204 Rosewood Lane
Cedar Cove, WashingtonDear Listener,If you've been to Cedar Cove before, we've probably met. You can usually find me either at home or at the public library, where I work. I've lived in this town all my life and raised two daughters here. But my husband and I - well, about six months ago, he disappeared. Just...disappeared. Where's Dan? Why did he go? Who's he with? Will I ever find out?My hometown, my family and friends, bring me comfort during this difficult time. Comfort and a sense of shelter. I'm continually reminded that life can and does go on. For instance, everyone's been discussing weddings and babies lately. Justine - the only daughter of my best friend, Olivia Lockhart - impulsively got married a little while ago. My own daughter Kelly recently had a baby. Unfortunately, she refuses to accept that Dan might not return to see his first grandchild. My older daughter, Maryellen, is more realistic. I think she's seeing a new man, but for some reason she won't tell me who it is.Then there's Jack, who's been pursuing a romance with Olivia, and his son, Eric, and Eric's girlfriend, Shelly (I think she's pregnant), and Zach and Rosemary Cox, whose marriage is reputedly on the skids and...Well, just come on over and we'll talkGrace
"Macomber's endearing characters offer courage and support to one another and find hope and love in the most unexpected places." (Booklist)

It's all in the voice
The story is great for losing yourself for a while but spoilt by the narrator. She lapsed into a patronising style as if reading to someone with low understanding. Also, she really can't do voices !!
It's not challenging but it doesn't need to be. I sometimes need an escape route and these stories are it.
It's not an easy job, I know, but please choose someone better. Maybe the author herself ?
I've seen the TV series of Cedar Cove (from the Debbie Macomber books) and it translate beautifully. More please !
