Day 2 at the Sweet Treats Bakery

Join me at the Sweet Treats Bakery for today's glimpse into the world of Grace's Gold.

Find out all about this fantastic series from award-winning author Mary Manners and White Rose Publishing as we count down to Friday's release of the final book in this series!

Now, without further fanfare, kick back with some sweets, and some coffee, and a tasty nibble of 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?

In the pages of Grace’s Gold, we meet Brent Peterson, and become much more familiar with another Spencer sister: this time it’s Grace.

Grace always thought of Brent as best friend. Brent and Grace share a history that stretches clear back to their childhood. But Grace married Dan—who died just a few years ago. When Brent returns to the wonderful southern town of Mount Ridge, Tennessee, he finds Grace a widow, and a mother, and he’s out to claim her heart—despite the wedding ring she continues to wear.

Can he edge her back to dreams and fulfillment of the heart, despite the memory of her husband? Can he show her how precious their relationship has always been, and if he does, will Grace accept the offering of his heart?
With her flair for touching the heart, sparking a laugh, and leaving me to sigh with delight, Mary

Manners created a wonderful follow-up to Kate’s Kisses, and keeps the treats pouring forth from Sweet Treats Bakery! Don’t miss it!

  2. Welcome back, Mary!! :-) Loved Grace's Gold!! You're making me crave sweets in a SERIOUS way!! :-) God bless!

  3. LoRee, my DH and I absolutely LOVE Tennessee. We've gone to Nashville/Franklin for the past two years, and have stayed at a horse farm-bed and breakfast that features a room we love on the second floor, with a balcony, that overlooks the sunrise over the Smoky Mountains. Ask me if that didn't do some major-league inspiring and motivating! LOL!! It's a gorgeous part of the country.
