Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Marie Bostwick welcomes listeners to the quirky, unforgettable town of Too Much, Texas, in a heartwarming, richly satisfying story about friendship and moving forward.

Mary Dell Templeton prefers the quiet charms of Too Much to the bright lights of Dallas any day. She's relieved to be moving back to her hometown - and bringing her cable TV show, Quintessential Quilting, with her. There are just a couple of wrinkles in her plan. Her son, Howard, who is her talented cohost and color consultant, and who happens to have Down syndrome, wants to stay in Dallas and become more independent. Meanwhile, Mary Dell's new boss hopes to attract a different demographic - by bringing in a younger cohost.

What Holly Silva knows about quilting wouldn't fill a thimble, but she's smart and ambitious. Her career hinges on outshining the formidable Mary Dell in order to earn her own show. Yet as Holly adapts to small-town living and begins a new romance, Mary Dell considers rekindling an old one, and the two find unlikely kinship. For as Mary Dell knows, the women of Too Much have a knack for untangling the knottiest problems when they work together. And sometimes the pattern for happiness is as simple and surprising as it is beautiful.

Real as Texas

This book resonates with me for various reasons. I was born in Limestone County, Texas, and am familiar with landscapes mentioned in the story-the blue bonnets in the spring and rolling hills. I've lived either in Waco or within 20 miles of Waco all my life and enjoyed trying to decide the locale of the ranch 80 miles from Dallas. I am a quilter and had to laugh at the man who commented he had never "seen a person with 4 sewing machines," as I have 3 Berninas and at least 8 Featherweights. The technical aspect rang true as did the motives and intentions of the quilters: no quilter can ever have too much fabric!!!! The story itself brought angst, anger, fear, joy and elation- a gauntlet of emotions that, thankfully, ended on a high note.

Marie nailed it!!

What a great story of life's triumphs! Marie is such an excellent story teller! The continuation of Mary Dell & her son Howard is a great read of a family that has multiple heartbreaks in life & just keeps plugging ahead to overcome & comes out on top over & over again!
Well done Marie!!

Dallas and The Waltons

The host of a quilting programme is being bullied by the directors to get a new, younger host to boost ratings. If she does, she'll have to lose her son with whom she has a great bond.

Her family has various problems of its own: senility, PTSD, bereavement; but hopefully the emergence of a previously amicable gent will aid the transitions.
