Between Heaven and Texas By Marie Bostwick GIVEAWAY!

In this luminous prequel to her beloved Cobbled Court Quilts series, New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick takes readers into the heart of a small Texas town and the soul of a woman who discovers her destiny there. . .
Welcome to Too Much--where the women are strong-willed and the men are handsome yet shiftless. Ever since Mary Dell Templeton and her twin sister Lydia Dale were children, their Aunt Velvet has warned them away from local boys. But it's well known that the females in Mary Dell's family have two traits in common--superior sewing skills and a fatal weakness for men.
While Lydia Dale grows up petite and pretty, Mary Dell just keeps growing. Tall, smart, and sassy, she is determined to one day turn her love of sewing into a business. Meanwhile, she'll settle for raising babies with her new husband, Donny. But that dream proves elusive too, until finally, Mary Dell gets the son she always wanted--a child as different as he is wonderful. And as Mary Dell is forced to reconsider what truly matters in her family and her marriage, she begins to piece together a life that, like the colorful quilts she creates, will prove vibrant, rich, and absolutely unforgettable. . .

I was born and raised in the Northwest. However, as an adult, I've had eighteen addresses in eight US states and two cities in Mexico. Now I live in rural Connecticut, in a town very similar to the fictional village of New Bern, the setting of the popular Cobbled Court Quilt novels. So far, I've written ten books, five in the Cobbled Court Quilt series. A quilter myself for twenty-five years, I enjoy dabbling in all quilting styles but work mostly in traditional and foundation piecing. When not home writing, I can often be found speaking at national quilt shows and quilt guilds around the country.

I have to say that I loved Marie's book Between Heaven and Texas, it is a fun uplifting read. It is the prequel to Cobbled Court Quilts series. Do you like to wrap up in a homemade quilt and read a great book? This is the book for you!
The characters are like family, and you can't get enough of them, Mary Dell was the best! You will be thinking about them long after you finish the last page.
The love and humor in this book it was just what I needed.
I highly recommend this fantastic book.
I give this book 5 stars.
