"44 Cranberry Point' by Debbie Macomber [4]

Dear Reader,
I love living in Cedar Cove, but things haven't been the same since a man died in our B and B.
Turns out his name was Max Russell, and Bob had known him briefly in Vietnam. We still
don't have any idea why he came here and - most important of all -
who killed him. Because it now appears that he was poisoned. I sure hope somebody
figures it out soon!
Now that we're providing the only news in Cedar Cove these days. I heard that John Bowman
and Maryellen Sherman are getting married. And Maryellen's mom, Grace, has more than her share
of interested men! The question is: Which one is she going to choose? Olivia - I guess it's Olivia Griffin now - is back from her honeymoon, and her mother, Charlotte {who's in her mid-seventies at least}, seems to have a man in her life, too. I'm not sure Olivia's too pleased....
There's lots of other gossip I could tell you. Come by for a cup of tea and one of my blueberry muffins and we'll talk.
Book four in the Cedar Cove novels.
This series draws you back with each novel that you read. Her characters are so warm and endearing that you just anticipate the next visit to Cedar Cove.
While the author says that each novel can be read on it's own and she does a quick recount of each individual, it really is best to start from the beginning, as you become more involved with the characters with each successive novel.
Book four has the final resolution to the mystery of the man that died in the Beldon's B and B.
But there's another mystery developing, and this one involves the McAfrees.
Newly weds Olivia and Jack are have some teething problems living together...
Grace is trying to come to terms with the loneliness in her life...she still loves Cliff, but he won't speak to her...
Cecilia and her husband Ian are in for a rough patch again...
Maryellen and Jon get married, but Maryellen hides something from Jon that could cost their marriage...
Where also introduce into the life of Rachel Pendergast a nail and hair technician at Get Nailed...
While there are many characters in these stories the author has written it so well that you don't get lost with what is happening.
So curl up in front of a warm fire with a nice cup of hot chocolate and just enjoy....
I rate this book 4 stars.
