Macomber, Debbie – 50 Harbor Street. This is the fifth installment of her Cedar Cove Series. It’s light and a quick read. No brain effort involved here, it’s kind of like having a reading weekend. All the books take place in the same small Washington town. Each book focuses on a different family in town, with several story lines continued throughout the series. By now, for me, it’s like returning to familiar territory and characters. One thing I particularly enjoy about this series is that although Cedar Cove is a fictional town, I have spent time in the area of Washington where Debbie Macomber lives. This is clearly the inspiration for Cedar Cove and when she does mention real places they are often familiar to me.
