Overview

New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick crafts a timeless tale of friendship, love, and the choices we must make in their name. . .

While New Bern, Connecticut, lies under a blanket of snow, the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop remains a cozy haven for its owner, Evelyn Dixon, and her friends. Evelyn relishes winter's slower pace—besides, internet sales are hopping, thanks to her son Garrett's efforts. In addition to helping out at the shop, Garrett has also been patiently waiting for his girlfriend, Liza, to finish art school in New York City. But as much as Evelyn loves Liza, she wonders if it's a good idea for her son to be so serious, so soon, with a young woman who's just getting ready to spread her wings...

Liza's wondering the same thing—especially after Garrett rolls out the red carpet for a super-romantic New Year's Eve—complete with marriage proposal. Garrett's the closest thing to perfect she's ever known, but what about her own imperfections? The only happy marriage Liza's ever seen is her Aunt Abigail's, and it took her decades to tie the knot. Soon, Liza is not only struggling with her own fears, but with the mixed reactions of her friends and family. And when she finds herself torn between a rare career opportunity and her love for Garrett, Liza must grasp at the thinnest of threads—and pray it holds. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The disappointing latest in the Cobbled Court series focuses on temperamental artist Liza and her boyfriend, Garrett, who surprises her—and everyone else—with a marriage proposal. Though Liza's formidable aunt, Abigail, immediately takes charge of arrangements, Liza isn't sure what she really wants. Meanwhile, Garrett's mother, Evelyn, continues to rebuff a tenacious suitor and juggles the new responsibilities of a visiting mother who may be there to stay. While the book is full of the requisite quilting, it is also full of blandly indecisive women whose stories overlap with little to distinguish them. The narrative's narrowness gets very tiresome very quickly, and it reduces what could be rich characters to drones. (May)

    A Good Read

    I love this series. I was so excited when I got my Nook, went online to download my first book and saw that there was a third book in this series that I didn't know came out. I would say that the first two books in the series were better. However, I still finished this book in two days. I couldn't put it down; I wanted more to the ending though. The book was written with an ending that definitely leaves room for more books in the series. There is a way to continue the series and still have a closing in each book. I recommend this series to any one who asks what good books I have read recently. Get this book!

    entertaining contemporary

    In New Bern, Connecticut Garrett Dixon helps his mom Evelyn at her Cobbled Court Quilt Shop while waiting for the return of his girlfriend Liza Burgess attending art school in New York City. Twenty-two years old Liza, whose mom died as she graduated from high school and who never met her dad, thinks of Evelyn as her surrogate mother although her maternal Aunt Abigail helped raise her.

    Garrett proposes on New Year's Eve. Although she has doubts higher than the Empire State Building, Liza accepts. While Aunt Abigail plans on throwing the New England wedding of the century, Evelyn, who loves Garrett and Liza, fears they are too young to marry. Complicating matters for Liza is a career opportunity that suddenly arises adding to the already teetering dilemma of what to do as she does not want to hurt those she loves, but by doing so she thinks she will hurt herself..

    Rotating viewpoint, the third Cobble Court family drama (see A Thread of Truth and A Single Thread) is an entertaining contemporary that follows the narrow tale's thread throughout. The cast is solid especially the wobbling lead Liza and her loved ones. Fans who enjoy a character driven story will want to read the aptly titled A Thread So Thin.

    Great Book!

    Marie Bostwick writes with charm; her characters are well developed and the story line is engaging and fun. This series is about characters you will come to love and want to know more about. I hope she writes more!

    Wonderful addition to the Cobbled Court Series!

    I am I thrilled that I preordered this book from B&N, the national release isn't until the 27th but I have already received and read it. Marie has such a unique writing style that her characters feel like real friends in your everyday life. A Thread So Thin being the third in the series was a welcomed return to New Bern and the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop, however the prologue gives you a lot of background so you could read this one without reading the others, but once you do you will want to get the first 2 and devour them as well! Being a woman of a certain age, I could identify with the characters and what they were going through. I related to how each woman felt with each new revelation during the journey that Marie takes us. The friendships they share are so realistic, surely Marie herself must be that kind of friend. I recommend this book to anyone who is a friend or has a friend, to anyone that quilts or that doesn't!

    If you love her stories, go to her website www.mariebostwick.com and become a reading friend, then join in the forum I did!

    I now have another circle of online friends to compliment my circle of hands on friends. I also participated in the most recent quilt block exchange started in February for Women's Heart Health using the pattern Mended Broken Hearts from the first novel, A Single Thread, in the series. Wow, those other ladies were so encouraging to me, as I am new(er) to quilting. You should she the wonderful blocks I received in the exchange. Sandra Johnson

    Highly recommend this entire "Cobbled Quilt Series"

    Just loved these books. Made me feel very close to the characters, and almost part of there lives (if that makes sense).

    I only wish that Cobbled Quilt Series #5 would be available on MP3.

    I Also Recommend:

    This is the third in her Cobbled Court novels. Marie Bostwick is brilliant when it comes to relationship novels.

    As Marie re-acquaints us with her wonderful characters from her previous Cobbled Court novels she wastes no time priming the drama pump. And as everyday ordinary things happen to the stars of our show is when the magic of Marie's storytelling comes through, when she makes interesting reading out of the mundane, when she makes it impossible to stop turning pages because you just have to find out what's next.
    Inside the novel are many different mini dramas all going on simultaneously of each other and overlapping each other. Ms. Bostwick handles these with an equal amount of panache mixed with good old fashioned horse sense. It's a tale of love, of belonging, of friendship, of coming of age. It's a story of hardship and heartbreak and disappointments. It's a life story a realistic picture of how we act and react toward each other. This is no romance, but a definite love story, in fact more than one love story and the author uses reality and ideality to tell us about them. Her dialogue is eloquent and prose like in content and descriptive and detailed in context and will leave you with vivid and colorful pictures in your minds eye. Her romances are not textbook Happy Ever After, some get that and some don't. Her love scenes are very tame, and yet we hard core romance readers will not feel cheated.
    This can stand a lone, but I would recommend reading the series in order to get the backgrounds. This is a truthful look at relationships and if that's the genre you love, this is the one you'll want. It has all the bells and whistles for a great read.

    Refreshing and sharp!

    Having never read this author before, I was not sure what to expect. I am pleased to say I can't wait to read the next book. Just as soon as I thought I had everything figured out, a new twist would keep me guessing. Not knowing a thing about quilting didn't affect the read at all. The detail and fresh take on this almost lost art has made me want to learn to quilt as well. I even went as far as signing up for a beginner class. I will certainly be reading more of this series and look forward to others by this author as well.
