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.

    NO

    I have heard better from her - so perhaps yes

    "Good Story, Lousy Narrator"

    Many characters, every one with an interesting story. I enjoyed the story enough to continue with the series, but the narrator sounded just like a telephone operator, mechanical and impersonal. I will read the rest of the series the old fashioned way.

    "Painfully poor"

    I had read a book by the author prior to this one and broke from my murder mysteries and suspense novels for this. It was a mistake. It's a novel of rather badly misunderstood or mistreated women who have encounters with unrealistically and weakly portrayed men. It's a true confession novel that will put you to sleep or afraid of getting older.

    "Narrator ruined any possibility of an OK story"

    Being a knitter, I have enjoyed Macomber's books in the past. Got this on $4.95 sale. Would be possible to listen to a nice story, but the narrator's tone is that of an old busy buddy with a little bun on top of her head. She simply was too irritating to listen to past Chapter 3. I quit.

    "16 Lighthouse Road"

    A wonderful story that tugs at your heart. I did enjoy this book overall but I had some problems following the central plot because there were so many subplots it got confusing following the storyline at times.

    "It was OK"

    The story at times was very productive all. The inevitable conclusion drug on. The readers voice was very unexcited. The story it's self was OK. There was very little mystery or romance.

    "Writing style exhausts me"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I enjoy Ms. Macomber's story lines, but her dialogue is highly improbable. It's stilted and formal. Proper and correct, yes, but much too formal for books like the ones Ms Macomber writes.


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

    TIresome. Her male voices are pompous and forced.
