New York Times best-selling 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, Cobbled Court Quilts 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 a marriage proposal. Garrett’s the closest thing to perfect she’s ever known, but what about her own imperfections? The only happy marriage Liza has 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.

I love this series, but find the Lyla character so frustrating. I just want to yell at her. Guess that is the idea of a good storyline.
The least interesting was the indecision of Lyla
Love the series, wouldn't have wated to miss it
Yes,. It had movement and grit and touched my emotions in so many ways.
The point where Liza and Garrett, announce they wouldn't be getting married to the awaiting family.
When Liza comes to realization of her own fragility and stands up for herself again, without the wall of sarcasm and hurt. Just herself, broken, fragile, and unsure.
This is one of the best series I have ever purchased.
All of the characters are richly developed. They are not stereotypical but more like real friends. I really hated for the book to end.
These characters have been encouraging to me in my own sometimes difficult life. I find solace in listening to them as they resolve their struggles. They all feel like regular friends by the end of the book.
I have enjoyed the continuation of the Cobbled Court Series. Again, Ms. Bostwick allows us to get to know these characters even more intimately and share in their joys and fears. She knows each person very well and gives voice to their changes through life. The narrators do a wonderful job of distinguishing each character as well.
The story line was a bit predictable - -I thought of where it was going long before we got there. Some of the characters were a bit naggy but that does fit with the story so it is OK. Over all was good. I'd recommend the series.
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
The book was fun and if you love the Cobbled Court Series, you will love this book as well. It is always fun to visit New Bern with my old friends!
Yes, I'll probably listen to the entire series sometime down the road.
Each of these narrators play one of the 2 main charactors, and do a magnificent job I must say! The personalities of each really shine through.
I've enjoyed all the Cobble Court books. I've already listened to all 5 and enjoyed each of them. I love that all the charactors from the previous books are still here, although their roles play minor parts, they are still an important part of the main charactors lives.
You could read this book as a stand alone and not wonder who or what role each of the charactors play in the story, but it's better to read them as a series starting with book 1.
Marie Bostwick has done a wonderful job of keeping everything streamline and without gaps or repeatetive discriptions.
