As more characters are introduced, readers cannot help but to feel as though they are catching up with old friends. Before the young couple was married the year before, Cecilia and Ian signed a prenuptial agreement stating their marriage would last a lifetime, but now, after the tragic death of their infant daughter, the two wish to rescind the agreement.
Sensing that Cecilia and Ian are still in love, Olivia lets her heart guide her decision, and denies their petition. Create a free website or blog at WordPress. WP Designer.

You can usually, find me either at home or at the public library, where I work. But my husband and I — well, about six months ago, he disappeared. Why did he go?
Will I ever find out? My hometown, my family and friends, bring me comfort during this difficult time. Comfort and a sense of shelter. 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.
50 Harbor Street
I have one very shallow complaint. I request that Macomber no longer describe what people are wearing. I find the clothing choices to be huge character turn-offs. When a young and pretty Linnette dons a vest with sequined Christmas trees on it for a hot date, I physically cringe. When a grown woman in her 50's tries on several outfits and decides on a "blue denim jumper with big yellow daisies painted on the bib and a yellow turtleneck underneath I liked the book, it's entertaining and fast-paced.
When a grown woman in her 50's tries on several outfits and decides on a "blue denim jumper with big yellow daisies painted on the bib and a yellow turtleneck underneath" for a date with her new love, I just cannot even begin to understand what is happening at the Cedar Cove store. Who is selling this stuff?! I even went to check the copyright date but I don't feel like can warrant this type of behavior. That being said, I'll be starting the next book in the Cedar Cove series momentarily.
View all 17 comments. There are a lot of different story lines covered in this edition. More I think than in past ones. We visit Roy and Corrie and the story line with the mysterious postcards they have been getting is wrapped up in this book. We also visit Olivia and Jack, who I feel have become somewhat annoying as a couple, but they deal with something serious happening in this book. We visit Grace and Cliff, who are still on again off again, and I wanted to pull my hair out when they broke up yet again in this book!

Thank goodness that story line is gets completely resolved in this book. Timmons; and even Warren Saget is back in this one. Did I miss anyone? This series is definitely set up just like a daytime soap, but without the salaciousness.
Sure people have sex, get pregnant, can't make up their minds about who they love, etc. But there is no cheating on spouses or anything like that, and they always end up doing the right thing in the end. David reminded me so much of the TV version of Warren with his manipulative scheming. I also need to mention that I completely agree with another reviewer who pointed out how awful the clothing choices are in these books. I cringe every time there is a description of what Grace is wearing.

Thinking back on how put together the character was on the TV show, it's hard to imagine 50 something Grace wearing such out of style clothing like the denham jumper with daisies and the turtleneck, which were even out of style when these books were written. And also the 20 something character Linnette putting on the sequined Christmas vest for her hot and sexy date.
Spare us the ugly details next time Ms. Like the clothing, I end up ignoring a lot of little annoying things in these books. All the books in the Cedar Cove series have the same formula and so do every one of the relationships, which drives me crazy sometimes, yet for some reason I keep on reading them. I just need to know what happens to these characters, so of course I will be continuing on.

Review also posted at Writings of a Reader Jun 07, Stormi BMReviewsohmy rated it really liked it. I enjoyed getting to know Roy and Corrie more as well as figuring out what the mystery postcards was all about.
I also enjoyed everything else that was happening with the rest of the couples as well. Mar 15, Drebbles rated it liked it Shelves: Roy is a private investigator who initially thinks the postcards refer to a past case of his, but he soon suspects otherwise. Their daughter Linette recently moved to Cedar Cove to work at the new health center.
She is attracted to Dr. Chad Timmons, but much to her dismay, while he doesn't seem interested in her, ranch worker Cal Washburn is. Other residents in Cedar Cove have their own problems and worries. Judge Olivia Lockhart Griffin worries about her husband's weight and eating habits and pushes him to exercise with disastrous consequences. Olivia's mother Charlotte recently married Ben Rhodes and is pleased when Ben's son David reaches out to her, but Ben warns her that David may not be what he seems to be.
Navy wife Cecilia Randall is pregnant, but having lost a baby daughter shortly after giving birth, she is very nervous about losing this baby and it doesn't help that her husband Ian is at sea. Cecilia isn't the only one worried about her pregnancy, Maryellen Bowman is pregnant and having complications that may force her husband Jon to make a painful decision. Debbie Macomber is a good storyteller who creates characters that are real and that readers care about.
Although the book focuses mainly on the McAfee's, there are numerous subplots going on.
50 Harbor Street (Cedar Cove Series #5) by Debbie Macomber, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
Macomber will focus on one set of characters in one chapter, another set in the next chapter, yet another set in the next and so on throughout the book which can be confusing. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for which character is featured and I often had to flip back to see what had happened several chapters back.
There is a character guide in the front of the book, which is helpful, but in the future it would be better if Macomber cut back on the number of plots and characters in the books. With so many characters, Macomber does an amazing job of continuity through all the books this is the fifth in an ongoing series , even referencing things in past books, although there is no mention of Nate's girlfriend which was a conflict in his relationship with Rachel in past books.
While some of the plots in the book are unique, like the threatening postcards, other plots are a bit repetitive - isn't there one woman in Cedar Cove that can have a complication free pregnancy? Fans of Debbie Macomber and especially fans of her Cedar Cove series will enjoy this book. Jun 26, Marianne rated it it was amazing.
