BOOK: The Inn at Rose Harbor
AUTHOR: Debbie Macomber
PUBLISHER: Bantam (Random House Aust)
RRP: $32.95

DEBBIE Macomber is a leading voice in women's fiction, topping the charts on the bestseller lists and with 150 million copies of her books in print worldwide.

Seeking solace from the death of her beloved husband of only one year, Paul, Jo Marie purchases a bed-and-breakfast in the town of Cedar Cove, re-christening it Rose Harbour Inn.

Coping with her own grief, she is determined that guests at her Inn would be warmly welcomed, whatever their needs.

But she is not prepared for visitors harbouring a haunted past. Reconnecting with family and friends, Jo Marie's guests, Joshua Weaver and Abby Kincaid realize that letting go of painful memories and true forgiveness is their only way forward.

This is a warm and cosy read that tugs at the heartstrings, with love and redemption blooming when it is least expected.
