Macomber’s latest Blossom Street tale begins with a new knitting class at the shop Lydia Goetz owns in downtown Seattle. Lydia’s business is doing well, and in attendance are Susannah, who runs the flower shop next door; Colette, a young widow who lives upstairs; and Alix Townsend, a baker and former hoodlum engaged to a future minister. Lydia always tries to encourage friendship among her pupils, but this group is none too warm. Colette’s reticence is attributed to grief, but she is actually in hiding. Alix is trying her best to please her future in-laws, but as the wedding draws near, worries mount.
Another easy read from Macomber, I demolished this in a day. I think I’ve missed the middle book in this series, but no huge loss, as it”s virtually a standalone.
I like the pattern in the front, but wouldn’t dare to attempt to stitch it!
