I didn't even know that there was a new book out in this series until I saw it on the shelf at the library and I quickly grabbed it. I wasn't even sure if I had read all the others in the series but I knew that I was looking forward to reading this one soon. Sweet Tomorrows: A Rose Harbor Novel by Debbie Macomber is the fifth book in the series of 5 books. I am sad that I finished the series but this was a great book to end on.
Nine months ago, Mark Taylor abruptly left Cedar Cove on a perilous
mission to right a wrong from his past. Though Mark finally confessed
his love for her, innkeeper Jo Marie Rose is unsure if he’s ever coming
back. The Rose Harbor Inn barely seems the same without Mark, but Jo
Marie can’t bear to lose herself in grief once more. Determined to move
forward, she begins dating again, and finds companionship when she takes
on a boarder who is starting a new chapter herself.
from a twice-broken heart, Emily Gaffney, a young teacher, is staying at
the inn while she looks for a home of her own. Having given up on
marriage, Emily dreams of adopting children someday. She has her eye on
one house in particular—with room for kids. Although Emily’s inquiries
about the house are rudely rebuffed, her rocky start with the owner
eventually blossoms into a friendship. But when the relationship verges
on something more, Emily will have to rethink what she truly wants and
the chances she’s willing to take. The inn seems to be working
its magic again—Emily opening herself up to love, Jo Marie moving
on—until Jo Marie receives shocking news. With Debbie Macomber’s trademark charm and wisdom, Sweet Tomorrows brings
to a close the journeys of cherished characters who feel like old
friends. Macomber has created an enchanting place in the Rose Harbor Inn
that readers will never forget.
There was an amazing story of Jo Marie trying to move on with life while she is assuming that Mark Taylor is dead after leaving for Iraq a year before. At the same time, Emily has moved to the Inn to live for an extended period of time while looking for a new house. She finds the new house that she wants but the owner is unwilling to sell and no other house fits the bill. Emily and Jo Marie share a lot together while living at the Inn. Both go through incredibly tough times. I hope that you check out this book and the rest of the Rose Harbor Novel series. This is a great end to a great series. I loved the writing and the characters and I know that you will enjoy them too. I like to start at the beginning so if you want to also, this isn't the place to start but an amazing end to a wonderful series.
