1225 Christmas Tree Lane by Debbie Macomber

Summary from publisher:
The people of Cedar Cove know how to celebrate Christmas. Like Grace and Olivia and everyone else, Beth Morehouse expects this Christmas to be one of her best. Her small Christmas-tree farm is prospering, her daughters and her dogs are happy and well, and her new relationship with local vet Ted Reynolds is showing plenty of romantic promise.
But someone recently left a basket filled with puppies on her doorstep, puppies she’s determined to place in good homes. That’s complication number one. And number two is that her daughters Bailey and Sophie have invited their dad, Beth’s ex-husband, Kent, to Cedar Cove for Christmas. The girls have visions of a mom-and-dad reunion dancing in their heads.
As always in life, and in Cedar Cove, there are surprises, too. More than one family’s going to have a puppy under the tree. More than one scheme will go awry. And more than one romance will have a happy ending
I like to read a sweet, sappy Christmas story every year. It gets me into the spirit and you know there will be a happy ending.
I did not know that this was the last book in a pretty long series, but that didn’t take away from the story. There were some stories that were referenced and wrapped up and I didn’t really understand, but it was nice to see so many people have happy things happen. It all worked because it was connected to the puppies left at the doorstep and was not just random.
The main story in this was great. It was sweet, funny, and there were several misunderstandings that made things interesting.
It is a fun and very fast read, perfect for the holidays.
