Setting: Seattle, Washington

First Sentence:

“I love A Good Yarn, and I’m grateful for every minute I spend in my shop on Blossom Street.”

Cover Blurb: There's a new shop on Seattle's Blossom Street - a flower store called Susannah's Garden, right next door to A Good Yarn. Susannah Nelson, the owner, has just hired a young widow named Colette Blake. A couple of months earlier, Colette had abruptly quit her previous job - after a brief affair with her boss. To her dismay, he's suddenly begun placing weekly orders for flower arrangements!

Susannah and Colette both join Lydia Goetz's new knitting class. Lydia's previous classes have forged lasting friendships, and this one is no exception. But Lydia and her sister, Margaret, have worries of their own. Margaret's daughter, Julia, has been the victim of a random carjacking, and the entire family is thrown into emotional chaos.

Then there's Alix Townsend. Her wedding to Jordan Turner is only months away - but she's not sure she can go through with it. Her love for Jordan isn't in question; what she can't handle is the whole wedding extravaganza engineered by her mentor, Jacqueline, with the enthusiastic cooperation of her future mother-in-law. A reception at the country club and hundreds of guests she's never even met - it's just not Alix.

Like everyone else in Lydia's knitting class, Alix knows there's a solution to every problem . . . and that another woman can usually help you find it!

Reason for Reading: 3rd book in the Knitting series

Random Thoughts: I’ve really enjoyed Macomber's knitting series. This is the last book for now, but I’d read more in this series if other books come out in the future. This one made me what to pick up knitting needles and I don’t even knit! I did look up a local yarn store, though. I could be in trouble…
