SILVER LININGS by Debbie Macomber Audio Edition
For this reader/listener enjoyment is enhanced when a new story appears filled with familiar characters and places. And, that pleasure is even greater when said characters are real, likable people to whom we can relate. Such is certainly the case with Debbie Macomber’s Silver Linings. I looked forward to it with happy anticipation, and was not at all disappointed.
What a pleasure it is to return to the community of Cedar Cove and the delightfully homey Rose Harbor Inn, especially as narrated by the ever capable Lorelei King and Debbie Macomber. It is a welcome story for all of us - to be reminded that every cloud usually has a silver lining even though at first that silver may appear a bit tarnished.
Since opening Rose Harbor innkeeper Jo Marie Rose has grown close to her somewhat unknowable handyman, Mark Taylor. He has told her absolutely nothing about his past, and she is disappointed as well as confused when he says that he is moving out of town. And while Jo Marie is dealing with her own disappointment two visitors arrive who are also seeking solace and answers
Kellie Crenshaw and Katie Gilroy are best friends who have returned to Cedar Cove for their ten-year high school reunion. For them this reunion is not just about seeing old friends - Kellie wants to face a boy who once spurned her breaking her heart, Katie wants to reconnect with a former boyfriend, James, the man she still loves.
Now, remember the title of the story is Silver Linings so listen and see how things work out.
