My 2 cents:
Rose Harbor in Bloom fills out the Rose Harbor Inn books beautifully. Second in the series, Debbie Macomber's newest novel blossoms like spring flowers in Washington's lovely Cedar Cove.
It's May in the small Pacific Northwest harbor town, and Jo Marie Rose is preparing an Open House to introduce the community to her new bed and breadfast inn. She's still grappling with the death of her husband, while getting the inn up and running, and making all those delicious breakfasts.
Macomber's faithful fans will enjoy meeting a new set of guests at the inn, including a couple about to celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary, but who can't seem to get along for five minutes; their young granddaughter who's putting the big party all together; and a successful business executive and cancer survivor who's traveled west to wrestle with her past.
Length: 322 pages
Worth Your Time? Yes. Macomber's tried-and-true combination of old characters woven together with new ones will delight her legions of fans. Rose Harbor in Bloom will be on bookshelves 8/13/13.
