Since moving to Cedar Cove, Jo Marie Rose has truly started to feel at home, and her neighbors have become her closest friends. Now it’s springtime, and Jo Marie is eager to finish the most recent addition to her inn. In memory of her late husband, Paul, she has designed a beautiful rose garden for the property and enlisted handyman Mark Taylor to help realize it. She and Mark don’t always see eye-to-eye—and at times he seems far removed—yet deep down, Jo Marie finds great comfort in his company. And while she still seeks a sense of closure, she welcomes her latest guests, who are on their own healing journeys.

My Review:

I enjoyed this visit back to the Rose Harbor Inn, where Jo Marie is trying to get her Rose Garden completed in time for her Open House and she also has lots of guests arriving at her Inn!  Some of the guests are there for a 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration which is being organized by Annie Newton. Annie is enjoying all the plans for the Anniversary Party but when Oliver Sutton shows up 
( a old friend of hers )...she is not sure whether or not they are going to get along...but you never know what might happen!
   I enjoyed the part where Jo Marie climbed up on a ladder and her Handyman ( Mark ) tried to warn her not to, sometimes they dont get along... but deep down Jo Marie feels like they could become friends.  Jo Marie is still grieving over losing her Husband, but knows that eventually she will start dating again.
One of the Inn's Guests is going thru some serious health issues, and enjoys the peacefulness of the Inn and its surroundings.  While she is at the Inn, she is trying to decide whether to "look up " an old friend....he has been on her mind alot but she is not sure what his reaction will be from hearing from her.
  I enjoy all of the interesting characters from this story, and I look forward to the next book in this series!
