Simple, enjoyable, interesting
I watched the series on Hallmark but listening to the book, seemed to help me get closer to the characters.
I would definitely recommend this whole series! Debbie whisks you away to a coastal town where if you are looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right you will most possibly meet them here. I love how you feel like you know each character as your own neighbors and friends. If only there were really towns like this where everyone for the most part shows kindness what a great world this would be!
I liked that each character is described so well that you can actually picture them in your head. You really feel like you know them as friends not just characters in a book. Listening to the story really helps to visualize these characters more so than just reading words on a page.
She is such a great character reader, she really gives each character a distinct and different voice and is so consistent that you think there has to be more than one reader.
I found myself looking forward each evening to read about what everyone is doing. I gasp when things surprise me and actually teared up when the characters found lost love ones or if someone you feel you know passed away.
I recommend not only the Cedar cove series but her other series as well. You will be swept away into all the stories!
Sandra Burr does a pretty good job with very little. The characters are self-absorbed and mostly one-dimensional - especially the men. There is no appreciable plot that I can detect and what little content there is to this story unfolds with painful slowness. I'm giving this one back to Audible half finished. I can't risk listening to it while driving for fear I'll nod off.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
I got this book on a Daily Deal promotion for under $5. I would not have purchased it at full price or use a credit, as I like my books a bit more racy with more spice and 'bedroom' action.
That being said, this is a NICE, SWEET romance book, not raunchy or descriptive in the intimate scenes-leaving you to decide how to interpret. A lot of romance, several stories intertwined within the one book. The characters include a judge, her 'helpful' elderly mother, a couple young couples, a disappearing husband, etc. It is funny, feel good and the book does take on some heavy material, characters deal with the death of an infant, another with a miscarriage.
I look forward to reading more in the series-though I hope to get them on sale.
Dear Listener, You don't know me yet, but in a few hours that's going to change. You see, I'm inviting you to my home and my town of Cedar Cove, because I want you to meet my family, friends, and neighbors. Come and hear their stories - maybe even their secrets! I have to admit that my own secrets are pretty open. My marriage failed some years ago, and I have a rather...difficult relationship with my daughter, Justine. Then there's my mother, Charlotte, who has plenty of opinions and is always willing to share them. Here's an example: I'm a family court judge, and she likes to drop in on my courtroom. Recently, I was hearing a divorce petition. In Charlotte's view, young Cecilia and Ian Randall hadn't tried hard enough to make their marriage work - and I agreed. So I rendered my judgement: Divorce Denied. Well, you wouldn't believe the reaction! Thanks to an article by Jack Griffin, the editor of our local paper (and a man I wouldn't mind seeing more of!), everyone's talking. Cedar Cove - people love it and sometimes they leave it, but they never forget it! See you soon...Olivia Lockhart, 16 Lighthouse Road, Cedar Cove, Washington
I enjoyed Charlotte-the elderly mother of the judge. She is clever and funny without meaning to be. She stumbles on to her own mystery and is determined to figure it out.
I felt the narrator was above average, though she did sound more believable with the older characters.
NOTE: No graphic content nor cursing. A nice, contemporary romance.
This book is a mix of multiple dysfunctional relationships of a group of people and how their lives cross each other. It is definitely different trying to keep up with the multiple relationships and all of the problems but the majority of them are resolved in the end.
I rolled my eyes a lot and even shed a few tears. All in all it's a good read but you have to be open to the multiple story lines simultaneously being told. There were a few times I wasn't sure I'd make it though but I hung in there and will say it was worth the read.
I have to say she did a good job getting all of the relationships to progress together.
Ideal listening for a winter afternoon in front of a roaring fire. Delightful characters who one gets to know well. I missed the characters when I reached the final chapter.
This was a wonderful book, I can't wait to read he next one,
Each person in the book has their own individual story o tell.
She makes the town come alive.
I listen to the book every time I was in m car.
Six or seven persons are connected in a rather tenuous way to the person living at 16 Lighthouse Road. I must confess I never saw that address as being more important than any other. It did not seem that it would have taken that much more effort to find some common element to make this into one coherent tale.
Basically the book was OK and the narrator did a good job, BUT there is way too much happening. There are too many characters, with way too many events to follow. I normally have no trouble following various charaters throughout a storyline even if a little complicated, but in this book I kept finding myself thinking who was that again?
I read a book later in the series and thought I would go back and pick up the rest. So far I find Lighthouse Road to be a good start to the series. I look forward to hearing the others.
Yes, it is the start of a series that I feel will be very good.
no I listened over a few days
