Summer on Blossom Street is the current episode in the soap opera-like Blossom Street series by Debbie Macomber. It picks up where Twenty Wishes ends. Lydia Goetz is holding a "Knit to Quit" series of lessons at her yarn shop. Her students are Alix, who has been in earlier books; Phoebe who is trying to quit loving her ex-fiancée; and "Hutch", a hard-charging businessman who has been told by his doctor to take up knitting to lower his stress level. We watch these characters as they deal with the issues in their lives. We also meet Lydia's new foster child and spend time with Anne Marie and Ellen from Twenty Wishes.
If you've never read one of Macomber's Blossom Street/Yarn Shop books, you will feel you are missing some back story, but I think you could enjoy this book. However, like a soap opera this book leaves threads hanging to draw us to read the next installment. In short, if you like Macomber's sagas, you'll like this addition; if you haven't read her other books; start with A Good Yarn (Blossom Street) and work your way through the series.
