Debbie Macomber's books are sort of a guilty pleasure in that I sometimes feel like I should be reading something with a little more substance or depth. Maybe something a little less predictable. But sometimes it's just nice to know that everything will end just fine and most of the characters will live happily ever after. Reading a Macomber novel is like watching a Hallmark movie - simple, pleasant, and not many surprises. There are times when that's exactly what I need. Blossom Street Brides w ...more
“We are family” – it’s the title of a 1979 dance hit song by Sister Sledge but it sums up the feeling I get when I pick up a new Blossom Street book. Blossom Street Brides is #10 in the series, with every story spinning out from Debbie Macomber’s core metaphor that friends are family. Even more interestingly, that members of your family aren’t necessarily your friends—as adults, we have the opportunity to re-examine and re-visit the hurts and joys of childhood and if we do the hard work, perhap ...more

Blossom Street Brides is the tenth book in the Blossom Street series by popular American author, Debbie Macomber. Lydia Goetz, proprietor of A Good Yarn in Blossom Street, is concerned. Her adopted daughter, Casey is having terrifying nightmares with increasing frequency, and her mother, Mary Lou seems to be rapidly deteriorating, both physically and mentally. She is also intrigued: someone is leaving Knit Me baskets around the town with needles, yarn and instructions for a simple scarf for char ...more

I have been a fan of Debbie Macomber for a long time now. I have even had the pleasure of meeting her twice. Wow, it was a great experience. So whenever I see she has a new book coming out I just can not wait to get my hands on it to read.

I have had the opportunity to read most of the Blossom Street series books and I have enjoyed each of them. I really enjoyed the catching up with some old friends in Blossom Street Brides.

Debbie Macomber has a way of making her writing feel like home. Once again, we are swept into real world situations and given a front row seat to the struggles of love and marriage. Blossom Street Brides is simply real life experienced by fictional characters. You don't get a glossed over picture but true human emotions, struggles and triumphs. This story was an intimate perspective of new marriages, marriages struggling and marriages that seems to be going well. I found this story to be a quick ...more
I received a free download of "Blossom Street Brides (Blossom Street #10), by Bebbie Macomber through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. This is a contemporary romance novel that is a real treat for the reader. I have to admit that I read mostly mystery suspense thrillers, and some romance novels, that hold my interest...and I felt right at home reading this novel. I loved it!

This novel revolves around three woman; Lauren, Lydia and Bethanee, their passion for life, their relationships

If you know me at all, you may know that I do not read much general market fiction. Most of my reading hours are spent in the Christian Fiction, and mostly Christian Historical Fiction world. There is about a handful of authors that I make exception for in the general market and Debbie Macomber is one of those, especially when it comes to her Blossom Street series, which I own all of! One of the things that I love about this series is that each book could easily stand on it’s own two covers and

If you havent read the other books in this series, this book would be fine as a "stand alone" book.

In this book, we meet Lauren, who works near the yarn shop and has waited years for her boyfriend to propose. She has to make a decision on whether to keep seeing him or break up with him...
It was nice visiting again with Bethanne and Max. They love each other very much but Bethanne's ex-husband keeps interfering!

It was pleasant to be back with the residents of Blossom Street. Once again, Debbie was able to spin a tale about the lives of the people there giving them real life issues to overcome. We find that some people are falling in love, while other relationships end. Casey doesn't seem to be feeling secure in her adoptive home and begins to have nightmares. Lydia worries about her mom's failing health and long distance relationships are strained. The personalities that Debbie invents are spot on and ...more

This review is based on an ARC provided to me by the publisher.
I'd like to visit Blossom Street. Everytime I read a Debbie Macomber book I feel like I am right there with all of the familiar places and characters. In this episode we get a look at marriages, some going well, some on the rocks and two just starting out. A quick read and an enjoyable diversion. I will certainly read her next book.

My favorite part of the book was only a tiny subplot but very clever. Knitting baskets complete with yarn, needles and instructions to knit as much as you want and drop off the completed item at a homeless shelter were left in numerous public places.

Tenth in the Blossom Street romance series set in Seattle. The new couple focus is on Lauren Elliott and Rooster Wayne while a married couple focus is on Bethanne and Max dealing with family and ex-family issues.

I did receive this as an advanced reading copy.

My Take
It’s a community with everyone having problems, a mother with Alzheimer’s, a foster-care daughter suffering teen angst with confidence issues, exes and the hassles they bring, and children, people, who are making their own decisions.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

In the latest book in the Blossom Street series, Debbie Macomber focuses on two ladies that we have seen before in this series, Lydia and Bethanne, and one new lady, Lauren. Lydia's story focuses on helping her adopted daughter who has been having nightmares and figuring out how to improve the business at her yarn store. Bethanne's story focus

This book was about the lives of three separate women who all eventually became really great friends. They all worked on Blossom Street where their paths crossed quite frequently. Lydia and Brad Goetz adopted Casey three years ago. Casey has a recurring nightmare and it's starting to come more frequently. She won't tell Lydia what the dream is about and her attitude has gotten way out of control leaving Lydia and Brad at their wits end. There is also a bit of a mystery because someone is leaving ...more

This is a bit terrifying.

I feel a bit bad...but I couldn't stand it anymore. Blossom Street Brides was one of the most irritatingly dull books I've read in recent history. I made it to 54%, wondering when on earth it would be over.

I'm going to skip a more traditional review of this book because I simply want to tear this page out of my review notebook and pretend I never saw this

Oh no! I had to make a new bookshelf for romance. (The library has tons of this stuff apparently).

This was my first Knitting store Romance. It seems there are about 10 more in this series and one theme is that a few knitting baskets are strategically left all around an area of Seattle. It's fun to guess which character might be doing it.

This is the story of 3 families.
One lady (Lydia) owns a knitting store and has an adopted 15 year old daughter (along with her husband and younger son). This t

"Blossom Street Brides" by Debbie Macomber was truly another one of this author's good reads of 'struggles of love and marriage.' I found this novel to be for me an enjoyable one that was so interesting I found it hard to put down because there was so much going on you would be left wondering what was going to happen next.

Lauren, Lydia and Bethanee. Three women have something in common: the passion for knitting. And that's the place where they meet each other, at the shop A Good Yarn, where Lydia is the owner.
Lydia is married to Brad and they have two children: Cod , Brad's son of his first marriage, and Casey, a beautiful young girl adopted at 12 years old. Casey has experienced problems with nightmares, fear that can be returned to any other foster care. Casey is every day more attached to her grandmother, who

Another great entry in the Blossom Street series. I love that you see a new person, Lauren, who is having issues with her long time beau and who interacts with established characters like Lydia and Bethanne. Lauren finally dumps her foot dragging guy and meets Rooster, the biker/wine entrepreneur when he comes with Max to see Bethanne. Lauren and rooster connect quickly but issues arise after an impulsive trip down the altar.

Bethanne is having problems of her own. Her marriage to Max is sufferin

I really enjoy the Blossom Street books and this was no exception. This book follows three women, two who we've become familiar with in previous books. I liked that we learned more about Lydia and Bethanne, and where their lives have taken them. Like all of Macomber's books this is a heartwarming story that does cover real issues such as with Lydia's adopted daughter Casey and the struggles she goes through in dealing with her past.

This wasn't my first visit to Blossom Street, although it has been a while and I haven't read all of the Blossom Street books. This was classic Debbie. She has a way of writing that makes you feel like you actually know the characters and you feel the same pain and joy they are feeling. I like the community feel of Debbie's books. This book was no different. This book gave glimpses into the lives a several different people and families. Debbie also does really well portraying real life struggles
Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews
I really enjoy Debbie's books and this one is no exception. I didn't realize it was the 10th in the series and while I am usually fastidious about reading a series in order, this book can be read as a standalone. There is enough back story filled in so you don't feel totally lost.

The characters seem so down to earth but with their own issues and quirks. No not everything is perfect in everyone's life, but they are issue we may all have to deal with at one time or another. For me, it is a feel go

We're back on Blossom Street with Debbie Macomber who has written another fun, feel good novel with happy endings. I love the characters this author creates... so real and likeable... well... most of them. Interesting people with real issues living in a town that makes you wish you could be one of its citizens.

I read it in one afternoon as I do with most of Debbie's books. You won't be disappointed in this delightful yarn.

Cute, as are most of DM's books. To be honest, this one just didn't have much going for it. It seemed to really drag towards the middle and I just couldn't handle the whole Max-Annie-Grant-Bethanne drama after there was an entire book based on just that particular love quadrilateral. I think it may be time to wrap up Blossom Street...
