Debbie Macomber has written another compelling book based on the town of Cedar Cove. The book is full of stories that intertwine about the various characters and their ups and downs, success in love, and at times failures. This particular book revolves around some love letters and a diary that are found dating from WWII by Mary Jo and Mac, and the search for the author of the letters. If you have not read prior Cedar Cove books, the author will of course refresh your mind about the characters, who continue from prior books, but unlike some authors, does not make this the main filler of the new book.

What I love about this book, as well as her other books, is that her characters are so believable and human. They are like people you know quite well, and she gives little everyday sort of details that really make you feel as if you are there and can see it all unfold. For example, where they sit in a restaurant and what they order. Her characters are artists, gallery owners, judges, newspaper reporters, grandmothers, ranchers, firemen, and more. Macomber is also quite good at not making mistakes as some authors do, when carrying a rather large cast of characters and their characteristics over from book to book.

The only complaint that I have is that she left several characters in cliff-hangers, and the next book will not be out until Sept. 2011. It will be a long wait, since I cannot wait to see how the story unfolds.
