Sweet Tomorrows: A Rose Harbor Novel
By Debbie Macomber
Ballantine Books, 2016. 337 pgs. Romance
Sweet Tomorrows is the final installment in Debbie Macomber’s Rose Harbor series. In this book, Jo Marie – owner of the Rose Harbor Inn – is recovering after the departure of her new love, Mark Taylor, who left Cedar Cove to right wrongs from his past career in the US military. Jo Marie has already lost one love to military combat, so she knows Mark’s chance of survival is slim. Just as Jo Marie seems to be following Mark’s parting request that she move on with her life, she receives some startling news.
The other half of Sweet Tomorrows, is about Emily Gaffney, a school teacher who’s forsaken love and moved to Cedar Cove to start her life over. Emily boards at the Rose Harbor Inn while house hunting, and with Jo Marie’s help she finds her dream home. Now Emily just needs to convince the handsome recluse who’s renovating the house that she is the perfect buyer.
Over the past five years, the release of each new Rose Harbor novel has become a ritual ending to my summer reading. So while I’m sad that this is the last of the series, I have to say that Sweet Tomorrows is a perfect ending. Debbie Macomber fans will not be disappointed.
