"Lost and Found In Cedar Cove" by Debbie Maccomber

"Lost and Found In Cedar Cove" by Debbie Macomber is a five star short story.  In this original short story available exclusively as an eBook, Macomber shares a sneak peek into her new series set in Cedar Cove, which features Jo Marie, before she becomes the owner of the beloved Rose Harbor Inn.

Jo Marie Rose was a widow, Her husband Paul was a soldier, but she married him knowing the risks.

She was the owner of Rose Harbor Inn and her dog, Rover, who she had adopted from the shelter, was quite happy and secure
 there. She just wanted to make improvements that were above her capabilities and so enters Mark Taylor, a local handyman. It was while they were discussing plans for one of these changes that Rover is discovered missing!

Travis Kilroy and Amanda Palmer are complete opposites, He is a jock and she is a geek. They are in a tutor situation and a classmate walks in and assumes they are on a date!  Rover stands by Amanda's car and won't let her leave.  So as most love stories goes Travis asks  Amanda for a real date saying. "I'm done searching for your x. He's gone, and I don't know y." I just love this direct quote from the book.

There are two negatives in this book for me, there is a swear word ( a body of water). I know not all would mind but for me and others this is a problem. The second negative is that this book is so great that you want to read the rest of the series and if your tbr pile is as large as mine, that is a negative!(not really lol) 


  1. I like Debbie Macomber's books but I have noticed that she does use swear words from time to time. While I don't like it, I try to ignore them and get on with the story. I don't know why a Christian author feels the need to throw swear words in their stories once in awhile.

    Great review!
