” Grand Design” by Amber Stockton, book review
Alyssa used to spend every summer on Mackinac Island with her grandmother. But 15 years ago was the last time. Now, she is returning. Surely it will be ok. On a dare she entered a contest to win a 2 week stay on the island and won. She and her best friend Libby are enjoying all the activities including the attention of 2 island employees, who are nice young men, in the words of her Grandmother.
Alyssa’s grandmother has a project for the girls, collecting quilt squares from her long lost friends on the island. With the help of Scott, Alyssa travels the island and meets fascinating women and hears stories of the old days. She is really enjoying her vacation and getting to know Scott.
But then the past reappears and it is just as bad as she remembers it!
I enjoyed this book. The characters are well developed and the plot moves along. Great summer vacation reading.
