6 Rainier DriveCedar Cove, WashingtonDear Reader,As you may have heard, we've recently had quite a shock. My husband, Seth, and I lost our business, The Lighthouse restaurant-to arson. The investigation continues. The prime suspect is a young ex-employee named Anson Butler, who disappeared right after the fire. So Seth and I are trying to sort out our lives. (And let me tell you, this kind of crisis isnotgood for a marriage. ) In the meantime, life goes on for everyone else in Cedar Cove-with marriages, births, reunions and even the occasional scandal. One of the most interesting pieces of news is that Cal, who works on Cliff Harding's ranch, is now rescuing wild mustangs from Wyoming. I have to run-I'm meeting an old friend, Warren Saget, for lunch. Let's talk soon, and I'll fill you in on everything that's happening in town!Justine
Mimi Pickford wanted her life to be more than serving up daily specials at the local diner. But the one man who could help her achieve her secret dream had suddenly dropped out of sight. Elusive hero Gibson St. James was known for rescuing babies from burning buildings--and for wearing his bachelorhood like a badge. But he'd also earned the reputation of being hard-headed, hard-bodied--and just plain hard to crack. Well, tough! Because Mimi needed his help--and she'd never shied away from a challenge yet. At least, never one sooo appealing....
Erin had nothing to lose by placing the personal ad. And lo and behold, Brady Lockwood was found--months after he'd disappeared! Only, he had no idea who the heck she was . . . or why she was calling him a daddy.
Dear Reader,I'm living a life I couldn't even havedreamedof a few years ago. I'm married to Bobby Polgar now (you know, the famous chess champion who just happens to be the man I love!). And we've got this beautiful house with a view of Puget Sound. Lately something's been worrying Bobby, though. When I asked, he said he was 'protecting his queen' and I got the oddest feeling he wasn't talking about chess but aboutme. He wouldn't say anything else. Do you remember Get Nailed, the beauty salon in Cedar Cove? I still work there. I'll tell you about my friend Rachel, who's got two men interested in her (count 'em,two). And I'll let you in on what I've heard about Linnette McAfee, who left town when her love life fell apart. (Thatkind of trouble I know all about. ) Come in soon for a manicure and a chat, okay?Teri ( Miller) Polgar
Dear Reader, I have something to confide in you. I think my husband, Dave, might be having an affair. I found an earring in his pocket, and it's not mine. I'm also worried because some jewelry was recently stolen from an old woman--and Dave used to visit her a lot. You see, he's a pastor. And a good man. I can't believe he's guilty of anything, but why won't he tell me where he's been when he comes home so late? Reader, I'd love to hear what you think. I also want to tell you what's going on with your other friends in Cedar Cove. Like Sheriff Troy Davis, to mention one. His long-ago love, Faith Beckwith, just moved here! So come on in and join me for a cup of tea. Emily Flemming
92 Pacific Boulevard Cedar Cove, WashingtonDear Reader,I'm not much of a letter writer. As the sheriff here, I'm used to writing incident reports, not chatty letters. But my daughter, Megan--who'll be making me a grandfather soon--told me I had to do this. So here goes. I'll tell you straight out that I'd hoped to marry Faith Beckwith (my high school girlfriend) but she ended the relationship last month, even though we're both widowed and available. There were a few misunderstandings between us, some of them inadvertently caused by Megan. However, I've got plenty to keep me occupied, like the unidentified remains found in a cave outside town. And the fact that my friend Judge Olivia Griffin is fighting cancer. And the break-ins at 204 Rosewood Lane--the house Faith happens to be renting from Grace Harding. . . If you want to hear more, come on over to my place or to the sheriff's office--if you can stand the stale coffee! Troy Davis
