The alarm on Hallie's biological clock is buzzing. She's hitting the big three-O and there's no prospect of marriage, no man in sight. Hallie, an organized, goal-setting kind of person, gives herself a year to meet Mr. Knight...In Shining Armor. but all her dates are disasters. (There's the cheapskate and the sex fiend and...well, never mind.)
Too bad she can't just fall for her good-looking neighbor Steve Marris-who's definitely not her type. Anyway, Steve's busy trying to win back his ex-wife, Mary Lynn, who's busy getting married-but not to Steve. Life would be so much simpler if he could fall for someone else. Like...Hallie.
They're friends, though-and sometimes friends become lovers. Sometimes friends become more.

Typical romance story that you can figure out the end of almost from the beginning. Easy, fast reading. There are funny things that happen that make it worth reading.

I just love it! Hallie decided it was time to get married. She gave herself a year to have a husband - though she wasn't even dating. Her college friends (some of them) were working on their second marriage and she had started her own business and worked to build it up. The story is a riot of horrible dates. A great laugh by Macomber!

This was one of my favorite Debbie Macomber books, though I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the ending. It didn't seem as well developed as the rest of the book. But I would definitely recommend this book to others. It was laugh out loud funny! Great story!
