A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber

Please join me at A Good Yarn! It's a wonderful little knitting shop in downtown Seattle -- a place of welcome and warmth, of friends old and new. Come and discover how knitting a pair of socks can change your life!
Debbie Macomber

Lydia Hoffman owns the shop on Blossom Street. In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived -- and so has Lydia. A lot of that is due to Brad Goetz. But when Brad's ex-wife reappears, Lydia is suddenly afraid to trust her newfound happiness.

Three women join Lydia's newest class. Elisa Beaumont, retired and bitterly divorced, learns that her onetime husband is reentering her life. Bethanne Hamlin is facing the fallout from a much more recent divorce. And Courtney Pulanski is a depressed and overweight teenager, whose grandmother's idea of helping her is to drag her to seniors' swim sessions -- and to the knitting class at A Good Yarn.

This a sequel to The Shop on Blossom Street. We meet three new characters, plus we revisit Lydia.
Lydia's boyfriend starts talking to his ex wife. Turns out Brad's son bragged he wanted Lydia as his mom and the ex wife got jealous. Lydia tells Brad she's not playing games and attempts to move on with her life.
Courtney has moved in with her grandma while her father is working in Brazil. Kind of sucks for Courtney since she has to spend her senior year in a new school. Her grandma signs her up for knitting classes so Courtney will meet people.
Bethanne is just getting over her divorce. She's been a stay at home mom so finding a job is really difficult for her. She finds her enjoyment for planning parties pays off.
Elise was divorced a long time ago but when her ex walks back into her life, she realizes she never stopped loving him.
Every one has a happily ever after and all works out in the end. I enjoyed the book. I thought I was in a reading slump but as soon as I picked up this book, I wanted to keep reading. It is one of those sugary sweet books but it was perfect for getting me out of a slump.
Grade: B+
