Ive enjoyed reading Debbie Macomber books for a long time!  I would like to get some new reviews on some of her older books.

 

Thanks so much!

Anything in particular?  I've read a lot of her Silhouette Special Editions but not much of her mainstream stuff.

She's one I collect. Not sure why. My daughter liked her and so I started reading all her back stuff.

I've collected all the street address ones, but haven't read them yet.  But I think I've read most of her back list.

Liked them all.  What particular titles were you wondering about?

The Texas series is very good and the Alaska books were great too.  Can't resist those cowboys and rugged individuals! 8->

Morning Comes Softly- I just read recently and really enjoyed it. It's a modern day mail order bride storyline and very sweet.Snow Bride(i think that was the title) was another good book about another modern day mail order bride, set in Alaska, the herione ends up falling in love with the bush Pilot that transports her. Her Dakota born and Montana series are good too.

 

I enjoy her books also. Alot of people might say she's got so many books that they are starting to read alike, but i don't necessarily find that to be true in Macomber's case.

I remember getting hooked on her books many years ago when i picked up a copy of "Navy Baby" at the library and finished it in one day!

Thanks so much for all of your posts!

 I have read alot of her "cuurent" books.  I have read the Alaska series, the Cedar Cove series ( the ones with the Addresses)

and some of her Navy books also.

 I was wondering particularly about some of her older books-- in the Sillioutte line ( spelling)?

I liked the Texas Series and all of her "Angel Books"!!! Those are very cute!!

I do not have any credits left right now, I just joined, but Im looking forward to exchanging books with everyone!

Her Navy series (Navy Wife, Navy Husband, Navy Baby, etc) were originally Silhouette Special Editions.  She also did a Manning sisters/Those Manning Men series.  5 siblings (2 girls, 3 boys).  I loved those books too.

Oh, and I think it's called Denim and Diamonds?  That was a SSE and that one really has stuck with me.  The heroine has a heart condition.

Like I said, I haven't read much of her mainstream stuff but I love her older category stuff.  She's got some really sweet Silhouette Romances out there too.

Have you done a search on here for her books, i would think most have reviews on them?

Or you could try www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/ and type in Debbie Macomber, it should have a complete list of all her books.

I read all of the Navy series and the Promise, Texas series (Silhouettes) and they were great! I liked the Promise, Texas series more.

Might want to go to the book Bazzar search for her books on a 2 for 1,  to streach your credits. Then you have 2 books to post when done. 

I have been keeping her books for when I get around to reading them,  hope to retire in a few years and have lots of time.
