74 Seaside Avenue [Macomber]

Book: 74 Seaside Avenue [Cedar Cove book 7]
Author: Debbie Macomber
Genre: Romance
Reason for Reading: for fun

Christine's Review: Book 7 in the Cedar Cove series centers on hairdresser Teri and her chess champion husband, Bobby Polgar. While Teri has a dynamic personality and is a great addition to the cast of characters, Bobby is not realistic. A chess genius, he has limited social skills but his scenes feel forced. The drama of this book revolves around a Russian chess player who threatens to harm Teri unless Bobby throws a chess match. I don't doubt the competitiveness of chess, but the whole story arc was ridiculous.

Recommend: No

Book Junkie's Grade: C
