Rose Harbor in Bloom is the second book in Debbie Macomber’s Rose Harbor series. It is a story about second chances and how finding yourself can mean a deeper and richer life. Jo Marie Rose is the owner of a bed and breakfast inn in Cedar Cove that she bought when her husband passed away in Afganistan. This is a place for her to heal while caring for her guests. She has two guests that need her tender love and care so won’t she find happiness?
Mary Smith has just been diagnosed with cancer. She comes to Cedar Cove because the feeling of regret and lost love is so intense she has to be near the ones that she has lost. Can she reveal her secrets and find love again?
Annie Newton is in town to help celebrate her grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary. She has planned this celebration while staying busy after her broken engagement. Oliver, an old friend, is driving her grandparents up to Cedar Cove and will be attending the party also, unbeknownst to Annie. Will Annie realize Oliver wants the best for her before it is too late?
I enjoyed the way Debbie wove these three different stories together. As the owner of the inn Jo Marie speaks in first person to tell her story.
This book can be read as a standalone book, but if you have read the first book you will be surprised seeing other friends show up.
