"There are so many good things to say about Three Good Things. It's a warm, witty, and wise story of sisters on their journey through love and life. Wendy Francis's new novel is as delicious as the kringles made in Ellen's bakeshop." ~Susan Wiggs, #1 NYT best-selling author of the Lakeshore Chronicles
"A work of  fiction about characters who could be your next-door neighbors. . . .Like Ellen's pastries described in mouthwatering detail, the book is warm and comforting." ~Kirkus Reviews
 "A toothsome tale of two Wisconsin sisters. . . . Francis, whose former career in book editing finds an outlet in The Singular Kringle's grammar tip of the day, has produced a debut as light, sweet, and fluffy as Danish pastry dough." ~Library Journal
"A flavorful tale of sisters and second chances, fresh starts and sweet surprises. Wendy Francis has written a rich debut, sure to delight the lucky readers who discover her here." ~Barbara O'Neal, author of How to Bake a Perfect Life

"As sweet, rich, and comforting as a Danish kringle, spiced with lots of good surprises." ~Nancy Thayer, bestselling author of Heat Wave

"Ellen and Lanie are great characters, being both sister- and mother-figure to each other. . . .Ellen's journey, an engaging one." ~Booklist

"A lovely story about people you wish were your next-door neighbors. Curl up with this book, along with a cup of tea and a kringle (what else?) and lose yourself in a world you won't want to leave after you turn the last page." ~Eileen Goudge, author of The Replacement Wife

"A heartwarming novel . . .sure to please fans of contemporary women's fiction. . . . What really drew me in. . .was the easy and loving relationship between (sisters) Lanie and Ellen." ~Book Reviews and More by Kathy

"Though Ellen and Lanie wade through murky waters, the narrative's sweetness blends perfectly with its occasional tartness . . . and ends up creating something special."

"I loved reading about these two sisters who truly want the best for each other. A little women's fiction and a little chick lit. . .. readers of both genres would enjoy." ~Kritter's

"A very satisfying story with relatable characters and an ending that was sweet and hopeful without being too saccharine."

"A delicate confection." 4 stars ~Mina's Bookshelf

"When real characters come to life like in this book, it reminds me why I love reading so much: reading about people I would love to meet in real life."

"A light, fun, read. . . .great for a lazy Sunday afternoon. . . .a good pick for book clubs."

"About finding out and remembering what's most important in life." ~Bookfan

"[Francis] did a good job of making me feel as if the sisters Ellen and Lanie were talking directly to me (or at least in my kitchen)."

"Beautiful. . . . The driving force in this book is love and, well, kringle!  . . .Looking for something positive and yet not a cookie cutter feel good storyline? This could fit your needs!"
