This is the 11th book in this series. I feel like once a year I go on vacation to Cedar Cove and check in on everyone who lives there. It will be strange letting 'this family' go.
This is the story of Bruce, his daughter Jolene and her step mom Rachel. Jolene and Rachel had a wonderful friendship (see previous books) but Rachel and Bruce fall in love and quickly get married. This does not sit well with Jolene as she to learn to share both her dad and her friend. Jolene being 13 is not interested in the romance of Bruce and Rachel. Rachel decided to move out and this is the story of them trying to work their way to back other.
We also get the pleasure of checking in on other Cedar Cove families - Ben and Charlotte, who are aging and their children need to figure out how to become the parents vs the children. Grace and Olivia and their husbands, Will and his art studio. So many old friends are visited here.
A great read and I am both excited and sad to read 1225 Christmas Tree Lane where Cedar Cove will conclude.
