Starting Now: A Blossom Street Novel by Debbie Macomber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Debbie Macomber has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I have not read the Blossom Street Series, but I would like to go back to my local library and get all of the back stories!
"For years Libby Morgan
dreamed only of making partner in her competitive, high-pressure law
firm. She sacrificed everything for her career—her friends, her
marriage, her chance at creating a family. When her boss calls Libby
into his office, she assumes it will finally be good news, but nothing
can prepare her for the shocking reality: She’s been let go and must
rebuild her entire life . . . starting now.
With no job
prospects in sight, Libby reaches out to old friends and spends her
afternoons at A Good Yarn, the local knitting store. There she forms a
close bond with Lydia, the sweet-natured shop owner; Lydia’s spirited
teenage daughter, Casey; and Casey’s best friend, Ava, a shy yet
troubled girl who will shape Libby’s future in surprising and profound
As A Good Yarn becomes a second home—and the women a new
kind of family—Libby relishes the different person she’s become. She
even finds time for romance with a charming and handsome doctor who
seems to be her perfect match. But just as everything is coming
together, Libby must make a choice that could forever change the life
she holds so dear."
This is really an adorable story. I'm not sure if I was expecting more, or if I just wasn't in the best mind-set to read this book. I loved the characters, the descriptions and the story line. The part I had trouble with was the quick build up and then disappointment to the almost adoption. I just felt like it wasn't clearly expressed and clearly delivered to the reader.
This luke-warm read will not keep me from enjoying the rest of the Blossom Street Series!
