Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Set in Cedar Cove’s charming Rose Harbor Inn, Debbie Macomber’s captivating new novel follows innkeeper Jo Marie and two new guests as they seek healing and comfort, revealing that every cloud has a silver lining, even when it seems difficult to find.
 
Since opening the Rose Harbor Inn, Jo Marie Rose has grown close to her handyman, Mark Taylor. Jo Marie and Mark are good friends—and are becoming something more—yet he still won’t reveal anything about his past. When Mark tells her that he’s moving out of town, Jo Marie is baffled. Just when she is starting to open herself up again to love, she feels once more that she is losing the man she cares about. And as she discovers the secret behind Mark’s decision to leave, she welcomes two visitors also seeking their own answers.
 
Best friends Kellie Crenshaw and Katie Gilroy have returned to Cedar Cove for their ten-year high school reunion, looking to face down old hurts and find a sense of closure. Kellie, known as Coco, wants to finally confront the boy who callously broke her heart. Katie, however, wishes to reconnect with her old boyfriend, James—the man she still loves and the one who got away. As Katie hopes for a second chance, Coco discovers that people can change—and both look to the exciting possibilities ahead.
 
Heartwarming and uplifting, Silver Linings is a beautiful novel of letting go of the past and embracing the unexpected.

    Liked the Mark part best. Cedar Cove was a fine place. I lived in Seattle for 12 years and recognized all the places mentioned. Fred Ribe

    Silver Linings was a good read. The characters are believable and the story moves along at a good pace. When the book ended I was taken by surprise.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the Rose Harbor series. It's as comforting as a cup of tea. Facing the past, making plans for the future, and living for now are all obstacles many of the characters must face. Each deals in her own way, and there is grace for those who make peace. I recommend this book!

    The characters seem a bit unrealistic (I'm the same age as two of the women, and I'm not buying it). Also, Mark is moving because of unrequited love? Yeah, I don't think so. I really wanted to like this book. I definitely have a soft spot for the inn keeper ideal, and I was looking for an uplifting book... But this just isn't it.
  • Just OK

    I generally love Debbie Macomber books and they are my go to for uplifting reads. This one is ok with a love lost/gained theme that many of us can identify with in the characters. I found the character development and their actions to be a bit unbelievable and rushed. Same happy ending except for what is to come with Mark but somehow lacking in depth.
  • Disappointing

    Normally love Debbie Macomber's books, but this one read like a young adult storybook. It Certainly wasn't up to her usual writing and I even skipped through a lot of parts due to boredom. Sorry I purchased it.

    I truly love this book as much as all the Cedar Cove books. This one had me crying thru much of the book, either crying from sadness or crying from happiness . I read it in one setting and now I wish I would of read it slower. But please please WHY did it have to end the way it did ? Tap tap tap patiently waiting for the next one, because no way she would leave it like that !!!!

    It seems to start slowly but be patien- it is worth the wait. A beautiful story of compassion and forgiveness in the flow of life and love . Weaving of old and new friends, cruel mistakes and loving resolution.
