1225 Christmas Tree Lane: Cedar Cove, Book 12 | [Debbie Macomber]

1225 Christmas Tree Lane: Cedar Cove, Book 12

Beth Morehouse expects this Christmas to be one of her best. Her small Christmas-tree farm is prospering, her daughters and her dogs are happy and well, and her new relationship with local vet Ted Reynolds is showing plenty of romantic promise. But... someone recently left a basket filled with puppies on her doorstep, puppies she’s determined to place in good homes. That’s complication number one. And number two is that her daughters Bailey and Sophie have invited their dad, Beth’s ex-husband, Kent, to Cedar Cove for Christmas.

Publisher's Summary

The people of Cedar Cove know how to celebrate Christmas. Like Grace and Olivia and everyone else, Beth Morehouse expects this Christmas to be one of her best. Her small Christmas-tree farm is prospering, her daughters and her dogs are happy and well, and her new relationship with local vet Ted Reynolds is showing plenty of romantic promise. But... someone recently left a basket filled with puppies on her doorstep, puppies she’s determined to place in good homes. That’s complication number one. And number two is that her daughters Bailey and Sophie have invited their dad, Beth’s ex-husband, Kent, to Cedar Cove for Christmas. The girls have visions of a mom-and-dad reunion dancing in their heads.

As always in life - and in Cedar Cove - there are surprises, too. More than one family’s going to have a puppy under the tree. More than one scheme will go awry. And more than one romance will have a happy ending! What would the holidays be without a new Christmas story from Debbie Macomber?

Spend some more time in Cedar Cove.

    "Way too syrupy"
    What would have made 1225 Christmas Tree Lane better?

    I sometimes like Debbie Macomber's books, but in this one everything is soooo nice, and sooooo sweet. I finally put it on double speed to finish it. A little controversy would have been nice.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    CJ Box Free Fire


    What didn’t you like about Sandra Burr’s performance?

    Once again, I thought the entire book and its performance were too sweet.


    What character would you cut from 1225 Christmas Tree Lane?

    All of them.

    Covered most of the Cedar Cove relationships


    What three words best describe Sandra Burr’s performance?

    all in all good

    Beth's devotion to her animals made her one of my favorites!

    Didn't like the lame story, the narrator, plus the fact that I wasted a credit on this book.

    "over all a review of charicters of series"

    I enjoyed hearing the untold ends of the other characters of this series culminating at Christmas where all are friends or family and of coarse there is the main family group with match making to reunite the divorced parents I liked for a continued listen to a long running series

    "UNBELIEVABLE!"
    Would you try another book from Debbie Macomber and/or Sandra Burr?

    I have read other books of Debbie Macomber and enjoyed them. This book would have been bearable if you had read the others in this series. This should have been mentioned as prerequisite for this book. Without them, this was a summary of a whole lot of people's lives, summed up in a neat little package. The happy ever afters of everyone's lives and the Mayberry style of life on Christmas tree Lane made this book very unbelievable.


    What was most disappointing about Debbie Macomber’s story?

    The wishy washy dialogue, the sappy story lines and the sickening sweet way everyone talked to each other was a little hard to take.


    What didn’t you like about Sandra Burr’s performance?

    The whiny, sappy way of delivery. Very unnatural way of talking in todays world.. Almost gave up on the book a few times, but only continued because I am a sucker for Christmas stories, so stuck it out till the bitter end.


    What character would you cut from 1225 Christmas Tree Lane?

    I would cut and ONE character...one was just as unbelievable as the next. The book did not leave me with ANY desire to go back and read any other books from this series.


    Any additional comments?

    I need a PEPTO to settle my stomach after all those sweets!

    "well worth the read/listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I couldn't put it down for even a second. I would recommend the story to everyone.


    Have you listened to any of Sandra Burr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is definitely comparable to Sandra Burr's other performances. She's quickly become one of my favorite narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a brilliant Christmas story as well as a brilliant story in general. I was completely wrapped up in this story and couldn’t put it down, even for a second. Macomber’s brilliant descriptions pop, wrapping you completely up in the story. You can visualise each and every aspect of the story, becoming part of it.

    I love the large number of characters who are all uniquely and individually developed. In essence you’re reading about, no, welcomed into, an entire community. There is a main couple; however, everyone is always important. As a reader you almost feel like you’re a part of this community. It’s a brilliant feeling.

    Story
    "Very Poor Narration"

    An example of how poor narration can ruin a mediocre book. I felt like a kindergarten teacher was reading to me. The story was somewhat interesting - only somewhat - but honestly, decent narration could have made it much better. Listen to the sample and rest assured it is a horrible throughout. I won't be listening again, and will probably return.

    Apparently the seemingly random history lessons on the local people was to make up for those who had not read the series, and this book could have been just fine without them.

    I would never subject myself again to this narrator.

    "Boring"
    What disappointed you about 1225 Christmas Tree Lane?

    Boring story and very boring read aloud.


    What could Debbie Macomber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Add more description to the characters and setting, it was hard to visualize it based on the little descriptions given. Story was also very predictable.


    What didn’t you like about Sandra Burr’s performance?

    Very booooring, monitone.


    Any additional comments?

    Saw a Debbie Macomber movie on Hallmark Channel, thought it would be fun to check out one of her books. And although I didn't have high hopes, this book disappointed.

    "Not a stand alone story"
    What disappointed you about 1225 Christmas Tree Lane?

    I have not read the series, but the book's description lured me into what I thought would be a short holiday-inspired book. However I was very lost in the first few chapters because it is assumed you are already familiar with the characters. There were only brief snippets that are hard to hold onto especially in audio form. I thought the story would draw me in but I just couldn't get into it. This is the first audiobook I could not finish. Maybe someday I'll come back to it, but certainly not now.
