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.

The characters were all such nice people, and that came across due to the author and the narrator
Debbie Macomber delivered again. The story line was great; the characters were engaging. I did want to hear more about the innkeeper and the handyman. A romance???
Debbie Macomber has done it again. Love the new characters and plot line.
The innkeeper because of her spunk and caring about the people who stay in the bed and breakfast.
She is an accomplished reader. Very easy to listen to.
Interesting, realistic and entertaining
Jomarie the inn keeper
I could have - yes
I am already looking forward to the next installment in the series.
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
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.
