A Quilter’s Holiday by Jennifer Chiaverini read by Christina Moore

Do you really want to spend a half an hour of your time listening to a blow by blow account of how Diane, an Elm Creek Quilter, who never remembers to charge her cell phone, gets stuck in a snow storm with only 8% of her battery left to make… 1 call? Not an iphone, for sure. Her call goes unanswered, and she leaves a message on an answering machine about needing a rescue squad. Oh, drama! An incoming call from her husband has this verbally aggressive mother of two suddenly mute, unable to tell her husband that she and her car and her thanksgiving spirit are stuck halfway down an embankment….

The charming Elm Creek Quilt theme is there somewhere underneath the heavy Thanksgiving Hallmark card, but not charming enough.
