The Inn at Rose Harbor

The Inn at Rose Harbor Book Cover

I am a Debbie Macomber super fan. The Rose Harbor Series has been my favorite out of all of the books I have read so far. The series is a follow up of the longer Cedar Cove series, but this is not necessary to read that series first! In the first book, The Inn at Rose Harbor, we meet Jo Marie Barlow who is seeking comfort from losing her husband. She purchased the bed and breakfast with her inheritance money (and named it after her husband) in a small town after living in Seattle for years. Rose Marie soon finds that the inn not only brings peace to her but to others that stay there. Each book features new guests staying at the inn and their stories. I hope you enjoy Cedar Cove, Jo Marie, and the small town / family dramas and love that I was drawn to in this fast paced, light five book series.

Cinnamon and gunpowder

Cinnamon and gunpowder Book Cover

Funny, adventurous, odd, dark; hard to put this one in a box which is why you should read it. A humorous tale about a female pirate’s adventures told through the eyes of her captive, a rather timid chef.
