scheme. But she decided to give Quinton a chance. Most of her time were occupied by the little boy, Gabrio. Her and Quinton's relationship developed as well and after a bit of problem in paradise, Quinton finally had the balls to tie the knot.

I dunno this book felt really bland to me.

After losing his wife to illness, Quinton never wanted to marry again. However, a pretty face, sweet spirit, and loveable woman might change his mind.

A Quilter for Quint is such a sweet story about moving on after loss and learning to love again. I really enjoyed reading about the characters’ lives and getting immersed in the world for this series. I’d like to venture out and check out other books in this series as well.
