The Tapestry in the Attic
The Tapestry In The Attic #18 - Mary O'Donnell

This is the only book I read in November but at least it was better than the last one.  This one had a lot more thought out detail so it was more interesting.  

 

Annie always admired this little tapestry on the wall of her grandmother's house.  Even after she moved in she never moved it.  She always wondered about the strange signature with Roman numerals surrounded by the same initials.  

 

One day at the Stitch In Time's needlework group meeting Stella had a huge announcement to make.  She said a professor was coming to Stony Point to put on a play involving local students and members of the community.  She encouraged everyone to get involved and use their special talents to help in some way.  This play was about the virtuous wife portrayed in Proverbs 31 in the Bible and was written by a man who grew up in Stony Point.  He had recently lost his wife and wrote the play to honor her.  Annie and her friends went to look around in her attic to see what they could find anything that might fit with the time period.  They pulled out a couple rugs to see if they could be used and found a large tapestry rolled up with one of the rugs.  She knew when she saw the initials that it was by the same artist who created the small one on the wall in the living room.  It seemed to fit with the verse so she thought it might work well for the play but she was curious why something so beautiful was kept hidden in the attic like that.  She thought maybe her grandmother hid it for a reason and that she should just take care of it and not let it be damaged by using it in the play.  When the others saw it they all pressured her to use it for the play so Annie decided she would but she got some friends to help her design a special frame to display it and she learned how to protect it from dust and light.  One day when she went in to show it to some friends she was shocked to find it was gone and only the frame was left.  She was baffled how anyone could have taken it from the locked room at the theater.  When she said she was planning to go to the university to learn more about the artist she ended up getting hurt when something fell on her head.  It wasn't an accident and the police were worried that the two incidents were related. They warned Annie to be careful but she wouldn't stop trying to learn about the artist and who would have stolen the canvas and why.

Release Day Review! Christina's Tapestry (Tapestries #1) N.J. Walters!
Christina's Tapestry - N.J. Walters

 

 

Captivated by a lush tapestry she sees in a shop window, Christina Beaumont impulsively buys it, never imagining how that one action will change her life. The magical tapestry not only transports her to a world that resembles medieval Earth, but also into the arms of two massive warriors who both want to claim her.

 

Jarek and Marc, brothers of the House of Garen, are elated to discover the tapestry has delivered Christina to them, but ancient tradition dictates that they must compete for the right to be her husband. Both separately and together, the two will indulge Christina in every sensual way possible, taking her to passionate heights beyond even her most intense fantasies.

 

As the time for Christina to choose between the two men draws near, she is confronted with another option: she can return to her own modern world. Fearing their loss, Jarek and Marc will join forces to convince Christina to stay with them, even as they fight a rival family for the right to keep her as their very own . . . This is a revised edition of a previous published book.

 


Oooh, la, la, just wait until you hear what I have to tell you... I just had a sensational sensually stimulating visit to the past where I met the strong and captivating Jarek, Marc and Christina. These delighted me with their magical romance full of temptation and some really hot and sexy love scenes including menage scenes. The relationship itself was a bit slow in catching up to the sizzling chemistry that burned between these characters but hey who can blame Christina for being a bit slow on the uptake when she just got yanked from her time and place and dropped right in the laps of two super sexy warriors, who by their very natures would turn any red-blooded woman's brain to mush. I could certainly connect with her and the two warriors as they explained the prophecy concerning the tapestry and why there romance had to move at such a fast pace.

 

Which kept things hot and steamy throughout and had me glued to the magical pages and N.J. Walters brought the story to such vivid life that I could practically smell the fresh air and I pictures each and every scene as they happened and let me tell you, that I was quite flushed by the time Christina made her decision about whether to stay or to go home. I will definitely be awaiting the release of the next Tapestry series romance, meanwhile I think I will be on the lookout for my very own 'tapestry'.

Thérèse Makes a Tapestry
Thérèse Makes a Tapestry - Alexandra S.D. Hinrichs,Renée Graef ** I received a free e-galley from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

Cover: Beautiful!
Rating 5 Charming Stars
Characters: Well Written
Plot: Thérèse makes a gift for her father
Overall: Well thought out, and masterfully written!
Recommend? Yes!

Short Review:
The cover is what caught my attention. I have always loved the painted look, (The Story of the Candy Cane was my favorite as a child!) This book didn't disappoint. Transporting the reader into a different time and place with beautiful pictures, and a master of words. Both a history lesson, and a charming story. I loved seeing Thérèse as she poured her heart into her gift, and the surprise at the end! A beautiful story that is sure to please!
