Third Trip To Cedar Cove Continues This Excellent Relationship Drama

Debbie Macomber has created a marvelous little town everyone would want to live in. Set on the water's edge near Seattle, this charming town has characters aplenty with secrets to share and relationships for readers to revel in. All the characters we have come to love from the first two novels---Olivia, Jack, Grace, Maryellen, Charlotte, Justine, Cecilia---reappear as their stories progress. Others who played minor roles previously--- Bob, Peggy, Roy, Corrie-- begin to step into the spotlight. This neat handling of characters keeps the storylines fresh and the reader intrigued. The residents of 311 Pelican Court are Rosie and Zach Cox. We met them previously when their seventeen year marriage ended in divorce. Now they are dealing with the fallout from Judge Lockhart's ruling---they must alternate nights in the house and not force their children, Allison and Eddie, to be tossed from parent to parent. How they cope with this unusual arrangement and come to terms with the misery they have inflicted on each other is the focal point of this installment. We finally learn Jon's secret and the mystery of the dead man at the local B & B heats up and is on the brink of a resolution. Olivia's love triangle with Jack takes many steps forward and backwards as ex-husband Stan stands poised to win her back. Maryellen struggles with being a single mom, and Grace allows a dirty little secret to take over her life. I'm hooked on Cedar Cove and can't wait to enjoy the next installment of this multi-faceted town that lies midway between Mitford and Peyton Place on the sex and sin meter.

The life and loves of Cedar Cove

This book is the third in the Cedar Cove Series and reading it is like coming back to visit old friends. The book features Rosie and Zach Cox, a newly-divorced couple who have been instructed by Judge Olivia Lockhart to keep their children in the family home and to alternate moving in to have visitation with their children. They find this a very awkward way to live and they also discover many other problems with the divorce. Olivia is still a major character and she is dealing with two men who want her to marry her. Her best friend Grace is learning to deal with widowhood and she also finds herself in a romantic triangle. Grace's daughter Maryellen has an out-of-wedlock baby and tries to keep the father out of his daughter's life. Olivia's mother Charlotte meets an interesting man and they soon find themselves in a protest march together. The death of a mysterious man in a local bed and breakfast is never completely resolved and it leaves some unfinished business to be tackled in book #4 of the series. This is a delightful and very readable book and the series just seems to get better with each addition.

Very Entertaining and a Feel Good Kind of Read

I just finished 311 PELICAN COURT by Debbie Macomber and it really was a touching book. I love how you see glimpes of several different peoples lives and somehow they all intertwine. I defintely want to read the others and will be on the look for the next in the Cedar Cove Series. I think I found a new favorite author in Debbie Macomber.

3rd visit to Cedar Cove was great!

311 Pelican Court, the third installment in the Cedar Cove series, was an excellent read. The family at this address are Rosie and Zach Cox with their children Allison and Eddie. Rosie and Zach are ordered through their divorce to let the children stay at the house and they are to find alternate housing on the days they don't have custody. This way the kids aren't going from one house to the other. They stay put and it's Zach and Rosie moving back and forth constantly. This book isn't just about the Cox family though. All the characters from the previous book are in this one too. They all have their own problems and situations to get through. There is also some new characters added in and some characters from the previous book that play a bigger role in this book. This keeps the book entertaining and moving.Debbie Macomber writes storylines everyone can believe. There is the Olivia, Jack, Stan "love triangle", Grace Sherman recovering from the death of her ex-husband Dan. Also the death of the mystery man at the bed and breakfast. Maryellen and Jon play a role in this book also trying to get along after the birth of their daughter. There is also bit in Grace's storyline involving Olivia's brother that is very interesting. I can't say more or I'll ruin the book.311 Pelican Court is a good book filled with characters that could be your next door neighbors. There is enough going on in this small town that you will not be able to put this book down until you've read the last word. A definite must read!

An interesting slice of life tale t

In Cedar Cove, Judge Olivia Lockhart informs the divorced couple, schoolteacher Rosie and accountant Zach Cox, that instead of their fifteen year old daughter and their nine year old son shuffling back and forth between them in joint custody, the parents will. In other words the kids keep the house and a parent will reside in Zach's apartment when he or she is not with the children.The Judge's former husband Stanley keeps visiting from Seattle hoping to reconcile with her as his second marriage ends. The Judge would like her former beau Cedar Cove Chronicle Editor Jack Griffin to show gumption and make a commitment to her.Olivia's best friend librarian Grace Sherman suffers from depression while still grieving the suicide of her husband Dan. Their Maryellen is pregnant, but refuses to allow the father Jon Bowman access before during and after she gives birth.Finally, at the Thyme and Tide bed and breakfast, a guest is dead. The owners Bob and Peggy Beldon are shocked, but more so he because the deceased looks hauntingly familiar from his Nam days that he shared with Dan.311 PELICAN COURT, the sequel to 16 LIGHTHOUSE ROAD, is an interesting slice of life tale that reads more like a series of rotating vignettes than a novel. Each story line representing a slice is well written and brings insight into the key character(s) as well as the small town. The prime protagonists are fully developed and remain consistent with the prequel so those fans of the previous novel, Debbie Macomber, or just a deep contemporary drama will value the return to Cedar Cove.Harriet Klausner
