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.

    "Such an engaging story!!"

    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???

    Where does The Inn at Rose Harbor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Debbie Macomber has done it again. Love the new characters and plot line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The innkeeper because of her spunk and caring about the people who stay in the bed and breakfast.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is an accomplished reader. Very easy to listen to.

    Story
    "Great start to this new series, but...."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but I would say that this series is based on sadness and very little joy. But it is still worth a listen.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love narration by Lorelei and often search out stories she narrates. She does a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "I missed the Cedar Cove residents."
    What made the experience of listening to The Inn at Rose Harbor the most enjoyable?

    How both guests came home with major problems, little by little they work themselves out.


    What other book might you compare The Inn at Rose Harbor to and why?

    I'm sure there are books out that have alot in common with this one but none come to mind.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has an infectious voice, she livens up any books she reads.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    Story
    "Emotional Story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Inn at Rose Harbor to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Did Lorelei King do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    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.

    Story
    "Macomber Fan"
    Would you try another book from Debbie Macomber and/or Lorelei King?

    Yes, I like Debbie Macomber stories, and I thought Lorelei King did a very good job.


    What was most disappointing about Debbie Macomber’s story?

    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.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    She had very good diction and her voice is unusual-unique but very easy to listen to.


    Was The Inn at Rose Harbor worth the listening time?

    No. I would read this one rather than listen to it.


    Any additional comments?

    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

    She brings to life the story and characters.
