"Excellent characterization." (Booklist)
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
This third in the Cedar Cove Series is good easy listening. It's not an edge-of-your-seat thriller, but then again, it's not meant to be. It's a sit-at-the-kitchen-table and sip-your-coffee-slowly book. I can cook supper while listening, or sew and not miss much. The townsfolk grow on you. And you root for the ones you have grown to love. You get aggravated at the dumb choices they make and are happy when they get their heads back on straight. I don't like a strict "diet" of Cedar Cove, but I sure will keep coming back for more!
I am fairly new to Debbie Macomber, but I am hooked! I love this series. I love how each book is seemless with the continuing story. I cant wait to read the next.
It's nice to have a novel where not everyone is young and beautiful. Characters are well rounded and believable. Storyline is quite predictable but I'll take good character development over inventive storyline. Narrator is ok but rather stiff and formal sounding.
Enjoyed mixing up reading the books with the audiobooks in this long series. Really feels like you know the characters as the series goes on. Well done.
It is easy listening. Having listened to the series from Book 1, one becomes involved with the characters and one is encouraged to keep listening to find out what happens later in their lives.
I love a good story that entertains and has well developed characters and realistic life situations where good is recognized as good.
I suppose many people enjoy this type of novel, but the characters seemed undeveloped. The book was "corny". You know, everything was to extremes..."so much". I had to stop listening.
