Reason for Reading: for fun
Christine's Review: Book 4 in the Cedar Cove series focuses on Bob and Peggy Beldon, owners of the Thyme & Tide B&B. After Bob's Vietnam buddy is found dead in one of their guest rooms, the Beldon's are worried about Bob's safety. They don't know who killed Max (the war Vet) and aren't sure if an incident that happened long ago in the military has come back to haunt him. When Max's distraught daughter arrives on their doorstop searching for shelter answers, Peggy welcomes her and they try to solve the mystery.
In addition to the Beldon's, we continue to follow other Cedar Cove staples like Grace, Olivia, Charlotte and Mary Ellen. Once again, Macomber spends a lot of time rehashing previous books. While I enjoyed certain sections of this book, the mystery was not hard to figure out and I became bored with Bob and Peggy's narrative.
Recommend: NO, skip to the next book, Macomber rehashing all the important details so you won't miss much
