Book Review ~ ‘Cross Stitch’ by Amanda James
Sorcha O’Dowd | Old Victorian Quill
“‘Cross Stitch’ had the same essence to ‘A Stitch in Time’, a brilliant underlying level of humour, and a sweet tenderness that tugged at my heartstrings.”
“Amanda James really packed the emotion into ‘Cross Stitch’, and there are some brilliant scenes where we see how Sarah isn’t as unaffected with her trips to the past as she may always show.”
“Gorgeously romantic, ‘Cross Stitch’ was everything I hoped for in a sequel to ‘A Stitch in Time’.”
Review : Cross Stitch by Amanda James
Shaz Goodwin | Jera’s Jamboree
“Totally involved with this story, I read it quickly – I couldn’t wait to see where Sarah would go next, the purpose of her being there or even if she would come back.”
“Tension from the challenges faced on the time travel journeys, friendship, family and romance have made this a totally absorbing read for me.”
“Highly recommended if you like your romances with something different!”

“When I managed to take my eyes away from the stunning cover, starting this book was like putting on a comfy pair of slippers.”
“I enjoyed this book so much I didn’t want it to end.”
About the Book
A stitch in time may save nine but a cross-stitch spells disaster …
It should be the happiest day of her life. Despite past heartache, Sarah Yates is finally marrying her true love, John Needler.
But Sarah and John can’t pretend they’re an ordinary couple. They’re time travelers and where time travel is involved, nothing runs smoothly. One minute Sarah is saying her vows and the next she is hurtled back in time to a country that is on the cusp of war, and into the company of the bad-tempered Veronica Ratchet.
Newly-wedded bliss is certainly not on the cards for Sarah as events see her traveling from the British punk era to 1950’s America. And even when she returns home she can’t escape Veronica.
But when the past and the present collide, that’s when the real problems start …
