16 Lighthouse Road by Debbie Macomber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
