    Friendships, love and 'Helping Hands'

    Angle Lane is located in a small town in Washington, but the community, small town support and feeling has long since left. Three local women are determined to make a change in this, with a helping hand--pass it forward plan.

    Jessie makes delicious chocolates for her candy shop. She is also trying to get beyond her divorce after an abusive marriage. Her Aunt Sarah makes yummy items for her bakery shop. She's happily married but is sadly missing her two granddaughters as their family has just moved away for business dreams. Emma is single, but is always on the lookout for the perfect man. Her quilt shop is also her love, but business has been so slow that she dreads the possibility of needing to close it's doors.

    The three women come up with the idea of bringing that 'Helping Hands' spirit back to their community. Accomplishing this drives this story of friendship, romance, families, and all the many form of love. A pesky cat, and the enthusiasm and boundless energy of young children adds lots of humor and pathos. Fun holiday read!

    It was selected as a book club reading and all enjoyed it. It was easy to follow the characters. It was nice to read a story about 3 business ladies wanting to promote "acts of kindness" in their community and how the town viewed it.

    Heartwarming tale!

    Review by Jen:
    Angel Lane is a feel-good book that shouldn't be missed and is a perfect read for the upcoming Christmas holiday season.

    The town of Heart Lake is losing that treasured small-town feeling that many of its residents cherish. So friends, and shop owners, Sarah, Emma and Jamie take it into their own hands to make a difference. They start the movement "keep the heart in Heart Lake" with the hopes that good deeds would be paid forward by those who had received the gesture.

    But what book is without conflict. As the ladies try to get their movement off the ground they have to deal with professional and personal problems. Sarah has an overzealous neighbor, an marriage losing its passion and is missing her grandchildren. Emma is alone and facing the closing of her quilt shop. And Jamie is recovering from an abusive marriage and tempted by the local widowed cop and his children.

    I was very happy to have been asked to read and review this book. Once I got started I didn't want to put it back. Sheila's writing just drew me in and made me care about the characters and hope for a perfect ending. I highly recommend this book to those who love a good heartwarming tale.

    Cute But Disposable

    A cute, modern day "pay it forward" book. Easy reading with likeable characters. However, when you look back in a few months you won't remember much about it - a quick and forgettable read.

    fun Pacific Northwest small town tale

    In Heart Lake, Washington, quilt store owner Emma Swanson, bakery shopkeeper Sarah Goodwin and her niece Chocolate Bar owner Jamie Moore decide to do something nice for their small town. They organize the "keep the heart in Heart Lake" campaign asking residents to do something nice for someone else every day.

    The three women plan to be role models, but not one expected the consequences of kindness. Emma's Quilt Corner store may close; Sarah is lonely even as she gives free baking lessons and has met Sam; and Jamie has to face her fears of commitment since she met a widower single father of two, Josh the cop.

    This is a fun Pacific Northwest small town tale that looks profoundly into a community and as deeply into friendship. The three amigas may have issues that make it difficult to be angels, but they each try anyway. With a warm fuzzy holiday feel, fans who appreciate an inspiring tale will know it does take a committed caring community to bring the heart to everyone.
