"Cedar Cove -- people love it and sometimes they leave it, but they never forget it!"

This is the 1st book in the Cedar Cove Seris, and I know I will be reading the rest...The writing draws you in and has you wrapped up in the characters from the first chapter. It is uplifting to watch these characters develope and grow in a way that has you cheering then on! Cedar Cove is a town where everyone wants to be.

When I first started reading Macomber's books, I remembered reading a review that said she was clearly a writer out of ideas. I've read most of her Blossom Street series and decided to start reading Cedar Cove and now I totally understand what that reviewer was talking about.

"16 Lighthouse Road" was almost the same book as "A Turn in the Road" in regards to the characters. They are basically the same people, almost the same plotlines, with just a difference in names. There might be some minor changes in back story but essentially it is the same. I think one of the later books in the Cedar Cove series Olivia (which is the same person as Bethanne in Blossom Street) actually have to face the decision of her husband wanting her back after his second marriage fail. That's basically "A Turn In the Road for You." As a reader I find this practice really insulting. If you don't have any new ideas or characters, don't write. It makes me think that this is all about Macomber making a buck. In a way it's unfair that I'm writing this review here since this book and series came out before the Blossom Street series I think. But since I am reading Cedar Cove second, I can do nothing but put this review here.

As for the book itself, I was hesitant to read this one because of the premise. I really have a hard time with people trying to make decisions for others thinking they are too dumb to make choices for themselves. Here Olivia, due to what happened in her marriage and because she thought she knew better, decided to deny a couple their divorce. But I thought I would give this book a try anyway.

It was really hard for me to read at first because I didn't like any of the characters. Maybe if Macomber really tried to develop their backstory a little more instead of just repeating the same information over and over again. I have no understanding of why Justine had so much relationship issues other than that her twin drowned. When reading this, I had to take some emotional and mental assumptions in order to bridge the gap of the characters' behaviors. Sometimes that left me feeling a little cheated.

Cecilia and Ian in my opinion should have stayed divorced because all they did when they were physically together were fight and blame. It is easier to get along on paper when you get edit things out before you blab them. Reading their stories was frustrating and I wanted to skip their them all together. It was the typical miscommunication and assumptions between two characters that makes me hate romance novels. It was childish and I could have cared less what happened to both of them.

I think out of all the characters I liked Grace's story the most. I admired her strength and her character kept me reading. I loved the scene when she finally snaps.

Jack and Olivia story was pretty good as well. I am not a prude at all but I just feel like if you are going to be kissing someone you are definitely more than friends. It was a good story and by the end I think I liked Olivia a little more.

Charlotte's story was intriguing. When I first open the book, she was the only one I liked. It's not a romance story but I thought it was very touching. Macomber usually has one story that is slightly idyllic in her books where everything works out a little too smoothly. This one was it.

Overall, this book would have received a higher rating from me if I had read it before the Blossom Street series. The book was entertaining and easy to read. But I have come to realize that I would never spend money or credits on a Macomber novel.

Perennial favorite Debbie Macomber does what she does best in 16 Lighthouse Road, introducing fans to the scenic Pacific Northwest town of Cedar Cove, Washington, and its panoply of characters, including family court judge Olivia Lockhart who makes news when she denies the divorce petition of Cecilia and Ian Randall. Decreeing that the young couple had not tried hard enough to make their relationship work following the tragic death of their newborn daughter, Olivia's decision brings her to the attention of recent Cedar Cove arrival, newspaper editor Jack Griffin. And Jack's attentions are not entirely unwelcome for the long-divorced Olivia. In addition to her continued involvement in Cecilia and Ian's ongoing negotiations, Olivia's life is further complicated by her mother, Charlotte, her daughter, Justine, and her best friend, Grace, as they struggle with the difficult situations life tosses their way. Charlotte becomes enmeshed in trying to solve a mystery left to her by a mute stroke victim she befriends just before he dies. Justine has found the perfect man for her, one who shares her ambitions and thoughts on relationships, but why does she keep thinking about the boy she knew in high school who has grown into quite a man? And Grace's husband, Dan, has disappeared--again--and Grace has no idea where he is and when or if he'll be back. The multiple story lines and numerous relationships make reading at times challenging, but Macomber fans, old and new, will stand up and cheer as the prolific author lodges her protest against the disposable personal relationships all too common today.

As a family court judge, Olivia Lockhart has dealt with numerous divorce suits but none as peculiar as Cecilia and Ian Randall's. Before the young couple was married the year before, Cecilia and Ian signed a prenuptial agreement stating their marriage would last a lifetime, but now, after the tragic death of their infant daughter, the two wish to rescind the agreement. Sensing that Cecilia and Ian are still in love, Olivia lets her heart guide her decision, and denies their petition. Olivia's decision makes headlines in The Cedar Cove Chronicle and earns her the admiration of the paper's editor, Jack Griffin, a newcomer to the small Washington town. While Jack courts Olivia, and Ian and Cecilia try to repair their marriage, Olivia's daughter is forced to decide whether she should marry a man whom she doesn't love; Olivia's best friend grows frantic over the disappearance of her husband; and Olivia's mother befriends a stroke patient who harbors a secret he would share if he could speak.

I have never been one for romance novel but I had heard so many people say good things about Debbie Macomber that I finally decided to try one of her books. I am so glad that I did. I was totally hooked within the first few pages. Like someone else said...their not smutty. Great story and I can't wait to read the next one. I will definitely be reading a whole lot more of Macomber's books.

Dear Reader,
You don't know me yet, but in a few hours that's going to change. You see, I'm inviting you to my home and my town of Cedar Cove because I want you to meet my family, friends and neighbors. Come and hear their stories-maybe even their secrets!

I have to admit that my own secrets are pretty open, My marriage failed some years ago, and I have a rather...difficult relationship with my daughter, Justine. Then there's my mother, Charlotte, who has plenty of opinions and is always willing to share them.

Here's an example: I'm a family court judge and she likes to drop in on my courtroom. Recently I was hearing a divorce petition. In Charlotte's view, young Cecilia and Ian Randall hadn't tried hard enough to make their marriage work-and I agreed. So I rendered my judgement: Divorce Denied.

Well, you wouldn't believe the reaction! Thanks to an article by Jack Griffin, the editor of our local paper ( and a man I wouldn't mind seeing more of!), everyone's talking.

Cedar Cove-people love it and sometimes they leave it, but they never forget it!

See you soon.....
Olivia

This is the first Debbie Macomber book I've read. I have to say it did not take me long to become interested with the Cedar Cove characters. The book follows the everyday life of several characters and I got a little frustrated when it skipped to another sub story when I was getting interested in what was going on with my feuding couple. But I'm not really complaining (too much) because I'm looking for more books in the series. A good comfortable read.

Okay, I'll confess, I love most of the sappy movies on Hallmark Channel. So when I heard they had created a series based on Debbie Macomber's series "Cedar Cove" starring Andie MacDowell, I just had to read the books. It took me no time to get "into" the book. The characters and their struggles all seem so real. Her writing so simple and believable. I'm looking forward to the next installment!

You shouldn't miss this series by Debbie Macomber. This is the first book. It's set in Cedar Cove, Washington. This is the first book, all about Olivia, a judge, and her mother, Charlotte and daughter Justine. I've read several of the series, and it's great fun following the same characters of a small town through the changes in their lives. I loved it!

Perennial favorite Debbie Macomber does what she does best in 16 Lighthouse Road, introducing fans to the scenic Pacific Northwest town of Cedar Cove, Washington, and its panoply of characters, including family court judge Olivia Lockhart who makes news when she denies the divorce petition of Cecilia and Ian Randall. Decreeing that the young couple had not tried hard enough to make their relationship work following the tragic death of their newborn daughter, Olivia's decision brings her to the attention of recent Cedar Cove arrival, newspaper editor Jack Griffin. And Jack's attentions are not entirely unwelcome for the long-divorced Olivia. In addition to her continued involvement in Cecilia and Ian's ongoing negotiations, Olivia's life is further complicated by her mother, Charlotte, her daughter, Justine, and her best friend, Grace, as they struggle with the difficult situations life tosses their way. Charlotte becomes enmeshed in trying to solve a mystery left to her by a mute stroke victim she befriends just before he dies. Justine has found the perfect man for her, one who shares her ambitions and thoughts on relationships, but why does she keep thinking about the boy she knew in high school who has grown into quite a man? And Grace's husband, Dan, has disappeared--again--and Grace has no idea where he is and when or if he'll be back. The multiple story lines and numerous relationships make reading at times challenging, but Macomber fans, old and new, will stand up and cheer as the prolific author lodges her protest against the disposable personal relationships all too common today.

I loved this book. I loved all the stories that were intertwined together. I love the way she developed the characters and their storylines. It actually made me want to live in this fictional town of Cedar Cove ( Port Orchard, WA). I have developed a real fondness for Debbie Macomber. I have started reading book #2. Can't wait to finish so I can start #3.

I've watched this TV series on Hallmark since the first episode so I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the book. If anything, I enjoyed the book more than the series. I've never read Debbie Macomber before but I thoroughly enjoy her writing style. This was a perfect summer read for me and I've requested all the other books in this series.

Another excellent read from Macomber. I have read a few of her other books and was not certain I would enjoy a series. But Cedar Cove has won my heart. I started with this book yesterday and couldn't/wouldn't put it down. I am now into book 2. The characters are amazingly real to me and I feel as though I've just returned home to my family and friends. I have been able to associate myself with many of the situations presented. Anyone who is looking to meet new friends should definitely pick up this book/series.

A great Debbie Macomber read! The first of the Cedar Cover series.

Cedar Cove -- people love it and sometimes leave it, but they never forget it!

Judge Olivia Lockhart is the main character in this book. She makes pretty unusual judgments in her court.

Jack Griffin, editor of the paper comes into her life.

Her mother Charlotte has plenty of opinions and is always ready to share them.

See how Cecilia and Ian Randall take Judge Lockharts decision.

Olivia Lockhart

16 Lighthouse Road

Cedar Cove, Washington

Dear Reader,

You don't know me yet, but in a few hours that's going to change. You see, I'm inviting you to my home and my town of Cedar Cove because I want you to meet my family, friends, and neighbors. Come and hear their stories -- maybe even their secrets!

I have to admit that my own secrets are pretty open. My marriage failed some years ago, and I have a rather . . . difficult relationship with my daughter, Justine. Then there's my mother, Charlotte, who has plenty of opinions and is always willing to share them.

Here's an example: I'm a family court judge and she likes to drop in on my courtroom. Recently I was hearing a divorce petition. In Charlotte's view, young Cecilia and Ian Randall hadn't tried hard enough to make their marriage work -- and I agreed. So I rendered my judgement: Divorce Denied.

Well, you wouldn't believe the reaction! Thanks to an article by Jack Griffin, the editor of our local paper (and a man I wouldn't mind seeing more of!), everyone's talking.

Cedar Cove -- people love it and sometimes they leave it, but they never forget it!

See you soon . . .

Olivia
