Amazing book, such a care-free story line. I am not sure I would have the guts to marry someone based on an add and move accross the united states. This story has it all, humor, love, growing, understanding, and learning who one really is at the end of the day.

Debbie Macomber once again writes a great story that holds the readers interest to the very end. Excellent read that I didn't want to put down.

This is probably my favorite Macomber book. I've never met a Macomber book I didn't like either. Some are better than others but to me this is Debbie Macomber at her best.

A very sweet, enjoyable love story. I liked the characters - especially the children. The sex scenes are a bit more descriptive than Macomber's current books, but I think they are appropriate for the characters and storyline.

One of the better ones by Macomber. She is not my favorite but once in a while she writes a gem of a novel. That's why I seem to keep reading her even though I trash half the stuff she writes.

This was quite a sweet, fun novel. It was a silly premise but such an easy read. The characters were great and there were some interesting dialogue. I have always thought dialogue was one of Macomber's weak points so it was a pleasant surprise. Yes, it's predictable but it's a fluffy romance so you can't expect much. I'm also not sure that a wife would be any cheaper than a housekeeper.

Macomber usually writes very PG love scenes but this one was more like an R rating. It's not smutty or kinky, just a little more description of the deed. It was on the tame, tasteful side.

There were a few complaints I have. Macomber continues to recycle the same characters but just slaps a different name on them which was very disappointing. Another one was that she doesn't explain why Mary who was so mousy suddenly becomes a whole different person in Montana. So if you were to take this novel seriously, there are some serious character inconsistency. But again, it's a fluff romance so you have to lower your expectations.

Overall, it was a good read if you are for some brainless fun.
