Book Review - 1225 Christmas Tree Lane
1225 Christmas Tree Lane (Cedar Cove) By: Debbie Macomber
I was curious – that’s the reason I picked up this book. I had never read a Debbie Macomber book, and yet I am on her mailing list – funny, right. Debbie Macomber has a huge fan base. She is a very prolific writer, and I admire her clean, clear, concise and from the heart marketing campaigns.
So what did I think of the book? I liked it! I can understand why Debbie Macomber has so many fans. 1225 Christmas Tree Lane was poignant, and it read like a literary soap opera. The characters were engaging, and believe me there are a lot of characters. Most of the book revolves around simple storylines of each of the characters but they are all tied in to the main character, Beth Morehouse, and orphaned puppies in need of homes. It’s a feel good book, best described as a good “beach read”.
