Blossom Street Brides

About The Book:  #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber has won the hearts of millions of readers with her moving and inspiring stories. Now wedding bells are ringing in the tight-knit community that gathers around A Good Yarn, a store in a pretty Seattle neighborhood. Knitters come to the store to buy yarn and patterns but somehow they leave richer in friendship and love.
Lauren Elliott has waited years for her long-term boyfriend, Todd, to propose, yet he seems more focused on his career than their relationship. When Lauren learns that her younger sister is pregnant before she herself even has an engagement ring, she feels overjoyed yet disheartened. Knowing she can’t put her future on hold, Lauren prepares to make a bold choice—one that leads her to a man she never dreamed she’d meet.  Newly married to her second husband, Max, Bethanne Scranton is blissfully in love. But with Max’s job in California and Bethanne’s in Seattle, their long-distance marriage is becoming difficult to maintain. To complicate matters, Bethanne’s cunning ex will do anything to win her back.  Lydia Goetz, too, is wonderfully happy with her husband, Brad, though lately she worries about the future of A Good Yarn. As she considers how to bring in business, she discovers that someone has beaten her to the punch. Baskets of yarn are mysteriously popping up all over town, with instructions to knit a scarf for charity and bring it into Lydia’s store. Never before has her shop received so much attention, but who hatched this brilliant plan?  As three women’s lives intersect in unexpected ways, Lydia, Lauren, and Bethanne realize that love heals every heart, and the best surprises still lay ahead.

My Thoughts On The Book:  I started reading Debbie Macomber's books when a friend put one in my hand at a local book sale.  I loved it and was hooked.  I began her Blossom Street series when I decided to take up crocheting and began to have a fascination with yarns.  I  did not know until this book that Debbie Macomber not only writes novels, but is also a knitter and knitwear pattern designer. I have to be honest and say that this was not the best book I have ever read but it was enjoyable and it had a happy ending. I love the whole yarn shop connection of the book and that these ladies all weave in and out of each other's lives due to their love of knitting.  Each time I have read one of these books I have the urge to find a yarn shop in my neighborhood and connect with women like this.  I know it is fiction, but I feel it does happen when people come together with a common love.  I am delighted that I chose to I ordered and read this book.  I am waiting impatiently for her next book.
