Welcome to Too Much--where the women are strong-willed
and the men are handsome yet shiftless. Ever since Mary Dell
Templeton and her twin sister Lydia Dale were children,
their Aunt Velvet has warned them away from local boys. But
it's well known that the females in Mary Dell's family have
two traits in common--superior sewing skills and a fatal
weakness for men.
While Lydia Dale grows up petite
and pretty, Mary Dell just keeps growing. Tall, smart, and
sassy, she is determined to one day turn her love of sewing
into a business. Meanwhile, she'll settle for raising babies
with her new husband, Donny. But that dream proves elusive
too, until finally, Mary Dell gets the son she always
wanted--a child as different as he is wonderful. And as Mary
Dell is forced to reconsider what truly matters in her
family and her marriage, she begins to piece together a life
that, like the colorful quilts she creates, will prove
vibrant, rich, and absolutely unforgettable. . .

out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed
with an excuse that no one with half a brain would ever believe.
And as if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives
for her first class of her last college semester, she
recognizes her new theater professor.
She'd left him naked in her bed about eight hours earlier. . . .

This week the Mystery Writers of America announce their winners of the 2013 Edgars at a banquet held in New York. Widely acclaimed to be the crowning of the best in suspense and mystery, the Edgars (named after Edgar Rice Burroughs) celebrate the best writing in everything from television scripts to novels.
