16 Lighthouse Road is the first book in Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series (re-release 5/2013), so looking forward to reading the series as missed the first go around. Sparks always flying in Cedar Cove - this quaint small town where everyone knows everyone's business - from missing husbands, some off to the Navy, some grieving over child's death, and some fighting divorce, and others new and old loves. Hallmark Channel Series - Debbie is a talented writer and is always engaging with her audience. ( )

I liked this book. I did. I didn't love this book, it didn't pull me in like other books have. I was told this was a romamce series. There is romance, but nothing steamy lol! Soaps are more steamy than this. It was drama/womems fiction which I don't mimd at all.

Charlotte (Judge olivias mom) is probably one of my fave chatacters. I'm not too fond of what I've seen of Jack (olivias current interest) Justine (olivias daughter) wasn't very likeable. I did like seth though. Grace was sweet and I felt very sorry for what she had to go through.
my biggest thing with this book I think is we met so many charachters to begin with there wasn't any connection. I can't even tell yoi which character was the main character in this book.

I did love Cecilia and Ians story. I real ly would have liked to get a more in depth look at the them. I feel they should have a book more about them. Their issues are real life issues people especially ones in the military face. I would have liked to see them actually work through it more. it all seemed to fast for me. one minute they hate eachother, then they can sorta stand eachother, then tragedy strikes and magically everythings ok. I didn't like that

it was a good book. Had a lot going on
I will continue this series, but I'm not in a hurry. ( )

Another wonderful book by Ms. Macomber! It is the first of a series based on her hometown – a town I think I would very much like to live in! She tells several different stories – all in different points of view. She manages to do this without confusing the reader. The central character is Oliviia, a judge in Cedar Cove. We learn her story – as well as the stories of the people around her (her mother, daughter, best friend, and a young couple she met once when they appeared before her bench). 16 Lighthouse Road is a feel-good love story – actually several love stories. I look forward to reading more in this series. ( )

I needed something a bit cozy to read after having a bit of real life tragedy rain on me & this fit the bill perfectly. I did catch the first episode of Cedar Cove on Hallmark Channel & knew that I needed to read the series. It's light & has just enough heart to pull me in & make me smile. It's nice to drop in on a small town & spend time with people who are living their lives without too much darkness & angst (I read plenty of that as it is). This was a nice change of pace & I also have to admit that I liked Justine a lot more in the book than I did on the show. I was much more able to empathize with her in this story & I look forward to reading more about her. I also liked finding out about Olivia's youngest son, Jordan. I don't recall him being mentioned on the episode of the show that I watched. I picked up a couple more of the Cedar Cove books at the library, so I can definitely say, I'll continue with the series. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a light weekend read or just the thing when you just want a soft place to land. ( )

I think I've mis-shelved this book. It doesn't really belong on "Heaving Bosoms" , but I refuse to start a "Fluttering Bosoms", so what can you do. I'm reading this Cedar Cove series because my family is doing it sort of as a group reading, and I'd like to stay in the loop with the family conversations. So I'm listening to them on audio, and Sandra Burr is her usual very competent self, bringing more life to the narration than I certainly could. The setting is the Anywhere USA town that every family sitcom from mid-century America was set in. Including those same values and mores. There's little or no crime, deviance, or depravity of any kind. Even the "bad" characters are, at worst, a little selfish and mean-spirited. Oh, and the one rich guy who's rumored to engage in shady business practices, has (gasp) divorced several wives, and dates women young enough to be his daughter. He's the only villain, as he wants to marry the young woman in spite of the fact that he can't get it up, locking her into a sexless and passionless and, even worse, BABYLESS marriage, but is happy to facilitate her engaging in extramarital affairs . They strongly value getting married, having babies, and interfering in each other's personal business. They do not seem to value birth control, rational adult communication, or an individual's right to self determination. Work and career are only a setting in which to carry out their personal dramas. The judge's mother routinely barges into her office to carry out personal conversations which for some reason can't wait until 5pm. My chief amusement in listening to this audiobook was continuously telling the characters what I thought of them and in imagining each annoying character getting just desserts for their refusal to communicate and interfering busybodiness - the judge disbarred, her mother occupying that jail cell with "Big Bertha" for theft and HIPAA violations, etc.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0778329720, Paperback)

Perennial favorite Debbie Macomber does what she does best in 16 Lighthouse Road, introducing fans to the scenic Pacific Northwest town of Cedar Cove, Washington, and its panoply of characters, including family court judge Olivia Lockhart who makes news when she denies the divorce petition of Cecilia and Ian Randall. Decreeing that the young couple had not tried hard enough to make their relationship work following the tragic death of their newborn daughter, Olivia's decision brings her to the attention of recent Cedar Cove arrival, newspaper editor Jack Griffin. And Jack's attentions are not entirely unwelcome for the long-divorced Olivia. In addition to her continued involvement in Cecilia and Ian's ongoing negotiations, Olivia's life is further complicated by her mother, Charlotte, her daughter, Justine, and her best friend, Grace, as they struggle with the difficult situations life tosses their way. Charlotte becomes enmeshed in trying to solve a mystery left to her by a mute stroke victim she befriends just before he dies. Justine has found the perfect man for her, one who shares her ambitions and thoughts on relationships, but why does she keep thinking about the boy she knew in high school who has grown into quite a man? And Grace's husband, Dan, has disappeared--again--and Grace has no idea where he is and when or if he'll be back. The multiple story lines and numerous relationships make reading at times challenging, but Macomber fans, old and new, will stand up and cheer as the prolific author lodges her protest against the disposable personal relationships all too common today. --Alison Trinkle
