This story was a nice conclusion to the series.
Although every book in a series is supposed to be a stand alone, you'd be hard pressed to understand and relate to most of this one as she brought series readers up to date on the lives of so many others unless you'd read all the books. The main story played out well with a nice twist. I give DM credit, weaving a tale that wraps up all those characters with a pretty bow had to be a challenge and as usual, she did in a prefect package.
It closed a lot of doors in the Cedar Cove series. I will miss that series.
I have really enjoyed each and every one of the Cedar Cove books and this one is no different. 1225 Christmas Tree Lane wraps up the Cedar Cove series nicely. There are updates on families from earlier books in the series. I am really sad to "see" this series end.
Debbie Macomber is one of the best authers telling the family story on every level.. It's touchy - feely, happy - sad then happy again.
Yes, the whole series is very entertaining. You get to know many families who live in Cedar Cove.
Joleen making a baby blanket for Rachel and all the puppies getting adopted.
Easy to listen to and the variations of voices of characters.

I love all the books in the Cedar Cove Series. This book is a nice conclusion to the series. It tells one new story and lets the reader know what has happen to some of our favorite characters from the other stories in the series.
Not for a while.
No, it was a little slow and if you are not familar with ALL of the people and plots in the other books, you will get lost.
It would be great to have about 5 years worth of movies from all the books in the series. Like Mrs. Miracle. That would be great.
If you are a Christmas Tree Lane follower, this is a great wrap up!
I enjoy Debbie Macomber's books but I almost stopped listening to this one due to the narrator. Besides feeling like I was being read to like a 1st grader, Sandra Burr has the most obnoxious voice characterizations I have ever heard. I have listened to hundreds of books on my ipod and I have never before encountered a narration so awful that I was tempted to turn it off. Unfortunately, she narrates several Macomber books. I will download those to my Kindle to read at night.
It is saccharine and vapid,
Not bothered to write it.
Drop the forced cheeriness. Performed it as camp.
Amazement that such domestic shlock sells.
