Cedar Cove, Washington

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 w...more

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...more

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...more

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:

Grace
Corrie
Mary Ellen
Mary Jo
Gloria

Cecilia
Rachel
(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...more

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...more

This was my second book in the cedar cove series, having picked up Cedar Cove Christmas at the library last week. When I looked into reading more books in the series I would of NEVER realized the following / groups/ festivals/clubs this series has.

As I am not an expert on the Cedar Cove Series or the author , Debbie Macomber for that matter , I am an avid romance reader.

I really like the authors style ,the way in which she weaves her stories around the town members and families creating storie...more

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...more

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

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!

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.
Deborah Morgan
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.
Lynne
I wanted to tell these people to grow up. These people lives moving around each other was actually boring. Nothing new.
Maureen Mullis
Great book. The characters feel so real. I'd love to meet Olivia and Grace at the Pot Belly Deli and have lunch and a long chat!
Tracy
Another hit from Debbie Macomber!! So nice to revisit old favorites and meet new ones!! Can't wait for the next one!!
Sara
This one actually ends on a sad and depressing cliffhanger. I am still in shock!
Phyllis
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.
Then there were the situations of the ch...more

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...more

Another great book in the Cedar Cove series by Macomber. There are so many characters, but she juggles and intertwines them beautifully. Characters that were focused on earlier in the series are still around and you get to see how their lives and romances are progressing- and it's like revisiting old friends. New people slowly take center stage, and it's done so effortlessly by Macomber. I felt Rachel's frustration with Jolene and Gloria's stubbornness, along with Teri's and Christie's joy. The...more

I have a few things to say about this book (mostly about Jolene).

Rachel Peyton is in the awkward position of being pregnant while dealing with a jealous thirteen year old stepdaughter. Reading their chapters kind of felt reading a modern version of Cinderella except the stepdaughter is the evil one. I have been in the same situation Jolene is in and also around the same age but I never would have thought to behave in the way Jolene did toward Rachel. It was all about Jolene and what she wanted...more

In this charming tenth book in the Cedar Cove series, we meet several residents of the small Washington town, but the central focus is on the residents of a duplex at "1022 Evergreen Place (Cedar Cove)." Mack McAfee resides in one-half of the duplex, while Mary Jo and her baby Noelle live in the other half. Mack is in love with Mary Jo, but they face obstacles, one of which is Noelle's father.

However, they are drawn together by their mutual friendship, attraction, and their quest to discover the...more

In her latest installment of the Cedar Cove series, Macomber welcomes the reader back with her usual warm chatty style and familiar characters. Marriage—existing and intended—plays a large role in this particular story line.

Mary Jo Wyse and her baby daughter Noelle are tenants of Mack MacAfee on Evergreen Place. The two adults are good friends, and show every sign of moving into a meaningful romantic relationship. Mack adores the baby and her mother but issues of trust and openness on both sides...more

Debbie Macomber continues with her fluid narrative of Cedar Cove. I found 1022 Evergreen Place a nice rendition of life as we know it. Mary Jo Wyse is a single mother with her little girl Noelle. She is slowly falling in love with Mack McAfee, the EMT who delivered Noelle on Christmas Day. David Rhodes, the baby's father, threatens to sue for custody of Noelle. Mary Jo is distrustful of those who are not absolutely truthful with her. Mack encouraged Mary Jo to move into the other side of his dup...more
