You absolutely can't go wrong with a Debbie Macomber novel and the stories about Blossom Street are excellent. Each book gives you the opportunity to meet real people, with down to earth problems that could well be your own. Couple that with the warmth, friendship, and true-to-life experiences so cleverly depicted and you, as the reader, feel a part of it all from opening the book to the final page.

A Good Yarn
I was introduced to "A Good Yarn" by my next door neighbor about a year ago. I really, really enjoyed the book. At the time I wasn't aware that it was a series of 3 books (maybe only 2 at that time). Anyway, I since have purchased all 3 of the books in the series. I have been knitting for many years, and sometimes you kind of get away from it and out of the mood to knit. By reading these 3 books, I have gotten back to my knitting and I am going to join a knitting group tomorrow. I enjoyed hearing about all of the different characters in the book, and feel like I know most of them personally. I have purchased over 25 books by Debbie Macomber in the last 3 weeks. I recommend all of her books to everyone I talk to. The "Good Yarn" and "Blossom Street" series are so down to earth, its just like reading about your own family. Thank you for listening to me.
Publishers Weekly, 2005-04-11 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 divorcee, 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.
