The people of Cedar Cove know how to celebrate Christmas. Like Grace and Olivia and everyone else, Beth Morehouse expects this Christmas to be one of her best. Her small Christmas tree farm is prospering, her daughters and her dogs are happy and well, and her new relationship with local vet Ted Reynolds is showing plenty of romantic promise.
But someone recently left a basket filled with puppies on her doorstep, puppies she's determined to place in good homes. That's complication number one. And number two is that her daughters, Bailey and Sophie, have invited their dad, Beth's long-divorced husband, Kent, to Cedar Cove for Christmas. The girls have visions of a mom-and-dad reunion dancing in their heads.
As always in lifeand in Cedar Covethere are surprises, too. More than one family's going to have a puppy under the tree. More than one scheme will go awry. And more than one romance will have a happy ending!
There's nothing like a basketful of black labs to get the holidays off to a delightfully unpredictable start. Yet when the arrival of ten abandoned pups on Beth Morehouse's doorstep coincides with the news that her ex-husband is coming to her Christmas tree farm for the holidays, things get more complicated at every turn. A pair of lovable, meddling daughters plotting to reunite their divorced parents, a misguided attempt to arouse jealousy, a town overflowing with seasonal spirit, and those adorable, rambunctious puppies make this another of Macomber's heartwarming winners. Verdict Tender, funny, sweet, and poignant, this final installment in the best-selling "Cedar Cove" series brings back favorite characters and ties things up in a way that will satisfy longtime fans and make new readers anxious to indulge in the earlier titles. A welcome character list makes it easy to keep everyone straight. Macomber (1105 Yakima Street) lives in Port Orchard, WA. [See Prepub Alert, 7/25/11.]-Kristin Ramsdell, Libn.
