Publisher's Summary

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

P.S. Pay another visit to Cedar Cove.

    "Interlaced Storylines"

    I enjoyed the interlaced storylines of this book. Perhaps however there was one too many. I could to easily relate to the characters who are facing real life situations with normal human frailties.

    The story description is a bit misleading as I was under the impression that it was all going to be told in first person narrative. Thank goodness it wasn't.

    "really bad .. no plot no drama no story"
    What disappointed you about 16 Lighthouse Road?

    i usually don't write reviews, but seriously, i waited 13 hours for something to happen. several plot lines never resolved at all. there was no excitement or drama. the characters were flat, and hard to even care about. i just don't see why this book received so many stars!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    i have downloaded war brides..our next book club selection


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    her voice was way to perky, and the "phone" conversations sounded like they were in a tunnel.. yuk!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment that i wasted a credit!


    Any additional comments?

    if i need to read additional novels to "get it", too bad! i have actually downloaded the new book but unless i am desperate will not listen to it!

    "New Fan"

    I thought this started out slow, when in fact Debbie Macomber was getting me so invested in her characters that I couldn't stop listening. I was pleasantly surprised with this book, and cant wait to listen to the sequels. It almost has a "Desperate Housewives" feeling to it.

    "Stick with the Blossom St if you like Macomber"

    This wasn't awful, it was good enough to make me buy the second in the series ( see reveiw on book 2, please!!). Sandra Burr did a good enough narration, but the story was just ok, If you are a Debbie Macomber fan, and I am, stick with the Blossom Street series. That being said, I have actually read the Blossom St, not listened to it so I can't comment on the performance.

    I bought this when it was the deal of the day. I'd heard of the author, so figured I would try it out. I'm couldn't get past the first hour.

    "An OK book but didn't care for the narrator"
    Would you try another book from Debbie Macomber and/or Sandra Burr?

    I might try another book by Macomber if it is on sale but would shy away from the audio by the same person


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sandra Burr?

    please use males for the male voices next time


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    not such whiny, wishy washy women would have made it better
