Will past pain unravel the future?
Juliana Sutton has just about everything a woman could want. Her husband is riding a crest of success in the bustling capitol city of Lincoln, and Juliana leads various philanthropic endeavors. Once finished, their new home, a spectacular mansion on five acres, will be the envy of all. Then a devastating scandal erupts. . . .
Cass Gregory, the foreman overseeing the Sutton mansion construction, has spent recent years trying to untangle the disastrous results of his own past choices—and wishing he didn’t know the truth about his boss. When scandal ignites, Cass longs to comfort Juliana but is convinced her position in society and his past make a relationship impossible.
Juliana and Cass are thrown together as completion of the mansion draws near, each one wounded and afraid to trust. Will the shadow of a name stand between them and true happiness?

The Key on the Quilt is the first book in the Quilt Chronicles series by Stephanie Whitson, and I had the pleasure of reading it earlier this year. Shadow on the Quilt is the second book, and I think it was even better than the first one!
I loved the story of Juliana Sutton, and adored the elderly aunts of her husband. They all lived together in a huge mansion and everything changed dramatically after a fire and resulting scandal.
Juliana had a lot of choices to make, and out of necessity she had to spend a great deal of time with the contractor/foreman of the new mansion under construction. They had huge decisions about the finishing details and also about the future of the mansion itself. It was her husband's dream, and Juliana did not share the same vision or passion.
Cass has problems of his own, and neither of them are looking for more than a working relationship. However, things could definitely change. Check out both books in this series ... highly enjoyable!
