I was really looking forward to this book because Grace is one of my favorite characters but the book overall was a disappointment. I loved Grace's story but that was about it.

Maryellen's treatment of Jon was atrocious, all because of a man from her past that hurt her. Come one. She is 35. It seemed ridiculous for her to be stuck on one bad relationship.

Seth and Justine's story was quite sweet but it was quite minor.

Although I didn't like Rosie or Zach I do appreciate Macomber representing two people who are both at fault for the end of a relationship but fail to see it. I couldn't side with either because they both played a part which I do like. But the story wasn't very interesting.

My main complaint about this book was that there are a lot of unanswered questions and open ends. It's like this was just a stepping stone book with no real ending. I don't mind when one or two things are left open ended but it seemed nothing was resolve at all. I ended up asking myself why I read this in the first place when I got to the last page.

Loved this book. I started reading these out of order, but it doesn't really matter. You really get to know these characters and fall in love with them. Debbie Macomber has done an excellent job with this series.

I'm sure this is in the category of âwomen's fiction,â if there is such a thing. I did not think I would like this book very much, nor the series. However, I found myself swept away by the first book in the series, 16 Lighthouse Road, and went straight to this book after finishing it! I never go from book to book in a series, but read something in between. Not this one! I was so interested and invested in the characters that I wanted to keep going. I'm not a typical romance reader, but while this series and book have romantic relationships, it doesn't feel like a âromanceâ novel. It is very well written and quite compelling! I really have enjoyed getting to know the characters!

2nd in the series.

Wonderful book abt several people in one town (Cedar Cove, Washington) just a ferry ride away from Seattle. All the characters have secrets, pasts, mysteries, troubles, etc. This series explores more of each of them in each book - esp. focusing on the residents of the title address.

"Macomber is known for honest portrayals of ordinary women...this cements her position as an icon of the genre." -Publishers Weekly

Residents of the close-knit community of Cedar Cove, Washington, have always assumed that Grace Sherman, the town librarian, is as demure as she appears - but they couldn't be more wrong. Underneath Grace's demure exterior, is a spine of steel that quickly surfaces when she must face the strange and sudden disappearance of her husband, Dan.

So, Cedar Cove bands together around one of its own, and Grace's family and friends bring great comfort to her during such a difficult time. But Grace is reminded that life can and does move on - and, amid the various weddings and births, and other major life events that occur in Cedar Cove - she must be strong enough to help her family deal with their own confusion and devastation at Dan's absence. However, will Grace's love, devotion, and dedication to her family in the face of such a personal tragedy, ultimately prove sufficient to keep them all together?

I must say that I haven't read that many books by Debbie Macomber before. The Shop on Blossom Street was my first one - and that was on a recommendation from my sister who lives in Australia. I'm usually not that much of a romance fan, but this book was a fast-paced and engaging story that I really enjoyed. Dan's disappearance certainly played an important role in the story - however, the romantic elements of the story weren't overwhelming; which is also something that I appreciated. I give this book a definite A!

This was such a good book and an easy read. I feel bad for Dan Sherman. I cant believe what happened with him. He was hurting so bad and it was haunting him. :( Then Mary Ellen ending up pregnant. She was my favorite character. Hoping she ends up with Jon Bowman.

Excellent 2nd book in the Cedar Cove series! The characters are so real, seems like the reader is a part of the community. The story unfolds as it should, and there is also some mystery and intrigue.
