Debbie Macomber s Cedar Cove Series Lighthouse RoadBook OneWhen Cecilia Randall and her naval officer husband Ian appear in Judge Olivia Lockhart s Cedar Cove family court they expect the good judge to grant the divorce they seek
My secret wish is to live in Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove if I can't live in Maeve Binchy's Dublin books and work at Quentin's as a hostess?
Addicted to this simple series
I stumbled upon this series by accident and went back to read the books in order from the very beginning. The author does a great job of drawing you into the town and the events. I liked the fact that it dealt with many women's issues and was tastefully written. My only complaint is every problem has a happy ending and everything is tied up in a neat bow.
I thought this series was good. But I enjoyed the Blossom street series better!
Book 1 starts with an introduction to Cedar Cove and the residents that will capture your heart. As the story progresses, you feel like you have become one of the neighbors and a friend. You will laugh, cry, wonder what will happen next and most of all anxiously await the next installment!
I've read all of the Cedar Cove Series that have been released (and I'm dying to see what happens in the next one) and I've enjoyed them all. Some I have read more than once. I feel like I know each of the characters. I enjoy reading about their lives.
I wish i could give more than 5stars. This series has always been one of my favorites. The connection between character and reader is wonderful. It makes you laugh, cry, and sometimes leaves you with suspense. I am always recommending it to people. The perfect soap opera for all ages.
I love this book series. I like how they list the different character relationships in the beginning of the book in case you are reading them out of order.
Love this series!! Highly recommended to all of my girlfriends!!
Easy reading about life experiences of differnt people in a small town interesting and like I said, easy reading.Just what I needed lately.
Loved the cedar cove books!
Borrowed from digital library really enjoyed reading the collection of six books
Fun, light reading!
The first part of this series was pretty predictable and undeniably written by someone who views the world through rose colored glasses wearing a habit. It was satisfying in a mundane sort of way, yet I wish I had never started it just because of where it led. I tend to be a bit anal about finishing a series once I start it. There were some portions of high drama and strife early in the series, however, as the series moved forward there was a definite change to holier than thou attitudes and rid [...]
Oh how I love Debbie Macomber! I started reading her books in 2005 when my sister found the first book of the Cedar Cove Series, 16 Lighthouse Road on the giveaway shelf in the waiting room of one of the offices where we work at a VA Hospital in TX. Let me say, it changed my life! I have read the entire series twice or three times and love it even more each time! The characters are real and believeable and their stories touched the very core of my heart. I met Debbie in Dallas at a book signing [...]
While I prefer a book with some literary value--a great description; a poetic line; a clever plot device--I also enjoy chick lit. This is my first time reading this author. This series is fun. Most women would become involved in the lives of the Cedar Cove ladies and their families and the community itself. In June 2013, Hallmark is launching a series based on these books. I think it will be popular. The main character is a judge and will be played by Audie McDowell. I like the fact that the lad [...]
I began reading this series in an effort to find something similar to Robyn Carr's series. I have read all of Carr's Virgin River, Grace Valley and Thunder Point. I thoroughly enjoyed them and even read them again a few years later. Cedar Cove is entertaining but not nearly as interesting. My main problem with these books is the characters. Most of them do the most outrageous things. Idiotic things like have sex with a local guy, then hope to keep it hidden, but have the baby anyway. These chara [...]
This book is very interesting and holds your attention. It is a chick book, so not sure if any men would be interested in reading this. It is very close to the Hallmark television series. I am a slow reader, so I have about three more chapters left to read. Debbie Macomber is a very good writer and I was impressed with her when I went to meet her at Mount Dora, Florida. The women writes faster then I can read. Just saying.
Debbie Macomber is a Port Orchard native, so naturally, I had to read her books after moving here. The Cedar Cove series is based on this quaint little town I now call home so it was fun to read and recognize locations and descriptions of life here. There are several characters, all interwoven, and each book is an enjoyable, light-hearted read. I recommend this series if you're looking for an easy romantic series.
This light hearted series begins to enchant and draw you into this tight community. Soon you are swept by their stories. I have my favorite couples; typically, the ones with conflict and clashing. After six books though, by the seventh, I grew tired of the endless soap opera, each tale grander than the next. I think everything could have been wrapped up by the sixths and I could have said the series as a whole is worth the time. Instead, try the first volume of books and be at rest.
The Cedar Cove Series Volume 1 - 6 is an easy yet fully satisfying read. Ms. Macomber has given her readers fully fleshed out characters. As the stories merged into each other, I became more involved with each story line and the intricate ways in which they became linked together. A great summer beach book. . .
I must admit that I get frustrated with the residents of Cedar Cove at times, but all in all they are delightful. I read this series to get ready for the new Hallmark Cedar Cove series. I now cannot wait to see the characters come to life on TV; however, I will always enjoy, just as much, reading about them. I am hooked!
Debbie Macomber has become one of my favorite fluff authors. If I want an engaging story with good characters, some life drama and a love story I can count on her books. This is a good series. I bought it on the Kindle as a series and kept reading one book after another for about two weeks this winter. It was fun and uplifting.
Read all day and all nightExcellent stories that flow together seamlessly. I bought the set on Kindle and literally couldn't put it down. Just usually have that problem with Debbie Macomber books I have read many of her books when they came out but somehow I missed this series. Looking forward to reading therest
204 Rosewood Lane was awsome. I love everything I have read of Debbie Macomber's books. She gives you details and keeps everything about love clean. I met her and she is a wonderful speaker. God blessed her.
I absolutely loved the whole series. Debbie Macomber is amazing at character development. By the end of the book, you truly feel like you know the characters and look forward to reading more about them :)
Wonderfully written!! I can't believe how real each character is, and how involved you become in the story! couldn't put down my kindle until I finished all 6 novels, and I can't wait to get started on volume 2!!
Pleasant reading. Stories a little repetitive because each book ties into the previous (and future) books, so the author feels the need to keep introducing the characters and their story lines to keep the continuity going.
I read all 12 of Debbie Macomber's books in the Cedar Cove series. (The library has them). They hold your interest and the characters in each book are tied together in the series. There is mystery, intrigue, romance and all of the makings of a good read.
I really enjoyed these six books - each book is another address in Cedar Cove and centers on who lives there but continues to bring all the other characters in to the storyry good and quick reads
