Book: 50 Harbor Street [Cedar Cove book 5]
Author: Debbie Macomber
Reason for Reading: for fun
Christine's Review: Book 5 in the Cedar Cove series focuses on private investigator Roy McAfee and his wife Corrie. They are concerned when they start receiving cryptic postcards and a fruit basket from a mysterious source. While they work to solve the puzzle, their daughter Linnette moves back to town after completing a physicians assistant program.
As with other books in this series, Macomber notes the important plot points from previous books and follows multiple characters throughout the story. While the person responsible for the mysterious postcards is not so mysterious to the reader, I enjoyed the interactions between Roy and Corrie. Their daughter Linnette was grating at times and unrealistic. Macomber showed her age by describing a sparkly holiday sweater as something Linnette (in her mid-20s) would wear on a date. I had to laugh at that! All in all, this was once again a quick, gossipy read that is perfect for the beach or airplane.
