Two delightful tales

5-B Poppy Lane". In Cedar Cove, Washington, anti-war protester Ruth Shelton has been exchanging letters and email with USMC Sergeant Paul Gordon. However, he is coming home from Afghanistan on leave and wants to meet her in person. She has doubts because of his occupation. Adding a new prologue and epilogue to frame 5-B Poppy Lane (originally part of the Hearts Divided anthology), this is a terrific Washington State novella starring a heroic Marine and a realistic woman with doubts about a relationship with a soldier.

"A Cedar Cove Christmas". On Christmas Eve, pregnant Mary Jo Wyse comes to Cedar Cove, Washington seeking the father of her unborn David Rhodes. There are no commercial accommodations available in town, but Grace and Cliff Harding allow Mary Jo to sleep in the loft of their stable. When Mary Jo goes into labor, paramedic Mack McAfee attends to her. The three Wyse men, (bumbling brothers Linc, Mel and Ned) arrive to help their sister. Meanwhile Mary Jo has decided that instead of confronting David, who she has not found, she would prefer to be held by kindhearted Mack. However she doubts even this nice EMT would want to get involved with a woman who has just given birth. A Cedar Cove Christmas is an amusing and angst account of the Christmas saga with Puget Sound serving as the locale instead of Bethlehem; as a stable is a stable when it comes to hospitality for a pregnant woman. The cast is solid but it is the visitor Mary Jo who provides the anxiety, focus and equilibrium to a very Merry Christmas romp.

Disapointed - A reprint of a 2006 and a 2008 book

Imagine my disappointment. I had just finished reading 1022 Evergreen Place anxious to read Christmas in Cedar Cove to discover that it's two books I've already read, in 2006 and 2008. If you're a new commer to the series, it's a nice way to get to know the characters. ...
Imagine my disappointment. I had just finished reading 1022 Evergreen Place anxious to read Christmas in Cedar Cove to discover that it's two books I've already read, in 2006 and 2008. If you're a new commer to the series, it's a nice way to get to know the characters. However, if you're a fan and wait each September for the next book in the series, you'll be disappointed. Shame on me for not checking the inside page for the publish dates, shame on you for not being upfront that it's reprinted books with a couple pages of new material.

    Same book different cover and title

    This is VERY misleading!! If you have read "A Cedar Cove Christmas" do not buy this book. It is the same story that is at the end of this book, but titled "Christmas in Cedar Cove". I thought this was a continuation of the other story, it's not. Very disappointed and a big waste of money.

    Not worth the money.

    First off let me say I hate having to buy a book twice. I enjoyed reading A Cedar Cove Christmas but I had purchased it by itself as well it should be, not tacked on to some other purchase.

    As for 5-B Poppy Lane, if I had wanted a history lesson I would go back to school and get my degree. Not enough of a "feel good" story here even with the happy ending.
