Overview

1022 Evergreen Place, Unit B,
Cedar Cove, Washington

Dear Listener,
Guess what? I’m falling in love! With Mack McAfee.
My baby daughter, Noelle, and I have been living next door to Mack since the spring. I’m still a little wary about our relationship, because I haven’t always made good decisions when it comes to men. My baby’s father, David Rhodes, is testament to that. I’m so worried he might sue for custody.
In the meantime, the World War II letters I found are a wonderful distraction. Both Mack and I are trying to learn what happened to the soldier who wrote them and the woman he loved.
Come by sometime for a glass of iced tea and I’ll show you the letters. Plus I’ll tell you the latest about Grace and Olivia, my brother Linc and his wife, Lori (who tied the knot about five minutes after they met!), and all our other mutual friends. Oh, and maybe Mack can join us.…

Mary Jo Wyse

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.

Debbie Macomber again leaves me wanting to know more about these characters. She has a writing style that is easy to read and I can always envision her characters in real-life. It is beginning however to get a bit cumbersome for her to write these books for readers who are new to the series. Too much of the book is taken up with explaining the back story of the characters. By this tenth book, she has a lot of characters and a huge back story. Maybe just a bit longer in the character description at the front of the book would give her current characters more room to live in the text. Still would recommend this book and will continue to read all that she produces.

In Cedar Cove, Washington, when firefighter Mack McAfee and Mary Jo Wyse met as neighbors they were attracted to each other. He even used his paramedic skills last Christmas while she gave birth to aptly named Noelle (see A Cedar Cove Christmas). Excited by their feelings, he proposed and she accepted. However, both begin to doubt the wisdom of their rush. Mary Jo distrusts her former husband David Rhodes and fears he will come for their daughter Noelle; not because he wants her but to punish her mother. David vows to keep the mother and daughter he loves safe. Mary Jo becomes enthralled with a box of WWII love letters she finds underneath the floorboards (see 92 Pacific Boulevard). She wants to know more about the man who wrote them. She turns to Mack to assist her in learning who this romantic was; even as they learn who they are to each other and to baby Noelle. The return to Cedar Cove will excite fans of the saga as the continuing stories of the cast supports the prime story line of Mack and Mary Jo coming to grips on their feelings for each other; newcomers on the other hand will find it difficult to take the plunge. Well written, the audience will welcome this fine tale as the back-ups in previous entries take center stage. Harriet Klausner

I really enjoyed reading this book that is a bunch of stories of people living in Cedar Cove, WA. I must admit, the book ended in quite a weird way. I was pretty upset about that, but then read other reviews and realized that this is part of an ongoing series. The next book should be out in a couple of months and I'll be in line to get it so I can find out what happens next! I'm now wondering if I should go back and read the first nine. Has anyone read this series and know if that would be a good idea or will having read the tenth mess up the storyline?

This story relates to so many couples relationships in today's world. So realistic. Just an FYI...as a girl in school with reading difficulties, I hated to read. Because of the Cedar Cove Series, I know love to read and my husband gave me a Nook Color for my birthday. I would of never guessed that one day my 2 favorite hobbies would be reading and knitting...This is what happens when the kids grow up...Loving my life and waiting for 1105 Yakima Street. Thanks Debbie

Anyone who has not read any of the Cedar Cove stories should start at the beginning and just keep on reading until the last! I sure hate to see this series coming to an end. Guess I will have to start at the beginning of another one of Debbie Macomber's other series.

I love this series, easy reading. I do agree with many that going over the character back ground in every book is not needed. It's a series people should start with the first book and read on. I hope this series goes on longer then the current 12 books. I started reading this series because it was going to be on TV. The TV show isn't half a good as the books. This was my first time reading any books by Debbie Macomber and I got hooked.

The story of a small town around Puget Sound and its inhabitants keeps moving as the lives of the residents weave in and out in life's drama. Interesting and a good read.
