Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A seaside town helps one young woman reclaim the light after darkness in a brand-new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

“Romantic, warm, and a breeze to read—one of Macomber’s best.”—Kirkus Reviews

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, the destination of many family vacations when Annie was a teenager.
   
Once there, Annie begins to restore her broken spirit, thanks in part to the folks she meets: a local painter, Keaton, whose large frame is equal to his big heart—and who helps Annie fix up her rental cottage by the sea; Mellie, the reclusive, prickly landlord Annie is determined to befriend; and Britt, a teenager with a terrible secret. But it is Keaton to whom Annie feels most drawn. His quiet, peaceful nature offers her both comfort and reprieve from her grief, and the two begin to grow closer.

Then events threaten to undo the idyll Annie has come to enjoy. And when the opportunity of a lifetime lands in her lap, she is torn between the excitement of a new journey toward success and the safe and secure arms of the haven—and the man—she’s come to call home.

In this heartwarming tale, Annie finds that the surest way to fix what is damaged within is to help others rise above their pain and find a way to heal.

Praise for Cottage by the Sea

“Macomber never disappoints. Tears and laughter abound in this story of loss and healing that will wrap you up and pull you in; readers will finish it in one sitting.”—Library Journal (starred review)
 
“Macomber’s patented recipe of idyllic small-town life with a touch of romance is sure to result in a summer best-seller.”—Booklist
 
“Macomber’s story of tragedy and triumph is emotionally engaging from the outset and ends with a satisfying conclusion. Readers will be most taken by the characters, particularly Annie, a heartwarming lead who bolsters the novel.”—Publishers Weekly

About the Author

How many people follow the dream they had as a child growing up? American Women's Fiction and Romance novelist, Debbie Macomber did just that. She realized that it was her dream to become a writer from the time she was in fourth grade. She did not act upon that dream (for fear of rejection) until she was 30 years old, and the mother of four children. She submitted many manuscripts, but all were rejected. She attended a romance writers conference, where one of her manuscripts, Heartsong, was selected to be critiqued by an editor from Harlequin Enterprises, Inc. Of course, that editor ripped her work to shreds with his criticism, and recommended she throw it away! Instead, she gathered the $10 fee and submitted the same manuscript to Harlequin's competitor, Silhouette Books. They published the manuscript, and Macomber's illustrious writing career began in earnest.

Debbie Macomber overcame her dyslexia to become one of the most prolific authors of romance novels. She sat in her kitchen, with four children, tapping out her work on an ordinary typewriter. At her peak writing, she was releasing two or three titles per year, with her first hardcover novel being released in 2001.

Most women today are very familiar with Macomber's current works, especially those that have been made into Hallmark Channel movies and series. The Christmas movies.......Debbie Macomber's Mrs. Miracle, Call Me Mrs. Miracle, and Trading Christmas.....have become iconic Christmas features. The Cedar Cove series was also a hit with not only Debbie Macomber fans, but Hallmark fans in general.

Macomber and her husband raised their four children, and now have grandchildren. They still live in Port Orchard, Washington, but now winter in Florida.
