I enjoyed this book so much.
There was plenty going on with each character to hold your interest and surprise you.
A wonderful second book for this new series.
After learning of her husbands death in Afghanistan, Jo Marie bought a B&B in Cedar Cove and christened it The Inn at Rose Harbor. Settling into the charming community, becoming a first-class baker, and opening her home and her heart to guests have contributed to her own healing process, and she always feels especially connected to guests who are working through their own issues.
She believes that the inn and the town offer sanctuary to anyone who needs it and is gratified when visitors seem buoyed by them. Its spring in Cedar Cove, and guests to the inn include Annie, a young woman who has recently broken off her flawed engagement, and Mary, who is fighting cancer and wants a last glimpse of Seattle and some important people who live there, including George, the only man she ever loved.
As for Jo Marie, she has a few concerns this season, including the ornery handyman she works with and some difficult news regarding the husband she still mourns.
There are many surprise throughout the book on each character. This is typically not the kind of book I would read but it was a book-club pick. There were a couple of times I did skip some pages...
Slow and not anything that would make me want to stay up all night and continue to read. Good story line though.
I loved the Cedar Cove series and was disappointed when it ended but now we have the Rose Harbor Inn series which is set in Cedar Cove. I am elated! Many of the characters who have lived in Cedar Cove make cameo appearances in this series that I fee like I'm home. If you loved Debbie's CC series then you will love this one. This is the second book in the series.
