New from Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series | Masterpiece Marriage
He wants to save his business. She wants to be a professor. But are they asking for more than they can really have?
After a flood damages the looms at Zenus Dane’s Philadelphia textile
mill and the bank demands loan payment, Zenus turns to his aunt for help
repurposing his textiles. Trouble is . . . his aunt has already been
hired by the lovely yet secretive Englishwoman Mary Varrs.
Eager to acquire his aunt’s quilt patterns, Zenus attends the summer
Quilting Bee, a social event his aunt has uniquely designed with the
secret purpose of finding Zenus a wife. However Zenus only has eyes for
Mary, but Mary has no such desire for him.
Though his aunt is determined to design a masterpiece marriage, both
Zenus and Mary will have to overcome their stubborn ways. Can he realize
that love requires stepping out of his routine? And will she recognize
that following her heart doesn’t mean sacrificing her ambition?

Another wonderful book in the Quilts of Love series.
This book is full of fun quirky characters...a manipulative aunt and a town full of gossiping women...sounds a lot like this book could be written in this time period, doesn't it? Only it's not. In this story you'll step back in time to the late 1800's. Zenus has taken quite the hit when his fabric mill becomes flooded and has to ask his aunt for a favor, a favor that has quite a few conditions.
Mary, she has her own agenda and finds herself at odds when she finds that 'aunt' Mary is not only going to help her, but Zenus as well.
A fun read made quite entertaining by the characters you can't help but love!
