Blossom Street Brides by Debbie Macomber
(Ballantine Books, 2014, 318 pages)
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.
This is the 11th book in the Blossom Street series. I was really excited and looking forward to reading it. It was good, but to me, not as good as the previous Blossom Street books were. If you’re looking for a good summer read, this would definitely fit the bill, though. It was just a little too predicable for me. If you love a good sappy romance, then you will love this story. This didn’t at all take away how I feel about Debbie Macomber’s writing. I thinks she’s a fantastic writer, and I love reading her books 🙂
