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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I usually finish books I enjoy. There were more active charactors and side stories than I usually seek, but they were easy to follow and interesting.

    "A light, good read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book. If you like Debbie Macomber I'm sure you will enjoy this book also. It is the first in a series and it is the only one I have read. It makes me want to continue on with the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed all the characters in the book. Debbie Macomber rights fiction that you can find at least one character that you relate to or just fall in love with.


    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    I thought Sandra Burr read the book well. I would consider looking for more books that she has read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The only moment in the book that suprised me was the ending that left me needing to continue reading more of this series. Thankfully it was a good book and I will read the next ones.

    Story
    "Enjoyable.Surprised me,not my normal book genres"

    I usually stick to books about spirituality, facts, life lessons, true events, etc.. I like to go away from a book feeling like I just grew a little. This book is not a book I would normally listen to, but it offered as one of the $4.95 specials, and nothing else caught my eye, so I purchased it.

    I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Debbie Macomber has a great way of describing the characters so you have a good picture of each character in your mind as the story grows. I really don't care for romance novels that give detailed accounts of the characters love making.. It's kind of how I feel about tv shows that show too much!! I feel like a peeping tom.. Really don't need the very detailed information into the most personal parts of these characters lives..With that in mind, I was very pleased with Debbie's writing style in that area.. She lets us know the characters are falling in love, physically attracted to each other, experiences passionate kisses and feelings, but she doesn't take us into their bed..

    I got the feeling that the people in this story are real, normal people, living lives like real people do.. I very much enjoyed following each and every character in the book, so much so, I just purchased book 2 and just started listening to it.

    As for the reviewer that is upset that we didn't find out what happened to Dan in this book, stay tuned! Grace, Dan's soon to be ex wife, is the main character in book 2, 204 Rosewood Lane.. I have the feeling we will find out what happened to Dan in that book.

    The narration is also very good.. How the narrator remembers the different voices for each character is amazing, as she changes her voice for each one.. All in all, it's not a book you'll grow from, learn anything amazing from, but you'll be entertained. I work from home, so I listen to audio books while I work. For me, it was just a relaxing way to work away a couple of days while listening to this book..

    I enjoy a variety of genres in books. I have no problem enjoying a good children or teen book as well as a good literary classic or a romance book.

    "Not really my cup of tea"

    This book was not quite what I thought it would be and it just wasn't quite my cup of tea. If a story of how peoples lives intersect and how they endure the trials that life throws at you is the kind of book you like, then this would be a good book for you. On that level it was a good story but just not what I was looking for.

    "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.
