One of her best loved series is the series, which takes place (aptly) in a yarn shop on Blossom Street in Seattle. Like most of Debbie's books, the Blossom Street series are refreshingly lighter-fare. Her tales warm the soul without saturating the reader in moral lessons or sticky sweetness.
Her latest release is Summer on Blossom Street, which takes readers back to the yarn shop where a Knit to Quit class is being held. Quit what, you ask? Well, whatever you feel you need to cut out of your life. Summer on Blossom Street follows each member of the class and their refreshingly honest stories.
Debbie's rise to a NYT best-selling author is touching. Despite battling dylexia and raising four (four!) children, Debbie was so drawn to telling her stories that she wrote her earlier books sitting at the kitchen table using a typewriter that she rented. It took her five years to find a publisher, proving that good stories aren't always immediately recognized by the publishing industry. Her success story is inspiring and so much of this shines through in her books.
Debbie's Cedar Cove, Washington
Our favorites, though, are the Cedar Cove series, which are set in the small town of Port Orchard, Washington (Debbie renames the town Cedar Cove), a short ten-minute drive from A Reader's Respite's abode. Each book is titled with a different street address and each book is a stand-alone story of the family living at that address.
If you ever find yourself looking for a lighter, summer-y read sans graphic sex, language, violence, or obsessive fashion/shopping, Macomber's books are for you.
We suggest a visit to Debbie's website if you've never been before. Not only does she keep a plethora of information about her books, but there are also fun recipes, her own Knitter's Club with great patterns, and Debbie's blog which is always a fun read.
