Start your review of Primrose Lane (Harmony Harbor #3)
Olivia’s life has been one heartache after another, but what happened the day one little girl showed up in her life would throw anyone for a loop and send them spiraling even further out of control. The last person she expected to come to her rescue is the very person who has called her out on her weaknesses. He also has the potential to rock her world forever, if they both take that one leap of faith.

PRIMROSE LANE by Debbie Mason is one of those sweet romances that has hidden thorns beneath its

This was such a wholesome, cute, and enjoyable story!

First off, I want to mention that although this is a third novel in a series, this book can be read as a standalone. I read this book as a standalone and didn't feel as if I was missing out on any components within the story. If anything, my enjoyment of this novel only encourages me to go on the hunt and read some of the previous titles within this series.

Overall, this story can be summarized in one word: charming. Yes, there is mor

Favorite Quotes:

Well, she was here, just not here, here. She’d been dead— or undead as the case may be— going on seven months now. Perhaps “passing” would be a more accurate term because she seemed to be betwixt and between. She’d seen the light all right, only she’d been lollygagging, worrying about the ones she was leaving behind, and therefore missed the magic carpet ride to heaven.

Chard-a nay-nay.

How had she not noticed that the smiles and laughter that she’d faked for so long, that she’d fe

Sweet, cosy, and warm!

In this third outing in the Harmony Harbour series, Primrose Lane, we head back to Greystone Manor and into the lives of both the event planner, Olivia who is struggling with a past that continues to haunt her and a true identity she’s trying to keep hidden, and Finn Gallager, the middle brother and doctor sidelined by injury and anxious to be healed and heading back to the Congo as soon as possible.

The writing style is smooth and witty. The characters are intriguing, quirk

Olivia Davenport has left her old life behind, or at least tried. She is now living at Greystone Manor and is the events planner under the name Dana Templeton, her past life one is one she left in pain and didn't want to return to it no matter what until forces beyond her control bring her old life to her.

Oh boy, I really struggled with this one. Not in a bad way, okay, sometimes in a bad way. But if you follow me you know I like that about the books I read. Life isn't all sunny days. We make mistakes, sometimes over and over again.

Which for me was the case with Finn Gallagher. Yes, at times he really only had Olivia's best interests at heart. But more often then not I found him to be a little high and mighty with a

Debbie Mason is one of those authors who I constantly question why I keep reading her books. I end up angry at her heroes for about 60% of each book. However, her writing pulls me in and I inevitably fall in love with the hero anyways. It's that response that keeps me coming back. Stories that invoke that type of angry passion are the best!!

My heart broke for Olivia and all that she had been through in her life and the way a lot of the people around her treated her, particularly the men

There's just something so addicting about Debbie Mason's books, they are nearly impossible to put down and for some strange reason I always start reading right before bed and the I end up staying up until I finish them.

So we are back in Harmony Harbor and this time we get to know Dana or Olivia a lot better, from the moment we meet Olivia at the beginning of the series we know she is hiding something or hiding from someone and in Primrose Lane we finally find out what h

ARC received via Netgalley for an honest review

This is the 3rd in the Harmony Harbor series, and whilst you could get away with reading it as a standalone, there are characters and parts of timelines that to carry through the whole series.

I have enjoyed the past 2 book in the series, however I think that this has become my favourite. Those Gallagher brothers sure do know how to get those hearts afluttering.

Debbie Mason’s Primrose Lane is a heartfelt second chance story which features Finn Gallagher and Olivia Davenport. The third novel in the series takes place at Greystone Manor, a hotel located in the coastal community of Harmony Harbor, Massachusetts. The small town setting, the unique characters and the witty and honest dialogue appealed to me and I read the novel in one afternoon.

And we finally get to crack the code that is Dana/Olivia. Obvious that she is hiding something and the little fractures that don’t quite reveal the story finally build to breaking point. Fortunately for her, Finn is in town recovering from injuries he received at a posting with Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) and he’s more than a bit interested in this stranger his family has trusted. His attitude, while harsh, was understandable: he’s worked with all sorts of people all aroun ...more

This was my first book by author Debbie Mason, but it won't be my last! It was an overall good read that leaves the reader feeling happy and satisfied with the ending. It is book 3 in the series, but I started here and I was just fine. It gave me some of the back story on the previous books, and that was enough to give me a smooth read.

The characters were fun, the banter was natural and it left the reader feeling like happier. I loved the author's writing style and the plot. This was a good read

The Harmony Harbor series is about the Gallagher family, heirs to the large hotel complex in town. When the matriarch Colleen died, her will stipulated her heirs be unanimous in their decision to keep the hotel in operation or to sell. They are not in agreement but with each book in the series at least one more Gallagher takes a position and it’s not always what they thought would happen.

Dana and Finn give us a fun ride full of misunderstandings and cuteness. The little girl who comes into Dana’s life really helps her heal and see that she is worth more than she thinks.

When Dana and Finn first meet they do not have nice thoughts of each other. Both with preconceived notions of the other. For Finn it is the rich girl mentality he has from his last girlfriend and for Dana it is the doctor and him thinking he is better than others she gets from her husband. A husband who was weak

I've read/listened to all the books in this series so was looking forward to reading Dana's story in this installment.

Dana/Olivia is the event planner at Greystone Manor and in previous books has been a very elegant, efficient, reserved sort of person, having everything under control in her life. But in this book she was a walking disaster, taking sleeping pills because she couldn't sleep and sort of getting hooked on them/forgetting how many she'd taken, drinking too much and making a bit of a
