Overview

With irresistible humor, warmth, and affection, author Sheila Roberts serves up a generous, open-hearted story about the friendships we make, the chances we take, and the lives we touch every day.

Keep the heart in Heart Lake. That's exactly what three small-town shop owners hope to do when they launch their "Have a Heart" campaign-asking neighbors to commit one random act of kindness every day. Emma, Sarah, and Jamie love their lakeside community, but the little town is growing too big too fast, and doing a good deed never hurt anyone. Or so they thought...

"Readers will laugh and cry with the women lovingly portrayed in this heartwarming story."-RT Book Reviews
When Emma slashes prices at her quilt shop, she almost stitches her way into bankruptcy. Sarah's free cooking class boils down to a hotbed of crime when some punk kid swipes her favorite heirloom. And at Jamie's chocolate shop, things take a bittersweet turn when a local policeman starts giving her grief, stirring up feelings she's tried to forget-and slowly melts away her defenses...
"Will doubtless warm more than a few hearts."-Publishers Weekly

Publishers Weekly
Roberts returns to Heart Lake, Wash., for a second beguiling visit (after Spring in Bloom). Chocolatier Jamie Moore, her bakery-owner aunt Sarah and quilt store owner Emma Swanson take on a community project, “Have a Heart,” to encourage good deeds in Heart Lake, but the friends find paying-it-forward isn’t as easy as it would seem. Cop Josh Armstrong, a handsome widower with two cute daughters, keeps rescuing Jamie, who fights her attraction to him because of her first marriage to an abusive cop. Emma, who’s struggling to keep her store open and is also hungry for love, adopts a stray cat. Married Sarah fights off a lecherous neighbor and gives free (but messy) baking lessons to girls. Roberts’s world of good deeds can verge on Thomas Kinkade overkill, though her relentless cheer will doubtless warm more than a few hearts. (Oct.)
RT Book Reviews

Roberts' book of small-town life is as sweet as ginger cookies and as homey as raisin pie (recipes included). Readers will laugh and cry with the women lovingly portrayed in this heartwarming story that explores the joys of friendship and the power of good deeds.
