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.
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.Read more ›
I found myself drawn to Jo Marie from the moment I met her. Finding the strength to go on after losing so much was absolutely inspiring, and to do so while trying to help others went above and beyond. I liked the way that we get to see how different people’s lives intertwine in all different ways based on day to day activities. The fact that we get to know more than simply Jo Marie throughout is fantastic. Getting to know the guests at the inn so intimately made me feel like I was really part of the story, rather than simply someone looking in from the outside. And I loved the appearance of characters from Cedar Cove. It was so nostalgic for me, but at the same time, they appeared in such a way that they wouldn’t detract from the experience for new Macomber readers either.
Once again, Macomber held me captive throughout. She engaged me emotionally, tugging at my heart while also keeping me hooked with her absolutely delightful plot.
