seems to be the final book in the Cedar Cove series...enjoyed how endings were kind of tie up...but could possibly leave enough questions for a revisit sometime in the future...love all Debbie's books!

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.

this book started out so slow...I didn't really get interested until the fifth or sixth chapter...I decided to give it a chance and finish it...was not a total loss...left me wanting to know more of the plot...decided to go on to book two of the series...

this third book in Marta Perry's Pleasant Valley series focuses on a girl who left the Amish way of life...but has returned after three years...as an unwed mother...although the circumstance's surrounding her return are totally not what you would expect...and as the story unfolds...you find some parts so heartwarming they will make you cry...but others...very dull and not worth reliving...each of the books in this series could well be read as a stand alone...as the tie-ins are only lightly touched upon...it is a good read though and does tell of what has happened to some of the beginning characters...

Breaking the Cycle is a stunning and moving anthology of stories, each of which focuses on an aspect of domestic abuse. This powerful collection is sure to serve as a wake-up call for people either dealing with a domestic abuse situation, or those watching someone else endure it.

Very blunt wording. Covers this topic well. many resources listed for those needing help. overall good book.

this sounded like a really good read...but I just couldn't get in to the author's writing style...I started this book several times and read the first few chapters...but just couldn't continue reading.

I won this book through a contest...and agreed to review it...overall I really enjoyed the story...it was different from many of the Amish stories I've read...but still truly believable...the characters were not portrayed as deeply as I like...and the timing was off some between events...some parts seemed to be chopped...as though written quickly just to add detail...I think this would be a good read for young adults who are just getting in to Christian reading...I do see lots of potential for this author ...and will continue to follow her writing...as this is the first in a series...I will be watching for the second book.

another engrossing read by Sandra...I was worried when I picked this book up...how was she going to tie all the missing women together...but I should have known...she is a master storyteller...her characters were not as in depth as some of her other books...and the clues for solving this one were widely scattered...but I was able to pinpoint the murderer before the book ended...
