The Debbie Macomber "Blossom Street" books aren't the type of books that will change your life. But what they are is a very sweet, nice read that will make you feel good. Sort of in an "aww..that's so sweet and life is good" kind of way.

These books revolve around a yarn shop in Seattle and highli... ...more

I enjoyed this second installment in the Blossom Street series even more than the first. Debbie Macomber's characters feel like real women to me. I can see each one of them and I'd love to know them.

Being as I have liked some movies I've seen that were based on books by this author, I wanted to give it anoth... ...more

A couple of years ago I saw a Blossom Street book in a bag of books that had been delivered to my Grandmother from the library. For some reason the author (Macomber) and the cover stayed in my head. When my grandmother passed away last year, I read one of the latter books in this series to feel c... ...more
