Sweet Treats Bakery
This 4-in-1 anthology includes all four Sweet Treat Bakery Series novelettes from award-winning author Mary Manners.Kate's Kisses:Following the tragic, sudden death of her parents, Kate Spencer broke off her engagement from high school sweetheart Logan Daniels, just weeks before their wedding. She chose, instead, to remain in Mount Ridge, Tennessee to raise her younger sisters and help keep the family together. Now, with her sisters grown, she spends her days at family-owned Sweet Treats Bakery, hiding a wounded heart in the sweet confections she creates.Logan Daniels left town when Kate broke his heart, but now he's come home to claim what he lost four years ago, and he won't stop until he gets what he came for ... Kate's kisses.Grace's Gold:Brent Peterson returns to Mount Ridge, Tennessee with a single goal--to win back Grace Spencer. He's loved her since kindergarten, and should have told her how he felt, but Dan Turner swooped in and stole Grace away before Brent had the chance. Now Grace is a widow with a young son, and while it's been three years since her husband's death, Brent isn't sure he should make his feelings known.When Brent comes around the family bakery, Grace longs to restore their friendship, but the thin gold wedding band on her finger--and memories of Dan--stand between them.Can Brent's gentle patience coax Grace to let go of her memories ... and the ring, or is it time for Brent to move on alone, and leave Mount Ridge forever? Tessa's Teacakes:Tessa, the youngest Spencer sister--and the most impulsive--rushes into the Mount Ridge crisis center bent on saving her brother-in-law. She's ready to handle Brent's abductor, with or without help. What she's not ready to handle is the effect policeman, Colin Phillips, has on her. Romance is the last thing on Tessa's mind. She longs for the adventure and fast-pace of New York City, not being tied to Mount Ridge and a man who insists she shouldn't be so impetuous. After all "independent spirit" is what Tessa does best!Colin transferred from the police force in Atlanta in order to find closure after the brutal murder of his younger sister. He wants a nice, safe future, not one filled with caring and worrying about another impulsive woman. His sister was naïve and unpredictable, and while Colin is drawn to Tessa's spunk and vitality, her willingness to rush into danger scares him. No way could he cope with another devastating loss. His heart must remain closed where Tessa is concerned.But God has His own plans ... and His own way of changing hearts and cultivating love.Mattie's Meltaways:Mattie Spencer has spent the last decade raising her three younger sisters and grooming Sweet Treats Bakery into a thriving business.
