As someone who has been following this series beginning back in 2001, it was with mixed feelings that I picked up this last book. I wanted to read the book but felt saddened that the series was coming to an end. I think Ms. Macomber made a wise decision to bring it to closure since a couple of the more recent books haven't been the same quality of the earlier ones, but it still brought up feelings of melancholy since I have spent many hours enjoying her books, particularly this series. I found it fitting that the last book is a Christmas book since I believe that is an area where this author shines. It just isn't the holiday season without a heartwarming Christmas tale (particularly "Mrs. Miracle" - if you haven't read it, you really should).

Beth Morehouse is the character around which this novel is built, and we get to know her a bit better as she faces a hectic holiday season at her Christmas tree farm. As always, there are lots of things going on in her life, not just the busy business. Her college-age daughters are scheming to reunite her and her ex-husband by inviting him to Cedar Cove for Christmas, a pile of puppies has also been deposited with her that require time and effort at finding them all homes, and she is wondering if her relationship with the local vet has romantic promise.

This final novel has a slightly different feel since not only are we following Beth's story, Ms. Macomber is trying to bring many of the stories from many years to closure. There may be characters I missed, but it seems to me that every main character we have been introduced to over the past ten years is at least mentioned or has their storyline referenced.

"1225 Christmas Tree Lane" is the final book in Debbie Macomber's long-running Cedar Cove series. Each book is named for a different home in the fictional town of Cedar Cove, Washington and focuses on its residents. 1225 Christmas Tree Lane is the address of a Christmas tree farm owned by Beth Morehouse. In addition to running the tree farm, Beth is also fostering rescue dogs. Christmas is almost here and Beth is juggling the tree farm business, finding homes for ten lively puppies, and making plans for her daughters coming home for Christmas. She is surprised and more than a little pleased to learn her ex-husband, Kent, will be accompanying the girls. Could Kent be interested in a reconciliation? Beth is a relatively new character in the series and this installment focuses on her story. It becomes a comedy of errors when her daughters Bailey and Sophie are determined to reunite her with Kent, no matter what it takes.

While the focus of the book is on Beth and Kent, as is fitting for the finale of a long running series, we get to catch up with other characters we have grown to love throughout the prior eleven books. The characters are all making plans for the holidays and reminiscing about events that have happened in their lives. It is great that we get to see so many old favorites, but we are only given a glimpse into what's going on with most of these characters. We get small vignettes, but not a lot of action or details. Much of the book reads more like an expanded epilogue than a typical Cedar Cove story.

Even though I would have liked so see more of a storyline for some of my favorite characters, there are so many characters, I understand the author had to set limits on how much could be told about any given character.

A long time in the making, Cedar Cove and it's residents are saying good-bye to long time readers. 1225 Christmas Lane is the final chapter in Debbie Macomber's popular series that's filled with love, hope, heart and friendship. With characters that feel like home and romances that build a compelling tension, this is certainly a series many readers will simply want to cozy up with.

I'm no stranger to Debbie Macomber's writing. Having read many of her earlier novels as well as numerous short stories she's written I'm a big fan. Macomber writes in such a way that has you feeling as though you need a nice cup of hot chocolate, a warm blanket and a slightly chilly day to snuggle in for a day of relaxing reading. It's wonderful! Her latest addition is no different. 1225 Christmas Lane was a cozy read perfect for a chilly wintry day, but it may not be perfect for everyone. Unfortunately for me it didn't hold up to my normal expectations I have for a great Macomber novel, but it was still an enjoyable and quick read.

Being that it's the last in the series of twelve books I must say, you need to read the other books in the series before reading this one. There are some series books that you can easily pick up a mid-series read and feel comfortable moving from that point but this isn't one of those. In my case I was given a review copy to read without having read the others in the series. Many times I felt disoriented about where exactly I was in the story and which character was being focused on. Not only that, but quite a bit of the chapters felt choppy. In some cases I felt as though there was simply too much description in relation to the actual dialogue and setting.
