Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Macomber continues her long-running knitting series set on Blossom Street with Lauren Elliott learning that her younger, married sister is pregnant. Lauren determines that she will never be a mother if she stays with her ­long-term boyfriend. After seeing a baby blanket in the window of A Good Yarn, Lauren decides to knit one for her sister’s baby, and there she meets the recently married Bethanne, whose new husband, Max, who lives in California, shows up with attractive bad boy Rooster, the antithesis of Lauren’s ex-­boyfriend. Meanwhile, Casey, the adopted teen daughter of Lydia, the proprietor of A Good Yarn, is experiencing horrible nightmares, while her grandmother is losing her mind to dementia. The yarn store is barely meeting its expenses when, suddenly, baskets of knitting with A Good Yarn labels start turning up around town with an invitation to help knit a scarf for charity. Macomber’s ­nondenominational-inspirational women’s novel, with its large cast of characters will resonate with fans of the popular series but may leave new readers with the feeling of being strangers at the party. --Diana Tixier Herald

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The theme of this book seems to be mother-daughter wars with some brides and baby action thrown in. Our old friends from Blossom Street in Seattle are back and as usual it all revolves around the yarn shop. The pink and cream roses on the cover fit well with the warm fuzzy feeling a Debbie Macomber books leaves you with when you are finished.

Lydia at the yarn shop is dealing with emotional problems her adopted daughter has and with her aging mother's failing health. Lauren, who works at the jewelry shop nearby is dealing with angst over her younger sister's pregnancy and her boyfriend who is dragging his feet as well as her friend and boss who is having an emotional storm over her young daughter's pregnancy and insistence that she is in love with the father and wants to make her own decisions. Another friend, Bethane is dealing with being apart so much from her new husband and her daughter's insistence that her new husband is a mistake and she should reunite with the girl's father, her ex. There is much soul searching before it all resolves into a happy place.

Simple as these books are, you can't put them down. My favorite part of them is that there is no soft porn which so many romance novels are full of these days. The story is the important part and it is not strengthened by adding that stuff. In my opinion, the story is enhanced by not having that and leaving it to the reader's imagination. It shows the quality of the story teller that she doesn't have to use that sort of thing to sell her books -- they sell on the strength of the tale itself.

Visiting Blossom Street again reminds me why Debbie Macomber is such a popular author. She writes about real people with all of their warts and halos. Her characters are folks we know: the cancer survivor, the parent of a troubled teen, the aging parents, the blended families, the jealous exs and the lonely singles. She reminds us that we all have issues to solve and that with love and patience, we can overcome almost anything. I recommend this book to all Macomber fans and to tose who want an enjoying romantic read.

Format: Hardcover
Blossom Street Brides, the latest installment of Macomber's popular Blossom Street series, is a bit of a stretch, both in title and content. One would think from the cover and title that there was a wedding in the story, but really there isn't. All the brides in the book eloped and did a quickie. As for content, I was surprised that Macomber brought back the tired subject of Bethanne, her ex-husband Grant, and their daughter from hell, Annie. If you thought Annie was whiny and annoying in A Turn in the Road, she's even more so in this book. Though she's a 20-something college graduate, she's still pitching fits and whining about how her mommy and daddy are divorced. In the book, she and Grant team up to try and get Bethanne to divorce Max and go back to Grant. Well, actually, they don't care if Bethanne divorces Max, so long as she agrees to have a relationship with Grant also. Kind of like a kinky threesome but more permanent. Bethanne is slightly more resistant to Grant's attempts to seduce her this time around, but she comes off as selfish and self-centered when she insists that Max has to move his business to Seattle so she can keep her own company and be near her family. Max is required to make all the sacrifices, which includes financially ruining his business and having to play third wheel to Bethanne and Grant as they enjoy their first grandchild. But like the trooper he is, Max caves and meets all of Bethanne's unreasonable demands so she can keep her own cushy life in place.

The second main character in the book is Lauren Elliott, a woman who has been waiting for her longtime boyfriend Todd to propose. She becomes involved with Max's best friend Rooster and the two fall in love.

If you have read any of Ms. Macomber’s other books from the Blossom Street Series you will be familiar with some of the previous characters mentioned. Lydia Gomez owns the friendly and popular A Good Yarn store. Max and Bethanne are married, in love but live miles apart making their long distance marriage extremely difficult.

We are introduced to Lauren, who is in her mid thirties and has been dating Todd for quite some time. Todd seems to have excuses to commit and is interested in advancing in his career before he can move on in their relationship. Lauren gets a call from her younger sister telling her she is pregnant. After she hangs up, Lauren realizes that she has wasted a lot of time and decides to take matters into her own hands.. It makes Lauren realize that she is the only person who can control what she wants to happen in her life and is shocked at some of the things that are totally unexpected that she will be facing.

Bethanne and Max are newlyweds but have more of long distance marriages, which definitely cannot continue the way it is. They have to sit down and decide what is best for them in order to make it work. It won’t be easy but one of them is going to have to change for this marriage to remain strong.

Lydia is having some problems with her daughter Casey, who was in many foster care homes, before Lydia and her husband adopted her.

When you take these three women and put them together you have a very interesting mix of love, surprises, sadness and happiness all combined. It makes for very enjoyable reading.
