Looking for a book that will make you feel warm and fuzzy? Cottage by the Sea is just what this book blogger orders.

Annie Marlow has been through the worst. Rocked by tragedy, she heads to the one place that makes her happy, Oceanside in the Pacific Northwest. Once there, Annie begins to restore her broken spirit, thanks in part to the people she meets.

I loved how this book started! I was drawn in from the very beginning and stayed glued to the pages until the very end.

A Debbie Macomber book means a sweet romance. This time Macomber brings us the story of Annie and Keaton. This couple was so sweet and I loved them. I think the happily ever after comes too fast, but the journey was enjoyable.

What I loved most about this book were the additional cast of characters Annie meets in Oceanside. Her neighbor and landlord, Mellie; Britt, a patient of hers and more. Each of these characters is developed nicely and their stories engaging if just a bit predictable.

Sometimes a good epilogue can get me past the feeling that the happily ever was too fast. With a good look ahead, I’m given an assurance that they really are living the happily ever after. Debbie delivers that here and I closed the book with a smile on my face because I knew everyone I met in Oceanside was indeed happy.
