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. Now, 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!
This was the first Macomber book I heard and it got me hooked on all of her books. I am a huge fan and have since listened to all of the books she has. I can't wait for more.
My first Macomber book, great narrator, story and characters
I really enjoyed this book. I now want to read more of Debbie's books. It was recommended because I liked books by Fannie Flagg and Billie Lettes. The narrator is wonderful-she cracks me up how she does the guy voices! I like how each chapter revolves around one of the three characters-lots of fun. It was even a bit emotional at times. I only wish the writer had paid a bit more attention to detail with one of the characters secret pregnancies to make it a little more real-but otherwise, it was enjoyable. Found myself listening to it in the car and sneaking off to bed early each night to finish it.
