Christmas in Cedar Cove: 5-B Poppy Lane/A Cedar Cove Christmas by Debbie Macomber

First, drop in at 5-B Poppy Lane, where you'll get a chance to visit with Helen Shelton, her granddaughter Ruth and Ruth's husband, Paul. They'll offer you a cup of mulled cider and the story of how they met—and they'll share Helen's breathtaking adventures during the Second World War.

Then drive out to Grace and Cliff Harding's place. They have a small horse ranch not far from Cedar Cove. Mary Jo Wyse and her little girl, Noelle, will be there, too. Join them in reliving their memories of the Christmas Mary Jo came to Cedar Cove, pregnant and alone, and had her baby in the Hardings' stable (well, actually the apartment above it). That's the night firefighter Mack McAfee began to fall for Mary Jo and the idea of a family—with her.

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.

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.

I just LOVED this book with the two stories and especially the 2nd one with that sweet story following the FIRST Christmas...I have lover watching the TV series about Cedar Cove so feel like I know all these people already. Thank you Debbie for sharing this wonderful gift God gave to share that gift to all of us. Maeve Binchy had been one of my favorite author and now I am so happy you write such sweet stories about our country like she did about Ireland . Thank you so much for such clean,heart warming ,non-violent reading.Shirley DeVinney...PSAGWF I once visited your area and fell in love with it all. And I enjoyed your descriptions that brought back some happy memories

Since I have watched the Cedar Cover series on the Hallmark Channel, it was fun to read this and picture all the characters! It is a lovely story.

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.

I love how Debbie turned the story of Jesus' birth into a real life story of today. Jesus had 3 Wise men...this story has 3 Wyse men....very creative. I love this part of the sequel.

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. Harriet Klausner

Didn't love this one just because it is mostly excerpts from a couple other books in the series with only a minimal amount of pages of something new ... I just thought it would be its own thing...

Really enjoyed 5-B Poppy Lane. I have always enjoyed stories with history involved because it brings stories to life.

This was an interesting way to introduce someone into the Cedar Cove family. I found the three brothers to be unrealistically bumbling, but the story line was refreshing. This is the way to get two books for one.
