1225 Christmas Tree Lane

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 ex-husband, Kent, to  Cedar  Cove for  Christmas.

The girls  have  visions  of  a  mom-and-dad reunion dancing in their heads. As always in life — and in Cedar Cove — there 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!

What would the holidays be without a new Christmas story from Debbie Macomber?

My Thoughts: I am sad to see this series end as I have enjoyed all the books since 16 Lighthouse Road but at the same time I can understand Macomber wanting to develop new characters, storylines and locations. 1225 Christmas Tree Lane tied up loose ends of many plots from the series leaving the reader feeling satisfied with the resolutions. This last book in the Cedar Cove series will be released on 27 September but you can pre-order now on Amazon.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy of 1225 Christmas Tree Lane available via NetGalley.

I'm on the ebook list at my library for this book so I hope to read it before Christmas. I'll miss the Cedar Cove people but I hear Debbie Macomber has a new series in the works.
