In this enchanting novel set at Cedar Cove's cozy Rose Harbor Inn, 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.

Praise for Love Letters

"Romance and a little mystery abound in this third installment of Macomber's series set at Cedar Cove's Rose Harbor Inn. . . . Readers of Robyn Carr and Sherryl Woods will enjoy Macomber's latest, which will have them flipping pages until the end and eagerly anticipating the next installment." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"Mending a broken heart is not always easy to do, but Macomber succeeds at this beautifully in Love Letters . . . . Quite simply, this is a refreshing take on most love stories--there are twists and turns in the plot that keep readers on their toes--and the author shares up slices of realism, allowing her audience to feel right at home." -- Bookreporter

"Macomber's mastery of women's fiction is evident in her latest. . . . She] breathes life into each plotline, carefully intertwining her characters' stories to ensure that none of them overshadow the others. Yet it is her ability to capture different facets of emotion which will entrance fans and newcomers alike." -- Publishers Weekly

" Love Letters is another wonderful story in the Rose Harbor series. Genuine life struggles with heartwarming endings for the three couples in this book make it special. Readers won't be able to get enough of Macomber's gentle storytelling. Fans already know what a charming place Rose Harbor is and new readers will love discovering it as well." -- RT Book Reviews (4-1/2 stars)

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The third entry in Macomber's best-selling Rose Harbor series finds innkeeper Jo Marie repeatedly telling her friends and neighbors that Mark is merely the inn's handyman, and she's not interested in him outside of how quickly he can put up a new gazebo. But she ends up thinking more and more about the reclusive man and eventually starts poking around in his past. Tensions rise when Mark discovers Jo Marie's probing and doesn't like it one bit. Meanwhile, new guests arrive at the inn, bringing their own troubled pasts along with them. Ellie is there to meet a man she only knows via Facebook, while Maggie and Roy have booked a weekend as a last-ditch effort to save their failing marriage. Loads of secrets abound, families are brought together while others are torn apart, and, of course, love conquers all in the end. As per usual, Macomber's fans will be lining up to see what happens in this gentle and heartwarming read, and they won't be disappointed.--Vnuk, Rebecca Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Prolific author Macomber's mastery of women's fiction is evident in her latest (following Blossom Street Brides). Jo Marie Rose is the proprietor of Rose Harbor Inn, a bed-and-breakfast in Cedar Cove, Wash. Jo Marie has been taking solace in her work at the Inn since her husband died two years ago. Maggie and Roy Porter are planning an anniversary weekend at Rose Harbor, to be paid for by Roy's parents. Sheltered young Eleanor "Ellie" Reynolds also reserves a room, only to cancel and then rebook her reservation. While preparing for the weekend, Jo Marie tries to learn something about her gruff handyman Mark Taylor's past. But after meeting her guests, she realizes that satisfying her curiosity will be the least of her worries. Ellie is meeting a man against her mother's wishes, and Roy Porter doesn't appear to be enjoying his "idyllic" getaway. Macomber breathes life into each plotline, carefully intertwining her characters' stories to ensure that none of them overshadow the others. Yet it is her ability to capture different facets of emotion which will entrance fans and newcomers alike. Agent: Theresa Park, Park Literary Group. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
