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.

    "last half makes up for slow start"

    this is my 1st book by this author. heard about her for years from others but suspected they would be like nicholas sparks books so avoided them. ns and now dm books make me want to gag and throw them across the room. picked this one because of cedar cove tv series. now im thinking tv series would have lasted longer if it had followed the 'ghostly' phenom and story lines outlined in this book. the first half is so boring my eyes were bleeding even though i listened instead of reading. good narration kept me going to second half. i may read the rest of the series so i can wade faster through the boring bits. now that the characters are getting fleshed out, maybe there will be fewer boring bits.

    "Disappointed"

    Not near enough romance. I was hoping to find something close to Robyn Carr books. This wasn't it. Sorry!

    "Was not a big fan"

    This was my first Debie macomber book and I can't say that I loved it. I was incredibly put off by the narrator's monotone/robotic voice and I couldn't help but feel like I kept hearing things repeated over and over again. Maybe had I actually read the book I might have enjoyed it more.

    "Loved it!"
    Would you listen to The Inn at Rose Harbor again? Why?

    I would listen again...I love happy endings.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved the new Innkeeper and loved the new name for the inn. Starting over is takes courage and she was an inspiration


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    She has a soothing pleasant voice.

    Story
    "Interesting story. Bad theology."

    Excellent performance by the narrator. The story kept my interest, but I was constantly uneasy with a theology that I could not agree with. I know it could have been presented as just pretend, but it was obvious that the author wanted to communicate that this is her perspective of how things really happen. The dead are the ones speaking to the living and leading them with voices and making things happen in their lives rather than God leading you and speaking to your heart. Although the author did not make light of God or put him down, he was just a non-factor. But the voices and the presence of the spirits of the Dead were very much a real factor in the story.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about The Inn at Rose Harbor?

    This was my first Debbie Macomber book and I was disappointed in it overall. The plot was super slow with uninteresting characters and storylines. It was one of those books that you just get through and forget immediately. The resolution of each guest's storyline felt contrived and not fully realistic.


    What could Debbie Macomber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Speed up the plot and focus more on the innkeeper's story and less on the guests stories. I understand what the author was trying to establish, but did every plot in the book need to be depressing? One of the guests could have been given a more fun and engaging story to balance the others.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, slow and uninteresting.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The innkeeper setup has potential for a series if the pace is accelerated and there is a mix of fun vs. more serious storylines.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to give this author another try. Can anyone recommend a title that they loved?

    Story
    "Just seemed to drag and drag..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    What would have made this a 4 or 5? An actual story. It just seemed to go on and on without making a point. Yes, a few things happened; but nothing that had me on the edge of my seat unable to wait to see what happened next. I really, really wish I'd read the first few reviews of this story before purchasing it; however, I am thankful I purchased it during a promotional sale.


    Has The Inn at Rose Harbor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all, I've read plenty of books of this genre that were very good.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Considering what she had to work with, I think the performance was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom.


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth the time.

    "Positive and uplifting message"

    Enjoyed the uplifting story and message of hope and healing in a broken world. In an imperfect world lives are so often damaged and it is good to hear a message of peace.
