Review: When First They Met by Debbie Macomber (e-book)

When First They Met by Debbie Macomber
Ballentine Books
June 2012
Format: e-book, 27 pages

First line: I've always been a big football enthusiast.

Synopsis from B&N: Debbie Macomber’s Blossom Street and Cedar Cove series have won thousands of fans, thanks to her signature blend of heartfelt romance, delightful humor, and warm wisdom. 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.

My thoughts: This is the prequel to Debbie Macomber's new series, Rose Harbor Inn. It's a very short story that gives us the background story to the upcoming new series about a small Bed & Breakfast located in Cedar Cove! We are introduced to Jo Marie and her lightning quick relationship with soon-to-be husband Paul. I am looking forward to reading this series and am hoping, as a huge fan of the Cedar Cove series, that we will get updates on those characters we came to know and love. I love the idea of Jo Marie starting a Bed and Breakfast and hope that along with getting to know her and her guests, that we will also be given some good recipes.
