As usual, the read is quick and delightful with the regret being we have to wait until September of 2010 for the next installment ! This series along the Blossom Street series are two of my favorites when looking for warm, comforting books that make you feel better about the world. While not the same as Jan Karon's Mitford series or Philip Gulley's Harmony series, they share some similarities and I always look(ed) forward to what was coming next. My one mistake was that I had assumed the book "A Cedar Cove Christmas" published in October of 2008 was more of a stand-alone book rather than being the continuing story. I obviously missed some things that happened by not reading it and wish I would have. I was saving it for this coming holiday season and I'm looking forward to finding out all the details!
If you haven't read these, the best bet would be to go back to the beginning "16 Lighthouse Road" and go along in order. While enjoyable to just pick this one up and the author does a great job of giving you the information you need to know who people are -- it would be better to have all the history if possible.
A quick warning: One of the older reviews (dated August 27) is very brief but contains a major spoiler with no warning. There is one "mystery" that is introduced at the beginning of the book and the answer isn't revealed until close to the end. This review tells you the answer. It might be best to read that review after you have completed the book yourself.
This story focuses on Troy Davis, the town sheriff who lives at 92 Pacific Boulevard. Readers have been following his on-again, off-again relationship with Faith and a resolution is near. Olivia, Grace, and Charlotte, the mainstays of Cedar Cove, are in full force. Olivia is still dealing with her cancer and we see quite clearly the friendship bond between her and Grace as well as how Charlotte deals with her daughter's illness. We also catch up with Terri Polgar who is pregnant with triplets, her sister Christie, Rachel in her new marriage to Bruce and the problems they are having with his daughter Jolene, Gloria Ashton's romance with the handsome clinic doctor, Linc's unusual romance with new character Lori, and bad boy Will Jefferson's courtship of artist Shirley Bliss. A good deal of this book focuses on Mary Jo Wyse from A Cedar Cove Christmas who has caught the attention of Mack McAfee. These two are sharing a duplex at 1022 Evergreen Place, the location for the next installment in the series. A cliff-hanger piques curiosity for this next book which will apparently look back at a World War II romance.
For a warm and comforting read, one that gives you a little mystery, a little romance, and a whole lot of friendship, you need look no further than this wonderful series about Cedar Cove.
This series started 9 years ago and she releases a new installment at the end of the summer each year. The number at the beginning of the address tells what book it is (for example 16 Lighthouse Road was first and 92 Pacific Boulevard is ninth). Each address belongs to one character or couple and the main story or mystery will revolve around him, her or them while all the other characters continue to make an appearance and continue forward with their lives. From when the series started a few characters have moved or passed away but most of them are the same although their lives may have changed. This installment deals with Sheriff Troy Davis and Faith Beckwith who was his first love but due to circumstances they ended up happily married to other people. Both are now widowed. A misunderstanding took place in the last book and they are still working through the fall-out plus Troy is trying to solve the case of the 25 year old skeleton found in a cave by two teenagers as well as looking for the person responsible for vandalizing Faith's rental home. Olivia is still fighting cancer and Ben continues to have problems and to be disappointed by his grown son David.
These characters feel like friends. It is a testament to Macomber that they feel like real people, the whole town feels real. There are times when I feel like authors allow their series to go on too long, but that is not the case here. The only issue I have is that since it's been awhile since I read the last books I sometimes forget details. That being said, Macomber does drop hints and have people reminisce about things to catch the reader up on what has changed. This is a great book to curl up and relax with. I didn't want it to end and look forward to late August next year for the next installment.
On a side note, a cookbook was also released in hardcover which I am currently reading (look for a review in the next few days). The cookbook uses the characters from the series.
"92 Pacific Boulevard" is another nicely done entry in Debbie Macomber's ongoing soap opera like series set in Cedar Cove, Washington. A large portion of the book focuses on Troy Davis as he tries to win back Faith Beckwith and tries to find out who is targeting her house with vandalism. The romance portion is nicely done as Troy and Faith, both of whom have lost their spouses, find another chance at love; however the solution of the vandalism plot is a bit of a letdown. The same can be said for the story of the skeletal remains - it is pretty easy to figure out who knows what happened and the solution is disappointing. Storylines that work much better include Olivia's ongoing struggle with breast cancer; Rachel and Bruce's adjustment to married life; Mack and Mary Jo's burgeoning romance; and the Christie-James romance which is my favorite plot in the book. However, a plot involving Mary Jo's brother Linc comes out of nowhere and is hard to believe.
Debbie Macomber's strength is her storytelling and ability to create characters that readers care about and the charm of the Cedar Cove series is that while some characters' plot lines are sewn up in each book they are still around and readers feel like they are visiting old friends. And Macomber always manages to leave her readers satisfied yet wanting to visit Cedar Cove again - if only to find out what happens next to Mary Jo and Mack, if Will really has changed, and if David Rhodes will continue to disappoint his father.
