This matter of marriage: By Debbie Macomber

The first book of this author, I picked up to read was “This matter of marriage”. Before that, I did not know about this author. But now I’m glad, truly glad that I got the opportunity to read her delightful tales.

Every novel is a new, enjoyable romantic tale and, every character is charming and identifiable.

“This matter of Marriage” is a very mild and fluttering romantic comedy.  Story of Hallie, an organized, nice and simple woman, who is 30 years old but still there is no marriage prospects in sight. She kept herself busy in her work all those years but now; she wants to give her a chance to find a suitable husband.

And story of Steve, separated to his wife, with two nice and smart kids. His wife is planning to get married with someone else but Steve still loves his wife and tries to get her back.

Both Steve and Hallie become neighbors and their various encounter leads to a sparkling, unexpected and pleasant love story.

The incidents in this novel, are very interesting and keep you engrossed. Several times I found myself giggling during Hallie’s disastrous & funny dates.

Yeah, it’s true that there are not so many twists and turns and the story is quite predictable but still I found it totally gripping and delightful read that I read it twice in just one go.

  2. Tarang, Thanks A Lot For Sharing About This Novel. I Shall Read This :)

  3. I have a few of hers in the Blossom Street series, I read them in the wrong order and feel she was developing her writing with the earlier ones as I prefer some of the later ones :O)

  4. Yes you’re right. I also read Starlight, her first novel I guess. The later ones are far, far better.
