The Inn At Rose Harbor

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.

A touching novel of life’s grand possibilities and the heart’s ability to heal, The Inn at Rose Harbor is a welcome introduction to an unforgettable set of friends.

My thoughts...

I like that this book only has three main characters... Jo Marie Rose, recently widowed, is the new owner of the B&B and her first two guests are interesting people but she can tell each has deep rooted troubles. Neither one wants to be there, they have come for different reasons and both are terribly painful.

Also I like the fact that this wasn't a long drawn out story, things happened quickly and moved along at a good pace. I really liked the characters and that there will be new ones in the next book. Macomber has been a favorite author of mine for a while, her books are like fresh air and sweet. This one gets 5 out of 5 stars.

I received an ecopy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
