|A Cedar Cove Christmas|
by Debbie Macomber
#8.5 in Cedar Cove series
Mary Jo heads to Cedar Cove in search of the father of her unborn baby and the family that he claims to be visiting. She is hoping to arrive ahead of her three loving but meddlesome brothers to avoid an unwanted hostile confrontation.
I found this story quite whimsical as it mirrored the biblical story of Jesus' birth without bearing any religious messages at all. I don't want to give too much away but you really have to read it and experience it for yourself. An incredibly fun and festive read for this holiday season! I highly recommend it to anyone whether, or not, you have read any of the previous books in the series.
There is a huge cast of characters, which without having read the previous books in the series would have been impossible to keep straight had Macomber not provided a very convenient list and short background of each character at the beginning of the book. If you have already read any of the Cedar Cove series this would be like a welcome reunion as Mary Jo is welcomed into the community by the friendly and helpful people who reside there.
