This is teh second-to-last book in the series, book 11. I have come to expect the unexpected in this series but this book was horrible. The constant disrespect and whining from Jolene and Bruce just killed the entire vibe of the book. If it wasn't for the other charachters storyline I would have burned this book!!! Hopefully the final book can erase this book from memory.
1105 Yakama Street is the home of Bruce and Rachel Peyton and 13-year-old Jolene, except Rachel has left because she's pregnant and Jolene's jealousy is too stressful. Olivia's and Will's mother left something on a lit burner----the kitchen is a total loss. The Bellamys have separated because of Leonard's treatment of Linc, daughter Lori's new husband. All is well by the end of the book; such wonderful reading getting there!
This is my favorite series & I'm sad to learn the series is ending after the next book, 1225 Christmas Tree Lane. I've really enjoyed following Grace, Olivia & the many other characters over the last 10 years. Even the annoying characters added to the fantastic plots Debbie Macomber concocted. It's just like my favorite soap opera is ending. I can't wait to read the final chapter & I hope Debbie plans another exciting new series to follow this one.
As always Debbie Macomber does a great job and the Cedar Cove Series is wonderful and makes you eager for the next "episode".
Delightful series. The characters are engaging and I enjoy the writing very much.
