Publisher's Summary

"If I want to get married and have a family (and I do), it's time for a plan!" (From Hallie McCarthy's diary)

The alarm on Hallie's biological clock is buzzing away. She's hitting the big three-0, and there's no prospect of marriage, no man in sight. But Hallie's an organized, goal-setting kind of person. She 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. He'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....

Great story but disappointing content

I will buy any book with Debbie Macomber's name on it because I know it will be good and will be free of sexual details. Hence the reason this story was a little bit disappointing. Content was not explicit and was minimal but really not necessary. Macomber's work is a refreshing change from the majority of romance fiction out there. I feel like this book compromised the integrity of her work. I will continue to be a Macomber fan however I hope she holds strong to her beliefs and doesn't succumb to the pressure of sexual content to sell books.

enjoyable

Pleasant story, likeable characters, enticing story. I was pulled in immediately and although I could predict some of the story line I couldn't keep from listening, until the end.

Predictable

Not one of my favorite Debbie Macomber books!! The book was LONG the performance was grating on the ears after awhile, if an abridged version is available I would recommend getting it.

Emotional and Fulfilling

What a great read! I was laughing so hard at times. Once again Debbie created such a great get away and yet so much reality that you can't help but get emotionally attached. I loved it!

Love Debbie Macomber

This is another book by Debbie Macomber that I find hard to stop until I'm done. Debbie writes books that I wouldn't worry about one of my grandchildren getting hold of and get they aren't so marshmallow that I would lose interest.
