8 Sandpiper Way - Cedar Cove Series Author:Debbie Macomber Olivia Lockhart-GriffinCedar Cove, WashingtonI'm pretty shocked by something I've just heard. Emily Flemming is afraid that her husband, Dave, might be having an affair. She apparently found an earring in his pocket?and it wasn't hers. And she says he's been coming home late and acting secretive. Not only that, some jewelry was recently stolen f... more »rom an old woman, and Dave (in his capacity as pastor) used to visit her a lot?.This is all so hard to believe! Dave's a good pastor and a good man. He and Emily appear to have the perfect life, with their children, Matthew and Mark, and their lovely home at 8 Sandpiper Way. But I guess things aren't always as they seem. Listener, I'd love to hear what you think, and so does Emily.I have some personal news, too?it's turning out to be a challenging year. But there are also some interesting updates about our friends in Cedar Cove. Like Sheriff Troy Davis, to mention one. Guess what? His long-ago love, Faith Beckwith, has just moved back here!Hope you'll join Emily and me for a cup of tea soon. Olivia« less
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.
