A THREAD SO THIN
"Sweet and familiar" best describes Bostwick's third book in her series about New Bern and its quilt shop. For readers who crave predictability in characters and outcome, this is the perfect book for a lazy spring afternoon.
Liza Burgess has been working to turn around her life, and everything is going well -- until Garrett, her boyfriend, proposes. Liza says yes but has reservations, as does Evelyn, her friend and confidante, who just happens to be her fiance's mother. Then her aunt, who raised her after her mother's death, tries to make up for past mistakes by creating a dream wedding that her niece doesn't want. When Liza finds herself torn between a rare career opportunity and her love for Garrett, she nearly loses everything until she is honest with herself and those who love her.
