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.

    "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!

    "Dated story"
    What didn’t you like about Kate Rudd’s performance?

    Kate dropped the consonants at the ends of words, and that was annoying.


    Was This Matter of Marriage worth the listening time?

    Not really. Dated content; silly premise.

    "I enjoyed the story"

    A good story with some humor. I really liked the narrator, sometimes the different male voices wasn't quite distinguished from others, but definitely a good book that was fun to listen to. Give it a try!
