Debbie Macomber, Author . Mira $7.50 (377p) ISBN 978-0-7783-2073-9

The books in Macomber's contemporary Cedar Cove series are like a box of assorted Krispy Kremes: light and fluffy but irresistibly delicious and addictive. In this fourth entry, Peggy and Bob Beldon, owners of the Thyme & Tide B&B, are still recovering from the shock of discovering Bob's war buddy, Max Russell, murdered in one of their rooms. Bob suspects that Max's death has something to do with a horrible experience in Vietnam and now finds himself looking over his shoulder, fearing for his own safety. More unsettling is Max's fragile daughter, who shows up on a stormy night seeking shelter and answers. Almost everyone from Macomber's previous books (311 Pelican Court , etc.) makes an appearance in this one, each with his or her own bit of drama. Readers will be eager to learn whether Celia and Ian will have the courage to try for another baby after the premature death of their infant daughter, or whether Maryellen can convince Jon to forgive his parents before their wedding day, or whether the charming man courting Olivia's 70-year-old mother is really who he says he is. While most of these questions are left unanswered, this installment ties up the Beldons' story with a satisfying and surprising denouement. Agent, Irene Goodman. (Sept.)
