1105 Yakima Street, Cedar Cove, Washington
Dear Listener, Youâ€™ve probably heard that my wife has left
me. Rachelâ€™s pregnant, and she says that she canâ€™t handle
the stress in our household anymore. My thirteen-year-old
daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe itâ€™s my fault.
As a widower I spoiled her â€“ Jolene was reading over my
shoulder just now and says thatâ€™s not true. She claims
Rachel ruined everything. But thatâ€™s not true. The real
question is: How can I get my wife back? I donâ€™t even know
where she is.
Sheâ€™s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends
from the salon. The other question isâ€¦when will Jolene
grow up and stop acting like such a brat? Of course, Iâ€™m
not the only one in town with problems. Linc Wyseâ€™s father-
in-law is trying to destroy his business. And you know
Charlotte Rhodes? Seems sheâ€™s becoming forgetful, and the
familyâ€™s worried about her and Ben. Lots of other stuff
going on â€“ but Rachel is better at keeping up with it than
I am. If you have any idea where my wife is, please give
me a call. Please.

Re: 1105 Yakima Street
The Cedar Cove series from Macomber was and is in my opinion the grandparent of small town series. No one who writes continuing series set in small towns does it quite the way that Debbie Macomber does.
1105 Yakima Street is no exception to the long established pattern of the Cedar Cove Series. You get one complete story about a family, but also get to revisit other residents and catch up on their lives, without their issues clouding the main character's story.
I can only imagine how hard it is to write a story and have such a vast variety of characters to keep up with, and have totally enjoyed visiting Cedar Cove over the years. As I turned the last page of 1105 Yakima Street it was with mixed emotions as I was totally satisfied with the conclusion of Rachel and Bruce's story, but knew that with the publishing of 1225 Christmas Tree Lane a long running favorite series would be ending.
