This is one of the better two-part novels I have read. It has the subtle romance that is very sweet, with out all the trash. I'm sure every person who picks this one up will love it!!

Typical of Debbie Macomber's writing style, Country Brides will bring a smile to you face and incite tears in the next moment. Full of the blossom of sweet, young love, this book is a light journey of two women that end up in totally different places then even they expected! Good reading.

Macomber is a relatively new read for me. I've only gone through a couple of her books. "Country Brides" is a good representation of how I feel about her stories. "A Little Bit Country" I loved while I hated "Country Bride."

"A Little Bit Country" had hilarious moments and just enough tears. Rorie was so endearing. Both Rorie and Clay were intelligent characters and I could sympathize with their predicament and reactions. They had great chemistry as well. The story had interesting side characters that you want to keep reading about. It flowed so well and was easy to read. It was really a great sweet romance like those old black and white movies.

"Country Bride" went nowhere but in circles. I have found that some of Macomber's sequels to be very forced, like she knows she should write about a character but just didn't have enough of material to develop a full story. Kate, who was so cool in the "A Little Bit Country" came off as the biggest idiot in this story. She was acting like a four year old. I have to give Macomber props that Luke was hot but I have no idea why he would be so hung up on a little brat like Kate. He deserved better. The story was painfully slow and had no direction. Perhaps if Macomber made this into a short story it would have been better because 200 pages of "Oh, I love Clay and Luke doesn't really love me but he feels so good" got old quick. It was hard for me to keep reading Kate's stupidity. What a waste of paper!

I really think "A Little Bit Country" was worth the read but unless you are a huge Macomber fan, you can skip Kate's story. If you have never read Macomber before please keep in mind that she writes very PG stories. So if you are looking for something steamy, she isn't the author for you.

True love is true love, no matter if you are getting ready to marry someone else. A nice story but a little heart breaking at times.

I've read both of these stories numerous times from when they were Harlequin romance novels. I replaced those two books with this one because I have literally read the covers off of them. They are excellent stories!

Two great stories in one book!!!

But Clay has no right to return her feelings - because he's engaged to another woman.

What's more, he insists that Kate doesn't love Clay, she loves him...
