STARTING NOW by Debbie Macmber
For years Libby Morgan dreamed only of making partner in her competitive, high-pressure law firm. She sacrificed everything for her career—her friends, her marriage, her chance at creating a family. When her boss calls Libby into his office, she assumes it will finally be good news, but nothing can prepare her for the shocking reality: She’s been let go and must rebuild her entire life . . . starting now.
With no job prospects in sight, Libby reaches out to old friends and spends her afternoons at A Good Yarn, the local knitting store. There she forms a close bond with Lydia, the sweet-natured shop owner; Lydia’s spirited teenage daughter, Casey; and Casey’s best friend, Ava, a shy yet troubled girl who will shape Libby’s future in surprising and profound ways.
As A Good Yarn becomes a second home—and the women a new kind of family—Libby relishes the different person she’s become. She even finds time for romance with a charming and handsome doctor who seems to be her perfect match. But just as everything is coming together, Libby must make a choice that could forever change the life she holds so dear.
I've really enjoyed the Blossom Street novels, this one is no exception. Libby is an attorney expecting to be offered partnership when she is called into her bosses office. What she gets is the opposite, he has to let her go. Like many others that have lost their jobs due to the economy she is devastated at the loss of the job she loves. It takes effort but Libby is finally able to enjoy life. You'll find a little romance, humor, healing of relationships and teen pregnancy.
A fun, quick read with loveable new characters as well as the ones we've become familiar with in this series. 4.5 out of 5 stars!
I received an ecopy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
