Book Description


Debbie Macomber’s heartwarming new series, set at the Rose Harbor Inn in  picturesque Cedar Cove, displays the author’s signature talent for creating characters who feel like friends, and small towns that feel like home. In this original short story available exclusively as an eBook, Jo Marie Rose readies her inn for spring, turning to her new friends Grace and Olivia when she needs them most.
Jo Marie has big plans for her bed-and-breakfast. With the help of handyman Mark Taylor, she intends to plant a beautiful rose garden in time for her upcoming open house. Jo Marie and Mark rarely see eye to eye—especially on matters of home improvement—but she knows he has her best interests at heart. After the two walk the grounds, Jo Marie realizes that her beloved rescue dog, Rover, is missing, and at a time when she most needs a friend, Mark abruptly leaves. Confused by Mark’s behavior and worried for Rover’s safety, Jo Marie searches for her precious pup all over Cedar Cove. Rover is on an adventure of his own—one that will lead to a delightful surprise for two unlikely people.
Includes an excerpt from Debbie Macomber's Last One Home.
Also from Debbie Macomber: watch the new original series Cedar Cove on Hallmark Channel, Saturdays at 8:00/7:00c, starting July 20.
Praise for The Inn at Rose Harbor
“Charming . . . warm and serene . . . a wonderful novel.”—Bookreporter
“[An] emotionally charged romance.”Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews Review

Since I'm among friends, I'm willing to admit that romance goddess Debbie Macomber's charming new story requires at least two tissues and as many glasses of wine. Lost and Found in Cedar Cove brings back Jo Marie Rose: a small-town B&B owner and the heroine of Macomber's novels The Inn at Rose Harbor and the forthcoming Rose Harbor in Bloom. Recently widowed by her soldier husband, Jo Marie takes solace in her new business and faithful new companion, a stray dog named Rover. During a visit from the gruff handyman who reluctantly helps fix up the inn--especially when Jo Marie has a fresh batch of cookies on hand--Rover disappears. Determined to find him, his heartbroken owner braves a rainstorm and her own fragility, reaching out to everyone she knows to ask for help. Intertwined with a budding romance between two high schoolers from very different circles, Jo Marie's search for Rover is a quiet reminder that connections happen when you least expect them--and support from your community can help you weather any storm. --Mia Lipman

1.0 out of 5 stars Five Pages Does Not a Short Story Make July 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Chapter One captured my interest immediately. I have read some of Debbie Macomber's other books and was looking forward to an enjoyable, though short story of 48 pages, and was shocked when it suddenly ended after 5 pages! It seemed as though Chapter 1 would not have ended at that point. The next page showed a photo advertisement for the Cedar Cove Hallmark Series. I hoped that, perhaps, the photo was an insert and the remaining 43 pages would appear, but such was not the case. This book did not cost the typical amount for one of this fine author's books, but I cannot afford to spend the amount charged for 5 pages. I hope that, somehow, there was a mistake in the printing or production and this was delivered in such an abbreviated form because of an error. I am grateful to say that I have never experienced this in any of my previous orders and hope that such will never occur again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction to Cedar Cove July 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As often as I've seen Debbie Macomber's name on the bestseller lists, I admit that "Lost and Found in Cedar Cove" was my introduction to her work. In the story, Rose Harbor Inn owner Jo Marie and her handyman Mark Taylor were both likeable characters (okay, Mark was a bit of a curmudgeon, but he has a lot of potential). They'll get along just fine as long as Jo Marie keeps feeding him her homemade cookies. On the younger side, Amanda and Travis, high school seniors, didn't appear to have anything in common, but he needed to graduate to be able to play college football, and she was the best tutor around. The two couples' stories are tied together by the sudden disappearance of Jo Marie's beloved dog, Rover, with consequences that none of them could have predicted.

I enjoyed the story very much, and I liked Ms. Macomber's easy writing style. There was enough suspense about Rover's disappearance to keep me turning the pages of my Kindle until the ending, which was very satisfying.

Now that I've been introduced to Cedar Cove and some of its characters, I think I'll be back for more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too short, too predictable
While I like this series and the characters, I found this short story to be shallow and formulaic. There was potential, but it disappointed.

I paid for this little tease about Cedar Cove...not sure what the point was. I feel kinda ripped off and reluctant to follow this series any further.

This was more like an article or the first chapter of a book. I don't like when authors do this because as soon as you get interested in the story or the characters, it's over!! Read more
