DescriptionFor 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 teenaged 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.

Starting Now is the ninth full length novel in the popular Blossom Street series by American author, Debbie Macomber. The main players are Libby Morgan, an attorney dealing with estate planning who finds herself unexpectedly unemployed, and the brusque, unpleasant Dr Phillip Stone, aka Heart of Stone, a physician working with newborns and premature births. Libby's enforced leisure time leads her to A Good Yarn, where she makes friends with Lydia, Casey and Casey's friend, a troubled teen named Ava. Other activities bring her into Dr Stone's sphere. After some radical life changes, Libby thinks she has discovered what is important in her life. But another unanticipated event finds Libby trading her physical treadmill at the gym for a metaphorical treadmill at work. There is a background romance as one of Libby's friends, attorney Robin Hamlin starts a relationship with widower, Judge Roy Bollinger. Macomber touches on quite a few topical issues: work/life balance, tattoos, teen pregnancy and adoption. Fans of the Blossom Street series will be pleased to encounter cameos or mentions of characters from at least four previous books. Discounting the naiveté that attorney Libby shows about adoption, and the inordinate amount of free time physician Dr Stone seems to be able to conjure for coffees and lunches and afternoons of sailing, this is still a sweet romance. by Marianne Vincent
