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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
