In this enchanting novel set at Cedar Cove's cozy Rose Harbor Inn, number-one New York Times best-selling author Debbie Macomber celebrates the power of love - and a well-timed love letter - to inspire hope and mend a broken heart.
Summer is a busy season at the inn, so proprietor Jo Marie Rose and handyman Mark Taylor have spent a lot of time together keeping the property running. Despite some folks' good-natured claims to the contrary, Jo Marie insists that Mark is only a friend. However, she seems to be thinking about this particular friend a great deal lately. Jo Marie knows surprisingly little about Mark's life, due in no small part to his refusal to discuss it. She's determined to learn more about his past, but first she must face her own - and welcome three visitors who, like her, are setting out on new paths.
Twenty-three-year-old Ellie Reynolds is taking a leap of faith. She's come to Cedar Cove to meet Tom, a man she's been corresponding with for months, and with whom she might even be falling in love. Ellie's overprotective mother disapproves of her trip, but Ellie is determined to spread her wings.
Maggie and Roy Porter are next to arrive at the inn. They are taking their first vacation alone since their children were born. In the wake of past mistakes, they hope to rekindle the spark in their marriage - and to win back each other's trust. But Maggie must make one last confession that could forever tear them apart.
For each of these characters, it will ultimately be a moment when someone wore their heart on their sleeve - and took pen to paper - that makes all the difference. Debbie Macomber's moving novel reveals the courage it takes to be vulnerable, accepting, and open to love.

It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
I love how she captures everyone emotions and feelings in each character, to make you understand both sides of the story.
She always does a great job!!
Yes, it was perfect
I'm so excited, it looks as though Hallmark TV will hosting these series.
loved it. Debbie Macomber has a way of telling stories that I crave more! I can't wait for book number four!
Love Debbie, her style, and everything about this series . Lorelei is a great narrator as well and have several of her books. I can't wait to read and listen to the next....
I LOVE A GOOD MYSTERY. I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR AUTHORS THAT PEAK .MY INTEREST. I ESPECIALLY LIKE MYSTERY SERIES WHERE I CAN GET TO KNOW THE CHARACTERS.
Yes. I mostly listen to mystery novels, but I need a distraction some time. I have enjoyed many of Debbie Macomber's series over the years and the Rose Harbor Novels are no exception. I love the building and intertwining of the characters. The novels always end with a question of what will become of an ongoing relationship. I can't wait for #4!
My favorite character isn't a person, it's The Rose Harbor Inn itself. I enjoy watching the Inn become a special place where unexpected LOVE flourishes. Each novel has brought new additions to the Inn, in structure and in romance. I wish I could loose myself in a real Rose Harbor Inn!
My favorite character would definitely be Jo Lynn. As the innkeeper of the Rose Harbor Inn, Jo Lynn keeps everything in order, except her true feelings for Handyman Mark. Maybe Novel #4 will clear this up (I hope).
FALL IN LOVE AT THE ROSE HARBOR INN
Please pass along to the author Debbie Macomber that her fans are "patiently" waiting for Novel #4!!
People with serious issues cannot wrap their troubles up neatly, throw them away and live happily ever after. Over simplifies and sugar coats life.
I am a retired Neurosurgeon with a Visual disability and depend on Audio Books
Written for a 1950's, socially limited reader
The narrator was fine, the story was not
All of them
Perhaps, the worst book I ever read
I had eagerly awaited this third installment in the new series by Macomber but was very disappointed. The characters in this book act like children, including Jo Marie, and the novel doesn't get interesting until the very end. The cliffhanger is enough to make me want to get the next book but the sub-plots in this one are rather disturbing. Hoping that the next installment is better.
