I love living in Cedar Cove, but things haven't been the same since a man died in our B and B. Turns out his name was Max Russell, and Bob had known him briefly in Vietnam. We still don't have any idea why he came here and - most important of all - who killed him. Because it now appears that he was poisoned. I sure hope somebody figures it out soon!
Not that we're providing the only news in Cedar Cove these days. I heard that Jon Bowman and Maryellen Sherman are getting married. And Maryellen's mom, Grace, has more than her share of interested men! The question is: Which one is she going to choose? Olivia - I guess it's Olivia Griffin now - is back from her honeymoon, and her mother, Charlotte (who's in her mid-70s at least), seems to have a man in her life, too. I'm not sure Olivia's too pleased.
There's lots of other gossip I could tell you. Come by for a cup of tea and one of my blueberry muffins and we'll talk.
Pay another visit to Cedar Cove.

"The books in Macomber's contemporary Cedar Cove series are like a box of assorted Krispy Kremes: light and fluffy but irresistibly delicious and addictive." (Publishers Weekly)
so far my favourite in cedar cove series!
Grace-she is interesting and gutsy
She creates a story
Into intelligent thrillers, mysteries and fantasy with humour and a well woven story. Historical and political fiction also interests me.
The blurb suggested a suspense / mystery romance. I found the story boring to the point I kept zoning out. It is the first crime I have ever read where I have very quickly lost the will to find out who, how or why. From what I managed to stay tuned in for there was romance and the sadness of a lost child affecting a marriage. I found it took energy without giving much back. I gave up on it.
"Moving Right Along in Cedar Point"
I'm sticking with the series and still love the folks in Cedar Cove. Glad to say the murder gets solved, and not how you might expect . . . I sew and cook and listen . . . and ponder the goings on . . . Ready for book 5 . . .
"i am hooked on the narrator, author, and story."
i am jooked on the narrator, author, and story itself. the narrator does an amazing job adding to the story line. the series makes you feel like you are part of cedar cove.
"Bad romance, passive voice, poor plot"
The headline says it all, except that the performer would do well to skip the attempts to alter her voice. The effect is unfortunate at best.
If I had known what had been in store for me as a reader, I might have considered having been better - STOP - I can't do it any more. Sorry, just not passive enough.
"Longing for a better narrator"
Storyline is interesting. Characters are well rounded. Enjoy the variety of ages of the characters.
The narrator is stiff, formal, and over enunciates. She is unable to create believable voices, especially men.
Was a good story. A lot of repetition though in describing the past books and storylines.
Pleasant to read a story with good, pleasant character with no violence and not too much sex.
"An enjoyable series"
Yes debbie macombers books are very good .
Peggy Beldon she just seem to be interesting to me
I like her reading she has a very soothing voice helps to make you wan more
"Saga that keeps flowing"
This is the 4th book in the series that I have read. I enjoy following the character's lives. It is nice to have the background of the characters repeated too. The plots are good. I find myself reacting to the character's actions with comments!
With the number of characters in the book, I wish two readers had been hiring. Some of the voices are a bit too similar. especially the men's but it is not enough to stop me from reading.
"Love the series!"
Only listening, did not read. But listening to Sandra Burr narrate the story I think makes it better.
Keeping the characters going, makes me want to keep moving onto the next book.
Grace & Cliff...Olivia & Jack...Charolette/Ben...well all of them
A lot of both to make you laugh and cry....I figured out almost instantly who the killer was once the story progressed, still was surprised as to the why. I don't want to give away any details.
Can't wait to read/listen the next one in the series.
I love Debbie Macomber's style of writing. Her stories are wholesome and refreshing. But when the female narrator speaks in a male voice it just doesn't work for me. The men all sound the same and angry.
