It is the first story. Jo gets a package from her Aunt who died while she was out of the company on a long business trips. It asks her to help her finish her daughter's wedding quilt. She knows that she won't be around for her wedding.

Nine Ladies Dancing by Sarah Mayberry

Title really does not fit the story. Rachel when she was 15 overheard Leo talking bad about her. Now she finds out that he is back home and the lady who is going to help her finish the quilt is his mother. Rachel has to deal with her past hurts. Leo is dealing with a death of a friend and his own hurt body.
I needed more from this story.
I was hoping for more of the story when they all would be back together.

I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when I was finished by NetGalley and Harlequin.
