Love Letters (Rose Harbor, #3) by Debbie Macomber







In this enchanting novel set at Cedar Cove’s cozy Rose Harbor Inn, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber celebrates the power of love—and a well-timed love letter—to inspire hope and mend a broken heart.

Summer is a busy season at the inn, so proprietor Jo Marie Rose and handyman Mark Taylor have spent a lot of time together keeping the property running. Despite some folks’ good-natured claims to the contrary, Jo Marie insists that Mark is only a friend. However, she seems to be thinking about this particular friend a great deal lately. Jo Marie knows surprisingly little about Mark’s life, due in no small part to his refusal to discuss it. She’s determined to learn more about his past, but first she must face her own—and welcome three visitors who, like her, are setting out on new paths.

Twenty-three-year-old Ellie Reynolds is taking a leap of faith. She’s come to Cedar Cove to meet Tom, a man she’s been corresponding with for months, and with whom she might even be falling in love. Ellie’s overprotective mother disapproves of her trip, but Ellie is determined to spread her wings.

Maggie and Roy Porter are next to arrive at the inn. They are taking their first vacation alone since their children were born. In the wake of past mistakes, they hope to rekindle the spark in their marriage—and to win back each other’s trust. But Maggie must make one last confession that could forever tear them apart.

For each of these characters, it will ultimately be a moment when someone wore their heart on their sleeve—and took pen to paper—that makes all the difference. Debbie Macomber’s moving novel reveals the courage it takes to be vulnerable, accepting, and open to love.

My Review





 I just finished the next book in the Rose Harbor Inn series, and of course, I want more. Jo Marie is still dealing with the loss of Paul, and Mark is still working as the neighborhood handyman, and being mysterious.
We are about to be involved in the lives of a few more of Jo Marie’s guests at the inn, and by the end we know them fairly well. You will feel the heartbreak of some of them, and the joy of others. It just feels so great to be back in the Cove, and we meet some of our old friends in a pass by visit, and although I would really like to catch up again in their lives, it just felt great to be with them again.
Loved the connecting theme between these stories, Love Letters, and how they played a part in the lives of these people. Letters that later in their lives have a huge impact on them. Will the letters be positive in how they are received or play a roll in ending their relationship?
I wish I was able to spend time on the deck at the Rose Harbor Inn, and cannot wait for the next book, and a slight preview was offered at the end of the book. Enjoy!

I received this book through Edelwiss, and was not required to give a positive review.
