Blossom Street Brides Book Review

I was so excited to find a new book on the shelf when I went to the library.  I realize that I might be a little slow but because I love so many series, I am horrible at keeping up with when new books are released.  Blossom Street Brides: A Blossom Street Novel by Debbie Macomber is the next book in the Blossom Street series.  I hadn't read this series in so long that it was nice to get back with some old friends and I was instantly back in the wonderful small town.

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.

There was more amazing writing with more amazing characters in this installment of the Blossom Street series.  I really enjoyed getting to know the new character, Lauren through all of her life struggles.  I was pulling for her the whole way through and hoping that things turned out the best possible way for her.  Lauren waited for over three years for Todd to make a serious commitment to her instead of his job but it never happened.  Sadly, it was her sister's life and not her own that turned her around to make a decision for herself.  I guess it is often the case in real life that we base our decisions on external forces instead of making the decisions that are best for our life but either way, she ended up making changes in her life to live happier.  In the end, it is fun to see how all the newly married Blossom Street brides end of connecting in the end and I am sure that there is another installment to get to know more fun residents and I can't wait.  I hope that you enjoy this book as much as I did!  Add this to your reading list and pick it up at your local library or bookstore soon.
