I love reading Debbie Macomber book, but I especially enjoy her Christmas stories. They are always brimming over in Christmas Spirit. She has continually taken me away for a delightful visit with the characters of Cedar Cove.
This story takes place during the Christmas holidays. The story centered around Beth Morehouse who owns and operates a Christmas Tree farm. After going through a heartbreaking divorce, Beth had relocated to Cedar Cove and purchased the farm and continued the business of raising Christmas trees. She also trains dogs and has been involved with rescued dogs. This year someone has dropped a litter of 10 puppies on her doorstep. Christmas is the perfect time to find owners for these puppies- so she thinks.
The reader will be amazed at where and how these puppies find homes. Beth's two daughters, Baily and Sophie arrive to spend the holidays. Along with them Beth's ex husband is also arriving. The memories of wonderful family Christmases had been drifting through her mind as she prepared to see Kent. These went from rosy warm to ice cold with the arrival of Danielle Kent's "friend". But fear not her mischievous daughters had plans for mom and dad and they didn't include dad's friend.
Throughout the story you drop in and discover what has been going on in the lives of some of the characters from other books in this series. From the cutting of the Christmas trees to Christmas Day dinner it is a wonderful visit. But it wouldn't be Christmas without gifts and surprise. Both are sprinkled lavishly throughout the story.
This is the last book in the Cedar Cove series. I have enjoyed this series immensely and will miss the charming characters. However I am anxious to see what new reading delights Debbie Macomber will share with us.
