There's a new shop on Seattle's Blossom Streeta flower store called Susannah's Garden, right next door to A Good Yarn. Susannah Nelson, the owner, has just hired a young widow named Colette Blake. A couple of months earlier, Colette had abruptly quit her previous jobafter a brief affair with her boss. To her dismay, he's suddenly begun placing weekly orders for flower arrangements!
Susannah and Colette both join Lydia Goetz's new knitting class. Lydia's previous classes have forged lasting friendships, and this one is no exception. But Lydia and her sister, Margaret, have worries of their own. Margaret's daughter, Julia, has been the victim of a random carjacking, and the entire family is thrown into emotional chaos.
Then there's Alix Townsend. Her wedding to Jordan Turner is only months awaybut she's not sure she can go through with it. Her love for Jordan isn't in question; what she can't handle is the whole wedding extravaganza engineered by her mentor, Jacqueline, with the enthusiastic cooperation of her future mother-in-law. A reception at the country club and hundreds of guests she's never even metit's just not Alix.
Like everyone else in Lydia's knitting class, Alix knows there's a solution to every problem and that another woman can usually help you find it!
