I loved the carefree romance of he story. Charlie and the boarder collie were my favorite. Every thing seem to happen because the characters never talk about their true feelings. But Sam and Trixie were meant to be together. Trixie had a hard life, but kept a memorie of a good town and loving people.

The True Love Quilting Club is the second book in Lori Wilde’s Twilight Texas series. Ironically even though this book was published a few years ago I chose to read it now when the subject of sexual harassment in the workplace, especially in the entertainment industry is featured almost daily on the evening news. More on that in a minute.
If you haven’t read a Lori Wilde book yet be aware that she’s a talented writer whose stories overflow with warm gentle breezes, singing birds, blossoming

The second installment in Lori Wilde's Twilight series, The True Love Quilting Club will sweep you off of your feet and won't put you down until the very last page.

Trixie Lynn Parks has been struggling in Broadway for twelve long years, and finally decides to pack it up and head back to the one place she was once happy, Twilight, Texas.

But when she is there, she runs into Sam Cheek, a boy she once has a crush on, a boy who told Trixie she was destined for bigger things. B

Picked up from some random place, maybe in Hawaii or maybe in Sydney. It took me till Alice Springs to read it.

This is the story of Emma Parks (née Trixie Lynn Parks) and Sam Cheek. They met when they were both fourteen, exchanged one kiss, and then she moved away. Sixteen years later, she ends up in Twilight, Texas again. Naturally, there are sparks. And of course Emma and Sam fall in love again. Who wouldn't?

There are a few things I liked about this book:

The old saying, "You can't judge a book by its cover" certainly applies here. I thought it would be a wholesome book about love and friendship centered around a group of women who love to quilt. The story line was predictable (as far as girl falls in love with guy and they live happily ever after) and it was just too sexually graffic for my taste. I think it (the cover) would have been more in line with the book's content if it had Fabio on it.

Well, I finished it. But after pondering what was wrong with this book (and I actually like an occasional romance novel) it absolutely totally lacked character development. There were WAY too many cliche story lines and you didn't really get so you felt you knew the characters - except how "hot" they both were. Be real - it's not like you couldn't predict the end WAY at the beginning. Sorry, NOT a favorite.

The True Love Quilting Club was only my 4th book by Lori Wilde and so far my favorite.
What I really liked was that the hero, Sam was “normal”. He wasn’t super Alpha, or ex-CIA, FBI etc… He was just an everyday guy head over heals in love with his childhood sweetheart, Trixie Lynn. I really loved both Sam and Trixie Lynn from the start and the secondary characters were just as interesting. This was a sweet romance with some surprisingly hot love scenes. This one is a keeper for me!

Incredibly predictable, terribly cheesy. Every sex scene, and there’s so many, were just too detailed and always “the best sex ever.” I assumed this would be a cozy mystery with some steaminess like the first one in this series is, but it’s definitely not. I’d hoped to have found a new series to read but this second one makes me uninterested in continuing.

I bought this book at a garage sale in the States. It's a really chick book and well, if I read this in my mother tongue, I definitely don't read it. However, I LOVE reading romantic books in English. So, I really enjoyed it.

I want to read more books from the author. Even though this book is for adults, it's not difficult to read at all. Next year I want to read at least one of her books in English.

I’m quickly falling for the town of Twilight, TX! The characters are great and the stories surrounding this little town could be members of any small town!
Enjoyed Trixie Lynn’s and Sam’s story and hope they are a part of more stories in this series!

I’ve read a couple of the books in the series out of order and enjoyed them. This one took me longer to get into. I enjoyed the storyline and the HEA, not so much the sex and talk of porn. This could have been better.

This story was about lost and found love along with theme of how opposites attract. So many times when opposites attract it is a story of hard and brittle edges but this story tells you about a love that is soft and uplifting, exciting and calming along with roots and wings. I adored this story.

Book #2 in the Twilight Texas Series, and another cute story. I'm finding these books very entertaining and heart warming. I love how we still get to see the old characters throughout the series, to see how they're all still doing. It's great that they'll all get to cross over in each book. Almost like you never lose touch with an old friend. And let's face it, the ladies that are part of these clubs, make the stories so much funnier and cozier.

The True Love Quilting Club, much like its predecessor, The Sweethearts' Knitting Club in the Twilight, Texas series was a heartfelt, great read. The small, cozy, and homey town of Twilight is once again the enabler of second chances for first and true loves.

We meet Emma (formerly Trixie Lynn) Parks and Sam Cheek. Emma is the small town girl with big city dreams and accompanying failures when it comes to realizing those dreams. Sam is the steady reassuring man, weary with his comfortable life who yearns for m

While I admit that there were certain parts of this book that could've been fleshed out more (view spoiler), this was still a book that made me sigh with happiness when I closed the book.

I loved this second visit to Twilight Texas. Emma lived in Twilight for one year before her stepfather moved them away. She had a terrific friendship and beginnings of a romance with Sam. When she was 18 she moved to New York to become an actress. After 12 years and a major scandal she found herself back in Twilight. There she reconnected with Sam. I loved the characters in this book. Emma was fixated on her career and what she had to do to make it big. She knew she wouldn't be staying in Twilig ...more

The True Love Quilting Club is book 2 in the Twilight, Texas series by Lori Wilde. I thought that this book was okay, didn't have as good of a storyline as other books in this series. The plot wasn't very exciting and was pretty predictable. The second half of the book was pretty steamy and seemed like page fillers as the author didn't have anything else for the characters to do/say. I really liked the quotes at the beginning of each chapter.

I like the writing style, its witty like Jenny Cruise

Wonderful story of dreams coming true.

Trixie Lynn Parks had always had dreams of stardom, even as a child. When her mother abandons her to find her own dreams, she was left with her stepfather, who she learns is not her real father. Her best memory was a kiss shared with Sam Cheek, before her father took her from Twilight.

A struggling actress in New York City, Trixie, who changed her name to Emma, returns to Twilight under contract to perform in a play. She encounters Sam, now a veterinarian a

A very sweet, heartwarming love story. Two people who loved each other as kids have now found themselves together again as adults. Their lives are not quite what they thought they would be, but they are still trying to make do. Can their love keep them together, or will life events separate them once more.

This was a very quick read, and although I liked both of the characters, it didn't have anything that made me sit up and say "wow". Unlike Wilde's other book The SweetHeart Knitting

Welcome back to the town of Twilight, Texas in the second book in the series by Lori Wilde. To say that I really liked this story would be an understatement because I absolutely loved it!! The storyline was great and who does not want to read about sweethearts being re united for a second chance on love??!! :-)
There was so many hilarious scenes all through out this book that I honestly can not pick just one as my favorite. Never a dull moment in the town of Twilight, Texas lol

This was cute--Trixie Lynn Parks and Sam Cheek were best friends at 14, and shared a surprising first kiss before Trixie's father whisked her off to yet another town. Years later, Trixie, now Emma, is in NYC struggling to find her big break as an actress. A special opportunity brings her back to Twilight, where Sam's now a widowed dad.

It does seem that many of Ms. Wilde's main characters seem to have completely horrible childhoods, I suppose all the better to reflect their remarkable
It was a rather sweet romance. It delt with a 14 year old girl, whose mother had left her to go after stardom, leaving her mother's husband, who was not the girls father. He was not able to give her the love she needed. Trixie Lynn had fallen in love with Sam, when they were both 14 years old. She only lived in Twilight Texas for one year, but it was the only place she ever felt she belonged. The story tells how the two were brought back together, by Sam's match making aunt, and other women of t ...more

OK book but I had a really hard time staying interested for some reason. I think I was expecting the quilting club to have more of a main role in the book and it really didn't. The club members showed up frequently throughout the book but most of the focus was on Emma's acting career and Sam's first wife and I felt annoyed with him for marrying someone just to take care of her son for her while she went to war. Nice thing to do but it seemed over the top for someone who is more of a friend than ...more
Trixie Lynn Parks had one good year in High School when she lived in Twilight, Texas, then she and her father moved again and she even found out why he didn't love her. She left home at 18 and went to New York to become an actress following the path of many young women, roles in off-Broadway and with waitress jobs to pay the bills. Then she got a call to return to Twilight to star in the town play and she found her high-school crush and what she was missing. Can she leave it all behind to go on ...more

Lori Wilde can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to write. She even went to nursing school so she could have a schedule flexible enough to allow her to write on the side. She nursed for 20 years, working in a variety of settings from the newborn nursery to the recovery room, to dialysis. But she never lost her desire to write.
