"Silver Lining" by Debbie Macomber
This was the fourth in the Rose Harbor series featuring Jo Marie, Mark Taylor, Katie Gilroy and Co Co Crenshaw setting in Cedar Cove which continues the story of the 'Rose Harbor Inn.' This read will leave you with some high emotions where one may find themselves laughing to even finding some sad moments.
I liked how this author was able to give us a good story involving Jo Marie and her handy man, Mark which ended up with some surprise that will keep your attention turning the pages getting answers [wanting to know what is up with Mark]...oh well...I guess we will have to wait for that answer to just what secret is Mark keeping from Jo Marie?
Then there were Jo Marie's best friends Kellie and Katie who have return to Cedar Cove for their 10 year HS reunion. Would they be able to 'face down old hunts and find a sense of closure?' Now, to me I will say this was to me some what strange in how all that comes out but OK..with each one having a problem they hope to solve at this reunion. Now, will this happen...or will they leave this reunion with broken hearts?
All of this author's characters seem to come alive as the reader will be presented with such a well written story that will keep you turning the pages. This was quite a interesting read where you will find a story of 'letting go of the past and embracing the unexpected.' I did like the way this author was able to tie these three stories together where the reader will be able to see how they come together by the end of the read where they may find healing and comfort.
"Silver Lining" can be a standalone read but I think it's best to get the other three series for a better understanding of what has gone on earlier. If you are in for a read of love, forgiveness and second chances then you are at the right place and I would recommend this novel for you. Oh I don't want to tell you but I will...expect a cliffhanger ending!
I received a copy through NOR in exchange for an honest review.
