I think this is one of the best that Macomber has written. It was so hard to put
it down and wished it could've gone on forever.

This story was well written and an enjoyable read. One of my complaints, and this holds true for a lot of books in the romance genre, is that some of the things that happen in the story are a bit too predictable. A character walks onto the page and you know that it is a love match or can see the conflicts before they arise. As I just said, this isn't just for this novel in particular but romance in general. That being said, Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors. Although I can't say that I've read everything she has written I can say I've read the majority of her works and I always enjoy them. They help me feel a little more optimistic about life.

Of all of Debbie's series, I enjoy this one the best. Many of her other books make the women sound like whiny victims, but the voices on Blossom Street, are much stronger and more in control of their lives. Something that is very lacking in much of women's fiction.

Like the other books in this series, the comings and goings of enjoyable characters keeps me coming back. Book six takes us once again to the quilt shop where Lydia hosts a Knit to Quit class. This class if for people looking to quit something or maybe even someone.

With new characters and the reappearance of likable familiar ones, once again Macomber entwines just enough new with old and moves these woman forward into surprising new directions. Though each woman, and a man, move at their own pace, they are always brought back to where they need to be, whether it be expanding their horizons or knowing that home is always the best place to be, the women of Blossom Street are there for each other and on occasion bring new and exciting people with them on their journey.

I enjoyed revisiting the characters from [book:Twenty Wishes|2449962]. To see the progress made by Anne Marie and Ellen Roche: finding a father and a new man. To experience Lydia Goetz' fostering situation with Casey: lots of ups and downs but to be expected when the child was transferred from foster home to foster home. Alix and Jordan finally getting pregnant. And newbies Bryan Hutchinson and Phoebe Rylander falling in love. A typical chick-lit story with predictable happy endings for all.

Any fan of the Blossom Street books will love this addition to the series. This time around Lydia is offering a class for people who want to quit something. We get a catch-up with the lives of Lydia, Alix and Ann Marie. In addition, new characters Phoebe and Bryan are great new characters.

This is about a woman who owns a yarn shop on Seattle's Blossom Street. People come there to quit something and start a new phase of their lives. A great story of friendship.
It's a fun book to listen to while on a girls roadtrip.

I thourgly enjoyed the book. I hope Macomber continues to write about the lives of the Blosssom street residents. It is humourous at times, sad and a slice of ife. A good read.

I don't normally read (or listen to) books like this, but I was desperate for a book on CD for my car so I borrowed this from my mom. Though my expectations were quite low for a chick lit novel, "Summer on Blossom Street" didn't even meet those.

Why Ms. Macomber is a wildly successful author is, to me, a mystery. Cartoonish characters drawn with the broadest of strokes, computer-generated plot lines. The instant a character is introduced into the story, you know exactly what's going to happen to them, it's that contrived. Yuck.

Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings -- and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something -- or someone! -- and start a new phase of their lives. First to join is Phoebe Rylander. She recently ended her engagement to a man who doesn't know the meaning of faithful, and she's trying to get over him. Then there's Alix Turner. She and her husband, Jordan, want a baby, which means she has to quit smoking. And Bryan Hutchinson joins the class because he needs a way to deal with the stress of running his family's business -- not to mention the lawsuit brought against him by an unscrupulous lawyer. Life can be as complicated as a knitting pattern. Just ask Anne Marie Roche. She and her adopted daughter, Ellen, finally have the happiness they wished for. And then a stranger comes to her bookstore asking questions. Or ask Lydia herself. Not only is she coping with her increasingly frail mother, but she and Brad have unexpectedly become foster parents to an angry, defiant twelve-year-old. But as Lydia already knows, when life gets difficult and your stitches are snarled, your friends can always help! Great gift! This is a great summer story; one of my favorite Debbie Macomber reads. The story and characters were so good that I could not put the book down until I finished it.

The next installment in the Blossom Street series by Debbie Macomber is as good as the rest of the books in the series. Macomber weaves such great stories and characters that you feel like they are all you friends and you laugh and cry along with them. As always, she reunites us with familiar characters and introduces new characters to us. All is all, a very good read and in parts a real tear jerker. Bravo, Debbie Macomber, keep up the great writing.

Spoilers included:

Not as well written as some of the other Blossom Street novels in my opinion. It definitely isn't a stand alone book and in many ways have unfinished stories.

The best story so far was Lydia's and Cassey. It was interesting and was very well rounded. Phoebe and Hutch's story was very sweet.

Alix's story was everywhere and almost felt unnecessary. I think Macomber was having a hard time trying to express Alix's insecurities with motherhood and her bouts of nicotine addiction. She ended up doing a lot of telling and not showing the readers. I did love the scenes Alix had with Casey though.

I read Anne Marie and Tim's story first. In fact that was the first thing I read by Macomber. Just be aware that things are left unresolved in this book with Anne Marie. In the sequel Anne was really angry with Tim for not telling her he was engaged. After reading what happened here I can't seem to understand why Anne Marie was so hurt. In fact that story doesn't really pick up where this one left off. Here, Anne Marie was understanding of the situation and even was considering dating Tim. In the sequel, she was crazy mad and it made it seemed like Tim purposely let her on, slept with her, or at least made moves on her before telling her he was engaged. So if you continue to read Macomber, realize that there will be some inconsistency with this story.

Overall, the book was okay. I enjoyed the first and "Back on Blossom Street" better.
