Review of Love Letters by Debbie Macomber

My Review: "In this enchanting novel set at Cedar Cove’s cozy Rose Harbor Inn, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber celebrates the power of love—and a well-timed love letter—to inspire hope and mend a broken heart.

Summer is a busy season at the inn, so proprietor Jo Marie Rose and handyman Mark Taylor have spent a lot of time together keeping the property running. Despite some folks’ good-natured claims to the contrary, Jo Marie insists that Mark is only a friend. However, she seems to be thinking about this particular friend a great deal lately. Jo Marie knows surprisingly little about Mark’s life, due in no small part to his refusal to discuss it. She’s determined to learn more about his past, but first she must face her own—and welcome three visitors who, like her, are setting out on new paths.

Twenty-three-year-old Ellie Reynolds is taking a leap of faith. She’s come to Cedar Cove to meet Tom, a man she’s been corresponding with for months, and with whom she might even be falling in love. Ellie’s overprotective mother disapproves of her trip, but Ellie is determined to spread her wings.

Maggie and Roy Porter are next to arrive at the inn. They are taking their first vacation alone since their children were born. In the wake of past mistakes, they hope to rekindle the spark in their marriage—and to win back each other’s trust. But Maggie must make one last confession that could forever tear them apart.

For each of these characters, it will ultimately be a moment when someone wore their heart on their sleeve—and took pen to paper—that makes all the difference. Debbie Macomber’s moving novel reveals the courage it takes to be vulnerable, accepting, and open to love."

My Review: Ack! How dare you end the book like this!! I don't know if I will be able to stand the wait for the next book hahaha! So as you can imagine this next book in the Rose Harbor series grabbed me as much as the first one did and I am in emotional turmoil. Love Letters had a lot of ups and downs and emotionally gripping characters and storylines. Sometimes Macomber's writing can get a little flat for me, especially some of the earlier works, but this one kept my interest, I wanted to keep turning the pages. Though it ended with a big shocker and rather abruptly, I think it was the perfect length. Now I am just going to have to distract myself until the next book comes out.
My Rating: I enjoyed this installment in the series but the conclusion is killing me! I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
