Was so worth waiting for.....look forward to the next book in the Cedar Cove series...1022 Evergreen Place!! Never a disappointment!!!
Book #9 in the Cedar Cove series. I always enjoy these books in this series. It is better if you read the whole series as the characters make more sense. The books always finish a story from a previous book, have a story that ends in the book and creates a new question that will be solved in the next book.
I find the characters interesting and pleasingly complicated. It keeps me coming back for more and waiting for the next book to come out
Debbie Macomber has done herself proud again. Troy and Faith finally find each other along with several of the other characters. There are many new parents or soon-to-be parents, just in time for the next address in the series.
Just another Cedar Cove book, but a must read if your reading the others. This book is a light read, and very enjoyable!
I love to read Debbie Macomber's books because I always come away feeling a bit more positive about life and people in general. This book is her latest in the Cedar Cove series. The fictional town of Cedar Cove is based on her own town and at the end of August they hosted Cedar Cove Days and from what I've read it sounds like it was a big success (I did not attend the event).
This series started 9 years ago and she releases a new installment at the end of the summer each year. The number at the beginning of the address tells what book it is (for example 16 Lighthouse Road was first and 92 Pacific Boulevard is ninth). Each address belongs to one character or couple and the main story or mystery will revolve around him, her or them while all the other characters continue to make an appearance and continue forward with their lives. From when the series started a few characters have moved or passed away but most of them are the same although their lives may have changed. This installment deals with Sheriff Troy Davis and Faith Beckwith who was his first love but due to circumstances they ended up happily married to other people. Both are now widowed. A misunderstanding took place in the last book and they are still working through the fall-out plus Troy is trying to solve the case of the 25 year old skeleton found in a cave by two teenagers as well as looking for the person responsible for vandalizing Faith's rental home. Olivia is still fighting cancer and Ben continues to have problems and to be disappointed by his grown son David.
These characters feel like friends. It is a testament to Macomber that they feel like real people, the whole town feels real. There are times when I feel like authors allow their series to go on too long, but that is not the case here. The only issue I have is that since it's been awhile since I read the last books I sometimes forget details. That being said, Macomber does drop hints and have people reminisce about things to catch the reader up on what has changed. This is a great book to curl up and relax with. I didn't want it to end and look forward to late August next year for the next installment.
