Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Debbie Macomber comes a heartwarming new series based in the Pacific Northwest town of Cedar Cove, where a charming cast of characters finds love, forgiveness, and renewal behind the doors of the cozy Rose Harbor Inn.
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 20 years, she almost wishes she hadn't come; the picturesque town harbors 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.

The Inn at Rose Harbor is a welcome introduction to an unforgettable set of friends.

Wish I Hadn't

The book seemed be at the top of many list, so I tried it. I wish I had tried the print version so that I could have skimmed to find out it was a thoroughly tedious read faster. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen and it never did.

Unrealistic characters

What disappointed you about The Inn at Rose Harbor?

Characters felt false. In one case (semi-spoiler alerts), emotion swung from 15 years of bitter hatred to forgiveness in 30-60 minutes. In another, from near complete indifference to total devotion in about the same amount of time. The one bad guy that was interesting due to Rover the dog, never showed up again. Dialogue was awkward and didn't feel natural. Overall, very disappointing for the cost of one credit. Definitely would not recommend.


What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure.


What three words best describe Lorelei King’s voice?

Rough. Decent attempt.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Inn at Rose Harbor?

Reconciliation between Abbey and the Whites. Fakey loving turnaround by Josh.


Any additional comments?

The innkeeper and dog were the most interesting characters. Others REALLY didn't feel natural.
