November 7th - WOW

hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Off topic, I am so glad the election is more ads
and no more annoying phone calls. Now moving on-
this week I am looking forward to a new Debbie Macomber
Blossom Street Book.  I love this series and so happy that Debbie's
books have gotten my 82 year old Mom back into reading again.
I started her on Debbies books last year and she is pretty much
through her back list and loving everyone of her series.
This latest installment comes out in April which seems very far away right now.

Starting Now: A Blossom Street Novel

Overview taken from

#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber returns to Seattle’s beloved Blossom Street in this heartfelt tale of friendship, renewal, and discovering what’s truly important in life.
For years Libby Morgan dreamed only of making partner in her competitive, high-pressure law firm. She sacrificed everything for her career—her friends, her marriage, her chance at creating a family. When her boss calls Libby into his office, she assumes it will finally be good news, but nothing can prepare her for the shocking reality: She’s been let go and must rebuild her entire life . . . starting now.
With no job prospects in sight, Libby reaches out to old friends and spends her afternoons at A Good Yarn, the local knitting store. There she forms a close bond with Lydia, the sweet-natured shop owner; Lydia’s spirited teenage daughter, Casey; and Casey’s best friend, Ava, a shy yet troubled girl who will shape Libby’s future in surprising and profound ways.
As A Good Yarn becomes a second home—and the women a new kind of family—Libby relishes the different person she’s become. She even finds time for romance with a charming and handsome doctor who seems to be her perfect match. But just as everything is coming together, Libby must make a choice that could forever change the life she holds so dear.
Warmly told and richly textured, Starting Now is filled with the promise of new beginnings and the unending delights of companionship and love.

This book is on my list. Not for me but, for my best friend. Her birthday is next month and I want to get it for her.

I've not read anything by this author, but I love that she's gotten your Mom back into reading. Suzanne Collins got my Dad back into reading. I love the power of books.

I am very glad the election is over as well. Now I can unhide friends on FB and I don't have 3 political calls a day. And I wasn't even in a swing state! Debbie Macomber is awesome. I haven't read her for years, but this one looks good.
