Grace is one of four sisters that own and work at Sweet Treats bakery. The girls started the bakery with the insurance money that they received after the deaths of their parents in a car accident.

Growing up in Mount Ridge, Grace and Brent met in kindergarten and became friends for life. As their friendship deepened and they grew older, Brent realized that his feelings for Grace were turning into something deeper. Before their senior year in high school, before he tell Grace of his feelings, a new boy moved I to town, Dan. Dan swept Grace off her feet and they eloped right after high school. Dan died in a job related accident, leaving Grace to raise their son, Adam. Can Brent and Grace rekindle their love? Or will she always love Dan and not let any other man into her life?

Another wonderful book in this series.

This was such a sweet story. I think the fact that they already knew each other works well for a short story format because they are not rushed to get to know each other. They already do.

Brent and Grace are so good together, and Brent is going to make a great dad for Adam. There is really not much more that can be said. This was just a sweet short story that made me go aww!

Sometimes situations in our lives make us feel like happily-ever-after stories are for everyone but us. Such is the story of Grace's Gold. After the loss of her husband, Grace thinks she's destined to raise her son alone. Yet, in the shadows there's been a faithful friend by her side. Could he possibly be more?

This novella is yet another quick read from talent author, Ms. Manner.

Grace has joined with her sisters to make a go of the Sweet Treats Bakery that they created after the death of their parents. Like her sister Kate with her kisses, Grace has created her own specialty to add to the menu- golden cake. Will the golden cake play a part in her second chance at love?

Grace lost her husband six years ago, but she still wasn't ready to move into a new relationship. However, her young son needed a male role model in his life. And Brent was there. He'd always had been and still was. When would Grace feel it was the right moment?

This author has written a lot of romance tales, but this is the first time I have read her work. She grabs your heart immediately with Grace and her small boy, Adam. They are baking a cake together and the love and camaraderie between mother and son will tug at your heart.

Ms. Manners shows you how patient Brent has been through the years and you begin rooting for him to change Grace's mind about how long she needs to protect her heart. Once you've been hurt, it's hard to open your heart again. This author obviously has had some life experiences with it herself because she understands how cautious one can be about loving again after you've felt that kind of pain.

This author writes sweet, lilting romances that catch your eye and entice your attention while you wait for the characters involved to see what is right in front of them. Her words flow smoothly, the story line is clean, and with a little family help, Grace finally sees what she should do.

Ms. Manners romances are simple little tales about life. I found that refreshing and fun to read. If you think this style would suit you, why not try this story yourself and see how many more of her tales you buy? It's nice to have good clean fun once in a while!

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!

This is one story worthy of a 5 cupcake review!

Oh my goodness, with a simple sweet lemon cake, Ms. Manners demonstrates the deep love from a mother to her child. Grace has traveled a hard road and is happy with the life of mother and baker extraordinaire. When Brent sneaks into her heart by showing his love for her little boy, Adam, her heart melts like the icing on her cakes.

This is such a sweet read! The agony Grace feels, over choices past and present, just makes you want to cry and cheer as this story unrolls.
