There’s a new shop on Seattle’s Blossom Street—a flower store called Susannah’s Garden, right next door to A Good Yarn. Susannah Nelson, the owner, has just hired a young widow named Colette Blake. A couple of months earlier, Colette had abruptly quit her previous job—after a brief affair with her boss. To her dismay, he’s suddenly begun placing weekly orders for flower arrangements!

Susannah and Colette both join Lydia Goetz’s new knitting class. Lydia’s previous classes have forged lasting friendships, and this one is no exception. But Lydia and her sister, Margaret, have worries of their own. Margaret’s daughter, Julia, has been the victim of a random carjacking, and the entire family is thrown into emotional chaos.

Then there’s Alix Townsend. Her wedding to Jordan Turner is only months away—but she’s not sure she can go through with it. Her love for Jordan isn’t in question; what she can’t handle is the whole wedding extravaganza engineered by her mentor, Jacqueline, with the enthusiastic cooperation of her future mother-in-law. A reception at the country club and hundreds of guests she’s never even met—it’s just not Alix.

Like everyone else in Lydia’s knitting class, Alix knows there’s a solution to every problem…and that another woman can usually help you find it!

    " Let me preface my review with the circumstance under which I came to own the audiobook of "Back on Blossom Street.". I was at Sam's Club with my mom on the day I planned to make a solo journey of 362 miles from my Mom's house to my current location. I love a good audiobook to accompany me on the 6 hour drive. The selection was poor - lots of JD Robb and Danielle Steel. I don't mind either author, but wanted something more than what they had to offer. I was ready to walk away when my mother exclaimed, "I love Debbie Macomber! I will buy that one for you if you bring it back next time you come.". Well, what kind of idiot turns down a free book? So there I was, driving, listening to Lydia Getz tell me all about her yarn store and the ladies knitting group. It started out all right, but quickly moved into the cliched and prescribed narrative I expected from a book that was $6.96 at the Sam's Club. It wasn't groundbreaking, it didn't push me to think, and the reader's voice made all the characters sound as though they were impersonating Katherine Hepburn. It's 5 hours I won't get back, but at least I had some company on the long drive home. "

    " The characters from the Blossom Street series are back with a few new additions. A quick read about these women who are all connected by knitting classes they have taken at The Good Yarn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clara | 2/13/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 2/9/2014

    " Picked this up at the paperback exchange at my local library and didn't realize it was number 4 in a series. Will look for the first 3 books soon as I liked the characters and the writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/15/2014

    " If I hadn't read the other two Blossom Street books and a couple of her other books I might have liked this one more. But I'm tired of seeing the same women in the same plots with the same solutions. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gabrielle | 12/11/2013
