1105 Yakima Street | [Debbie Macomber]

1105 Yakima Street

Dear Reader,You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My 13-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her - Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon.

Publisher's Summary

1105 Yakima Street
Cedar Cove, Washington

Dear Reader,You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My 13-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her - Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon. The other question is... when will Jolene grow up and stop acting like such a brat?

Of course, I’m not the only one in town with problems. Linc Wyse’s father-in-law is trying to destroy his business. And you know Charlotte Rhodes? Seems she’s becoming forgetful, and the family’s worried about her and Ben. Lots of other stuff going on - but Rachel is better at keeping up with it than I am.If you have any idea where my wife is, give me a call. Please.

    "Plenty of Saccharine and neurotic characters"

    At the risk of upsetting die-hard Debbie Macomber fans, this was the least favorite of her books that I've read. I found myself rolling my eyes most of the time. Why do these characters play such games? Grace, refusing to fall in-love with a puppy. I can't even remember the characters names anymore, and I just finished the book-- the whiny pregnant girl who ditched the hunky doctor (in the last book). Will and Miranda... good Lord, that was a boring and predictable thing waiting to happen. Worst of all was the whole Rachael fiasco-- with the bratty daughter. My eyes almost rolled permanently in the back of my head, when Rachael refused to accept money from Bruce, while pregnant with his child. Really? It seems like all the characters are just playing games-- heaping on the guilt and stubborn pride. All the story lines wrapped up in a neat little bow-- as predictably as I figured they would. This is good, clean reading. Nothing wrong with that, but I guess I've outgrown the Harlequin romance type of novels. Now, for an exciting history fiction-- with knights sweeping damsels onto the back of their horses, swords, fights, and all that stuff-- I'd rather read about women of character who have guts and courage. You won't find it here.

    "What a Sweet Read"

    Sweet story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Debbie Macomber always gives us a good read and this book was right on the mark. Good job.

    I have always loved getting lost in a book. And although, I attempt to be more rounded with my reading, I always come back to Mystery.

    "Disappointed"
    What would have made 1105 Yakima Street better?

    I felt, early on, there were too many characters. Maybe this is because I didn't start with the first book in the Cedar Cove series. I started with this one. The pretty cover picture pulled me in. At times, I felt like the writing seemed almost childlike. I could envision a high school senior typing away. I had a difficult time with most of the characters and their complaisant personalities. No one seemed to have any strength at all......everyone walks away from adversity and hopes it will all work out.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably going back to mystery...Lee Child or James Patterson.....even better, Michael Connelly.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sandra Burr’s performances?

    I felt her performance was probably decent for what she had to work with.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the first books I actually want to trade in....get a refund. Was glad to see that might be possible. I have 4 more chapters to go. I kept hoping the writing was going to get more interesting. Too late, now.

    "Just wasn't my kind of book."
    What would have made 1105 Yakima Street better?

    I think that if 1105 Yakima Street had less main characters it would be easier to follow what is going on in the book.

    "couldn't get through the first chapter, just awful"
    What disappointed you about 1105 Yakima Street?

    flat, predictable story and writing. The writing itself was just impossible for me - I couldn't stand it.


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

    Overacting. I guess it went with the cutesy-ness of the story.

    "Friendly"

    I've enjoyed some of the Macomber books, but this one, well.....maybe the author is running out of steam -- it is the second to last in the series. However, I hung in there just to enjoy happy endings, and listening was a friendly background to some tedious household tasks! It is pleasant to hear people caring for each other.

    On the other hand, the book rested on some pretty standard formulas such as concealing true romantic feelings and eventual happy-happy declarations of the truth. There are pregnancies and puppies and a confused teenager. And aging parents as well as adults soldiering on recovering from this that and the other.

    A pleasant book read by a pleasant reader.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book is like a soap opera, day to day life good and bad times. I enjoyed the book it had me up and down with so many emotions. I would highly recommend it

    "Product Similar To a Seventh Grade Writing Class"
    What would have made 1105 Yakima Street better?

    Usually I give points for an author's willingness to be brave and publish in the first place but given Debbie Macomber's long career I'm embarrassed for her.

    This was an insult to any adult's intelligence.

    It was not difficult to keep up with the 4-5 couples/romances or the extended intertwined familial and neighborly relations. It just meandered and wound and went nowhere until everything finally wrapped up in the last 2-3 chapters.

    Dear Reader,You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My 13-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her - Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice was not suited for ANY of the characters even though there was a plethora to choose from. The narration and the material made hitting myself in the forehead a more appealing option.
