GIVEAWAY! Debbie Macomber's New Book, STARTING NOW

Debbie Macomber has been writing about women, relationships, love, romance and families for 30 years. She is a #1 New York Times bestselling author best known for her ability to create compelling characters and bring their stories to life in her books. Drawing on her own experiences and observations, Debbie writes heartwarming tales about small-town life, home and family, enduring friendships and women who knit. Every book features the delightful sense of humor for which readers around the world clamor. Not bad for a woman who is dyslexic and didn't learn to read until she was in the fifth grade. 

She has numerous series, some interrelated, some not. One of her current series is "Blossom Street" and the next book in that series, "Starting Now" will be out in April. Thanks to the publisher, I have a print galley to giveaway to one commenter, US only.


 Blurb ~ 
#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber returns to Seattle’s beloved Blossom Street in this heartfelt tale of friendship, renewal, and discovering what’s truly important in life.
 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.
Warmly told and richly textured, Starting Now is filled with the promise of new beginnings and the unending delights of companionship and love.

  2. I don't think I would change anything because that would change who I am now. It would also affect who I have in my family.

  3. I don't think I would change anything since I do like my life but if I had the power to have loved ones not leave us and remain with us just a little longer I would do so.

  7. I would learn where my backbone earlier on in life and stop caring what people thought or if I hurt their feelings. I would have lived my life instead of the picture perfect life that my parents wanted me to make-believe.

  15. If I could start over, I would listen to my elders so when I do my genealogy, I would have more information and an idea of what happened in their lives.
