Isabelle Wainwright is no stranger to heartache. She was just fifteen when her mother left her to be raised by her father so she could start a new life across the country. Rather than crumbling in despair, Isabelle eventually stitched together her own path, graduating from college and starting a family in Atlanta. But her hard-won fairytale ending is beginning to unravel. . .
The shock of her father's sudden death is compounded when Isabelle's husband leaves her and her daughter for someone else. Reeling from being abandoned yet again, she finds comfort in Chloe Radcliffe, her father's girlfriend, who encourages her to move to Ormond Beach, Florida, and help her run her yarn shop. There, Isabelle may find the strength to confront her past, build new friendships, and perhaps even learn to love in a way she never thought possible. 

Stitches in Time is the second book in Ms. DuLong's Ormand Beach series though it can be read as a stand alone book. It's a  heartwarming tale of love lost, a new life and love found but most importantly ~ growing and finding one's self after facing life's challenges.  


I enjoyed reading Stitches In Time!  My favorite things? How realistic and engaging the characters in this book are and I enjoyed reading/experiencing the deep friendships between the main character and her women friends.  It is so true that good, close friendships make such a positive difference in life! 

{Things Wished For}   

I didn't have anything that I really disliked in this book but I did have a  few wishes. 

Main Wish ~ I would have liked to have seen the friendship between Isabelle (main character) and Brenda (new friend) become more developed in this story. They met through their daughter's and it looked like they were becoming good friends but then that sub-plot fell to the wayside as the rest of Isabelle's story unfolded. 

I felt like Brenda and her daughter had a story to tell so maybe (hopefully) Ms. DuLong will write a book about them before she is done with this series!

Stitches in Time was as great a read as the first book in this series, Patterns of Change. I can't wait for the next book in this series to be released! 

4.5 Stars!

Thank you to Lyrical Press and Netgalley for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
