Terri writes so that the people in the store are like old friends. It is a great read, I love all her books. The area sounds like a great place to live.

A decade ago Grace Stone and Beau Hamilton broke up. She moved to Cedar Key, Florida where she opened up "Coffee, Tea and Thee". Recently she convinced her beloved Aunt Maude to move from Brunswick to Cedar Key. However, while helping her relative, Grace learns her coffee shop and her apartment were destroyed in a fire. Maude invites Grace to live with her in the historic "Coachman House" and partner with her in turning the large home into "The Blue Moon Knitting Retreat". Grace and Lucas Trudeau, the newcomer who owns the Book Shop, meet and are attracted to one another. Meanwhile her estranged sister Chloe arrives, which in Grace's mind means trouble and nastiness as she and her sibling have never gotten along. This is a warm tender contemporary tale starring a strong cast who bond one stitch at a time. The amazing Grace is the glue that holds the plot together as she reinvents herself for the second time. The secondary characters enhance the engaging novel as knitting brings together a caring sisterhood. Terri DuLong provides a charming Cedar key sunrise. Harriet Klausner

I felt that this story was too much this happened and then this happened and this was a problem but wow here is the solution. The sisters' emotions were well done but their situations were just too pat. Books 1 and 2 were better.

I found the writing to be very akward, and what also disturbed me was how everything was so sunny and happy and right.

This is a great chick book. If you love to knit this is the book for you. The characters are real, face real problems. There is a strong bond between the women in the book and a lot of support among them. The community itself is very close knit. It makes you was to move to Cedar Key and go to the knitters retreat

Terri Dulong brings us back to the eclectic fishing village of Cedar Key, Florida with her third installment of her women’s fiction series whose heart-warming and humorous cast of characters is as close-knit as a cable sweater! An early morning call to Grace who is out of town gathering her Aunt Maude in her much anticipated relocation to Cedar Key sets off a chain reaction of life-altering events. The pages revolve around lessons learned in the importance of “family” whether related or not, (the fact that you cannot do anything about who you are actually related to, notwithstanding). Grace finds herself in an up close and personal interaction with her estranged older sister, which provides them both with the long overdue insight to events that eventually bond them together. Grace finds herself at last facing the source that initially sent her off in escape to Cedar Key. This not so chance meeting which she had avoided thus far, at last provides her with the closure needed to open her heart to another. Filled with women’s empowerment (and the love of knitting!), Sunrise on Cedar Key makes for some very enjoyable reading and leaves you with wondrous thoughts as to what the next installment will likely have in store for us.

Sunrise on Cedar Keys by Terri Dulong Such tragedy at the very beginning of this story: Grace not only loses her coffee shop but her apartment in a fire while she is picking up an aunt that is relocating to the island. To make matters worse as she's settling into the new house with her and they discuss a new business venture that both are really excited about: knitting weekend retreat. Sounds like heaven to me along with the local yarn store providing yarn, etc but a call from her older married sister makes her become very angry. She's had everything she's ever wanted in life and now it's all crumbled and Grace is allowing her to come live with them til the divorce. And her best friend Suellen also wants to relocate to the island. I'm in love with this seaside town. They take care of the stray animals with donations. Love the idea of their business and wish it was real-it'd be an ideal vacation spot. Like the intrigue of the tarot cards, quite interesting along with island folklore and the history. Now Grace has cravings of having a child before she's too old because another friend is having a baby. Having the cleaning womans' child with them all at the holidays really shows the cheer on the island. some old things are brought up and they can destroy many lives. Just when they had found one another. I rate this book a 5 for the different point of view-it's refreshing. The characters are just so huggable. The scenery and comfort you can find on the island is just precious. Closeness and the ability to talk to one another to work through problems really got to me. And another book in this series is in the works. I hadn't realized there were 2 other books prior to this one. I will have to go get them and read them.

Sunrise on Cedar Key By: Terri Dulong Copyright: November 2011 Publisher: Kensington Fiction For the second time in ten years, Grace Stone is starting over on Cedar Key. Grace first moved to the serene island to escape a disastrous relationship. Now a visit with her Aunt Maude is interrupted by unwelcome news: Grace's apartment and coffee shop have been destroyed by fire. Grace is devastated, yet ever-practical Maude has a plan. While she helps Grace resettle, Maude even has a business venture in mind-weekend knitting retreats where women can craft, chat, and support one another. But other surprises await her, including the return of Grace's estranged sister, and a tentative romance with the local bookstore owner. Knitting together her past and future will mean untangling the painful threads Grace left behind. But the result could be a vibrant new life-and the courage to live it fully. . . Gracie is visiting her aunt Maude to help her with her move to Cedar Key. She is awakened at 5:30 am by the insistent ringing of her cell phone. She is barely awake when Jim Jacobs the town's Fire Chief informs her that her apartment and the coffee shop under it have been totally destroyed by fire. This is NOT what she wants to hear this early in the day. All she has left are the clothes she brought to her aunt's house. She is distressed and overwhelmed by the enormity of this abrupt change to her life. Aunt Maude offers to let Gracie live in the upstairs apartment at her new house until she finds other quarters and also explains that she wants Gracie as a partner in her new business venture. So with all these things reverberating through her head, she and her aunt finish packing aunt Maude's belongings and hit the road for Cedar Key. Grace and her sister have not and do not get along. Finding out that Mrs. Perfect is separated and getting divorced, AND moving to Cedar Key is putting a lot of strain on Gracie's ability to plan what and how she is going to get things back on track. This is a story about family, reconciliation, love, new business ventures, and a large box of tissues. Terri DuLong has the gift for pulling you into the world of her story with her storytelling. I felt like I was in the room with the characters and witnessing their lives first hand. FTC Full Disclosure: This book was supplied by the publishers in hopes of a fair and impartial review.

Grace Stone relocated to Cedar Key, Florida ten years ago, to heal and begin a new life-one without ex-love, Beau Hamilton!! After much worry and coaxing, she finally convinces her Aunt Maude; the special lady who raised her from pre-teen to adult, into moving from Brunswick to Cedar Key, so they could be closer in her declining years. While Grace is in the process of helping Aunt Maude pack for the move, she receives a life-altering phone call. Her beloved coffee Shop; "Coffee, Tea and Thee" had been destroyed by fire along with her apartment and just about everything she owned. After the initial shock has passed, it is Aunt Maude to the rescue with a solution, by offering Grace a home in the historic "Coachman House" that Maude had purchased, with an idea, that with the resurgence of knitting, she will turn the accompanying cavernous carriage house into a weekend haven for knitters named "The Blue Moon Knitting Retreat" and asks Grace if she would be her partner in the venture. Grace agrees to both and this change in her life is accompanied by the renewal of old friendships and making new ones, especially Lucas Trudeau; the handsome Frenchman, who is about to open a Book Shop in Cedar key. Despite the hectic schedule of getting the retreat advertised for bookings and her jumbled life settled in the extra apartment in the "Coachman House". Grace's past seems to haunt her day and night and cause her unrest. Secrets hidden deeply within her, begin to surface both in her dreams and in the tarot cards. Calm, ordinary days turn into a "roller coaster ride of life", for just as Grace thinks it could be smooth sailing-her snarky, older, soon-to-be-divorced sister, Chloe; shows up in Cedar key! Grace is sure Chloe will throw their lives into turmoil, as they never got along when they were younger. We all go through changes in our lives; some, good.some, not so great. You will follow Grace as she deals with what life hands her, complete with truths, lies, misconceptions and doubts. But above all, as Aunt Maude so succinctly put it, "Love follows us in death as it does in life". And Love does conquer all! I haven't had the pleasure of reading this author's previous works yet, but I hope you'll enjoy this continuation of characters from the series as much as I did. It is one that should not be missed and I can only hope Ms. DuLong has a sequel in the works in the not-to-distant for us to enjoy. Nancy Narma

Review by JoAnne: This is the third book in the Cedar Key series and it didn't disappoint. It was great reconnecting with characters from the first two books in the series as well as meet new arrivals who will play a part in future books. As you get back into Cedar Key you feel like you're a part of the small but thriving community. Knitting and romance are once again in the forefront. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am already looking forward to book 4. Quote: "I thought back to Beau and my miscarriage. I thought I had faced my situation, but it wasn't until I saw Beau again and all of it came out into the open that I felt it was truly behind me. I had a feeling my sister was attempting to do the same thing."
