Dear reader, 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, because 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.

While I don't like this series as well as I do the Blossom Street series, I have read all of it and enjoyed it. But this book was a disappointment. It has no continuity (very choppy) and too many characters. It really pulled me out of the story -- and got to be irritating -- that every time a character appeared, the story stops, and the author reviews who they are and what has happened to them in the last nine books. And if they make another appearance later in the book, it happens again. Additi ...more

Shallow and trite stories about physcotic, immature women and the nuerotic men who have the hots for them. Old worn out themes of women manipulating men by sex, pregnancy, babies, temper tantrums, lies and childish behavior. The men can be just as bad with the lies they are telling. No one has an adult relationship where they confide in their partner and are straight with them. Some of these women are just mentally ill.
Having babies and then getting married doesn't make everything all wonderful

I've read all of this series in order and here's what we've learned about Cedar Cove residents:

1. Everyone is aware that birth control exists. No one is apparently aware that you have to actually use it. A good number of women in town have unplanned pregnancies:

Mary Ellen
Mary Jo

(although these two got pregnant while married, both had explicitly stated or their husbands had that they were not intending for that to be the case).

2. If you get pregnant and you aren't ma

Time to re-visit Cedar Cove and catch up with all our old friends and some of our newer friends! I was a bit disappointed in the last couple of Cedar Cove books, but this one turned it all around for me. It was like a welcome home for me.

This time around the story focuses on Mary Jo Wyse and Mack McAfee. They both love each other, but have been skirting around telling each other and keeping each other at arm's length. They are brought together through a series of letters Mary Jo finds

These books are starting to be really painful to read, so this may be the last in the series I venture into. Story lines are starting to be recycled, and if one more person gets married in less than 6 months, I will throw up. You were good for awhile, Cedar Cove, but all good things must come to an end.

This is the tenth installment in Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series. Having read the previous nine, I naturally had to read this one to see what was happening with all of the characters I've come to "know."

The main focus of this story is on Mary Jo Wyse and Mack McAfee. If you missed A Cedar Cove Christmas, you won't know the backstory behind these two. However, as she does in every installment, Debbie gives you a bit of history about each character so if you missed a book (or just don't rememb

1022 Evergeen Place is the tenth full-length novel in the Cedar Cove series by popular US author, Debbie Macomber. Fans of the series will be pleased to once again join this delightful small town community in Washington State. The address is the duplex belonging to Mack McAfee, where Mary Jo Wyse also lives. Mack has been in love with Mary Jo ever since they met at baby Noelle’s birth, but Mary Jo is wary of involvement since David Rhodes abandoned her to her fate. Mack learns that lying is not ...more

This is one of my all time favorite series, ever! This is the first book of the series I listened to on audio and it was fun to listen to, although I will most likely be reading the rest of them on my Kindle. I think I prefer to read these over listening to them.

Debbie Macomber is one of my all time favorite authors. Before I turned into a cozy mystery junkie, I was strictly a romance reader and Macomber was always one of my top favorites. This book features two of my favorite characters – Mary

Mack McAfee lives at 1022 Evergreen Place. It is a duplex and he has rented the other side to his friend and hopefully to be more, Mary Jo Wyse and her daughter Noelle. If you remember Mack helped deliver little Noelle on Christmas eve at the Harding ranch. The two of them have their difficulties and problems in finding if their relationship will blossom and they will become one. David Rhodes, the father of Noelle, continues to be an eyesore around Cedar Cove and does what he can to rile Mary Jo ...more

I can't tell whether I'm just losing patience 10 books (and two novellas) into this series, but this was THE WORST. Why did it take 3 books to have two characters get married who we knew had ended up together in book one of three? Why is there a totally sexist insistence that one character is evil because he "lets a woman pay his bills/take care of him/etc etc etc"? Why do characters get married with seemingly no motivation at all? Ridiculous. I am going to read the last two books in the series, ...more

Debbie Macomber has done it again. We are returning back to Cedar Cove where we find Mary Jo and Mack make a discovery in her home.

As they are reading these letters they want to know more about this couple and where are they now. In the meantime Mary Jo is still dealing with David the father of her baby.

While this installment is not my favorite in the Cedar Cove Series, I did enjoy 1022 Evergreen Place. It is becoming clear that Debbie Macomber wants to end this delightful series, because she packs many details and people in this installment, trying to tie up many loose ends. Faith and Troy, Will and Shirley to name a few. Olivia is getting better. Oh will I miss Cedar Cove! I've read The Inn at Rose Harbor but I love catching up with these characters in this series!

Uh, not great. None of these books are great by any stretch, but this one was especially bad for two reasons. One, it focused on previously auxiliary characters who are not interesting, confusing to recall, oddly identical except for their names, and have only tenuous connections to the original main characters. Second, the plot lines are thin at best, with people being either bad or good and all exhibit the depth of a paper towel. And yet, here I am reading the book from cover to cover. I am re ...more

Ten years I have been reading these series. The tenth one, just like the other nine, picks up where the last left off, and stops leaving you regretting you have to wait until next September to read the next.

This is part of the Cedar Cove series. A lot of the characters from previous Cedar Cove books are in this book, but not all front in center. Mack MacAfee and Mary Jo Wyse, seem to be the main focus. Their continuing love story and the love story of some letters from a WWII soldier Mary Jo had found under the floor in her closet. Rachel, Bruce and Jolene are back and are having problems. In fact they are the cliff hanger at the end of the book. Both Shirley and Tanni Bliss have love problems and ...more

Ever sweet, everything turns out all right in the end -- a typical Debbie Macomber read. Bruce has been burying his head in the sand with his daughter Jolene's lack of acceptance for her new stepmother Rachel. Rachel has a baby on the way and reaches her limit for taking abuse from Jolene. Mack and Mary Jo solve a mystery of the WW2 letters that were hidden in the floor, and on the way, find their way to getting married to each other. Gloria is pregnant by Chad and doesn't want to tell him, but ...more

I like how this series has progressed, we still learn about old beloved characters and get to meet more of the Cedar Cove residents. Being a stepmom, I can really relate to Rachel's storyline. I have been extremely lucky and my husband's kids have found a place for me in their hearts, but it wasn't always easy on my end dealing with his parenting habits and feeling left out of situations dealing with kids. I really feel for Rachel in this book and want to yell at Bruce to open his eyes and take ...more

I've read this series in order (as I like to do) and have gotten to know and like most of the folks in Cedar Cove... except Will and Jolene. Will is such an arrogant, self-centered creep, I don't know how anyone continues to talk to him. And Jolene has become such a snotty, needy brat. I don't know why Bruce turns a blind eye to all the nastiness she dumps on Rachel.

I really enjoyed the Mack/Mary Jo storyline, including the mysterious, old love letters. I'm ready to see what the next book brings
I didn’t like this 10th installment of the Cedar Cove Series as much as books 1-9 in the series. The storylines were getting repetitive. Examples are marriages in less than 6 months of meeting one another. The most ridiculous one was Lync and Lori Bellamy. They got married within a few weeks of meeting one another.
Another thing that bothered me was the unplanned pregnancies of 7 of the characters, 5 of which were out of wedlock. It gets old after a while.

I'm suprised this is the first Cedar Cove series book I have read, but I have a feeling that I may have pre 2006 where i don't have records, I'll have to go through the listing and see what seems familiar.

Each year (for ten years) Macomber revisits Cedar Cove and the community she has built. The characters in all of the books entertwine in a morass of family, relationships and friendships and each year she focuses on the emotional connections of primarily one couple. In the spirit of true commun
