It’s the time of year when fans of Debbie Macomber are haunting their bookstores on a regular basis eagerly anticipating her newest release, Summer on Blossom Street.

Blossom Street is bustling with activity. It takes a writer with a unique skill to be able to write a long running series, and keep readers not only entertained but clamoring for more. As readers return to Blossom Street they will be thrilled to know that Lydia and her husband have been approved to follow Anne Marie Roche’s footsteps and adopt.

Speaking of Anne Marie we get to catch up with her after her once in a lifetime trip to Paris. Now, she and Ellen can settle into being a family or can they? While they were gone someone has been looking for Anne Marie. How will the handsome Tim upset the life that Anne Marie and Ellen are looking forward to enjoying?

Alix Turner and her husband Jordan are thinking of starting a family, but is Alix ready? When the Goetz’s agree to be an emergency foster family for a preteen girl, Alix is the one they turn to for some help in getting Casey acclimated to life in a secure and loving family. The bond that Casey and Alix form while fragile does give Alix the confidence she needs to move forward with her plans for her own family.

Now to the newcomers, Phoebe Rhylander who is trying to fall out of love with a cheating fiancé, and Bryan Hutchinson a workaholic who is trying to slow down, and figure out how he ended up in the life he’s currently got. The attraction between Phoebe and Bryan is instant, but can they set aside their worries to see if the fire smoldering between them can burst into a full inferno?

I strongly suggest that when you settle in to read Summer On Blossom Street you make sure you have your favorite drink, and snack handy, have all your chores done, so you can do nothing for the next several hours but be swept away by the magic of Ms. Macomber’s writing.
