Hailed as “the reigning queen of women’s fiction” (The Sacramento Bee), Debbie Macomber is renowned for her novels of love, friendship, and the promise of fresh starts. Now Macomber returns to the charming Rose Harbor Inn, where each guest finds a second chance and every room comes with an inspiring new view.
Since moving to Cedar Cove, Jo Marie Rose has truly started to feel at home, and her neighbors have become her closest friends. Now it’s springtime, and Jo Marie is eager to finish the most recent addition to her inn. In memory of her late husband, Paul, she has designed a beautiful rose garden for the property and enlisted handyman Mark Taylor to help realize it. She and Mark don’t always see eye-to-eye—and at times he seems far removed—yet deep down, Jo Marie finds great comfort in his company. And while she still seeks a sense of closure, she welcomes her latest guests, who are on their own healing journeys.
Annie Newton arrives in town to orchestrate her grandparents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary celebration. While Annie is excited for the festivities, she’s struggling to move on from her broken engagement, and her grandparents themselves seem to be having trouble getting along. Worse, Annie is forced to see Oliver Sutton, with whom she grew up and who has always mercilessly teased her. But the best parties end with a surprise, and Annie is in for the biggest one of all.
High-powered businesswoman Mary Smith, another Rose Harbor Inn guest, has achieved incredible success in her field, yet serious illness has led her to face her sole, lingering regret. Almost nineteen years ago, she ended her relationship with her true love, George Hudson, and now she’s returned to Cedar Cove to make amends.
Compassion and joy await Jo Marie, Annie, and Mary as they make peace with their pasts and look boldly toward their futures. Rose Harbor in Bloom is Debbie Macomber at her heartwarming best.
Praise for Rose Harbor in Bloom “Takes readers on personal journeys of first love, lost love and recaptured love.”—Bookreporter
“A wonderful reading experience . . . as [the characters’] stories unfold, you almost feel they have become friends.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News
“Readers will find the emotionally impactful storylines and sweet, redemptive character arcs for which the author is famous. Classic Macomber, which will please fans and keep them coming back for more.”—Kirkus Reviews “Macomber’s legions of fans will embrace this cozy, heartwarming read.”—Booklist “Macomber uses warmth, humor and superb storytelling skills to deliver a tale that charms and entertains.”—BookPage
“[Macomber] draws in threads of her earlier book in this series, The Inn at Rose Harbor, in what is likely to be just as comfortable a place for Macomber fans as for Jo Marie’s guests at the inn.”—The Seattle Times “Macomber is an institution in women’s fiction. Her principal talent lies in creating characters with a humble, familiar charm. They possess complex personalities, but it is their kinder qualities that are emphasized in the warm world of her novels—a world much like Rose Harbor Inn, in which one wants to curl up and stay.”—Shelf Awareness

Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors. I love her books,especially her series. Having said that,I was very disappointed in this book. Difficult to explain, but it's just not up to Debbie"s quality of writing. The story is all over the place,the dialogue is stiff, and the book just abruptly ends. Quite honestly, the writing is very poor.
It took me a long time to finish this book because I really didn't care about what happened and I felt no connection whatsoever to any of the characters. There's not much to like about any of the characters.
The dialogue with teenagers is very odd. I don't know teens who use the vocabulary or speak in the manner these characters do. It's like the book is set in the 1950s ( which would be fine....but it's present day).
The main character,the Inn Keeper, is 36 yo, but she talks and acts like she's 56.
Biggest pet peeve: most overused phrases....she whispered and he/she murmured. Why...
I smiled and I cried when I read this latest book by Debbie Macomber. This story showed why I love her writing so much. She is able to weave such interesting and emotional stories together with such ease.
Rose Harbor Inn is a special place that draws in people who are facing difficult challenges in their lives. We have Jo Marie who deep downs doesn’t think her husband is dead and dreads the calls from his commanding officer about the recovery efforts for his body. We have Mary who is fighting breast cancer and wants to apologize to the love of her life for the decisions she made years ago. These stories and more are all woven around this beautiful inn located in Cedar Cove.
This book completely works as a standalone. I know this for a fact because I totally forgot to read the first book in this series. It didn’t seem to matter at all. I was able to step right into this world and become emotionally involved with these amazing characters. I will...
This is the second in Debbie Macomber's Rose Harbor series. Jo Marie is the innkeeper who is expecting guests who will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and some of their friends and family members and another woman with breast cancer who has unfinished business in the Seattle/Cedar Cove area.
In addition we see the return of the irascible but talented handyman, Mark. Jo Marie comes to his aid when he is pinned under a table in his shop.
For people who like romances, you will not be disappointed. If you are looking for explicit, thrust by thrust sex, you will need to look for another book. Personally, I liked this book. It did drag n some parts but overall, it was a very enjoyable read. Although this is a series, I think that the book could be read as a standalone without too much confusion on the part of the reader.
