Visitors to Miracle Springs, North Carolina, find themselves ogling the display shelves in The Gingerbread House Bakery. They’ve heard that no one can bake a scone quite like Hester Winthrop. Her pastry is feather-light and buttery. Her flavors are fresh, vibrant, and perfectly spiced. If you’re lucky, she might make you a Comfort Scone—a scone customized with aromas and flavors drawn from one of your fondest memories. Hester believes in the healing power of food, especially when it’s made with love.
Love, loyalty, laughter, and shared secrets unite the members of the book club in The Secret, Book, and Scone Society novels. And food. Potluck suppers with lots of wine, coffee, pastry in the morning, impromptu lunches at the local diner—food is woven into almost every scene.
A scone can be eaten with one hand, which means that you can hold your book in the other. To the women of The Secret, Book, and Scone Society, it’s the perfect book club treat.
