These stories are a little humorous to me in the simplistic way they weave from one family to another, they are very predictable. Debbie Macomber has splashed some mystery into this one, an answer from book number one and a new one for this offering. What is Olivia up to, considering her ex again, or just playing hard to get?! A nice way to spend a couple of days light reading is nothing to complain about! View all 4 comments. Apr 10, Shelley rated it liked it.

She needed to dial it back and concentrate on a few. I'm probably missing a few. It was an insane number of characters for one book. I realize this is a series, but everyone does not have to be introduced in one book. The situation with Rosie and Zac was totally ridiculous.
I was rooting for Zac all the way there. Rosie was neglecting her family and not once do we see her think about that. Zac had issues with communication for sure, but he was in the right about her volunteerism. Never once did she consider cutting back on her volunteering though.
Seems she might have given it some thought at least once. Instead she decided that he was wrong to expect her to cook a meal once in awhile and she decided with zero evidence that he was cheating on her. Insanity, party of one. Maryellen and the situation with the baby. Get a grip woman.
So you were hurt in your first marriage, so you have regrets. Suck it up and live life. How old are you two? There's no reason Eric moving in with Jack should have come between you. Keep your regular Tuesday night dates, learn to schedule your lives for God's sake. And learn to pick up the phone and talk to each other. I will continue reading the series, but I really hope Macomber gets a grip on her characters and dials it back a bit as the series continues.

This is a review of the audio version of this book. The narrator, Sandra Burr, again does a wonderful job of bringing Ms. Sometimes it is difficult for a female to do the male voices, but Ms. Burr is great, putting a different inflection on each voice in a nice way and adding a touch of subtle humorous tone in the appropriate scenes. There are various storylines in the book and a few of them are unresolved at the end; it is a small-town-life-romance-chick-lit-soap series, after all! Judge Olivia Lockhart and newspaper reporter, Jack Griffin, are discovering their feelings for one another and their relationship.
Both are worrying over the same thing - about not being with each other enough; however, they both have so much on their crowded plates. And how about Olivia's ex, Stan? Then there is Zack and Rosie Cox, accountant and stay-at-home-mom respectively; married seventeen years, they are stumbling toward a split.
Their arguments and disagreements are doozies, as both parties have valid points. Macomber does a wonderful job of conveying how an argument can spiral out of control. There is plenty of life going on in this little town: Some of it will have to be resolved in Pelican Court. I'm ready for a listen!
Rosewood Lane (Cedar Cove, #2) by Debbie Macomber
View all 9 comments. A light easy book to read. Four stars only due to the fact that it was a little too much on the "romance novel" side for me. Good to read after a long involved read. Apr 14, Hayley rated it really liked it Shelves: Well this is the second book from the Cedar Cove series and I must say this is a great series of books.
You have several just in case you aren't thrilled with one of their lives, turn the page and there's a new story line. Starting off in the beginning, the book pretty much starts off where 16 Lighthouse Road left off. You have most of the same characters as well to follow from the previous novel. I loved the stories and intera Well this is the second book from the Cedar Cove series and I must say this is a great series of books. I loved the stories and interactions between all of the characters in the book. I love how they live in this small town and everybody pretty much knows everybody and no one's business is a secret.
I can't say much more of I'll give too much away, but definitely pick this read up after you read the first one! View all 3 comments. After finishing 16 Lighthouse Road I had put this series on hold for a while because I wasn't sure if I would ever want to revisit it. But a few days ago when I was between books I was feeling the need for something that was completely an escapist read, especially since I've got a Sanderson book going on audio right now.
I saw these on my Kindle so I decided to give the series another try and I ended up completely engrossed this time. Most of my same complaints about Macomber's writing are still After finishing 16 Lighthouse Road I had put this series on hold for a while because I wasn't sure if I would ever want to revisit it. Most of my same complaints about Macomber's writing are still there, like the amount of telling instead of showing, the way the books skip over weeks and months at a time, and the fact that too many of the characters are just too afraid to commit to the person they are interested in romantically.
And also once again there is the couple who is having marital problems. They were not really that fun to read about. I just wanted to hit them both over the head! Also Maryellen, I can hardly stand her right now. But despite all of that I liked this book for what it is, an easy read about people in a small town. Some of them are endearing and others are annoying. I got my escapist read and I'm satisfied. This book ended kind of abruptly with more than one story line unfinished view spoiler [ Maryellen's pregnancy and her relationship with Jon is the one I really wanted to see a conclusion to.
Poor Jon, she really mistreated him!
Review also posted at Writings of a Reader This book reminds me of a reading soap opera. I read the first book, 16 Lighthouse Road and enjoyed it, but I wanted to know more about Grace and her family which lead me to read this novel. I had hoped that things would be cleared up about Dan and why he left, view spoiler [ but nope. I am as unclear as before. All I know is that Dan is dead. I'll pick up book three eventually, maybe when I need to take a break from the intense paranormal novels that are my usual reading.
Jan 04, Suzanne rated it it was ok Shelves: This was an ok book, but there was so much still unresolved. In fact, looking at the major plot points, some of them progressed a little, but only one or two had any kind of closure.
That's ok I guess, so that is what I rated the book: Welcome back to Cedar Cove: The gang's all here with a couple new additions A couple things leave more questions than answers and a couple break your heart for the characters involved. It's hard to not spoil the storylines by talking through them I continued to root for them, groaning at a couple things certain Welcome back to Cedar Cove: I continued to root for them, groaning at a couple things certain characters did and wishing I could smack or shake them. Couple of times in the case of Maryellen and Kelly, I tried to be understanding since I had no idea of what they were going through but at times I was so exasperated with one or both of them.
We do get some insight into why Maryellen is the way she is about her current situation and I could understand her a bit better. Jon and Maryellen's part felt a bit rushed at first, I didn't 'feel' the attraction between them and wasn't excited by the storyline for most of the book but towards the end I began to warm up to them. Hopefully more will be explored in the next one, though I don't foresee an easy road for the two of them.
Rosie and Zach's part in the book The marriage is failing and each blames the other, I felt for the kids being caught in the middle.
What is Kobo Super Points?
Both of them were guilty of bad behavior. Their inclusion in this felt out of place to me the whole time There wasn't interaction with anyone else in Cedar Cove nor a minor mention of them from the first one. Even at the end of the book, I was still wondering how Rosie and Zach would fit in in the long term.
Perhaps it'll make more sense in the next one? Not sure how I feel about that yet We get to see more of Bob, Peggy, and Roy in this as well Not as good as the first book but still enjoyable in it's own way, would recommend. Mar 18, Typicalkiki rated it it was ok Shelves: I read this book because I read the first one in the series and was left hanging wondering about Dan's disappearance. I will read the next one in the series too, because this one leaves you hanging as well.
I'm seeing a trend in these books that will probably make me stop reading after the next if it continues. What really bothers me is Macomber's portrayal of all the female characters. It seems like every single female fights with herself over feelings for men and pushes men away, and they all ap I read this book because I read the first one in the series and was left hanging wondering about Dan's disappearance. It seems like every single female fights with herself over feelings for men and pushes men away, and they all appear to be naive and childish with their emotions.
It's so unrealistic, is anyone capable of having a mature relationship without game playing in these books? And the men are portrayed even worse, as big love struck saps that follow around the women like puppy dogs. No matter how many times the women reject them or push them away, they just keep coming back for more swooning over everything the woman does. It's getting to be annoying. View all 6 comments.

I picked up this book after reading The Shop on Blossom Street, to see if I just really liked the author or just that series. It really wasn't my type of book. While there were somewhat interesting plots, I had a really hard time keeping track of the characters and their involvement in the stories. Most of the stories reminded me of Lifetime movies and soap operas. I can handle that type of story if there's something else keeping me involved, but this didn't really have that for me.
I don't plan I picked up this book after reading The Shop on Blossom Street, to see if I just really liked the author or just that series. I don't plan on reading the rest of this series. I thought about giving this one 4 stars, but the mess with Zack and Rosie made me drop it one. Sorry, bickering couples are not my favorite thing to read about in romance novels.
Another reason why I gave this one 3 stars, is that this one reads a bit like filler since you don't find out the resolution with a lot of things in this one until book 3, " Pelican Court". One thing you can say about these books is that there is not a lack of characters. In " Rosewood Lane" we turn to Grace Sher I thought about giving this one 4 stars, but the mess with Zack and Rosie made me drop it one. In " Rosewood Lane" we turn to Grace Sherman and her family. Grace's husband Dan has been missing for 6 months and she finally decides to go through with divorcing him.
She has her two daughters, Maryellen and Kelly to lean on. Also she has a potential love interest too. I liked seeing Grace become more sure of herself. From what we read about in book number one and here, she hasn't had a happy marriage. She also has managed to not shake the life out of her daughter Kelly who acts like a brat and her histrionics since her father has gone missing made me tired. Macomber does a good job with juggling multiple people.
As I said in one of my other reviews, Macomber always introduces the couple who will be the focus in the next book in the preceding one. This time it's going to be Rosie and Zach. Problem was that the whole book felt weighted down with their acrimony. Cedar Cove always feels lively and interesting and it feels like a real life place you can visit. I thought the nonsense between Olivia and Jack dealing with her ex and his son was boring to read about. Just have a conversation and stop playing games.
They are both in their early 50s and I didn't have any patience with it at all. Maryellen and Jon, I could not get over Maryellen and what she decides to keep a secret. Those that know me remember that my two most loathed romance plot lines are love triangles and secret babies. So guess which one this is. Rosie and Zach, good grief. I didn't know who I wanted to shake more.
204 ROSEWOOD LANE
Rosie was acting like a martyr, but Zach acted like a throwback to the s expecting a home cooked meal ready for him every night. Neither one of them really respected the duties the other one had during the day. And neither of them had any sense since they didn't seem to give their two kids chores which would help keep down the animosity about the cleanliness of the house and getting dinner together.
The book ends pretty abruptly and you have to read the next book to finish up some of the story-lines. Therefore, under such circumstances, a curious reader -- like myself -- must learn the answers to such questions left dangling. And, I am pleased to say that this novel satisfied almost all of those expectations well.
Sadly, I found a couple flaws -- one just a minor, personal pet peeve; whereas, the other flaw actually effected my view of the plot. And, before I forget Tom Houston who had pursued a career as an actor in the 's's, as well as became a friend of Charlotte Jefferson before he passed away in Cedar Cove's nursing home; and John Bowman, a local artist and chef. I especially enjoyed watching all of the newfound relationships grow between the couples who are either recently married or dating.
Also, I enjoyed meeting the majority of the principal and minor characters whom Debbie Macomber introduced in this second novel. They added dimension and growth to the plot. Honestly, I felt utter relief once the numerous questions that Grace, Maryellen, and Kelly had been asking for the past 6 months or so. However, I was saddened by the cruel, tragic reason that Dan actually disappeared. On the other hand, though After all, I consider myself to be the kind of detail-oriented reader who truly appreciates and grows attached to the characters.
Having said that, I consider myself to be the kind of reader who believes that the names that an author chooses for her characters in the FIRST novel of a series SHOULD remain the names of those characters throughout the entire series. The extreme dislike that I felt toward this family effected my view of the portions of the plot that pertained to them, their life, and their situation. Honestly, I found all four members of this everyday, ordinary Cedar Cove family annoying.
Having said that, I can only hope that the Cox family's involvement in the next novel will improve. Also, I can only hope that Zach Cox; Rosie Cox, Zach's wife of 17 years; Allison Cox, Zach's year-old daughter; and Eddie Cox, Zach's 9-year-old son will learn to communicate in a healthy manner and will embrace the true meaning of being a family who cares for one another, no matter the circumstances. May the Cox family's involvement in the next novel be positive.
