First to join is Phoebe Rylander. She recently ended her engagement to a man who doesn't know the meaning of faithful, and she's trying to get over him. Then there's Alix Turner. She and her husband, Jordan, want a baby, which means she has to quit smoking. And Bryan Hutchinson joins the class because he needs a way to deal with the stress of running his family's business - not to mention the lawsuit brought against him by an unscrupulous lawyer.
Life can be as complicated as a knitting pattern. Just ask Anne Marie Roche. She and her adopted daughter, Ellen, finally have the happiness they wished for. And then a stranger comes to her bookstore asking questions.
Or ask Lydia herself. Not only is she coping with her increasingly frail mother, but she and Brad have unexpectedly become foster parents to an angry, defiant 12-year-old.
But as Lydia already knows, when life gets difficult and your stitches are snarled, your friends can always help!

I love audio books. I am an avid reader/listener in my car and sometimes I just sit in a park or pool and let the escape begin with Audible
I didnt want to miss out on the story but the narrator was horrible. She should stick to her radio show which she is excellent at. I cant tell you the number of times I turned off the book to take a break from the narrator.
Her voice is too harsh and there was no distintion between the story and the speaking parts.
She just read the book to me.
Keep this series going.
I think the story is about the same as the others but the narrator has such a screechy voice, mispronounces words and has been reading one line in the book twice. I have not encountered this with the other Macomber books and I've listened to a lot. It is hard to listen bc of the narrator.
I love Delilah on the radio, but she just doesn't do it as an audiobook narrator. She is too fast, too loud, and no distinction between characters.
Any of the prior narrators.
I don't care for Delilah reading this. In her radio program she always has a smile in her voice, which is fine, she's a motivational speaker. This book didn't require that all the time. I was frustrated with her pleasant upbeat tone throughout the book. The story is really a good one if you can get past the narrator.
The Blossom Street books are syrupy and predictable. The reader knows within the first couple of pages how everything will end. No surprises. But I enjoy my time on Blossom Street. I enjoy the simple stories of everyday life. I read a lot of suspense and thrillers. I spend a lot of time in the company of serial killers (in books). So every now and then, a syrupy, predictable book is perfect. I look forward to my next visit to Blossom Street.
I nearly didn't finish the book and wish I had listened to a sample before downloading. The reader used way too much enthusiasm for my taste and several times I wondered if I was listening to a children's book. It really spoiled the story for me.
While the story was cute, the narration detracted from it so much as to make listening to this book almost unbearable. Each and every character sounded exactly the same which made following dialogue problematic. Her enunciation was pretty lousy, as well. This was just painful to listen to.
The story is nice, but the narrator is a big distraction. She does not read with appropriate inflection and she uses the same voice throughout - for every character. I recommend a different version of this book.
