1022 Evergreen Place, Unit B
Cedar Cove, Washington
Guess what? I’m falling in love! With Mack McAfee.
My baby daughter, Noelle, and I have been living next door to Mack since the spring. I’m still a little wary about our relationship, since I haven’t always made good decisions when it comes to men. My baby’s father, David Rhodes, is testament to that. I’m so worried he might sue for custody.
In the meantime, the World War II letters I found are a wonderful distraction. Both Mack and I are trying to learn what happened to the soldier who wrote them and the woman he loved.
Come by sometime for a glass of iced tea and I’ll show you the letters. Plus I’ll tell you the latest about Grace and Olivia, my brother Linc and his wife, Lori (who tied the knot about 5 minutes after they met!), and all our other mutual friends. Oh, and maybe Mack can join us…

My Review: As with all books in the Cedar Cove series – I love this book! I wish I could live in a community like the one depicted in this series of books. With each book we get a glimpse into the lives of several of the occupants, BUT each book concentrates on one couple above the rest so you get familiar with each family living in Cedar Cove. This book concentrates on Mary Jo and Mack – a couple we were introduced to in a previous book – in fact he delivered her baby! They live side-by-side in a duplex at 1022 Evergreen Place. Their relationship goes through some ups and downs throughout this book. Another couple mentioned quite a bit in this book is Rachel and Bruce. I hope the next book concentrates on their unusual and somewhat difficult relationship. This series is a GREAT summer read (actually it’s a great read for any time of the year). The books are fast moving. The characters are interesting. The stories keep you engaged and wanting to read more. Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors. She writes great chick lit about women of all ages, so she reaches a large audience. This book is better read as part of a series. I’m not sure it could stand alone as well. Therefore I suggest you begin with 16 Lighthouse Road and go on from there.
This book is available the beginning of August 2010.
