(From the publisher):
Jo Marie Rose first arrives in Cedar Cove seeking a sense of peace and a fresh start. Coping with the death of her husband, the young war widow purchases a local bed-and-breakfast-the newly christened Rose Harbor Inn-ready to begin her life anew. Yet the inn holds more surprises than Jo Marie can imagine.
Her first guest is Joshua Weaver who has come home to care for his wiling stepfather. The two have never seen eye to eye, and Joshua has little home that they can reconcile their differences. But a long-lost acquaintance from Joshua's high school days proves to him that forgiveness is never out of reach and that love can bloom even where it's least expected.
Jo Marie's other guest is Abby Kincaid, who has returned to Cedar Cove to attend her brother's wedding. Back for the first time in twenty years, she almost wishes she hadn't come, the picturesque town harboring painful memories. While Abby reconnects with family and old friends, she realizes that she can move on only if she truly allows herself to let go.
