3.5 stars. I won this from a Goodreads, first reads giveaway. Thanks to random house publishing for this copy.
I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this book. I've had a hard time with Debbie Macomber on her last few books. One of them even being a rose harbor novel.
This one was a sweet love story with three different stories. A couple and a girl come stay at the Inn for the weekend and their lives are transformed afterwards.
I was surprised how Jo Marie, the owner of the Inn, didn't catch onto Mark'a feelings for her. It was so obvious! Anyways, I'm wondering hep it will play out in the future, you know he won't leave.
I really liked the story of Maggie and Roy. I think this story is really made the book for me. I pretty much figured out what happened before it came to light and I give them a lot of credit to try and come back from their huge mistakes. Of course, no way it will be easy and I wasn't sure how it would play out in the end.
The story of Ellie was a little on the boring side for me. It's nice and all that she got to reunite with her father but I think there should have been a little more of a problem with Tom lying to her.
Anyways, I think this is one of the better books I've read by her. It was a quick read and the love letters were touching. Reading her intro to the book you get some of her own family history. Love letters are the best. I have one framed that my own husband wrote to me in college after I was in a car accident. Love letters are one of the most amazing ways to show your love.
