Welcome back to Cedar Cove :) The gang's all here with a couple new additions... decisions of the heart aren't easy, and there a few unexpected surprises in store, not all of them happy. A couple things leave more questions than answers and a couple break your heart for the characters involved.

It's hard to not spoil the storylines by talking through them... you want everyone to be happy and carefree but life isn't always that way. I continued to root for them, groaning at a couple things certain

Well this is the second book from the Cedar Cove series and I must say this is a great series of books. I love the way that you aren't just tied up with one heroine/hero. You have several (just in case you aren't thrilled with one of their lives, turn the page and there's a new story line).

Starting off in the beginning, the book pretty much starts off where 16 Lighthouse Road left off. You have most of the same characters as well to follow from the previous novel. I loved the stories and intera

This book reminds me of a reading soap opera. I read the first book, 16 Lighthouse Road and enjoyed it, but I wanted to know more about Grace and her family which lead me to read this novel. I had hoped that things would be cleared up about Dan and why he left, (view spoiler)

Several story lines were continued & begun throughout this novel which keeps me curious, but the stories were not interesting enough t

I've read the first book in this series and always like to see how things continue on for the characters. There were several storylines flowing at the same time and little reference to two main characters from the first book. But ultimately, I felt like maybe the author hadn't decided yet which way she wanted things to go and thus basically left every single character hanging.....why not just write a big TO BE VERY MUCH CONTINUED at the end. Aargh. Yes, I'll be reading the next book but I was ve ...more

MaryEllen Sherman has a one night stand with a guy who is obviously smitten with her, bit she has trust issues. And her mother, Grace

I didn't like this as much as the first book in the series. This has become pure drivel, soap opera, chick lit fodder. Apparently nothing goes on in the town that is worthwhile except for all the women trying to hook men and get knocked up. Even menopausal women like Olivia who is a judge with a law degree is whining about Jack the editor not calling her and honestly, it is just like a bunch of silly high school girls. Nothing of interest happens in the town. Olivia's daughter Justine marries a ...more

Wonderful Emotional read,its a keeper for me.This book showed up how relationships goes on rocky patch cause of insecurities,anger,bitterness,resentment,lack of faith,lack of acknowlegment,appreciation and communication and finally it breaks

Eric-Shelly and Justine-Seth manage to get their HEA,really did not want divorce to happen between Zach-Rosie but it happened eager to see how they realise their mistakes and accept their faults in break up of their marriage

Olivia i hope she does'nt goes back

I picked up this book after reading The Shop on Blossom Street, to see if I just really liked the author or just that series. It really wasn't my type of book. While there were somewhat interesting plots, I had a really hard time keeping track of the characters and their involvement in the stories. Most of the stories reminded me of Lifetime movies and soap operas. I can handle that type of story if there's something else keeping me involved, but this didn't really have that for me. I don't plan ...more

Residents of the close-knit community of Cedar Cove, Washington, have always assumed that Grace Sherman, the town librarian, is as demure as she appears - but they couldn't be more wrong. Underneath Grace's demure exterior, is a spine of steel that quickly surfaces when she must face the strange and sudden disappearance of her husband, Dan.

So, Cedar Cove bands together around one of its own, and Grace's family and friends bring great comfort to her during such a difficult time. But Grace is rem

Picking up several of the loose threads left at the end of "16 Lighthouse Road", "204 Rosewood Lane" is the second book in Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series. The book focuses mostly on Grace Sherman as she copes with the disappearance of her husband Dan and finally learns what happened to him. The book also deals with Grace's best friend, Olivia, and her ongoing romance with newspaperman Jack Griffin, plus some surprising news from her ex-husband, Stan, and distressing news about her mother, C ...more

In the next installment of the Cedar Cove series, we are introduced to Rosie and Zach Cox. Zach is extremely frustrated that Rosie spends more time volunteering and barely has time to cook a meal. Dinners at their house are usually microwaved or take-out. Marital stress takes it toll and the couple decides to separate.

Meanwhile, Grace Sherman has divorced her husband, who disappeared in 16 Lighthouse Road. She’s convinced he left her and her daughters for another woman, so she decides it’s time

This is the second installment of the Cedar Cove series and I felt like I came back home when I started reading this book. We get further indepth look at the lives of Grace, her daughter Maryellen and the Cox family. We hear more about Olivia and her family in this book including a health scare with Charlotte that actually worried me even. I didn’t want to see anything happen to this spunky older woman. I feel a kinship with these townspeople. I want to know what is happening in their lives.

After enjoying the first book in the Cedar Cove series, I expected to like this one too. How disappointing.

The book picks up where the first leaves off, with the introduction of a couple of new faces. Unfortunately the writing is so bad it is embarrassing and frustrating. The book has very little by way of a plot, and many of the characters are shallow and empty, with most incredibly one-dimensional. The women are so simpering and weak, and any problems they have are "magically" cured by finding

The continuation of the soap opera. And just like the last one... it's to be continued for one of the storylines in the book. Some characters from the first book are featured in this book, some disappear off the radar. Our cast of characters is slowly changing as more are introduced. I hated the Cox family in this book and unfortunately, they are to be featured in the next book. Going to have to push my way through that one to get to the next. This series is definetly not up to the standards I a ...more

his book takes off where book 1 left off and while there are many story lines, the book focuses on on Grace Sherman. After her husband deserts her after 35 years of marriage, Grace divorces him although she is not sure what happened to him. At the same time, she meets an attractive divorcee who is interested in dating her.

Many story lines from the previous book are expanded such as Judge Lockhart's love life and her daughter Justine's new marriage. New characters are introduced, such as Zach an

204 Rosewood Lane proved to be like other Macomber books I have read....I couldn't put it down. While one mystery is resolved, another is presented. Macomber does an excellent job of dealing with real life issues....divorce, death, parenting, romance, illness....just to name a few. There were less "pollyanna" story lines in this book than 16 Lighthouse Road. The drama in Mary Ellen's life was well woven into the story. Again more kudos to Judge Lockhart for her innovative thinking.

This is the second book book of the Cedar Cove series that I've read (yes, I'm reading them in order). I have to say that I like the Blossom Street series a whole lot better. This one is more like a soap opera & the women have less depth and aren't as smart and the interplay of women's friendship isn't as strong here. Plus, I'm not all that fond of Olivia- she's awfully blind to human interactions around her for a judge (& I know wherefrom I speak!). It's irritating. But I'll try the nex ...more

I enjoyed this but it isn't something I'd instantly throw into favourite books so dropped to 4 stars purely on that basis, I felt a little overwhelmed by the number of characters this book followed I've had quite a large gap between books one and two of this series but I don't remember book one having so much to follow. I think it was due the the large number of separate storylines that I felt a bit to and fro throughout the book, however that said it was still pleasant to read and I will be con ...more

This is the 2nd book in the Cedar Cove series If you are just starting the series, it's easy to tell the order of the books. Each title is an address, & the first number tells you which book it is. The first book is 16 Lighthouse Road, & this book is 204 Rosewood Lane. So you can see they start with the numbers 1 & 2. The title of the next book will start with a 3, and so on.
I loved this book even more than the first book. I am familiar with almost all the characters & couldn't w

This is the first book i have read by this author and i really liked it. I liked the different families and characters and how their stories intertwined. Grace was my favourite character. It was very easy to get into and only took me a couple of days to read it as the story flowed so well and kept me reading quite quickly.
I will definitely read the rest of the series!

This was my first book by Debbie Macomber and I got it from a book sale unknowning it was the 2nd book in the Cedar Cove series. I really liked the book and I now want to not only get book 1 of the series but I want to read the rest of the series because at the end of this book, it left me wanting to know more of what was going to happen. The nice thing about reading this one first unknowning it was the 2nd in the series is that I was not lost from the get go unlike other book series where you w ...more

This second book in the Cedar Cove had a little bit of everything. It focused more on Grace than Olivia this time although all the main characters appeared. This book had its share of main events. It had:
Marriages
Births
Divorces
Deaths
I am loving this series and feel like I am getting to know the nice people of Cedar Cove.
Kim
This is a cute series but i recommend you read the books close together as the books rely heavily upon the last one. The characters are great and very loveable. Makes you feel like you live there in cedar cove with them. A great light read with some mystery and romance intermingled together for a delightful entertaining read.

I am keeping pace with the Cedar Cove series as it is being depicted on the Hallmark channel. Debbie Macomber has a special talent for creating interesting characters that make you feel like their neighbors. Reading her books is always a joy.

Grace - If you've been to Cedar Cove before we've probably met. You can usually find me either at home or at the public library, where I work. I've lived in this town all my life and raised two daughters here. But my husband and I - well, about six months ago, he disappeared. Just…disappeared. Where's Dan? Why did he go? Who's he with? Will I ever find out?

My hometown, my family and friends, bring me comfort during this difficult t

204 Rosewood Lane is the second book in the Cedar Cove series. I enjoyed this book even though it gets a little confusing with all of the characters. I liked each story but one of them made me cry.

To enjoy the series, you need to start with the first one. I didn't know they were in order until I had read several out of order. The first number in the address tells the order.
