Aug. 14 2012 Random House Large Print
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber comes the first book in a new series set in the beloved Pacific Northwest town of Cedar Cove.
Also from Debbie Macomber: watch the new original series Cedar Cove on Hallmark Channel, Saturdays at 8:00/7:00c, starting July 20.

From #1 New York Times bestselling 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 twenty years, she almost wishes she hadn’t come, the picturesque town harboring 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.
A touching novel of life’s grand possibilities and the heart’s ability to heal, The Inn at Rose Harbor is a welcome introduction to an unforgettable set of friends.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time March 4 2013
Format:Audio CD
Such a ridiculous drag: vocabulary pompous and inadequate, plot terribly predictable, characters lame and with childish dilemmas that are being repeated over and over, as if the reader were a very stupid or Alzheimer stricken individual.
I have all the respect for Random House Audio, but I do believe they should start looking at new writers as opposed to pushing forward dusty puerile novels just because they are written by famous authors.
I made it to the end of the second CD, and all because of Lorelei King, the narrator.
The book is torture.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cozy Read Sept. 13 2012
By J. Scully TOP 500 REVIEWER
They say never to make a major life change after the loss of a loved one. But there’s nothing left for Jo Marie in Seattle, and when she sees the B&B for the first time, she knows that this is where she needs to be. So she takes the plunge and starts her life over as the proprietor of a charming bed and breakfast in the small town of Cedar Cove. With absolutely no experience running a B&B, Jo Marie relies on the kindness of the townsfolk to guide her on her way. As she learns the ropes and hosts her first guests, Jo Marie realizes that the Rose Harbor Inn may just be the perfect place to heal a wounded soul.

The Inn at Rose Harbor is a heart-warming tale about grief, loss and recovery. Set in a small town filled with lovable characters, it’s easy to see how fans of Debbie Macomber’s past novels came to fall in love with Cedar Cove and it’s townsfolk. As a newcomer to Cedar Cove and Macomber’s work, I already want to know many of these characters better! The Inn at Rose Harbor is a little slow moving in comparison to my usual action-packed fantasy reads, but the emotion and the connection between the characters make it a story that’s hard to put down. I’ll even admit to tearing up a few times!

Each chapter of The Inn at Rose Harbor is told from a different character’s point of view, switching between Jo Marie and her two guests Abby and Josh. This method is very effective for giving the reader insight into each of the characters personal battles, but the switch between 1st person narrative for Jo Marie’s chapters and 3rd person for Abby & Josh’s chapters disrupts the flow of the story. My only other issue with the story is that it seemed a bit repetitive at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great new series July 13 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I have been on a Debbie Macomber kick this summer, having had a major back surgery and thus plenty of downtime. My kindle is loaded up with Macomber stories I have read.

This new series seems a little different from the Cedar Cove Series. The previous series set in this location had a multitude of characters especially in the initial book. Most of the characters were introduced in the first book and subsequent books followed one of the characters or families.

The Inn at Rose Harbor has 3 main characters. The new owner of the Inn is Jo Marie, who is recently widowed and has come to cedar cove for a new start. Her first two guests each have their own issues and it seems to me that their stories are wrapped up by the end of the book.

The first two guests have come back to Cedar Cove reluctantly and each has their own reasons. Josh has come back to help out with his dying step father. He goes through a rehash of his horrible relationship with the older man. In the process he strikes up a friendship with his former next door neighbor

Abby Kincaid had come back for her brother's wedding but she too is battling issues from her past. She is afraid to face her former high school friends because she had been driving when her best friend was killed in a black ice accident.

The book alternates easily between the three characters. It is kind of fun to see Jo Marie interact briefly with some of the old Cedar Cove characters.

I enjoyed this book a lot and finished it much too quickly. I look forward to the next one. At the end of this book Jo Maria accepts reservations from two new characters who are arriving the same weekend obviously laying the groundwork for the next edition.

This is the first book Debbie has written since the tragic death of her son last August. I sense sadness in this book, as well as an appreciation for the complexities surrounding sudden death and the aftermath for families and friends. In fact, untimely death and grief play an important role for each main character.

There is also a certain amount of mysticism in the story as the characters communicate, each in their own way, with their deceased love ones. To me it shows the way that Debbie and her family as well as the characters are dealing with their grief.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow to start, but I was totally engrossed at the end. July 7 2012
By Cynthia E. Downes - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I've read just about every Debbie Macomber book publishes so I was glad to have the opportunity to review this new book, The Inn at Rose Harbor.

The story is about Jo Marie Rose, a widow, who has just arrived in Cedar Cover to run a bed and breakfast. Her first guests are Joshua Weaver and Abby Kincaid. Joshua has come to collect a few family mementos from his stepfather, a man who chased him out of his home when he was a senior in high school. Joshua is angry and bitter and wants nothing more than get his stuff and run.

Abby, who has not been home for 20 years, has returned for her brother's wedding. She is dealing with painful memories of a friend who was killed in an automobile accident in which Abby was the driver. She, too, only wants to do what she has to do and then get out of town. However, things don't always work out as planned and that's what this story is about.

At the beginning of the book, I almost gave up. The theme was depressing - all these people grieving over deaths of loved ones. The story starts slow and doesn't speed up for quite a while, which made it even harder. But I enjoy Debbie's writing, so I kept going and finally got interested in the characters about 1/2 way through the book. By the end of the book, I was hooked, so much so that I shed quite a few tears at the end of the book.

I'm glad I pushed myself to finish the book. It's not the most exciting story I ever read; however, the story was satisfying and I'm already looking forward to the next one in the series.

If you enjoy Debbie Macomber books, you'll want to read this one as well. Just be patient. I think you'll enjoy it if you give it a chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great start to another series by Macomber July 10 2012

I was so excited to see a new series by Macomber; she is one of my favorite authors. This first book in her new series was a breath of fresh air during this hot humid summer.
The series is set in Cedar Cove but the characters are new. Jo Marie Rose has moved there upon the death of her husband after purchasing a Bed & Breakfast. Story lines were developed around two guests that checked into the B&B. They were heartwarming stories of families and relationships. I especially liked that the ending made it clear that this is a series and I can look forward to more books in the series.

By Virginia Campbell - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I am a great Debbie Macomber fan, and I knew that I would love "The Inn at Rose Harbor"--I just didn't know how much I would love it! I was immediately and deeply affected by the character of Jo Marie Rose, and the terrible loss of her husband so soon after her marriage. Adding extra poignancy to the story was the tragic real-life death of a young, newly-married soldier in my home community. He was also killed while on active duty. I had just seen his picture, and then the follow-up story on his memorial service. I cried for the immeasurable loss of this handsome, well-loved young man. Debbie captured the feeling perfectly in "The Inn at Rose Harbor". Jo Marie's grief, her struggle to accept the loss of her husband and cope with the unexpectedly large bequest of his life insurance policy all combine to set the framework for the series. Jo Marie's courage in going forward and making the life-changing decision to become a business owner is inspiring. Instead of turning inward to become lost in her pain, she chooses a business which will necessitate daily positive contact with others. I must say that as much as I have enjoyed Debbie's previous works, there is an added depth and spirit to this book. Debbie is amazing, and just keeps getting better! In this book, she takes a look back, but she definitely moves forward with new characters and story lines that will keep us happily read. I have long thought of owning my own B&B, only mine would be nestled in the beautiful setting of my own little vineyard. However, I would love to visit Jo Marie Rose, and stay a while at "The Inn at Rose Harbor". The hostess, the setting, and the guests are most inviting and intriguing. I look forward to return visits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Aug. 20 2012
By Jan Fortuno - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read every book by Debbie and was really looking forward to this latest book. I was very disappointed.
All of her other books have characters that are lively and involved in their community and each other.
I found these characters shallow and very self involved. I kept checking to make sure I was reading
the right book as this does not seem like a book this author would write. If I didn't know better I would
say that this is her first book. Perhaps it is and she has updated it. I won't give up on her but I was very
disappointed in this one.
