(The sixth book in the Dorado, Texas series)
A novel by

GRANDMA'S WEDDING QUILTS: Eleven Sweet Western Historical Romance Novellas and Novels from Eleven USA Today Bestselling, Amazon Bestselling, and Award-Winning Authors. This is book 8 in the series.

Grandma Mary's traditional gift to each of her grandchildren: hand-pieced and hand-stitched quilts. Made with love and woven with memories, wisdom, and a family legacy of enduring love.
When Ione Forrester calls off her wedding, she becomes the social pariah of Des Moines. Much to her society parents' chagrin. To escape the gossip, Ione accepts a teaching job in Dorado, Texas, vowing to avoid scandal at all costs. Relocating from a doctor's household with cook and maids to a room in a boarding house is quite an adjustment. Then she has to face her biggest challenge - a schoolhouse full of students.
Carpenter Morgan Shipley has been working hard to build his business and now he's looking for companionship in his life. An ad for a mail-order bride brings a deluge of letters, and Morgan adopts the role of matchmaker to share the wealth among other Dorado bachelors. To his surprise, an intriguing woman from a big city arrives in his small Texas town. Correspondence is nothing like interacting with a flesh-and-blood woman every day. But Ione wants nothing to do with Morgan's attempts at courting, which makes him try even harder. (Book 6 of the "Dorado, Texas" series)
