Silver Linings: A Rose Harbor Novel by Debbie Macomber
Set in Cedar Cove’s charming Rose Harbor Inn, Debbie Macomber’s captivating new novel follows innkeeper Jo Marie and two new guests as they seek healing and comfort, revealing that every cloud has a silver lining, even when it seems difficult to find.
Since opening the Rose Harbor Inn, Jo Marie Rose has grown close to her handyman, Mark Taylor. Jo Marie and Mark are good friends—and are becoming something more—yet he still won’t reveal anything about his past. When Mark tells her that he’s moving out of town, Jo Marie is baffled. Just when she is starting to open herself up again to love, she feels once more that she is losing the man she cares about. And as she discovers the secret behind Mark’s decision to leave, she welcomes two visitors also seeking their own answers.
Best friends Kellie Crenshaw and Katie Gilroy have returned to Cedar Cove for their ten-year high school reunion, looking to face down old hurts and find a sense of closure. Kellie, known as Coco, wants to finally confront the boy who callously broke her heart. Katie, however, wishes to reconnect with her old boyfriend, James—the man she still loves and the one who got away. As Katie hopes for a second chance, Coco discovers that people can change—and both look to the exciting possibilities ahead.
Another wonderful Rose Harbor novel. Very well written, Macomber describes situations and her characters feelings in a way that you actually feel what they are going through. Jo Marie Rose had received news that her husband is MIA and presumed dead. Eventually she begins to have feelings for her handyman and finds it difficult to face her emotions. He tells her he loves her and that he is leaving Cedar Cove.
Two guests arrive that will be attending a reunion and are on a mission. Coco and Katie are very likeable and their stories will draw you in. I think you'll enjoy this book.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
