This book was incredible! I found it to be enjoyable despite the fact that I am not a young adult reader. I initially consider the book because I am a fan of so if you can Cella, however when I read the description of the book I was curious because I myself have anxiety and depression.
I learned a surprising amount about my disorder as well as my boyfriends who also suffers from social anxiety generalized anxiety and depression. I would recommend this book to any teenager who has mental illness, or knows anyone with mental illness. As a matter of fact I think this would be one of those books that should be read in eighth or ninth grade English classes. It truly is an amazing view into a young woman's mind and how she deals with her problems it is also a fantastic porch rail of the consequences of bullying on those who are bullied. Not only that, but it is the story of a journey of the family trying to find their way, and trying to do what's best for each other. Overall this is a great read! :-)

Jo Marie Rose first arrives in Cedar Cove seeking a sense of peace and a fresh start. She purchases a local bed-and-breakfast - the newly christened Rose Harbor Inn - ready to begin her life anew.

The two have never seen eye to eye, and Joshua has little hope that they can reconcile. 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.

I gave this book 3 stars not because it was a bad book, but because it really wasn't in my normal genre. I liked it, but it was definitely an adventure outside my comfort zone.
I initially purchased this book because Laura lie King is the narrator, and I think she's amazing!
It she did not disappoint me once again her performance was incredible!however, the storyline of the book was a little bit too slow for me. There was not enough action or romance…
Again, though this was a journey outside my normal reading material.
