Starting Now by Debbie Macomber
Macomber is one of my comfort authors. I love her writing style and her character development. Her Blossom Street series is one of my favorite series, and this latest installment did not disappoint. In this book, Libby Morgan is a workaholic attorney who is unexpectedly laid off from her firm. She finds herself in Lydia's yarn shop and begins to knit hats for preemie babies. This leads her to volunteering at the hospital, which leads her to handsome doctor, Phillip Stone. Throughout this book, Libby rediscovers herself and what things she wants in her life.
Starting Now introduces an interesting new character to the Blossom Street canvas in Libby. It was nice to see the return of character such as Lydia, Brad, Casey and Margaret. Reading this book was like returning to your hometown--known and accepted. Macomber's writing style is great for developing romantic plots while including an interesting twist to make this more than "just" a romance novel. I loved it; I read it in a day.
