Dear Reader, You've probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel's pregnant, and she says she can't handle the stress in our household anymore. My thirteen-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it's my fault. As a widower I spoiled her--

Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says "that's" not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But "that's

After I finished this book, I had planned to rate it a three with the caveat about the Bruce Rachel storyline. But in reality, I can't rate any book that has such an awful hero at the heart of the story. He was whiney, selfish and totally wimpy. His daughter is ruining his life and drove off his wife and all he does is whine, stalk the ex and then get mad at the ex when she won't do what he wants.

It disturbs me that Macomber thinks calling every hair salon in town to find his ex that blocked his
So, I Read This Book Today
OK. We have a pregnant, newly wed, apparently really sweet woman, Rachel, with a spiteful, vicious, spoiled-rotten monster of a stepdaughter, and a spineless, whining, stalking, bullying husband. The husband wrings his hands because his wife walks away after having enough of being tormented by the stepdaughter until she is stressed out, sick, and close to losing her baby from dealing with the monster stepdaughter and the useless, self centered whiny excuse for a man she is married to who won't s ...more

When the list of characters in the book is 4 pages long, it should tell you something.
This book read like 6 short stories all juxtaposed together. The short amount of time spent on each couple, family, or issue, was so brief (maybe 4 or 5 chapters total) that there was no way the writer could go into any depth. All the drama, the development of the characters, it was all surface-level. Flat and honestly, a little disappointing.
By the time I got interested in a couple, the chapter would end and

1105 Yakima Street is the 11th novel in the popular Cedar Cove series by Debbie Macomber. 1105 Yakima Street is the address of Bruce, Rachel and Jolene Peyton, but after months of enduring nastiness from her jealous 13-year-old stepdaughter, Rachel finally walks out on Bruce and Jolene for the good of her own health and that of her baby. A friend from Rachel’s past comes to the rescue with accommodation and support. Rachel’s stance finally goads a reticent Bruce into finally acting to bring his ...more

Having followed the people of Cedar Cove through the series, it's like spending time with old friends. As many of the families struggle with so many of the same issues we too face in our own lives, it's comforting to know we are not alone.

Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series is one of my all-time favorites. I enjoy going back to visit all those beloved citizens each year as a new book is released. And I was saddened to hear that the series is ending come this October when 1225 Christmas Tree Lane is released.

When I picked up this book, I was excited that Rachel and Bruce's story was going to be told. They've been secondary characters for years and we've watched their relationship unfold. An
This was a wonderful book my only problem was there were too many characters and things happening around,i wanted to read in more detail how each relationships pregress but with so many characters and their story only limited time time was allowed which somewhat disappointed me

I have always loved Debbie Macomber. She has the ability to create heart warming and fun novels. One of my favorite books is 16 Lighthouse Road, book 1 in the Cedar Cove series.I will be honest and say that I haven't read all 11 books in this series, but the ones that I have read.....WOW! I always feel at home.

With 1105 Yakima Street, we are taken back into the lives of Rachel and Bruce and Jolene, who are introduced in previous Cedar Cove novels. While this one focuses on Rachel, Bruce and Jol

This is the 11th book in this series, I am very sad to see this series end - I feel like once a year I go on vacation to Cedar Cove and check in on everyone who lives there. It will be stange letting 'this family' go.

This is the story of Bruce, his daughter Jolene and her step mom Rachel. Jolene and Rachel had a wonderful friendship (see previous books) but Rachel and Bruce fall in love and quickly get married. This does not sit well with Jolene as she to learn to share both her dad and her fri

At the risk of upsetting die-hard Debbie Macomber fans, this was the least favorite of her books that I've read. I found myself rolling my eyes most of the time. Why do these characters play such games? Grace, refusing to fall in-love with a puppy. I can't even remember the characters names anymore, and I just finished the book-- the whiny pregnant girl who ditched the hunky doctor (in the last book). Will and Miranda... good Lord, that was a boring and predictable thing waiting to happen. Worst ...more

Bruce and his daughter Jolene live on Yakima Street and they are having a huge problem. Rachel, Bruce’s pregnant wife, has decided to move out. She worries about her health and the baby and decides the hostility she is receiving from her step-daughter isn’t worth the risk. Bruce does everything he can to convince her to come back, except address the problem of Jolene. She is adamant that they do not need Rachel, and tries to prove it multiple times. Whenever Bruce decides to try to see Rachel, s ...more

Notes: I read the ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this book.

Bruce and Rachel Peyton are facing the marital problems that come from having a child by a previous marriage. Rachel is pregnant and the stress is starting to have an effect on her unborn child. When pleas to her husband that they attend counseling as a family failed, she left Bruce. Jolene (Bruce's daughter and Rachel' stepdaughter), it seems, has turned into a wicked stepdaughter. What happened?

Linc Wyse’s business is starting to fail.

Recommends it for: Everyone that enjoys books in a series about everyday life of women and families.

It is my understanding this is the last book in the "Blossom Street" series. We now have closure about the lives of Oliva Lockhart Griffin, her mother, Charlotte, Will Jefferson, Rachel Peyton and the rest of the gang. As we wondered if Rachel would get back with her husband and if her step-daughter Jolene would accept her and their soon to arrive child, we find out! Since this book is about everyday life in the lives of many people, there are happy endings, and in some situations a bit sad. Thi ...more

I think its time for Cedar Cove and I to break up. I was already annoyed by the repetitive writing style- seriously why do I need constant background on every character when I've already read the other books in the series and did I really need to be reminded that Olivia had a cancer and Jack had a heart attack 15 times in this book- okay that might be an exaggeration but I think you might get my point.

I only read this book because I wanted to see how Bruce and Rachel fixed the situation they we

Oh no the Cedar Cove series is coming to an end. I'll miss my friends there, after 12 books, I've really become involved in their lives. The 1225 Christmas Tree Lane is the final book in this series. So sad!
This visit was good, it is the story of Rachael, Bruce and Jolene, along with other much love characters from the previous books. Jolene, has become a terror when it comes to Rachael. Before she married Bruce, Rachael and Jolene were very close. Now! how badly Jolene needs parenting!

1105 Yakima Street (Cedar Cove, #11) By Debbie Macomber I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. I think the situation between Bruce, Rachel and Jolene had me pretty furious. I think another reader hit it on the head by describing Bruce as 'wimpy'. What man would not see how his daughter was treating his new wife, let alone let the situation get so bad that his wife feels the need to move out and not tell him where she is living? And she is pregnant with is child! Jolene and her brat ...more

This was great! At first I wasn't too excited when I saw the amount of colours, and I was a bit confused because I couldn't keep up with their stories. But of course, I didn't read any of the other books in the series, and I kind of regret it now :) I'm curious about what happened to some of the characters before they arrived here. The story was a bit scattered, since there are so many characters, and it was confusing in the sense that I wasn't sure how they relate to each other.

The situation with Jolene was ridiculous. RIDICULOUS!! Particularly that scene when Bruce is at the salon with Rachel. Holy hell, if any child of mine acted like that toward my spouse, they would be dead and I'd be in jail. It is just so beyond unacceptable. And then for Bruce to be all "Oh, please come home..." Seriously jerk, seriously?? Why, so I can continue to be abused at the hands of your daughter while you stand back with your thumbs in your ears acting like it will all just work out? An ...more
I'm having a reading Staycation this week and enjoying whipping thru this series. As I was reading about the puppy, Beau and Grace Harding, I thought it was a familiar story. Then Beth and Christmas Tree Lane popped into the story. Now that I've finished this book and dug the next one out of the box my friend loaned to me, I look at the cover and know for sure. The next one, 1225 Christmas Tree Lane is the one I read 3 or 4 years ago on the beach in Siesta Key, FL on vacation. I think it was may ...more

Another Cedar book I'd yet to read, although I'd read the one after. This one kept me reading and I finished it in a few hours.
Sadly I have to say his was my least favourite of the series so far and with only one book left to revisit everyone's stories and tie up loose ends which I'm quite looking forward to I'm expecting it will mean the statement will hold over the 12 book series :(
I think my main dislike of this book was Rachel and Bruce's story I believe (like many other reviewers) that the teenage rebellion issues should have been sorted much quicker though I can understand that from an authors point of view that w

Are you a fan of Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove books ? I personally have only read a handful of her books and this was the first in the Cedar Cove Series. My personal favourite series of her's has been The Blossom Street Series. My mum and best friend Deb are big Debbie Macomber fans and have read and devoured her books. They tend to rave on about them, so I thought when 1105 Yakima Street came up for review on Netgalley, I'd give it a go .
