Cedar Cove has become a favorite city for thousands of readers like me who enjoy gossipy writing, small towns filled with good-spirited characters, and a little romance and drama to keep things interesting.

Debbie Macomber does not disappoint with this eighth installment set in the soap-opera like town. Emily and Dave Flemming take center stage in this novel as the local pastor keeps important information from his wife. With his much-later-than usual hours and the discovery of some diamond earrings in his jacket, Emily believes Dave is either an adulterer or a thief. Old friends Roy McAfee, the local private investigator, and Sheriff Troy Davis will get involved before this is all put to rest.

In the meantime, Sheriff Davis has some important personal challenges to face as he anguishes over lost love Faith Beckwith and grapples with his daughter Megan's health issues. Old friends like Olivia and Jack Griffin, Grace Harding, Teri Polgar, Christie Levitt, and Rachel Pendergast reappear and let the reader share what is happening in their lives. In addition, new characters like Tanni Bliss and her mom, fabric artist Shirley Bliss, appear and begin what will undoubtedly be the fodder of future sagas.

My only complaints with this installment are: first, my personal favorite, Mary Ellen Bowman, only got a brief mention; second, the mystery surrounding Pastor Flemming was one I figured out very early in the book (maybe I trust him more than his wife does) ; and lastly, I want another Cedar Cove book immediately. They are addictive! Fortunately, in just another month we will have a Cedar Cove Christmas, but must wait a full year to find out more about what will transpire at 92 Pacific Boulevard, the home of Troy Davis.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's almost Christmas in Cedar Cove and Pastor Dave Flemming has plenty on his mind - the Christmas pageant (with live animals!), sermons to write, sick parishioners to visit and more. He's a busy man, but his wife Emily suspects something else is going on and begins to think her beloved husband is up to no good. Other residents of Cedar Cove have their own issues to deal with. Sheriff Troy Davis is pining after long lost love Faith Beckwith; Christie Levitt is fighting her attraction to limo driver James Wilbur; and Olivia Lockhart Griffin is fighting breast cancer. As each of them and other residents of Cedar Cove deal with their problems, they realize how much family, friends, and neighbors mean to them.

"8 Sandpiper Way" is the eighth book in Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series - a series that is a lot of fun to read. While the book definitely has a soap opera feel - complete with a large cast of characters - Dave and Emily's problems are very real and very timely in today's world. At times I wanted to yell at Dave for not confiding in Emily, but his keeping his problems to himself is also very real. Besides David and Emily's story line, there are several other story lines going on and the one that I like the most, more so in fact than Emily and Dave's, was the interaction between Christie and James (and Macomber drops a bombshell in this plot line). Chess player Bobby Polgar never seems quite real to me as a character but James his driver does.

If there is a fault in this entertaining series, it is that Macomber has too many characters in it.

I was anxiously waiting for the next book in the series, but I was disappointed. There was too much reviewing of the past books and too little story. There is still another coming and if it is the same, I am not going any further.

I love Debbie's Cedar Cove series (as well as her Blossom Street series) and this book did not fail to deliver. It was like returning home to visit old friends, and making some new ones as well.

I like how Debbie's cedar Cove books involve more than one storyline. I realize for some readers this can be confusing, but for me it breaks up the monotony of a book. I think spending an entire book reading about Olivia's cancer, or Emily's distrust of her husband would get tiresome; but by interspersing other stories in the book the author keeps it interesting. And she sets up more storylines for the books to follow.

Some readers have complained about being confused with so many different characters, but I don't find it that hard to follow at all. She gives us enough background in each book to jog our memories and if you really find yourself struggling you can always refer to the list of characters she has in the front of the book. I don't mind that she's bringing in new characters because I think it keeps the series fresh. After all, the main families (Grace and her girls, and Olivia and her kids) are married and married couples with kids don't always make for the most interesting storylines. Once you've done the usual...pregnancy problems, infidelity problems, health crises...there isn't much left to talk about. And you can't throw too much at the characters or it starts to become unbelievable so I think introducing new ones to keep the series fresh was a smart move.

I will admit that Debbie tends to spoon feed her audience. For example, when two characters are sitting down to have tea Debbie will go into more detail than other authors might about the selection of the tea, and the significance of the tea cups they use.
