“The people of Cedar Cove know how to celebrate Christmas…Beth Morehouse expects this Christmas to be one of her best…But…someone recently left a basket filled with puppies on her doorstep…And…her daughters Bailey and Sophie have invited their dad, Beth's ex-husband, Kent, to Cedar Cove for Christmas. The girls have visions of a mom-and-dad reunion dancing in their heads. “
The excerpt above from the Amazon.com review sets the scene well. And, of course, since this is a Harlequin Romance offering, everything ends happily.
According to the note from Debbie Macomber at the beginning of the book, this is the last in the Cedar Cove series. While it is not an especially novel story, you do get to see most of the area’s inhabitants one last time as the neighbors do their Christmas visiting.
And, most importantly, by the end of the story, all the puppies have loving forever homes.
Speaking of puppies finding forever homes, I’d like to mention the Animal Rescue Site, a part of www.thehungersite.com. By going this site and clicking, you can authorize the site’s sponsors to make donations to a number of good causes including helping animals in shelters. This site is a quick and easy way to help others. If you are looking for a way to do more good in the world this holiday season, consider stopping by each day and clicking on to raise funds.
The Animal Rescue Site helps animal shelters keep their residents warm and fed. They also sponsor a Shelter Challenge wherein the shelter that garners the most votes gets a sizeable cash reward. You can vote for your local animal shelter, or if you wish, you may vote for my favorite – The Humane Society of Monroe County, Waterloo, IL. They have plans to expand their no kill shelter to hold more dogs and cats while they wait for their forever homes. You can find out more about the shelter and the animals they have available for adoption and fostering at http://www.hsofmcil.org. Thank you.
