Silver Linings Book Review

I went through a long list of books that I wanted as well as new releases and put a ton of books on reserve.  The crazy thing was that I had no clue what was coming or what was on the list because I reserved way too much at the same time.  I got Silver Linings: A Rose Harbor Novel (Rose Harbor Novels) by Debbie Macomber and I was glad to start it even though I didn't know which series this book was in.  I jumped right in!!

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.

This book series always includes some of Jo Marie's life at the Rose Harbor Inn and you always get to meet some of her guests.  I love to get to know more about Jo Marie through her interactions with the guests.  You learn about how her life is changing based on what she shares with them and also how the guests change after short visits at the inn.  This book was no different with a class reunion with Katie and Coco going back to their ten year high school reunion.  They both have things in their past to deal with and although the one seems like it is going to be much harder to overcome then the other, both ladies struggle to get over their past and move on with their future.  Their lives will both change forever just by attending this reunion and staying at the wonderful inn.  I hope that you check out this book and all the others in the Rose Harbor series because I know that you will love it as much as her other series.
