This the second last instalment of an enjoyable and simple series is needing to come to an end (for me). I didn't love this one, the Peyton storyline (Bruce and Joelene) here was too weak for my liking, with characters doing things that were not too nice, even for Cedar Cove standards. Added to this is the way happenings are all wrapped up quite neatly, it is not realistic in most cases. Though to be fair, this series is a wholesome one, and perhaps I'm tiring of this. I will still happily read ...more
Es una novela coral de personajes adultos que lo que tienen en común es vivir o trabajar en el mismo pueblo, Cedar Cove, cuyos problemas de relación son variados y normales, los que se van solucionando más o menos desde el comienzo de la lectura hasta el final. No ha estado mal pero es como si me hubiera encontrado con la segunda o tercera temporada de una serie, con muchas historias anteriores de todos los vecinos que yo desconozco, pero que aún así ves porque te engancha saber qué pasará con e ...more
So, I Read This Book Today
OK. We have a pregnant, newly wed, apparently really sweet woman, Rachel, with a spiteful, vicious, spoiled-rotten monster of a stepdaughter, and a spineless, whining, stalking, bullying husband. The husband wrings his hands because his wife walks away after having enough of being tormented by the stepdaughter until she is stressed out, sick, and close to losing her baby from dealing with the monster stepdaughter and the useless, self centered whiny excuse for a man she is married to who won't s ...more

After I finished this book, I had planned to rate it a three with the caveat about the Bruce Rachel storyline. But in reality, I can't rate any book that has such an awful hero at the heart of the story. He was whiney, selfish and totally wimpy. His daughter is ruining his life and drove off his wife and all he does is whine, stalk the ex and then get mad at the ex when she won't do what he wants.

It disturbs me that Macomber thinks calling every hair salon in town to find his ex that blocked his

When the list of characters in the book is 4 pages long, it should tell you something.
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

1105 Yakima Street is the 11th novel in the popular Cedar Cove series by Debbie Macomber. 1105 Yakima Street is the address of Bruce, Rachel and Jolene Peyton, but after months of enduring nastiness from her jealous 13-year-old stepdaughter, Rachel finally walks out on Bruce and Jolene for the good of her own health and that of her baby. A friend from Rachel’s past comes to the rescue with accommodation and support. Rachel’s stance finally goads a reticent Bruce into finally acting to bring his ...more

At the risk of upsetting die-hard Debbie Macomber fans, this was the least favorite of her books that I've read. I found myself rolling my eyes most of the time. Why do these characters play such games? Grace, refusing to fall in-love with a puppy. I can't even remember the characters names anymore, and I just finished the book-- the whiny pregnant girl who ditched the hunky doctor (in the last book). Will and Miranda... good Lord, that was a boring and predictable thing waiting to happen. Worst ...more

Having followed the people of Cedar Cove through the series, it's like spending time with old friends. As many of the families struggle with so many of the same issues we too face in our own lives, it's comforting to know we are not alone.

Notes: I read the ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this book.

Bruce and Rachel Peyton are facing the marital problems that come from having a child by a previous marriage. Rachel is pregnant and the stress is starting to have an effect on her unborn child. When pleas to her husband that they attend counseling as a family failed, she left Bruce. Jolene (Bruce's daughter and Rachel' stepdaughter), it seems, has turned into a wicked stepdaughter. What happened?

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

1105 Yakima Street is the 11th book of the Cedar Cove series set in the fictitious small town Cedar Cove on Puget Sound in contemporary Washington.

Bruce and Rachel's marriage is foundering, even with the new baby coming, due to Jolene's jealous hostility. Rachel moves out; doesn't say where; gets a new job, out of her usual profession; has a roommate sure to upset Bruce. It takes a crisis to get the family back together.

Recommends it for: Everyone that enjoys books in a series about everyday life of women and families.
Recommended to Judy by: Have read many of her books.
It is my understanding this is the last book in the "Blossom Street" series. We now have closure about the lives of Oliva Lockhart Griffin, her mother, Charlotte, Will Jefferson, Rachel Peyton and the rest of the gang. As we wondered if Rachel would get back with her husband and if her step-daughter Jolene would accept her and their soon to arrive child, we find out! Since this book is about everyday life in the lives of many people, there are happy endings, and in some situations a bit sad. Thi ...more

I have enjoyed each visit to Cedar Cove and will be very sad when these excursions end.

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,

This is the 11th book in this series, I am very sad to see this series end - I feel like once a year I go on vacation to Cedar Cove and check in on everyone who lives there. It will be stange letting 'this family' go.

This is the story of Bruce, his daughter Jolene and her step mom Rachel. Jolene and Rachel had a wonderful friendship (see previous books) but Rachel and Bruce fall in love and quickly get married. This does not sit well with Jolene as she to learn to share both her dad and her fri

Oh no the Cedar Cove series is coming to an end. I'll miss my friends there, after 12 books, I've really become involved in their lives. The 1225 Christmas Tree Lane is the final book in this series. So sad!
This visit was good, it is the story of Rachael, Bruce and Jolene, along with other much love characters from the previous books. Jolene, has become a terror when it comes to Rachael. Before she married Bruce, Rachael and Jolene were very close. Now! how badly Jolene needs parenting!

I think its time for Cedar Cove and I to break up. I was already annoyed by the repetitive writing style- seriously why do I need constant background on every character when I've already read the other books in the series and did I really need to be reminded that Olivia had a cancer and Jack had a heart attack 15 times in this book- okay that might be an exaggeration but I think you might get my point.

I only read this book because I wanted to see how Bruce and Rachel fixed the situation they we

This was a sweet little book about a bunch of people handling life problems. I didn't like how much the father let the bratty teenager get away with - he was pretty ineffective and I couldn't feel at all bad for him. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable book.

I'm so wanting more of these Cedar Cove books! I've got one left after this and it isn't enough! Love these characters!

Well, this installment is the address for Bruce and Jolene. I don't include Rachel because she moved out from the stress of being pregnant and being in such a negative environment that Jolene has made for her. This little brat never has anything nice to say, taunting Rachel even, telling her she should just leave and they don't need her there and they are better off without her.

Boy did this volume of the Cedar Cove series rub me the wrong way! If this was the first book in the series, I’d never pick up the next book, and I’d probably try to avoid the author in the future. However, since it’s the eleventh out of twelve books, I felt obligated to finish it and forget about it for the good of the series. Before I forget, I’ll explain why I hated it so much.

In the Cedar Cove novels, there are so many residents, it’s virtually impossible to check in with everybody in every

Sometimes you just want something fluffy to read and well, here we are. Only this wasn't exactly fluffy so much as a bunch of stories about pregnant women and the idiots they're in love with with a side order of 'you wish it was this easy to deal with potential Alzheimer's'. Yay? Eh. Having never read a Cedar Cove book before, it was probably not the best idea to start with nearly the last book in the series but sometimes there is no choice and you read what's on hand.

I made it to page 150 and gave up. This is book #11 in a series and you need to be involved in the whole 'town' to understand what is going on. It's a soap opera with 4 story lines going on at once, all equally weighted. I prefer a main story and maybe one other side story. I should have known when the preface has 3 pages of background info on the characters. I kept having to go back and forth to understand who was who and I still had questions. I didn't care about any of the 4 stories or a sing ...more

I love that Debbie Macomber writes about blended families and tackles real life issues. She depicted what many stepparents go through with a child. I can definitely relate to Rachel as a stepmom. I really wanted to smack some sense into Bruce since he was in denial about how his daughter acted towards Rachel and then allowed Jolene to become the mini wife. It definitely was a different Cedar Cove, but I am glad it showed some real life situations.
