Back Cover Blurb:
If you've been to Cedar Cove, we've probably met. You can usually find me at home or the public library. I've lived here all my life and raised two daughters here.
But my husband and I--well, about six months ago, he 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. I'm continually reminded that life goes on. For instance, everyone's discussing weddings and babies. Justine--daughter of my friend, Olivia Lockhart--impulsively got married. My daughter Kelly had a baby. Unfortunately, she refuses to accept that Dan might not return to see his grandchild. My older daughter is more realistic. I think she's seeing a new man but she won't tell me who.
Then there's Jack, who's pursuing a romance with Olivia, and his son, Eric, and Eric's girlfriend (I think she's pregnant), and Zach and Rosie Cox, whose marriage is on the skids and... Well, just come over and we'll talk
I loved the number of intertwining stories in Cedar Cove. I felt like I was getting to know the whole town without feeling overwhelmed or rushed. Macomber has reached the perfect balance here. Characters of all ages make up the cast of this novel. Some are just starting life, some are stepping out on their own, and others have more than a little life experience under their belts. It is the perfect melding of characters to bring Cedar Cove to life.
Macomber has penned a novel that will be loved by all fans of small town romances. It was an unforgettable story that I was unable to put down.
P.S. Before I’m done, I have to comment on the back cover blurb. It’s the ultimate invitation to come to Cedar Cove. Macomber definitely delivers on her invitation inside the pages of this novel.
