Amazon shipped A Bride Sews with Love in Needles, California this past week.
This sweet story by Erica Vetsch is the latest in Barbour’s Destination Romances line, a line Erica helped launch with A Bride’s Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas. I enjoyed Erica’s first Bride book and was eager for her second.
About the Book
When her brother is injured fighting in France, Meghan enlists her fellow Harvey Girl waitresses to sew a Red Cross signature quilt to raise money for wounded doughboys. Local horse breeder Caleb McBride longs to join the battle, but the army won’t take him. Because he has kept his shameful infirmity a secret, the townsfolk have labeled him a coward and war profiteer. When Meghan uncovers his malady, her poor opinion of Caleb unravels. Can this beautiful seamstress find a way to mend his heart?

In a word, A Bride Sews with Love in Needles, California is wonderful! Erica Vetsch has created compelling characters I cared for from the start. I enjoyed every minute spent with impassioned but impulsive Meghan and brave but burdened Caleb. This well-written story is rich in historical detail and will engage the emotions at every turn. Erica did a great job capturing the hostile environment of Needles, California. Learning more about the life of a Harvey girl was fun. I highly recommend Erica’s latest release.
