16 Lighthouse Road by Debbie Macomber

16 Lighthouse Road
Cedar Cove, Washington

Dear Reader,

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 judgment: 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

16 LIGHTHOUSE ROAD by Debbie Macomber is 377 pages in paperback form. It is #1 in Cedar Cove Series.

I found this to be a delightful light read. It is truly about forgiveness and working things out even when you don't understand what may have gone wrong in the first place. Once you decide to forgive and let the bad go, things do start to turn around. This was definitely the message for me.

I don't know if it was so much Olivia's story even though she was in a good portion of the book. She was one of the four different people in the book that had some things to work out. This book did not drag you down and there was humor as well as tears.

I had not read a book by Debbie Macomber in quite some time, but in my little bookstore, I can't seem to keep her on the shelf. So in order to keep current with my customers, I read the first in the series. I can see why my customers like her so much. The sex is at a minimum and there is a distinct message to the books. For the most part here is Daytona, my customers are on the mature side so this author definitely fits the bill. I like to be able to recommend books that I have read personally so now I can say without a worry that these books are not trash, but uplifting and great stories.

I am giving this 4.5 out of 5 stars and hope to read more soon.
