1105 Yakima Street (Cedar Cove #11)
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 thirteenyearold 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 not tru...more
It disturbs me that Macomber thinks calling every hair salon in town to find his ex that blocked his...more
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...more

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...more

will be the last book in the Cedar Cove Series coming out
the end of September.
I have really enjoyed the Cedar Cove series and sure
will miss them......
I have read all of Debbie Macomber's book & have loved them all.
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...more

how supid and naive can one guy be? Jolene was a real brat. I kept waiting for bruce to discipline her. I was happy for shirley and had to rethink who I wanted Will to end up wth in a relationship.Bruce was trying too hard to be Jolne's friend and not her dad. I was not surprised with who Rachel decided to move in with. She should have not endured all the prob...more
What Debbie does so well is that while she features a different address/family in each story she realizes that the entire community of Cedar Cove is connected to each other through family and friendships. In each edition we get a peek at most of the characters so we always stay connected with our favorites. She puts us right there in Cedar Cove, whether we are sitting in the library, visiting the art gallery,...more
