A Cedar Cove Christmas by: Debbie Macomber

Title: A Cedar Cove Christmas
Author: Debbie Macomber
Publisher: Mira Books
Pages: 256
Series: Cedar Cove # 8.5

Description:

Mother-to-be Mary Jo Wyse arrives in Cedar Cove on Christmas Eve, searching for her baby's father. David Rhodes had said he'd be in town. But he isn't. Which leaves Mary Jo stranded, pregnant and alone. And there's no room at the local inn....

 So Grace Harding brings Mary Jo home to her nearby ranch. She and her husband, Cliff, have a houseful of guests, but they offer her a room over their stable (currently sheltering the animals--including a donkey and a camel--for Cedar Cove's Nativity pageant ). 

When Mary Jo goes into labor that night, a young man named Mack McAfee, a paramedic, comes to her rescue, just as her brothers--the three Wyse men--show up in town. The people of Cedar Cove join them in celebrating the birth of baby Noel. But no one has more to celebrate than Mack. Because this Christmas brings him faith, hope and love...

My Thoughts: 

Mary Jo Wyse has been having a hard time lately being very pregnant and the father of her child no where insight.  After a drawn out heated discussion on what to do about this from her brothers she flees to Cedar Cove to find David Rhodes or his family to let them know the Wyse Men are on there way and to be prepared.

She arrives and meets Grace Harding who is married to Cliff, who takes Mary Jo in and gives her a roof over her head and a bunch of animals underneath her.

I loved how Mary Jo was able to connect with Mack MaAfee the paramedic that assists Mary Jo with delivering her baby, and the hint of something more.

I enjoy this series cause we get to go back and meet the people of Cedar Cove and see what they are up to.  Such a refreshing change from the daily life especially with it being Christmas Eve.  Another great holiday read!
