8 Sandpiper Way

Debbie Macomber has been one of my favorite authors for a long time. When I read her books I feel comforted and relaxed. And I know I will enjoy what I read.

Here’s the blurb for the latest instalment of the Cedar Cover series, 8 Sandpiper Way:
Dear Reader,

I have something to confide in you. I think my husband, Dave, might be having an affair. I found an earring in his pocket, and it's not mine. I'm also worried because some jewellery was recently stolen from an old woman—and Dave used to visit her a lot.

You see, he's a pastor. And a good man. I can't believe he's guilty of anything, but why won't he tell me where he's been when he comes home so late?

Reader, I'd love to hear what you think. I also want to tell you what's going on with your other friends in Cedar Cove. Like Sheriff Troy Davis, to mention one. His long-ago love, Faith Beckwith, just moved here!

So come on in and join me for a cup of tea.

My first reaction when I finished this book was “That’s it?!”. Not necessarily because I wanted more, I just felt that nothing much happened in this book in comparison to the others. I got a chance to visit with some of my favorite characters, and there were new characters introduced to the mix. I just felt that overall the book was filler space, then I found out that there’s another one coming out soon, Cedar Cove Christmas. And guess what….It’s a hardcover. Lovely.

Well, I’m hoping that the next one will be more entertaining.
