Yes, but I would say that this series is based on sadness and very little joy. But it is still worth a listen.
I love narration by Lorelei and often search out stories she narrates. She does a great job.
I hope that future books aren't quite so dark. I understand that the point is Rose Harbor Inn is a place for healing, however, one can heal and still have some joy in their lives. I don't know if I would read an entire series that is based on sadness. I also recommend that playing up the mystery portion of the series can add more depth and less sadness.
A happy ending
The peek into the next book
A nice easy listen. I love a book with an ending that warms my heart.
How both guests came home with major problems, little by little they work themselves out.
I'm sure there are books out that have alot in common with this one but none come to mind.
She has an infectious voice, she livens up any books she reads.
Both, just as Josh makes peace his step-father dies. All of the pain and suffering Amy went through she found out that most of her high school friends did not bring it up. Her parents explained when they moved, many activities opened up. Her dead friends parents were a little harder, they blamed Amy, but in the end they realized it was a horrible accident that no one could forsee.
I really enjoyed this story. I cried, I laughed, and found myself wanting to listen to the next in the series now! I hope I have the patience to wait.
Although this series is taking place on familiar grounds in Cedar Cove the content of this series is different and I like the new direction. It was fun hearing familiar names and yet this series is covering different ground. I'm going to enjoy Debbie Macomber's new direction. Keep them coming.
I love Lorelei King when she reads for the Stephanie Plumm series but I wasn't crazy about her narration in this book. Maybe she just needs to get more familiar with the characters and time will improve her reading but I missed Sandra Burr.
Yes, I like Debbie Macomber stories, and I thought Lorelei King did a very good job.
This story was disappointing because it was somewhat fragmented. Perhaps, it will be better after the first of the series because this book lays the groundwork.
And, actually, had I read it rather than listened to it, I might have gotten more involved in the pathos of the characters in the differing subplots. Generally, you stop and start the audio, and it's harder to pick up where you left off. In contrast, reading affords you the opportunity of skimming.
She had very good diction and her voice is unusual-unique but very easy to listen to.
No. I would read this one rather than listen to it.
Although I did not favor this story plot, I feel it is a healthy sign of maturity that Ms. Macomber asks her readers to wait for the outcome of the main charater's story rather than the usual bundling everything up nice and tidy by the close of the story. I love a happy ending as much as the next romantic reader but there is lots of resolution here of so may forms of love. It's nice
i enjoy listening to debbie macomber's books and, of course, this was no exception--i keep looking for the next installment with anticipation--she makes me want to go and live at cedar cove!!!! please keep up the good work
hard to pick a favorite--they all bring something to the table
life is never dull in cedar cove
keep them coming
It's a beautiful story, very well narrated.
It's like three stories in one, as a bonus, we get to visit with some characters from the wonderful Cedar Cove series.
She brings to life the story and characters.
Yes, I felt the sadness, happiness and hope of the people in it.
Love to listen while i work
Started out as kind of sad story with a new widow but ends up with a happy ending and a hook to a possible future story line.
Loved the narrator! The story was just good! I can'wait for the next book to come out! So i now bought the first book in the Ceder cove series. Hope the narrator is the same women!
Jo Marie remained me of me.
Not a romance, but a "dealing with grief" book. I sincerely hope writing this book helped Debbie to deal with the loss of her son. It left me feeling totally wiped out and sad; not at all what I've come to expect from her uplifting stories.
No, but I will certainly not waste my money or time on any of the other books to come in this particular series.
Although Lorelei King is usually very good, she seemed to read much of this book in a monotone voice, as if speaking of grief. Her voice just added to the upsetting nature of the story.
Sadness, anger that I was drawn in, and great disappointment that Debbie has started an entire new series based on this type of story.
I don't think a book has ever drawn such a negative emotional reaction from me. I read to be entertained and uplifted, or to learn. I've read everything Debbie Macomber has written and always felt entertained and happy. This one was such a major downer. I cannot recommend it at all, and I will no longer follow her. I'll have to find a new favorite author.
