The Inn at Rose Harbor Book Review

I was excited to get to start a new series by Debbie Macomber after finishing the last one so long ago.  The Inn at Rose Harbor: A Novel by Debbie Macomber was the first in the Rose Harbor series.  There is supposed to be a a mini book of "When First They Met" inside some of the copies of this book but it wasn't inside mine so I guess I have to go searching for the e-book version.  I am much better when I have the actual book in my hand to read a book but if it is the only way that I can read the prequel then I better at least try.

Jo Marie Rose first arrives in Cedar Cove seeking a fresh start. A young widow coping with the death of her husband, she purchases a local bed-and-breakfast—the newly renamed Rose Harbor Inn—ready to begin her life anew. 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. Jo Marie’s 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. And as Abby and Joshua try to heal from their pasts, and Jo Marie dreams of the possibilities before her, they all realize that life moves in only one direction—forward.

I enjoyed the book and had trouble putting it down.  With all of these books that were hard to put down all in a row, I haven't gotten a lot done around the house.  I have a lot of other things to do but it is nice to escape to a different world for a little bit through reading a book but then I have to come back to a reality that wonders why I didn't get those two loads of laundry done.  The story was both happy and sad (get a few tissues because you will need them).  All three of the main characters are dealing with losing people and moving on with their lives.  As with all Debbie Macomber books, the writing is great and makes you feel like you are in the middle of the small town.  I really enjoyed the book and can't wait for the others in the series!!  I hope that you check them out at your local library or bookstore and see what you think!
