Book Review: Debbie Macomber – 311 Pelican Court (Cedar Cove Series Book #3)

The third novel in Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove series is 311 Pelican Court. (Reviews of the previous books in the series can be found here: Book 1: 16 Lighthouse Road, Book 2: 204 Rosewood Lane.)

We catch up with Rosie and Zach Cox, who have divorced and are now working through family court judge Olivia Lockhart’s unconventional divorce agreement, set up to benefit the Cox children rather than their parents.

Meanwhile, a mysterious guest arrives at Thyme and Tide Bed and Breakfast and dies there overnight. Peggy and Bob Beldon, the innkeepers, enlist the help of Cedar Cove private investigator Roy McAfee to help. Old and new relationships are revealed as the mystery deepens.

Favorites from previous installments aren’t forgotten. Stan Lockhart, Olivia’s ex-husband, is trying to win her away from new beau Jack Griffin, and Grace Sherman continues to recover from the shock of her husband’s disappearance.

You’ll enjoy the satisfying resolution of some of the story lines while looking forward to the next book in the series!

Note: The press-release descriptions for the Cedar Cove books are so endearing I will include them as well. They’re written by characters in each novel, addressing potential readers.

Dear Reader,

One thing about Cedar Cove—people sure are interested in what other people are doing. Take me, for instance. Everybody in this town knows that my husband, Zach, and I recently got a divorce. Everybody also knows that Judge Olivia Lockhart decreed a pretty unusual custody arrangement. It won’t be the kids moving between my place and Zach’s. We’re the ones who’ll be going back and forth!

Olivia isn’t immune to gossip herself. Will she stay with Jack, the guy who runs our local paper, or will she get back with her ex? Inquiring minds want to know!

But the really big gossip has to do with the dead guy—the man who died at a local bed-and-breakfast. Who is he and why did he show up there in the middle of the night? Roy McAfee, our local private investigator, is absolutely determined to find out. I hope he does—and then I’ll fill you in! See you soon….

    You’ve piqued my interest in Romance Novels again…..haven’t read one in awhile. Although, I do purchase the audio books for long drives. Even my husband admits to liking Johanna Lindsey’s stories 🙂

  2. I don’t think of them as stereotypical “romance novels” like we all grew out of back in the day. It’s more of a “family dynamics” series to me, though I don’t claim there’s no romance involved! I’ve never read Johanna Lindsey and will look her up. Thank you for the tip. If they’re good enough for your husband they are worth a try! 🙂
