Dear Reader, I love living in Cedar Cove, but things haven't been the same since a man died at our B and B. Turns out his name was Max Russell, and Bob had known him briefly in Vietnam.We still don't have any idea why he came here and most important of all-who killed him. Because it now appears that he was poisoned. I sure hope somebody figures it out soon Not that we're providing the only news in Cedar Cove these days. I heard that Jon Bowman and Maryellen Sherman are getting married. And Maryellen's mom, Grace, has more than her share of interested men The question is: Which one is she going to choose? Olivia-I guess it's Olivia Griffin now- is back from her honeymoon, and her mother, Charlotte (who's in her mid-seventies at least), seems to have a man in her life, too. I'm not sure Olivia's too pleased . There's lots of other gossip I could tell you. Come by for a cup of tea and one of my blueberry muffins and we'll talk.Peggy Beldon"
