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 or at all. This book brings you into the community of Cedar Cove and the main character, Jo Marie. The small town / family dramas and personal growth are a few things that drew me into this fast paced, light five book series.Becca Lael, Community Engagement Librarian
