With so much to do between running her shop and spending time with her new boyfriend, it's amazing Angie is able to help organize the Rolling Brook library's annual book sale. Luckily she's working alongside brash librarian Austina Shaker, a lady who isn't afraid to make waves to get books to her patrons - even the Amish. Unfortunately this draws the ire of cranky Bartholomew Belier, an Old Order Amish bishop who publicly vows to ruin Austina.
Angie's parents are visiting Rolling Brook for Christmas - but unfortunately her ex is joining them. Luckily Angie has no time to dwell on her romantic troubles as she prepares her store, Running Stitch, for the town's traditional progressive dinner, featuring a sleigh ride stopping at each shop for a different course of the meal.
"Held my breath..."
Angie is finding her niche as the new owner of her late aunt's Amish quilt shop, Running Stitch. But as the summer is winding down, so is business. To bolster support for the shop, Angie decides to sell her quilts in the Rolling Brook Amish Auction, including some of her aunt's most prized works.
"this was great!"
With her snazzy cowboy boots and her ornithophobic French bulldog, Angie doesn't exactly fit in with the predominantly Amish community in Rolling Brook, but her aunt's quilting circle tries to make her feel welcome as she prepares for the reopening of Running Stitch.
Spring has arrived in Holmes County, and Angie couldn't be happier. She's got great friends and a thriving business and is in the perfect relationship with Sheriff James Mitchell. The only thing raining on her parade is her mother drafting her into a massive home renovation project - and using their sudden mother-daughter bonding time to comment on Angie's ticking biological clock.
"Probably the best yet!"
