Friday Favorites

Friday is favorites day here on Debbie's Book Blog. I'm sure there must be another blog out there that started this one, but I'm not sure who to give credit to. After this week Friday Favorites is going to switch to Friday's Spotlight. I've been doing a lot of looking around in blogspace lol... and I've decided to find a blog each week that has less than 100-150 followers and spot light that blog. I don't have a huge following yet, since I've just started and want others to be able to find a new audience also.

This weeks Friday Favorite is: 16 Lighthouse Road by Debbie Macomber.

I stumbled across the Cedar Cove Series awhile back and was really delighted to find just a good romantic read without a lot erotic scenes. Just down to earth every day characters. I like the way that characters lives intermingle.

16 Lighthouse Road
Cedar Cove, Washington

Dear Listener,
You don't know me yet, but in a few hours that's going to change. You see, I'm inviting you to my home and my town of Cedar Cove because I want you to meet my family, friends, and neighbors. Come and hear their stories - maybe even their secrets!
I have to admit that my own secrets are pretty open. My marriage failed some years ago, and I have a rather…difficult relationship with my daughter, Justine. Then there's my mother, Charlotte, who has plenty of opinions and is always willing to share them.
Here's an example: I'm a family court judge and she likes to drop in on my courtroom. Recently I was hearing a divorce petition. In Charlotte's view, young Cecilia and Ian Randall hadn't tried hard enough to make their marriage work - and I agreed. So I rendered my judgement: Divorce Denied.
Well, you wouldn't believe the reaction! Thanks to an article by Jack Griffin, the editor of our local paper (and a man I wouldn't mind seeing more of!), everyone's talking.
Cedar Cove - people love it and sometimes they leave it, but they never forget it!
See you soon…

It's very generous to spotlight other blogs. A good way to travel the blogosphere and share the love! I adore your background design. Very cool!

The book sounds cute and I like the cover. Thanks for the heads up!

I love your background also. =) Thank you so much for visiting me.
I haven't read Debbie Macomber in ages. This does sound interesting.
