DO NOT BUY June 2 2013
By Rachael - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was a terrible book. It appeared to be unedited and still contained spelling and grammatical mistakes. The plot line was flimsy and the characters contained no depth, they simply appeared superficial and reacted in ways that normal humans rarely do. The knitting was only a small sideline to the terrible Millls and Boon love story it was. I will never read another book by this author again.

don't bother. The characters are shallow and stereotypical and the plot is predictable. I finished it, but I'm not sure why.

Series Losing Steam (2 stars) May 3 2013
By Obsidian Blue - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third novel in Terri Dulong's "Cedar Key" series. All of her novels take place on the island of Cedar Key off the coast of Florida.

I did enjoy the first two novels in Ms. Dulong's series, Spinning Forward (Cedar Key) and Casting About. Though I enjoyed the characters I thought Ms. Dulong needed to include more information on knitting since that was the part of the plot in both stories.

In her latest, this novel focuses on Monica Brooks best friend Grace Stone. From the last novel we know that Grace has a coffee shop that she managed to hold onto when developers did their best to drive her out of business. However, due to a lightning storm she loses her entire store and her apartment. Luckily her Aunt Maude is moving to Cedar Key and Grace moves in with her and begins a new business that will focus on knitting retreats for women. Grace's estranged older sister, Chole, also ends up moving to Cedar Key and the two women start to tentatively form a relationship with one another.

I wish that I could recommend this novel but this is definitely the weakest, in my opinion, of the series.

First, as was the problem with the other two novels though the characters mention knitting, cabling, etc. it is left vague with no details about how one does the knitting and what is the difference in the types of materials. I think that if Ms. Dulong is going to have knitting in this novel then you must describe it to the reader. I have no idea what knit one, pearl one is or about the fibers that the women were using and styles.

Second, Grace was just not a character that I cared for at all in this novel. She is at terms selfish, delusional, and angry. The author goes into Grace's past and you found out more about her previous relationship and why she has a hard time forming relationships. However, readers finding out about her previous relationship made her even less sympathetic to me as a character. Her interactions with her sister also I found sorely lacking.

Third, all of the other secondary characters except for Luc were cardboard cut-outs to me. Previous protagonists Sydney and Monica show up, but say very little. Considering that Monica is Grace's best friend they barely interacted in this novel. Sydney's, Nick never shows up at all in this novel which is very odd since we know from "Spinning Forward" that his mother lives on the island and he has a home there. The same thing happened with Monica's husband Adam, he just became a non-entity in this story.

Fourth, there is a plot development dealing with Monica Brook's yarn store that stretched credibility to me. We know from the last book that money is tight for the family and would be more so now so the resolution with the yarn store made no sense at all.

Fifth, to me the main focus of this novel kept shifting around so much. I started to just start to rush through the novel to just finish it already.

I would only recommend to readers who read the previous two novels who may want a peek (and I mean peek) at former characters.

page-turning and compelling Oct. 8 2013
By Wendy L. Hines - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The evening before her move back to Cedar Keys, Gracie gets a phone call that shocks her to her core. Her coffee house and apartment have burned down. Luckily, her Aunt Maude has just purchased property in Cedar Keys and implores Gracie to rent the second apartment on her property.
Maude has an idea about having knitting retreat weekends, and with the love of knitting the family has, Gracie jumps at the idea and offers to partner the small business. However, there's one clinch in their plans. Gracie's older sister, Chloe, is going through a divorce and needs a place to stay and of course Maude can't say no. Unfortunately, Gracie and Chloe don't get along well.

Monica is pregnant and kept very busy. Her yarn store is going to be important to the new knitting retreat business, but it's more than Monica can juggle right now, so Dora and Chloe decide to partner up to run the store.

A tight community of women who lean on one another when times are tough and embrace one another in times of joy, Sunrise on Cedar Key is a heart-warming read! From laughter to tears, heartbreak to falling in love, there is something to cherish with the friendships these women nurture and build their lives upon. Even when the times get tough, they dig deep and find the strength to carry on. Terri Dulong is a master storyteller and her Cedar Key series is page-turning and compelling with wonderful characters. You won't want to miss it!

I bought this book because Cedar Key is one of my favorite places in the whole word. Cedar Key brings many pleasant memories to mind especially of my family. This book celebrates this wonderful town and the importance of family and friends as one faces the trials and tribulations of life. This is the first of Terri DuLong.s books that I have read. It is most definitely women's literature. Have fun with this fast read!
