AUTHOR:  Natalie Alder

 BLURB:

Will happiness ever be theirs? Will Cole and Sara get their ‘someday’ together? Continue Tapestry, the Becker’s family saga in Trouble Looming, sequel to Crewel Work.


WHAT I THOUGHT?


Wow, where do I even start!! 
Natalie Alder this book is really touching!!  
What a well-written love story that you can relate to the characters!  
Trouble Looming is the 2nd book in the series, and it had far more details than the the first book. Natalie brings in details and characters from the first book, updates us on Audra and JP.     
This story is mainly about Cole and Sara. How they met. What happens when life gets complicated.  Will they have their someday together.     
Cole Becker met Sara at the Pub on St. Patty's Day, when he spilled a pitcher of green beer on her. That's when this love story started so I'd suggest you pick this book up and read it!      
(I'm not going to go into more detail, as I don't want to give the story away)

I really enjoyed reading this book. It had a little bit of everything (sad, scary, suspense, hopeful, love, romance).

SOME QUOTES/PARTS OF THE STORY I LIKE:



"She was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen."

"Family's important."

"You are the strongest woman I know. I wish this wasn't what you had to do right now with your life. I can't take it all away and make it better though God knows I would if I could. I'll help you in any way I can, though. Remember that, Sara."

"Please, know that I respect your daughter greatly. I admire her and believe her to be a treasure. I hope that you don't spend time worrying about me breaking her heart. I couldn't possibly imagine doing that to her purposefully."

"Cole, you're the best thing that's happened to me, well ever."

"Good. I'd love to know that you're happy and married before I leave this Earth. So, don't you dare put off any wedding because of me. I won't be able to attend whether I'm here or in Heaven so there's no use putting off the opportunity for you both to be together."

"It's a wonderfully beautiful tapestry, rich in colors and texture."
"Well, I feel that I've been welcomed, woven into this family. I've learned so much about the family and all the different personalities, choices made, directions taken, tat sort of thing. It's like studying a tapestry, 'reading' the story it tells, and also, watching it continue to be more."

I give this story 5 stars and recommend anyone that loves romance to pick it up and read it but should read book 1 first!  If this story continues into a 3rd book, I'd love to read it! 
    
I was kindly given a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review
