Mae Stafford longs for the companionship and unconditional love her sister has found in her new husband. But after years of refusing potential suitors because of a pact they made as children, Mae no longer has any choices left once their agreement is broken. She has no hope that God will give her what she desires most, a family of her own. Instead of dwelling on what she doesn’t have, she throws herself into her work as the recent sole owner of the local dress shop.
As a promise made to his late wife, Johannes Mueller agrees to travel west to be a school teacher in Calder Springs, Texas, away from the bigotry associated with being an immigrant in New York City. He hopes to improve his life and forget his loss. Johannes isn’t counting on his five-year-old daughter’s search for a new mother when they arrive. His little LillyAnn finds ways to bring the seamstress and him together…often. Can he learn to embrace his German heritage and unlock his heart to love again?

My Review:   
"Love In The Seams" by Jodie Wolfe is the second book in the (Twins & Needles series). And this is one book that I am gonna say that you really don't have to read the first book  "Hearts Tightly Knit" to get the whole story. If you know me and have followed my reviews, you know that I did of course, which I will say in this case both books were a treat in themselves.

"Love In The Seams" by Jodie Wolfe is an excellent title for this book because Mae Stafford does sew her love into the seams of the garments that she sews for five year old LillyAnn.

LillyAnn wants a mom so bad and Mae wants a family but are they supposed to be each other's answer to their dreams?

LillyAnn is the new teacher's daughter and I really love the way she plans to get her dad and Mae to together, because Mae is her best friend. I also love her mispronunciation of words, they make for a few out loud laughs. 

I am hoping there are more stories in the (Twins & Needles series). These two books are the only ones I have read but am really looking  forward to reading more by Jodie Wolfe. 

These two books were a nice escape from "real life" for a couple of  hours. I was able to read both books in a couple of hours ( on different days, but I am a fast reader.)  

I encourage readers of clean romances and readers who likes children as a main character to read "Love In The Seams". I think that when you closed the book you will be saying ,What a great set of characters, I want to enter into their world again.

I am giving "Love In The Streams" by Jodie Wolfe five stars.

I was given a complimentary copy of "Love In The Streams" by the author and Celebrate Lit. The opinions expressed are my own.

Guest Post from Jodie Wolfe

I’m so excited to be a part of a Celebrate Lit tour. Thank you for the opportunity to give a small peek into my world. J Love in the Seams is book two in my Twins & Needles series. Mae Stafford’s journey to believe and have hope that God will give her the desires of her heart echo the ups and downs of my writing adventure.

I wrote my first novel as a teen quite a number of years ago. Ahem. We won’t say how many years that have passed since then. J Let’s just say it’s quite a few. My next novel didn’t get written until my early twenties…and then soon after I had children. Fiction writing took a back seat as I raised my sons and home schooled them all the way through high school.
Over seven years ago I felt God nudging me back to writing. I still had a son at home, so the progress was a little slow at first. Since then I’ve written four novels, three novellas, and have pitched a half dozen other ideas at various conferences or through my amazing agent.
God dropped my agent, Linda S. Glaz of Hartline Literary Agency, into my lap when I least expected it, but that’s a different story. I’ve had quite a number of rejections over the past few years as she’s tried to drum up interest for my books. We’ve had some nibbles and times when an editor or two was interested, but things didn’t progress any further than that.
 I’ve entered contests and have experienced mixed results. I semi-finaled in American Christian Fiction Writer’s Genesis contest a few years ago, and this past summer I found out I’m a finalist in three different contests. But there also have been quite a few where the responses weren’t so great.
 Earlier this year I decided to put out a novella independently and Hearts Tightly Knit was the result. It told the tale of Mae’s twin sister, Ellie, and their pact to always stay together and never marry. When Ellie ended up with her happily-ever-after, I knew that Mae needed one too. The only thing is Mae isn’t sure if her hopes for a family will ever come to fruition.
 Highs and lows are part of a writer’s life. Well, actually for all of us. J Sometimes it’s easy to get bogged down in the negatives, the ‘rejections’ and not be able to see past them. Believe me, at times I wallow there for a little bit, but my aim is to write books that share about the hope we have in Christ. How can I convey that if I don’t believe and experience it myself?
One of my favorite verses is Hebrews 11:1 (HCSB) which says, “Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.” One of the things I have hoped for many years was a writing contract. That finally happened in September when I signed for a novelette with Celebrate Lit that will be coming out in the spring. In the process of waiting, I’ve found God has refined and honed me in this journey of hope.
My prayer is that my books will touch your heart and give you a glimmer of the hope we have in Christ. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity into your world.
