If you love the series of books about the shops on Blossom Street, then you will also love this one. The lead character is a wife, mom of almost grown kids, and daughter to a mom who is showing her age. She starts thinking of the what ifs in her life when she has to go home to move mom to an assisted living home. There is a bit of mystery and some romance, but mostly it is about finding yourself again once the kids are not taking all your time, and finding that guy you used to love that you are still married to. I loved it.
Thsi book was a very easy read that had you guessing throughout, but not really in a mystery-book sort of way. Macomber's writing is very easy to follow, not too embellished, and perfect for when you want a light read. This book is no exception. It is intended to be before Back to Blossom which I am reading next, and ties into Blossom Street/Good Yarn.
As with The Shop on Blossom Street, the characters come to life in this story as well. I could relate to each of the women in this book, even though they had a few years on me. There is a mystery, some romance, and a snotty kid who knows everything. This book certainly kept my interest, as I read it in a day.
Debbie never fails to make her characters come alive. The spin at the end of this book is worth staying up all night reading.
Debbie Macomber writes another great book. From dealing with older teens and aging parents, to wondering about "what might have been", it is a story many of us can relate to.
