I'm seeing a trend in these books that will probably make me stop reading after the next if it continues.
What really bothers me is Macomber's portrayal of all the female characters. It seems like every single female fights with herself over feelings for men and pushes men away, and they all ap...more

In this book, Grace has finally decided to divorce her husband, who just walked out of their lives a year ago. No one knows where her husband is, or why he just walked...more
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...more

When I was listening to the first book I had problems just listening so I both listened and read. This time the reading book is tied up at the digital library so I have just been listening. Since I already have a clear picture of the characters in my head I have been enjoying it. I'm glad to get caught up with the charact...more
As far as the other couples go, I am still curious which way their lives are going. Every one of them has...more
Justine--daughter of Grace's friend, Olivia Lockhart--impulsively got married.
Her daughter Kelly had a baby.
Her older daughter is seeing a new man but she won't tell her mother who.
There were plenty of babies to go around, I referred to this novel as the "baby boom in Cedar Cove" on several occasions: Justine & Seth, Maryellen & Jon, Eric & Shelley! Lots of Babies!! -- I truly felt bad for Zach & Rosie, and really wished they could have sought counselling, rather than divorce. I found it a t...more
“The way he held her close told her he’d been interested in her for some time. And the way she responded to his touch told him she found his work brilliant and beautiful, and that he intrigued her—as an artist and a man.” How can a cuddle possibly show all these things and how unromantic anyway - how he intrigued he as an artist! Come on! Some parts were a tad stilted, again the romance.
Macomber is the author of more than 100 novels, most recently the instant #...more
