*Starred Review* There is a reason that legions of Macomber fans ask for more Blossom Street books. They fully engage her readers as her characters discover happiness, purpose, and meaning in life. The ninth title, which stands well alone, focuses on Libby Morgan, a driven attorney who has eschewed everything and everybody in her pursuit of a partnership. Summoned to the managing partner’s office expecting a well-deserved promotion, she is devastated to be laid off and told to “enjoy life.” After fruitless months looking for a new job in a bad economy, she joins a gym and reconnects with an old law-school friend. At A Good Yarn, she reconnects with the love of knitting she had learned from her mother, who died when Libby was 13, and makes friends, including 13-year-old Ava, who recently lost her mother. An errand takes Libby to the hospital, where she is recruited to rock newborn babies and where she meets “heart-of-stone” Dr. Phillip Stone, who has also seen his devotion to work wipe out any personal life. Macomber’s feel-good novel, emphasizing interpersonal relationships and putting people above status and objects, is truly satisfying. --Diana Tixier Herald --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

This book is about a young single lawyer who thinks work is everything then quickly gets unemployed and her life basically turns around with a lot of bumps along the way. There is a little love story in it as well.
The minute I was heard listening to it.... I forgot both the store and the characters. Too bad, her books got so boring.
One of the things I appreciate about the author is that she almost always adds an Epilogue and doesn't leave the reader with questions unanswered. She really finishes the story. Maybe Libby Morgan will show up in the next Blossom Street book.
I would recommend this book and will probably read it again someday when life is "trying" and I need a "feel good" story to lighten my day.
