1105 Yakima Street

1105 Yakima Street,
Cedar Cove, Washington
Dear Reader,
You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My thirteen-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her—
Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon. The other question is…when will Jolene grow up
and stop acting like such a brat?
Of course, I’m not the only one in town with problems. Linc Wyse’s father-in-law is trying to destroy his business. And you know Charlotte Rhodes? Seems she’s becoming forgetful, and the family’s worried about her and Ben. Lots of other stuff going on—but Rachel is better at keeping up with it than I am. If you have any idea where my wife is, give me a call. Please.

My Thoughts: I've read every book in the Cedar Cove series and 1105 Yakima Street continues the wonderful stories by Macomber. I love how the author uses characters from one book to the next in an ever widening circle with intertwining story lines. Yakima Street focused on a few couples and their 'love story'; showing how they work through problems and even leaving us hanging at the end so that we'll come back to read the last book in the series. 1105 Yakima Street will be published later this month and then we'll need to wait until October for the last book in the Cedar Cove series. It will be sad to see the series end as I feel like I am a part of their town.

I love this series, but it's been awhile since I read the last book. I have this newest one on hold at the library, but now I'm wondering if I will remember any of the characters. Sad that the series is nearing its end.

the good thing is that Macomber gives a list of characters with descriptions so that one can remember all who are important

I totally forgot about that! Fantastic. :)
