3rd installment in the Cedar Cove series, comforting relationship saga set in a small town near Seattle in the present time. Familiar characters from earlier books return in strong roles, still working out relationships introduced in earlier books, plus a new family is introduced, in the midst of a serious conflict. The book explores how misunderstandings lead to conflicts and the end of relationships, and also how the love and support of friends and family can lead to new beginnings. Several main characters face personal crises and must re-evaluate their assumptions to move ahead with their lives. A feel-good read.
