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. As a result, there is a lot of "stuff" going on and, at times, the narrative seems rushed but I still have to say she did a great job in writing this final book. I don't believe the intended audience is a new reader to the series, but rather a long-time fan who wants resolution. There are an even larger number of tidy endings this time out, but I think that is totally appropriate. Who wants to be left hanging after following the series for years? I think long-time fans will be pleased, but I would definitely not recommend this book as a stand-alone Christmas novel - the reader has to have the history of the characters to appreciate this final narrative.
Bottom line: Debbie Macomber ended an entertaining series in the most satisfactory way possible and with her usual grace. As a reader, I would like to say "Thank You" to her for providing hours of enjoyment to me and other readers. It has been a pleasure!
I liked the idea of the dogs/puppies being given away for Christmas and really, the puppies on the cover of the book sold me on reading this novel. As cute as the dogs are, they really took a back seat to the characters but somehow, the daughter's planning to get their mom and dad together for Christmas, the dad's female "friend" that really turned out to be a friend and nothing else, the way the mom just dropped her vet boyfriend and him already having another woman in the wings, just seemed too contrived to me. Oh well, I have to agree with one of the other reviewers, it obviously is sort of a sad way to end a series especially with all the good things said about the other books in the series.
The sub-plots concerning the other Cedar Cove characters are present (somewhat). Basically, you get a synopsis of every single Cedar Cove book. "Remember when such and such happened a few years ago?" I ended up just skimming those parts.
So, in conclustion, this book had the potential to be good but failed miserably.
