This was a refreshing, light read. Especially after reading Travis Thrasher’s Ghostwriter. This is the 5th book in the Blossom Street series. Lydia Goetz owns A Good Yarn in Seattle Washington. She has decided to start up the Knit to Quit class. Everyone who joins wants to quit something and start a new chapter in their lives.
Phoebe Rylander joins the class to get over her unfaithful, manipulative ex-fiance.
Alix Turner joins the class to quit smoking so that she and her husband can have a baby.
Bryan Hutchinson “Hutch” the local executive of Rainier chocolates joins the class for stress relief purposes.
In addition to the details of the class members lives, the book tells the complications in the lives of Anne Marie Roche, who has adopted a little girl, and Lydia herself who ends up an unexpected foster mother to a 12- year old.
This was a great read. It was very similar to Marie Bostwick’s A Single Thread. It was told from 5 different points of view, but it was still easy to follow. What was more impressive is that I actually cared for the characters in a short period of time. I found myself, saying “No Phoebe! Forget him! Be strong!” and that sort of thing. So if you are looking for an inspiring read, pick this one up.
This book will be available for purchase in May!!
