The Aloha Quilt (Elm Creek Quilts, #16) by Jennifer ChiaveriniAnother season of Elm Creek Quilt Camp has come to a close, and Bonnie Markham faces a bleak and lonely winter ahead, with her quilt shop out of business and her divorce looming. A welcome escape comes when Claire, a beloved college friend, unexpectedly invites her to Maui to help launch an exciting new business: a quilters retreat set at a bed and breakfast amid the vibrant colors and balmy breezes of the Hawaiian Islands. Soon Bonnie finds herself looking out on sparkling waters and banyan trees, planning quilting courses, and learning the history and intricacies of Hawaiian quilting, all the while helping Claire run the inn.As Bonnies adventure unfolds, it quickly becomes clear that Claires new business isnt the only excitement in store for her. Her cheating, soon-to-be ex-husband decides he wants her stake in Elm Creek Quilts, which threatens not only her financial well-being but her dearest friendships as well. Luckily she has the artistic challenge of creating her own unique Hawaiian quilt pattern to distract her--and new friends like Hinano Paoa, owner of the Na Mele Hawaii Music Shop, who introduces Bonnie to the fascinating traditions of Hawaiian culture and reminds her that love can be found when and where you least expect it.

The owner is wonderful. The decor was "s Western" and she had all sorts of books on things like Bears and Cowboy Boots and other - so I think men would like this room very much but women would also love this room. The bed was very big and comfortable and it was nice touch that there are fluffy bathrobes in the bathroom. Breakfast is a "heat and serve yourself" type affair -- mine was delicious quiche and zucchini bread both homemade and cut up cantaloupe. Cable TV is provided but why would you want to watch TV when you could read up about the old west or sit outside in the quiet?! At least that was what I was there for -- a nice quiet get-away from all the hustle and bustle of my day-to-day existence -- and I was not disappointed!
