Anyone who's been to Cedar Cove has probably met Grace Sherman. She's lived there all her life. Grace and her husband, Dan, raised two daughters at 204 Rosewood Lane --- and then, six months ago, Dan disappeared. Their daughter Kelly refuses to accept that he might not return to see her new baby, his first grandchild. Maryellen, their older daughter, is more realistic. Grace relies on the comfort and support of her small town, which is a constant reminder that life can and does go on. (back cover)
Debbie Macomber's book 204 Rosewood Lane is the second installment in the Cedar Cove series. It was a quick and enjoyable read for me, and I have now become attached to this series' characters. Macomber has a way to leave the reader wanting more... by ending the book but not the story! This book tells of new love and old love, new secrets and old secrets, and of new life choices and of past life choices. It also throws in a bit of a mystery - of course, to be continued. I thoroughly enjoyed 204 Rosewood Lane and can't wait to take up residence in the next book.
