Keep the tissues close by as you are reading WINDOW ON THE BAY by Debbie Macomber. She will have your emotions all over the place. Once I started reading, it was very hard to stop! The twists and turns made it impossible to put down, as I had to know what was going to happen to Maureen and Jenna after so much heartache! What an awesome story. All of Debbie’s characters feel genuine and relatable and put your emotions on one heck of a roller coaster ride. As you are reading, you will find yourself cheering for all of them, praying they can work out their problems and be happy once again. You will also wonder how much heartbreak a person can stand before they completely break down and shatter.
WINDOW ON THE BAY is all about family and the past and the secrets that come out are heart tugging. It had me flipping through the pages like a woman on a mission. Jenna is a single mom to two after a nasty divorce. She has turned into a complete helicopter mom and is driving her kids crazy! Maureen is the single mom of one daughter and they are both empty nesters now. They decide to finally plan their trip to Paris that they have wanted to go to since they were in college. But life has other plans for them. Neither one of them is looking for love, but doesn’t it always seem to find you when you aren’t looking? WINDOW ON THE BAY is a heart tugging story that will hold you hostage until the very last page. Once you start reading, it will be very hard to put down!
WINDOW ON THE BAY is without a doubt one of the most memorable books I’ve read in 2019 so far. I was instantly emotionally invested in all of the characters. Debbie Macomber really knows how to write about family drama, heartbreak, and forgiveness. I will admit that Maureen drove me crazy with her silly way of thinking. I loved Logan and felt bad for him when Maureen kept pushing him away for the stupidest reasons. I mean, come on, these are grown women not teenagers! I can not wait to read more by this wonderful and heart tugging author. I have many of her older books to read and that brings me so much joy and happiness to know they are waiting for me!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Ballantine Books through Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
When a single mom becomes an empty nester, she spreads her wings to rediscover herself–and her passions–in this heartwarming novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
Jenna Boltz’s life is at a crossroads. After a messy divorce from her surgeon husband nearly twenty years ago, she raised her two children on her own, juggling motherhood with her beloved job as a Seattle intensive-care nurse. Now that Paul and Allie have gone to college and moved out, Jenna can’t help but wonder what her future holds.
Her best friend, Maureen, is excited for Jenna’s newfound independence. Now is the perfect time to finally book the trip to Paris they’ve been dreaming of since their college days. But when it comes to life’s other great adventure–dating–Jenna still isn’t sure she’s ready to let love in . . . until an unexpected encounter begins to change her mind.
When Jenna’s elderly mother breaks her hip, Dr. Rowan Lancaster saves the day. Despite his silent, stoic exterior, Rowan is immediately smitten with Jenna. And even though Jenna is hesitant about becoming involved with another surgeon, she has to admit that she’s more than a little intrigued. But when Jenna’s children approach her with shocking news, she realizes that she needs to have faith in love and embrace the unexpected–before the life she has always dreamed of passes her by.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!💜
