Macomber revisits the cozy Seattle yarn store of 2004's The Shop on Blossom Street in another heartfelt tale of crafts and camaraderie. After a slow beginning, this sequel clips along satisfyingly, as shop owner Lydia, a cancer survivor, and her no-nonsense sister, Margaret, meet three new and conveniently quite different friends and bond over the complications of life. Overweight, depressed teenager Courtney Pulanski has found herself plopped into a new town for her senior year, living with her grandma while her dad works in Brazil. Bethanne Hamlin, a recent divorcée, and Elise Beaumont, who's been single for years, are both still suffering from their broken marriages. Serving as sounding boards and sources of endless support for each other, the women find friendship and, of course, resolution for their problems (the latter a little too easily). Readers will miss The Shop on Blossom Street's spirited Jacqueline, who plays a minor role here, and a few things—like the character of Elise's ex-husband, Maverick—strain credibility. But the author's trademark warm treatment of the lives of women will satisfy her readers. Despite occasional draughts of treacle and a too-easy denouement, this should be another Macomber bestseller.

Following on the success of The Shop on Blossom Street (2005), Macomber offers another tale of women meeting and becoming good friends in a knitting class. When Lydia Hoffman, owner of A Good Yarn, offers a class in knitting socks, Elise Beaumont, a self--contained and efficient divorced woman in her sixties, appears. Embroiled in a lawsuit, she has little patience with the foibles of others. Meanwhile, Bethanne Hamlin's husband left her for another woman on Valentine's Day. Bethanne's spent her life making a good home for her family, and now, bereft of self-esteem and support, she has to find a job. And, finally, there's Courtney Pulanski, who's come to live with her grandmother for her senior year of high school. After her mother's death four years ago, Courtney went a little wild and stuffed all her emotions down with food; now she's alone, overweight, and unhappy. But soon an unbreakable bond is formed among the knitters in this sweet and poignant story of real women with real problems becoming real friends. Maria Hatton
