Blossom Street Brides: A Blossom Street Novel  #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber has won the hearts of millions of readers with her moving and inspiring stories. Now wedding bells are ringing in the tight-knit community that gathers around A Good Yarn, a store in a pretty Seattle neighborhood. Knitters come to the store to buy yarn and patterns but somehow they leave richer in friendship and love.

Lauren Elliott has waited years for her long-term boyfriend, Todd, to propose, yet he seems more focused on his career than their relationship. When Lauren learns that her younger sister is pregnant before she herself even has an engagement ring, she feels overjoyed yet disheartened. Knowing she can’t put her future on hold, Lauren prepares to make a bold choice—one that leads her to a man she never dreamed she’d meet.

Newly married to her second husband, Max, Bethanne Scranton is blissfully in love. But with Max’s job in California and Bethanne’s in Seattle, their long-distance marriage is becoming difficult to maintain. To complicate matters, Bethanne’s cunning ex will do anything to win her back.

Lydia Goetz, too, is wonderfully happy with her husband, Brad, though lately she worries about the future of A Good Yarn. As she considers how to bring in business, she discovers that someone has beaten her to the punch. Baskets of yarn are mysteriously popping up all over town, with instructions to knit a scarf for charity and bring it into Lydia’s store. Never before has her shop received so much attention, but who hatched this brilliant plan?

As three women’s lives intersect in unexpected ways, Lydia, Lauren, and Bethanne realize that love heals every heart, and the best surprises still lay ahead.

MY REVIEW:
     Debbie does it again She captures your heart with her “yarn” telling stories, of love, longing, pain, fear, regrets, anticipation, and hopes.
     A lot of the old characters are there still on Blossom Street that we all remember. Just a little older and wiser doling out advice in hopes of helping those walking in their paths.  Lydia from A Good Yarn, is there still helping her family and the community, yet still feeling like she can’t help enough.  That she just can’t find the control that she needs to help those that she loves.
     There Bethanne who is struggling to keep her past life with her ex-husband from interfering with her future.  Max wants her to move to California out of fear that Grant is trying to weasel his way into her life and using Annie and Andrew to get there. 
     The love story that has so much going on is Rooster (John) Wayne, Max’s business partner & half owner of their winery and friend and Lauren Elliott a woman who has worked 5 years in a jewelry store.  She dated Todd a TV anchorman for 3 ½ years and he always promised that they would marry someday but he never ever asked her to marry him, never took her to meet his family, or his friend or really co-workers.
Rooster has had one failed marriage at a very young age and has no family for they both passed.
     Lauren and Rooster felt an instant connection and went out to dinner and Todd showed up and there was a confrontation.  When it was over, Rooster felt he was used by Lauren to make Todd jealous.  Todd had put that idea in Roosters head and he fell for it, was not the case and Lauren takes action to make it right.

     Debbie has mega stuff going on.  Come to Blossom Street to see old friends and check out what happens.  You won’t want to miss it that is for sure.  There was so much more I can’t even begin to tell you.  5 stars.  Provided by Netgalley.
