Blossom Street Brides (Blossom Street #10) by Debbie Macomber

#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber has won the hearts of millions of readers with her moving and inspiring stories. Now wedding bells are ringing in the tight-knit community that gathers around A Good Yarn, a store in a pretty Seattle neighborhood. Knitters come to the store to buy yarn and patterns but somehow they leave richer in friendship and love.
Lauren Elliott has waited years for her long-term boyfriend, Todd, to propose, yet he seems more focused on his career than their relationship. When Lauren learns that her younger sister is pregnant before she herself even has an engagement ring, she feels overjoyed yet disheartened. Knowing she can’t put her future on hold, Lauren prepares to make a bold choice—one that leads her to a man she never dreamed she’d meet.
Newly married to her second husband, Max, Bethanne Scranton is blissfully in love. But with Max’s job in California and Bethanne’s in Seattle, their long-distance marriage is becoming difficult to maintain. To complicate matters, Bethanne’s cunning ex will do anything to win her back.
Lydia Goetz, too, is wonderfully happy with her husband, Brad, though lately she worries about the future of A Good Yarn. As she considers how to bring in business, she discovers that someone has beaten her to the punch. Baskets of yarn are mysteriously popping up all over town, with instructions to knit a scarf for charity and bring it into Lydia’s store. Never before has her shop received so much attention, but who hatched this brilliant plan?
As three women’s lives intersect in unexpected ways, Lydia, Lauren, and Bethanne realize that love heals every heart, and the best surprises still lay ahead.

Overall rating: 3 Rockin’ Stars!

Everywhere Lauren looks she sees family and friends married and expecting.  What does she have, a relationship that is going nowhere!  After three years of promises, enough is enough. It was time for both of them to move on without each other.

She was finished waiting for Todd to give her an engagement ring.  A year earlier she’d had the DTR-Defining the Relationship talk with Todd and he’d assured her that marriage was definitely part of their future.

Lauren breaks off her relationship with Todd.  She decides to make a list of what she should look for in a man.  It is not important that a man be handsome, but have character and be a man of integrity and honor. A good down-to-earth kind of guy is what she wants. Enters motorcycle riding, leather vest wearing, long haired, and bare arms Rooster Wayne.  Yes, a man that looks like he is part of a motorcycle gang. A man that Lauren feels an instant attraction to regardless of their differences.

His dark glasses made it impossible to see if he was watching her with the same intensity that she did him. 

Rooster is a complete opposite of any man she had ever dated.  Not her type at all!   But didn't she just tell herself to think outside the box and see the man inside and not judge him by his appearance.

Will a whirlwind romance end in true love or disaster?
