16 LIGHTHOUSE ROAD
TITLE: 16 LIGHTHOUSE ROAD
AUTHOR: DEBBIE MACOMBER
Details: no. 1 Cedar Cove Series
Now this was a comfort read if ever I read one. A very fast read, and a story filled with characters I was delighted to meet and look forward catching up with again in the not to distant future.
Judge Olivia Lockheart makes a very controversial decision when she refuses to grant Cecilia and Ian Randal a divorce. They have been married for less than a year, and a devastating loss is tearing them apart, but Olivia is determined to make them reconsider.
At the same time, Olivia's own life is anything but tranquil. She is really attracted to Jack Griffin, who has moved to Cedar Cove three months earlier to run the local paper, but comes with a past and issues he is reluctant to share.
Olivia's daughter, Justine, is considering marriage with an unsuitable and much older man, when a man she knew in high school throws her into emotional confusion.
And Olivia's best friend, Grace Sherman suddenly finds herself abandoned by her husband, who disappears without any warning or explanation.
A lot more happens, and although some issues are resolved, as least as many are left open for future books. Books I'm looking forward to.
