Macomber’s 12th book in the Cedar Cove series is as warm and sweet as a cup of cocoa with extra marshmallows. The huge cast of characters and conversations that sound like a family newsletter may discourage new readers’ enthusiasm for this Christmas tale.

Beth and Kent Morehouse’s daughters have never understood why their parents divorced. So, this Christmas they are going to get them back together. They run into a few problems, though. Beth, who owns a small Christmas tree farm, is trying to find good homes for 10 puppies and to figure out how she feels about the town’s vet. Then Kent shows up with a “friend.” As the holidays remind Kent and Beth of the joys of their marriage, they realize they never stopped loving each other. Meanwhile, the other residents of Cedar Cove are celebrating the holiday with families and friends, both new and old. (MIRA, Oct., 288 pp., $16.95)
