"The Inn at Rose Harbor" My Thoughts

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.

My Thoughts...
I have read and enjoyed many of Debbie Macomber's books, but this book was not a favorite of mine. It appears I am about the only person who didn't care for this book..

There were some weird parts I didn't care for at all. (They almost bordered on paranormal) And anyone who follows my reading genres know I hate paranormal. 

Maybe I have read to many of her many books made into series. Knowing that this is the first of a series, I was disappointed. I'm beginning to enjoy much more, books that are written with a beginning and an ending, than I can move on to something different. I never did like soap operas, and I'm beginning to feel like all these series books are becoming like soap operas. 

I prefer a book with a good storyline and a satisfying ending. Which I didn't feel this book had a very satisfying ending, but then again it is the first book in a series, so I'm sure there will be many more books to follow...

Will I be reading anymore of this series, I think not.

This book is part of my Nook library.


  1. Thank you for your honest review. I hope the next book you read is more to your liking.

  2. Nice, honest review. Too bad the book was a letdown.

  3. I love the Cedar Cove series so eventually I will read this one. I'm sorry you weren't happy with it.
