Return to Cedar Cove...I missed my "friends"

Time to re-visit Cedar Cove and catch up with all our old friends and some of our newer friends! I was a bit disappointed in the last couple of Cedar Cove books, but this one turned it all around for me. It was like a welcome home for me.

Time to re-visit Cedar Cove and catch up with all our old friends and some of our newer friends! I was a bit disappointed in the last couple of Cedar Cove books, but this one turned it all around for me. It was like a welcome home for me.

This time around the story focuses on Mary Jo Wyse and Mack McAfee. They both love each other, but have been skirting around telling each other and keeping each other at arm's length. They are brought together through a series of letters Mary Jo finds under the floor boards of her closet (she found them in [book:92 Pacific Blvd]. They tell a story of a soldier during WWII and his love for the girl back home. They both are exciting to solve the mystery of what happened to both the soldier and his girl.

Secondary stories include:

*Shirley and Tanni Bliss. Mother and daughter are both dealing with love issues.

*Christie and James. These two have been going back and forth with each other for years. It is a small story line, but it is nice to follow up with them again.

*The whole McAfee family. They are going through so many changes and Roy and Corrie are having a bit of a hard time keeping up with all their children.

*Rachel, Bruce, and Jolene. Rachel and Jolene still aren't getting along and Bruce seems to just ignore it. More complications set back the family and it seems they just might not be able to hold it together.

I love stepping back into Cedar Cove. Macomber has a way of making all the characters come alive. You may not like all of the characters, but she paints them in a why that you can understand them. They are all real and feel like people you may know in your own life. After 10 plus books, they have become like friends to me.

As usual, the book have vignettes of each character's story and then jumps to the next story. Each time it would happen I would be disappointed, but within a couple of lines I was excited to read about the next character's woes.

I honestly can't say I was all that excited to read about Mack and Mary Jo. They were only so-so to me in the past books. I liked them, but just did not get me all that excited. I was surprised at how quickly I came to like them and care about them. They frustrated me, but I hoped for them to work things out.

My biggest complaint is that it ended and I have to wait until September of 2011 to return to Cedar Cove and catch up with my friends! No, No, No! I wish I could just keep reading about them. I want to know how they are all doing. *sigh* I will just have to wait.

Well written, fast read. An excellent addition to the Cedar Cove series.
*I received this book from the publisher via netgalley to review*

I have never been as annoyed with fictional characters as I was with the ones in this book. Half of them had conversations where they admitted the wise decision to make and then just decided to do the opposite for no real reason. A woman who knew from experience how three lives were affected when a woman didn't tell her ex that she was pregnant decided that in her case it was perfectly okay and paternal rights weren't something that she needed to recognize. And the blended family that let a bratty teenager destroy a marriage made me scream too. I realize that people make mistakes and let situations get out of control sometimes, but this was ridiculous, and that's coming from a soap opera fan.

    Stretched..

    As much as I have loved the Cedar Cove series I think that Debbie needs to remind herself that her avid readers do not need to be continuously be reminded of so much of the past background -It has been a delight reading this series and I usually am anxiously awaiting the next Cedar Cove release so I hope Sept 2011 is crisper in presentation.

    Disappointed!

    I usually enjoy Debbie Macomber's books so much. This book had such an odd ending. It just stopped! I was disappointed and couldn't believe it.
