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

Very Light Chick Lit

I found this book on sale for $4.99 as the first of a series and tried it out. It's fun, but nothing really happens in the book, so if you are looking for action, look elsewhere. This is about relationships, and can grow a bit tiresome. But, it was definitely worth $5.

Drama

It was difficult to guess what this novel was going to unravel just from reading the short description, however I found it enjoyable. It weaved in all the necessary elements of a great drama - deceit, new love, heart break, new opportunities, etc. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone in the mood for a fairly light read.
