8 Sandpiper Way - Cedar Cove, Bk 8 Author:Debbie Macomber Dear Reader, — I have something to confide in you. I think my husband, Dave, might be having an affair. I found an earring in his pocket, and it's not mine. I'm also worried because some jewelry was recently stolen from an old woman -- and Dave used to visit her a lot. — You see, he's a pastor. And a good man. I can't believe he... more »9;s guilty of anything, but why won't he tell me where he's been when he comes home so late?
Reader, I'd love to hear what you think. I also want to tell you what's going on with your other friends in Cedar Cove. Like Sheriff Troy Davis, to mention one. His long-ago love, Faith Beckwith, just moved here!
I've enjoyed all of Debbie Macomber's books, including this Cove series, but this one was so ho hum to the point of being boring. I'm surprised the characters in the book didn't fall off the pages in a dead sleep. Too much of it was repeating the things from previous books. There was nothing exciting in it to make me want to read the next one in the series.
I did not enjoy this book and skipped a lot of the chapters. I like this author's writing; I don't like it when each chapter is a separate story and the reader needs to learn a whole new story, new people and new circumstances every few pages. The story is all chopped into pieces and it's several chapters before you return to the story and people you started with. Then you read another few pages about them, then suddenly the next chapter is about someone else you probably met about 4 chapters ago, and so on and so on. If you like this style of writing and you have kept up with all the people living in Cedar Grove during the past several books, you'll probably enjoy this book. But if you don't yet know anyone in Cedar Grove, I would recommend you start with an earlier book in the series.

First book in this series I have ever read. I enjoyed the book. Had a hard time putting it down. Got so wrapped up in all the characters. I felt so sorry for Emily & her husband Dave. And also felt bad for sheriff Davis & Faith. I sure will go back and read all the books before this one in this series. Good reading.
Book #8 in the Cedar Cove series. This book is about Dave and Emily Flemming the pastors of Cedar Cove. Of course, you catch up some on the other members of the town. I enjoy this series, but you do need to read them in order as they build on each other and there is a little mystery in each. There is also always an unanswered question or mystery at the end of each book that is answered or solved in the next book.
