Overview

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?

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.

Grace's Gold is the second book in the Sweet Treats Bakery Series and every bit as great as the first, Kate's Kisses. Don't miss any in this series. They are thoroughly enjoyable!

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! Originally posted at the Long and Short of It Romance Reviews

Grace's Gold is a sweet love story about second chances. When Grace Spencer's husband dies in a construction accident, she is left to raise a young son alone. Brent Peterson, the man who's loved her since they were in school together, is ready to let Grace know how he feels. What happens between them makes for a compelling romance.

I bought Grace's Gold after reading Kate's Kisses, and really enjoyed both novellas. They are, just like the series name, a sweet treat.

Welcome to a new series of novellas by one of my favorite authors, Mary Manners. She's created a cast of characters that are full of life and faith, and a bakery that sounds delish! In "Grace's Gold" we meet sister Grace and her kindergarten age son, Adam. Grace's life has been filled with love, but also with tragedy, Her parents died early in her life, leaving her sisters and an inheritance that created "Sweet Treats Bakery". Then Grace's husband Dan was killed in an accident, leaving her to raise their son on her own. Brent has loved Grace since, well, since forever. But he who hesitates loses the girl to the quarterback. Will Brent take a chance and try to capture Grace's heart this second time around? And can Grace let go and love again, taking the risk of losing someone else in her life? Trust, love and bakery goodies abound in this delightful novella. Mary has a knack for packing a lot into just a few pages: I'd love to see what she can do with a longer novel! You'll fall in love with Grace, Adam and Brent, and you'll want to read more about the sisters that staff "Sweet Treats Bakery". I plan on adding the other books to my wish list. "Grace's Gold" gets four out of five stars. TWJ Magazine strives to guide readers to books of personal interest, with the understanding and respect that what appeals to some may not appeal to others. Therefore we attempt to keep our reviews focused on content, genre and style. The rating is necessary to make use of Goodreads, B&N, and Amazon. It reflects the reviewer’s own level of enjoyment, but the review is intended to be informative for the benefit of all readers.

I am very pleased with this author! Mary wrote once again a lovely story about how a patient love, when it's meant to be waits for the right moment to surface, just sweet story telling. It was nice to read a little update on Kate's love story. Great writing!! I hope Mary Manners continues to write great romantic short stories.

Story was very short, I read it in about an hour. I purchased this because of the great reviews. I can only assume those readers got the entire book and not the VERY condensed version. Barnes and Noble seem to do this with nook books and because the books are shorten so much, you lose a lot of the story.
