Blossom Street Brides: A Blossom Street Novel   by  Debbie Macomber 
Lauren 's younger sister is pregnant and she is over 30 and feeling every year of her devastation. Todd is just not ready financially for their engagement...
Lauren is secure in her job at the high-end jewelry store and learns of the owners daughter who is also pregnant.
Bethany and Max have a second chance at love and her daughter is pregnant also. Problem is Grant the ex husband is trying to break them up. Max surprises her along with Rooster who hits it off with Lauren who's broken up with Todd.
So love the idea of the knitting baskets around town where you sit and knit and when the scarf is done bring it to the yarn store and they'll drop it off at a shelter.
With a new generation some from the past make an appearance in this book.   Love the travels.
Easy to keep those related bunched together as they all deal with different issues. Was a bit disappointed that the baby blanket pattern was not included as I do knit for charity.
I received this book from Edelweiss by  Random House in exchange for my honest review.

The Reading Circle by Ashton Lee
Read the first book in this series and glad to see it continue. Such great ideas for keeping the library open and the community using it for many things.
Although it should help prove to the town council of its usefulness there is the old boy network at play still that thinks the money should go towards a park with their name on it.
Like how Maura Beth interacts with such a group of people with not much in common. Love hearing the latest on the townsfolk that were also in the first book.
So many events taking place and will they outwit Councilman Sparks once and for all...Love the ending and especially all the bonus recipes!
I received this book from Kenssington Books Co.
