74 Seaside Avenue by Debbie Macomber

Genre: Romance

The seventh book in Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove series takes us to 74 Seaside Avenue where Teri and Bobby Polgar reside. Bobby is a famous chess champion and Teri is a hairstylist. A few years ago they married and now Teri is living a life she never imagined possible. She had the best things in life along with the greatest husband she ever could have dreamed for.

When Bobby becomes uncommunicative and over-protective of her, Teri fears something is going on and her newfound bliss might not last long. Things get worse when Bobby insists he meet the rest of her family which included an alcoholic mother and a sister, whose main hobby is stealing any man in Teri’s life. Teri desperately hangs onto her happiness, but when things take a turn for dangerous, she’s not sure how much longer they can survive.

Macomber takes us back to this lovely town and readers will be reacquainted with old favorites. It’s been awhile since I read the sixth book, but I won’t let that much time go between reading the next one. The characters in these books are so well-crafted and the town is one I’d love to live in or at least visit. The storylines are all realistic ones that any of us could be facing. I’m definitely getting ready for my next trip back to Cedar Cove.

A definite candidate for my Socrates’ Book Reviews Great Book Alert.
