Publisher's Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER

When a single mom becomes an empty nester, she spreads her wings to rediscover herself - and her passions - in this heartwarming novel from number one New York Times best-selling author Debbie Macomber. 

Jenna Boltz’s life is at a crossroads. After a messy divorce from her surgeon husband nearly 20 years ago, she raised her two children on her own, juggling motherhood with her beloved job as a Seattle intensive-care nurse. Now that Paul and Allie have gone to college and moved out, Jenna can’t help but wonder what her future holds. 

Her best friend, Maureen, is excited for Jenna’s newfound independence. Now is the perfect time to finally book the trip to Paris they’ve been dreaming of since their college days. But when it comes to life’s other great adventure - dating - Jenna still isn’t sure she’s ready to let love in...until an unexpected encounter begins to change her mind.

When Jenna’s elderly mother breaks her hip, Dr. Rowan Lancaster saves the day. Despite his silent, stoic exterior, Rowan is immediately smitten with Jenna. And even though Jenna is hesitant about becoming involved with another surgeon, she has to admit that she’s more than a little intrigued. But when Jenna’s children approach her with shocking news, she realizes that she needs to have faith in love and embrace the unexpected - before the life she has always dreamed of passes her by.

Window on the Bay

I have read many of Macombers books, but this is the first time I have listened to one in Audible. As usual, it did not dissapoint. I love her characters, and because I live in the Northwest, I especially relate to the scenes. Once again, she has a winner!

Comforting enjoyable

Predictable pleasant,in todays times it's nice to listen to a book that had some intrigue with a loving kind caring and compassionate foundation.sometimes a bit sappy but it puts a smile on my face and I'm thankful for that.
Love Debbie Macomber books.

Ridiculous

Are these adults? Acts like teenagers. The women are an embarrassment to adult women. Did not like this book at all. So silly.

I cannot believe I listened to the whole thing.

Repetitive dialogue. Silly, shallow characters in a plot so predictable it was painful. I wasted a credit!

Best friends fun!

I loved the idea of best friends sharing their lives because it related to real life and to hear the lives of their kids and how they grow up was very interesting to me. Thank you Debbie for a great story! It really kept me interested.
