Publication date: August 30

Book description from Barnes & Noble:

1105 Yakima Street,
Cedar Cove, Washington

Dear Listener,

You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says that she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My thirteen-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her – 
Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon. The other question is…when will Jolene grow up and stop acting like such a brat?
Of course, I’m not the only one in town with problems. Linc Wyse’s father-in-law is trying to destroy his business. And you know Charlotte Rhodes? Seems she’s becoming forgetful, and the family’s worried about her and Ben. Lots of other stuff going on – but Rachel is better at keeping up with it than I am.
If you have any idea where my wife is, please give me a call. Please.

Bruce Peyton

  2. Thanks so much for your positive comment on my cupcake tutorial post! P.S. I was once a terrible sewer (as in needleworker, not anything to do with toilet drainage systems…hehe) too…until one day, I suddenly wasn’t…so amazing things can happen if you try 🙂

  3. Sounds like a good choice, enjoy!

  4. Wow…is it a good book? It almost seems like it would be kind of sad.

  5. I’ve never read anything by Macomber, but her books sounds really warm and fun. I should probably give them a try!
