Book Description

Jan. 20 2008 Cedar Cove Series (Book 1)
Olivia Lockhart 16 Lighthouse Road Cedar Cove, Washington Dear Listener, You don't know me yet, but in a few hours that's going to change. You see, I'm inviting you to my home and my town of Cedar Cove because I want you to meet my family, friends, and neighbors. Come and hear their stories - maybe even their secrets! I have to admit that my own secrets are pretty open. My marriage failed some years ago, and I have a rather…difficult relationship with my daughter, Justine. Then there's my mother, Charlotte, who has plenty of opinions and is always willing to share them. Here's an example: I'm a family court judge and she likes to drop in on my courtroom. Recently I was hearing a divorce petition. In Charlotte's view, young Cecilia and Ian Randall hadn't tried hard enough to make their marriage work - and I agreed. So I rendered my judgement: Divorce Denied. Well, you wouldn't believe the reaction! Thanks to an article by Jack Griffin, the editor of our local paper (and a man I wouldn't mind seeing more of!), everyone's talking. Cedar Cove - people love it and sometimes they leave it, but they never forget it! See you soon… Olivia

Product Description

From Amazon

Perennial favorite Debbie Macomber does what she does best in 16 Lighthouse Road, introducing fans to the scenic Pacific Northwest town of Cedar Cove, Washington, and its panoply of characters, including family court judge Olivia Lockhart who makes news when she denies the divorce petition of Cecilia and Ian Randall. Decreeing that the young couple had not tried hard enough to make their relationship work following the tragic death of their newborn daughter, Olivia's decision brings her to the attention of recent Cedar Cove arrival, newspaper editor Jack Griffin. And Jack's attentions are not entirely unwelcome for the long-divorced Olivia. In addition to her continued involvement in Cecilia and Ian's ongoing negotiations, Olivia's life is further complicated by her mother, Charlotte, her daughter, Justine, and her best friend, Grace, as they struggle with the difficult situations life tosses their way. Charlotte becomes enmeshed in trying to solve a mystery left to her by a mute stroke victim she befriends just before he dies. Justine has found the perfect man for her, one who shares her ambitions and thoughts on relationships, but why does she keep thinking about the boy she knew in high school who has grown into quite a man? And Grace's husband, Dan, has disappeared--again--and Grace has no idea where he is and when or if he'll be back. The multiple story lines and numerous relationships make reading at times challenging, but Macomber fans, old and new, will stand up and cheer as the prolific author lodges her protest against the disposable personal relationships all too common today. --Alison Trinkle --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

As a family court judge, Olivia Lockhart has dealt with numerous divorce suits but none as peculiar as Cecilia and Ian Randall's. Before the young couple was married the year before, Cecilia and Ian signed a prenuptial agreement stating their marriage would last a lifetime, but now, after the tragic death of their infant daughter, the two wish to rescind the agreement. Sensing that Cecilia and Ian are still in love, Olivia lets her heart guide her decision, and denies their petition. Olivia's decision makes headlines in The Cedar Cove Chronicle and earns her the admiration of the paper's editor, Jack Griffin, a newcomer to the small Washington town. While Jack courts Olivia, and Ian and Cecilia try to repair their marriage, Olivia's daughter is forced to decide whether she should marry a man whom she doesn't love; Olivia's best friend grows frantic over the disappearance of her husband; and Olivia's mother befriends a stroke patient who harbors a secret he would share if he could speak. Despite the novel's fragmented structure, readers will warm to its endearing characters. Prolific Macomber (Thursdays at Eight, etc.) is known for her honest portrayals of ordinary women in small-town America, and this tale cements her position as an icon of the genre. (Sept.)Forecast: A national print advertising campaign and a Northwest author tour scheduled to coincide with the publication of Macomber's latest offering will boost sales, and a rosy real-estate cover will increase the book's appeal to its target readership.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cedar Cove Series Feb. 11 2005
Format:Audio Cassette
I have read all the stories in the books of the Cedar Cove Series, and I could not put any of the books down until I had finshed reading them. It is the best series I have read to date and I can hardly wait until the next one is publised. I believe that will be this coming fall and I will keep watch for it. The families in these books are so real, I can picture all of them as they move about in your stories. Please accept my congratulations on your talent Debbie.
Sincerely, Joyce

2.0 out of 5 stars Sub-par read June 27 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I 'abandoned ship' on this book towards the end when there was an explosion on the aircraft carrier - the same thing happened in one of Macomber's 'Navy' books. I probably won't finish this series because Grace and Dan weren't interesting enough to make me want to find out where he went anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK book Nov. 17 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was good. I did think the characters Cecilia and Ian were sort of weak. They did not come across strong at all. I got 311 Pelican Court from the library not knowing there was a second book and Pelican Court was #3. After reading the reviews on Rosewood Lane, I will not read it. I found out in the third book what happened to Dan. I am enjoying Pelican Court.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Nov. 6 2003
By K. Doll
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an excellent book. I couldn't put it down. If you prefer reading a heartwarming story about a comfortable and cozy small town rather than a big city thriller, this book is for you. Macomber does a wonderful job of defining her characters and really brining their personalities to life. Debbie Macomber is quickly climbing to the ranks of Danielle Steel and Nora Roberts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better.... Dec 1 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
16 Lighthouse Road by Debbie Macomber
16 Lighthouse Road is a series of subplots within one book, where not one single subplot takes the lead. There are several stories found in this Macomber title. Olivia is a 50-something judge who presides over a divorce hearing and refuses to grant the divorce. The couple in question is Cecilia and Ian Randall, who have gone through their own private hell - loss of a baby which leads to their mess of a marriage.
Olivia herself is the focus of a subplot. She has been divorced for many years but has not remarried as her ex-husband has. Then, she meets Jack Griffin, newspaper editor of the local paper, and she finds herself interested. The feeling is mutual.
Another subplot is Charlotte, Olivia's mother, who is involved with many social groups including helping out at the hospital, where she meets an elderly man who cannot speak, because of a stroke.
Yet another subplot is the story of Justine, who is dating a much older man, and her mother is Olivia. She has no desire to settle down, but then starts to have conflicting emotions when she meets up again with an old high school mate, Seth.
There is nothing wrong with having several subplots in one book. The problem was that there was no main story, and the book reads like a soap opera. Debbie Macomber can write, but I have a feeling the fault here is her editor. There are repeated passages all over the book, where things could have been nicely condensed. Transitions from one scene to another are not very smooth. I would have enjoyed this book a lot better if someone had taken the time to proof read the book and do it right!
I have the second book in this series of books, 204 Rosewood Lane. I am hoping to find this book a much better edited book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is going to be a great series! Nov. 13 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Many reviewers have written about the content (characters) of the book so I won't delve too much into it for my review. I haven't read too many of Ms. Macomber's books but was interested in this first book in the Cedar Cove series. 16 LIGHTHOUSE ROAD introduces the reader to the town of Cedar Cove, Washington and some of its citizens. The mix of characters keeps the book interesting and although it has been mentioned as fragmented this type of writing is necessary to keep the storylines active. This is not just a romance. It does include some mystery that is not solved in this first book. As any series of books should be, 16 LIGHTHOUSE ROAD leaves you wanting more. This reviewer hopes that this is more than a trilogy. Thanks Debbie for a wonderful read.
