Falling for Her by Debbie Macomber----A review

Nothing is as good as being totally comfortable with an author's work....knowing you will like what they have to say and that you will enjoy the pacing, the storyline and the genre.   Debbie Macomber is one of my go to authors.

If I am out of sorts, feeling down, or overwhelmed by some of the suspense and thriller books I read, I can pick up a Macomber book and feel a whole lot better about life in general.

At only 40 pages, Macomber's Falling for Her e-book had that effect on me.   Check it out.


Debbie Macomber’s beloved Rose Harbor series follows Jo Marie as she makes her home in Cedar Cove, running the charming Rose Harbor Inn. Now, in this original short story, available exclusively as an eBook, Macomber tells a whole new side of the story as handyman Mark Taylor grapples with his true feelings for Jo Marie.  

Mark Taylor came to Cedar Cove to leave his painful past behind him, and has spent the last few years keeping mostly to himself. But when he meets Jo Marie Rose, his world is turned upside down. She’s hired him to do carpentry projects around the inn, but for Mark, spending time with Jo Marie is a risk—to both his long-buried secrets and his carefully guarded heart. Then one day, he breaks his leg in his workshop and must turn to Jo Marie for help. And though he tries to keep his distance, Mark can’t deny how he feels drawn to Jo Marie—and how deeply he is falling for her. 


Macomber writes romance and women's fiction.    She writes best selling novels and her Cedar Cove series has been turned into a Hallmark channel t.v. series.  She has followed the Cedar Cove series with the Rose Harbor series.   Her  many followers and fans are delighted with the continuing story set in Cedar Cove, but focusing on Jo Marie, the innkeeper and Mark, her handyman.

In this short story, we get to see how Mark deals with his growing attraction to Jo Marie.   Once he realizes he has fallen for her, what will he do?   Can he handle a relationship?   Or will this end up being another disappointing relationship he can't come to terms with?   Macomber gives life to this crochety old handyman with a sour disposition and a heart of gold.

I enjoyed reading this short story, although I felt it ended rather abruptly.

I rated this short story a 4 Wink Read.
