The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber

Book Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber comes a heartwarming new series based in the Pacific Northwest town of Cedar Cove, where a charming cast of characters finds love, forgiveness, and renewal behind the doors of the cozy Rose Harbor Inn.

Jo Marie Rose first arrives in Cedar Cove seeking a sense of peace and a fresh start. Coping with the death of her husband, she purchases a local bed-and-breakfast—the newly christened Rose Harbor Inn—ready to begin her life anew. Yet the inn holds more surprises than Jo Marie can imagine.

Her first guest is Joshua Weaver, who has come home to care for his ailing stepfather. The two have never seen eye to eye, and Joshua has little hope that they can reconcile their differences. But a long-lost acquaintance from Joshua’s high school days proves to him that forgiveness is never out of reach and love can bloom even where it’s least expected.

The other guest is Abby Kincaid, who has returned to Cedar Cove to attend her brother’s wedding. Back for the first time in twenty years, she almost wishes she hadn’t come, the picturesque town harboring painful memories from her past. And while Abby reconnects with family and old friends, she realizes she can only move on if she truly allows herself to let go.

My Review

This book is one of many that I have read by Debbie Macomber.  She is one of my favorite authors of all time.  I read all of her earlier series in Cedar Cove and I was so excited to read this one as well.  Thank you Debbie for giving us all a GREAT book to read and I am hoping it will be a series.  I just love Debbie’s work. 

The story starts out as Jo Marie Rose finds love finally and before long, she finds herself a war widow.  So, she decides with nudging from Paul Rose, her husband, to start a Bed and Breakfast and decides to move to Cedar Cove, Washington.  Then after she opens the B&B, she has 2 guests who have issues that they have to deal with along with JO Marie.  There is a handyman who Jo Marie has met and he is dealing with loss of some kind as well.  I just loved this story and hope everyone will pickup this book. 

This book is so good, I could go on and on but I won’t or else I will spoil it for you.

This book is one of the best ones I have ever read.  I would definitely recommend this book to my family and friends.  This kept my attention from the first page to the last page.
