Review of Lost and Found in Cedar Cove by Debbie Macomber

Synopsis: "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."

My Review: I am thinking this short story to the Rose Harbor series is meant to give some background and foreshadowing for upcoming books. I was a little confused as to the relevance of some of the characters and events. Though I still love the characters and this series, this one felt a little out of touch with what I have read so far in the series. With that said though, I rather enjoyed getting to know a couple of new characters that kind of reminded me of high school and the expectations the senior year held.
My Rating: I didn't enjoy this one as much as rest of the books I have read in the series so far (.5 &1) but I am looking forward to how these new characters and information will be used in the following books. I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.
