Started about halfway into the series, and am now starting with the first book to eventually meet in the middle. Even though I know some of the developments, such as what people are married and have children, etc., I am still enjoying starting at the beginning. I have become very attached to the characters and the geographic region they all love. I feel that the author is able to bring new life and a brand new story to each book--not boring or repetitive.
Boycotted her last few novels as I was disappointed in the same old, same old. Still no resolve with her love interests or job, etc. However, I found I could not live without Lula and Grandma. Their dialogue is so hilarious that I decided to overlook the lame existence of the rest of it. Now I am addicted again and await No. 23.
A little too long. Cute idea but isn't enough to keep a novel going. Have read other Rainbow Rowell and liked the stories and characters better in those novels.
Good character development. Story is read by the two main characters, switching over every other chapter. You will find yourself rooting for these women and girls. Quilting is one of the main themes in this story, so if you are a quilter you may identify with this story even more.
Cute story about women in a scrapbooking club. There are some good relationships as we are introduced to the different characters and see how their lives become enmeshed. I think I am sufficiently motivated now to get my five scrapbooks started and completed. My gathering and sorting is done, but time to compile and give as gifts to my loved ones.
Enjoy this series, on the third book right now. The favorite part of the book for me is the gardening thread running through it. Like the strong character of the female boss and matriarch. Not real deep reading, but wanted to keep listening until the conclusion.
Read other Blossom Street Books, so wanted to see what this one had to offer. These books are a nice little get away from reality if you aren't looking for anything deep.
Enjoyed the four different main characters. Each one is facing their own set of problems and you will be absorbed in the journey. Lots of words of wisdom, and good insight into helping these girls deal with their personal problems. Felt like each of these girls were a case history right out of a therapist's patient files. Would continue reading about their lives if Robyn Carr does a series.
This book had me with the cover. Knew there would be humor mixed in with some spiritual reflection. The right doses of each of these makes it a success. The author is such a real guy that admits he is skeptical about spiritual things. You will probably see yourself in him and feel like you are taking the journey too. It is very enjoyable and will recommend to others.
This teetered between a 4 and 5 star book, as it wasn't intense or electrifying as what I would deem as criteria for a 5. However; it was a sentimental, heartfelt story for us dog lovers. Shorter story, not a run-on story with a lot of filler, The author did a wonderful job with the voices. If you like dogs and Christmas and want a nice break from your traditional genre, it was very nice. It was the $1.95 Xmas special price too, so can't go wrong with that. Thank you audible for offering this to us listeners.
It was easy listening, somewhat more for younger readers such as 20's/30's. Basically a beach read but with the holiday theme. I don't regret using the credit as it passed the time quite nicely as I worked on Holiday decorating, baking, etc.
