While New Bern, Connecticut, lies under a blanket of snow, the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop remains a cozy haven for its owner, Evelyn Dixon, and her friends. Evelyn relishes winter's slower pace--besides, internet sales are hopping, thanks to her son Garrett's efforts. In addition to helping out at the shop, Garrett has also been patiently waiting for his girlfriend, Liza, to finish art school in New York City. But as much as Evelyn loves Liza, she wonders if it's a good idea for her son to be so serious, so soon, with a young woman who's just getting ready to spread her wings. . . Liza's wondering the same thing--especially after Garrett rolls out the red carpet for a super-romantic New Year's Eve--complete with marriage proposal. Garrett's the closest thing to perfect she's ever known, but what about her own imperfections? The only happy marriage Liza's ever seen is her Aunt Abigail's, and it took her decades to tie the knot. Soon, Liza is not only struggling with her own fears, but with the mixed reactions of her friends and family. And when she finds herself torn between a rare career opportunity and her love for Garrett, Liza must grasp at the thinnest of threads--and pray it holds. . .

Liebe ist, wenn es nach Kuchen duftet Samantha hat immer von der großen weiten Welt geträumt. Das Landleben auf dem Hof ihrer Eltern nahe des Lake Michigan erschien ihr eintönig und beschwerlich. Doch ihr aktueller Job in einer angesagten Patisserie in New York ist nicht so toll, wie sie es erhofft hatte. »Chef Dimple«, wie sich ihr Boss nennen lässt, ist ein eitler Choleriker und aufgeblasener Angeber, der seine Mitarbeiter ausbeutet und keinen Respekt vor Sams Backkünsten hat. Ihm ist es egal, wie die Kuchen seines Ladens schmecken, Hauptsache er sieht im Fernsehen gut damit aus. Als ein Streit mit ihm eskaliert, wirft Sam das Nudelholz für immer hin und fährt nach Hause - sehr zum Bedauern des netten Lieferanten Angelo Morelli. Sams Familie ist froh über den unerwarteten Besuch. Alle sind schon aufgeregt, denn das 100-jährige Jubiläum des Obsthofs steht bevor, das mit dem 75. Geburtstag von Sams Großmutter zusammenfällt und groß gefeiert werden soll. Sam hilft überall mit, backt mit Mutter und Großmutter Cider-Donuts, Kirschkuchen und Apfeltaschen für den Hofladen und versucht sich über ihre Zukunft klarzuwerden. Das wird nicht leichter, als sowohl Angelo als auch ein neues New Yorker Jobangebot in Michigan eintreffen. Ist sie eigentlich damals vor etwas davon gelaufen, als sie in die Großstadt zog? Wo fühlt sie sich wirklich zu Hause? Während des Sommers, in dem sie mit den Frauen ihrer Familie zusammenarbeitet, erfährt sie viel über die Generationen vor ihr und findet Trost in den überlieferten alten Rezepten. Mit dreizehn hatte sie genau wie ihre Mutter und ihre Großmutter ein Holzkästchen für die besten geheimen Familienrezepte und den Schlüssel dazu geschenkt bekommen. Wird dieser Schlüssel ihr am Ende Glück bringen?

Meanwhile, she'll settle for raising babies with her new husband, Donny. But that dream proves elusive too, until finally, Mary Dell gets the son she always wanted--a child as different as he is wonderful.

In an emotionally rich and captivating new novel, New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick reunites three sisters whose deep bond is rooted in an unconventional past. Every child prodigy grows up eventually. For the Promise sisters, escaping their mother’s narcissism and the notoriety that came with her bestselling book hasn’t been easy. Minerva Promise claimed that her three “test tube” daughters—gifted pianist Joanie, artistic Meg, and storyteller Avery—were engineered and molded to be geniuses. In adulthood, their modest lives fall far short of her grand ambitions. But now, twenty years after the book’s release, she hopes to redeem herself by taking part in a new documentary. Meg, who hasn’t picked up a paintbrush in years, adamantly refuses to participate, until a car accident leaves her with crushing medical bills. While she recuperates in Seattle, the three sisters reluctantly meet with filmmaker Hal Seeger, another former prodigy. Like them, he’s familiar with the weight of failed potential. But as he digs deeper, he uncovers secrets they’ve hidden from each other—and a revelation that will challenge their beliefs, even as it spurs them to forge their own extraordinary lives at last. “Reading Marie Boswick is like wrapping yourself up in a warm, hand-crafted quilt. Her books, rich in character and plot, are stitched together by a skilled wordsmith.” —Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author “THE PROMISE GIRLS is a beautiful story about the ties that bind—love, laughter, memories, even secrets kept so long they become a part of the fabric of a family. Marie Bostwick exquisitely tells the tale of the three Promise girls, former child prodigies who learn to heal the scars of a bitter past so that they can love—and forgive—again.” —Melanie Benjamin, New York Times Best Selling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue
