    A happily ever after story

    Window on the Bay is the latest novel by Debbie Macomber. I thought the story was well-written with steady pacing. I enjoy Debbie Macomber’s writing style. She manages draw the reader into her world and hold their attention. I like that the main characters are two women in their forties who now have empty households. Jenna and Maureen are likeable and relatable women (which Ms. Macomber is known for creating). It is great that the two women are close friends and are there for each other. Both women are divorced and have spent the last twenty years taking care of their kids. Now is a chance for the two women to “spread their wings”. Jenna wants them to finally take the trip to Paris that they had to postpone after college plus she is thinking about taking a painting class. We also get to see a different perspective with Jenna’s eighteen year old daughter, Allie. Jenna is making changes at home, which upsets Allie. Allie may want to live on her own and discover who she is, but she does not want things to change at home. This provides balance to the story and a different outlook. Maureen and Jenna have dated sporadically over the years. But they have been burned by their husbands, and it is hard to open themselves up to love and to trust another man. Dating is not easy as we see with Jenna and Maureen. Each person learns something about themselves through the process. It is never too late to grow and change. The path to happily ever after is bumpy, but well worth the effort. I admit that I related more to Maureen with her love of books and dislike of sports. I enjoyed the light humor sprinkled throughout the story and I appreciated that is a clean story (no foul language or intimate relations). Jenna’s favorite spot in her home is her window seat with the view of Elliott Bay. I could understand how she finds peace from looking out at the water. It was nice there was an epilogue to wrap up the book. Window on the Bay is a heartwarming book with a happily-ever-after that will please readers and reading it is a lovely way to spend a leisurely afternoon.

    Window on the Bay is a warm, emotionally charged story of two long time friends facing a new stage in life. Both Jenna and Maureen have craved the time where they could enjoy life without all the responsibility of family. Since college they have planned a trip to Paris. Since the last child is off to college, now is surely the time they can make it happen. Will they be able to get to Paris or will events have them postponing again? Grab a copy of this one to find out. I highly recommend it.

    A Heart Warming Story

    Wow!! A heart warming story of two best friends move into the next chapter of their lives. Jenna and Maureen have been BFF, both of their marriages ended in divorce years ago and raising their children on their own. Now Jenna is an empty nester and the next chapter in her life begins. Learning to live on her own and dating again. Maureen too is facing a new boyfriend. This book grabbed me from the beginning and did not let go until the end, plus I wanted more. Wonderful characters that I feel that many can relate too. Plenty of romance and family dynamics that will keep you engaged. I highly recommend this book.

    Family and friendship

    Window on the Bay by Debbie Macomber Random House/Ballentine Books July 16, 2019 Fiction, beach read, romance 336 pages Rating: 4/5 5/3/19-5/27/19 I received a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley and Ballantine Books in exchange for an unbiased review. Jenna and Maureen had been best friends since they met at the University of Washington many years ago. They had always planned to take a trip to Paris but it seemed that life events always got in the way. Jenna Boltz is a divorced single mother of two children living in Seattle. She works as an ICU nurse to support her children, Paul and Allie who are in college. Kyle Boltz is her ex-husband who is a surgeon but found fidelity to be an issue and made a new life for himself. Fortunately, Jenna and her kids still had Jenna’s mother, Carol, who was spry 70-ish woman. Carol had a good friend Mrs. Torres who was checking on her friend to find that she had fallen. She immediately called for help and notified Jenna. It seems that surgery and a long rehabilitation lie ahead for Carol. Maureen Zelinski worked as a librarian and also divorced from Peter which only lasted 5 years. They had a daughter, Victoria “Tori” who married an engineer, Jonathan. Maureen had been a support to Tori since she miscarried a year ago. She is very organized and structured which suits her career as a librarian. It seemed that new construction in the area brought a weekly visit from a construction worker. Logan worked as a plumber and during breaks would check out a book to read with Maureen’s suggestion. He was a bit rough around the edges and liked to call her “Marian the Librarian” which eventually grew on her. Over time they developed an awkward relationship given their many differences. The two friends are a constant support to each other through all the many ups and downs over the years. Jenna had been stressing over being a newly empty nester since sending Allie to college. She worried less about Paul who worked hard at a restaurant while attending college. Maureen was confused about the attention she was receiving from Logan. The two friends were Leary when it came to getting romantically involved again. Carol is recovering before being transferred to a rehab post hip surgery. She is pleased with her orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rowan Lancaster. Jenna didn’t know much as side from gossip that he kept to himself. When he casually flirted with her at her mother’s bedside she didn’t know what to make of it. She tries to maintain a professional relationship with him which becomes complicated since he has taken a special interest in his patient, Carol. Both friends discover that they need to take a chance on dating and romance. Relationships can be complicated but can also provide support and comfort. This is a delightful story of friendship, family and finding love again. It reminds us that everyone has a life story and the path they take is unique.
