I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Summer on Blossom Street

Summer on Blossom Street
Debbie Macomber

hardcover, library edition
April 2009
368 pages

book 5 of the Blossom Street Series

Debbie takes us back to where it all started. The Yarn Shop. Lydia offers a class called Knit to Quit for people who want to quit something-or someone!

Phoebe recently ended her engagement to a man who doesn't know the meaning of faithful.

Alix is trying to quit smoking. Again.

Bryan joins on the advice of his doctor as a way to deal with stress.

In addition to the drama of the class members, Anne Marie and her adopted daughter Ellen have an unexpected visitor.

There is enough going on to satisfy those of us who have read all the books and were looking forward to seeing old friends while at the same time the book would be enjoyable if it is your first Blossom Street book. The characters are real and the situations believable even though I thought Phoebe's ex is a real-something-else!
