Short Story Review: Risking that this was a digital advertisement I bought When First They Met by Debbie Macomber. Though very short, it is an endearing story of how a couple met and fell in love. The story is an introduction to Ms. Macomber’s new series, the first book releases August 14. Included in this 99 cent download is a very short excerpt from The Inn at Rose Harbor. My only comment was that I regret reading the book excerpt. Enjoy the short story, noodle on it for a few weeks, and only read the book excerpt if you must.
Now, in this original short story available exclusively as an eBook, Macomber shares a sneak peek into her new series set in Cedar Cove, which features Jo Marie, before she becomes the owner of the beloved Rose Harbor Inn.
From the moment Jo Marie sits next to Paul inside the Seattle Seahawks’ stadium, she feels a spark. Paul’s striking blue eyes and kind smile tell her that he’s someone special—different from any man she’s met before. When they strike up a conversation, Jo Marie and Paul realize how much they have in common, yet there’s one thing keeping them from a fairy-tale ending: Paul is in the military and will ship out of Seattle within the next six weeks. As Jo Marie wonders if she should once again open her heart, she decides that, no matter the stakes, she can’t forgo her chance at true love.
Pre-order The Inn at Rose Harbor today for $12.99. Delivery is scheduled for August 14.
