Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener, If you've been to Cedar Cove before, we've probably met. You can usually find me either at home or at the public library, where I work. I've lived in this town all my life and raised two daughters here. But my husband and I - well, about six months ago, he disappeared. Just...disappeared. Where's Dan? Why did he go? Who's he with? Will I ever find out?My hometown, my family and friends, bring me comfort during this difficult time. Comfort and a sense of shelter. I'm continually reminded that life can and does go on. For instance, everyone's been discussing weddings and babies lately. Justine - the only daughter of my best friend, Olivia Lockhart - impulsively got married a little while ago. My own daughter Kelly recently had a baby. Unfortunately, she refuses to accept that Dan might not return to see his first grandchild. My older daughter, Maryellen, is more realistic. I think she's seeing a new man, but for some reason she won't tell me who it is. Then there's Jack, who's been pursuing a romance with Olivia, and his son, Eric, and Eric's girlfriend, Shelly (I think she's pregnant), and Zach and Rosemary Cox, whose marriage is reputedly on the skids and...Well, just come on over and we'll talk. --Grace Sherman, 204 Rosewood Lane, Cedar Cove, Washington

Down the Street in Cedar Cove

I really enjoyed the second in the Cedar Cove series, although not quite as much as the first one, and I think it's because I do agree with other listeners that there's a bit too much going on to keep track of it all. Nonetheless, I can't help but care about and grow attached to the folks in Cedar Cove. I was glad that Dan's disappearance was resolved. The ending was a bit abrupt, I was wishing for a few more answers in 204 Rosewood Lane, but it won't stop me from moving on to Book 3 in the series. I love Debbie Macomber's writing and find that her books are a welcome change for me after I've listened to heavier fare, such as murder mysteries or war stories. They are always centered around family, which I greatly appreciate.

- Debbie "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."

Just too many things going on for me.
