Married revisits two earlier stories

Married in Seattle
Author: Debbie Macomber
Re-issue: First Comes Marriage and Wanted: Perfect Partner
ISBN-13: 978-0-7783-2679-3
Genre: Contemporary Romance


How to meet and marry a man in Seattle. There are all the usual ways, of course, but here’s how Janine Hartman and Meg Remington did it.

Janine: My grandfather Hartman arranged a husband for me! Zach Thomas, the intended groom, was just as outraged as I was. But Gramps insisted we’d be “a perfect match.” First Comes Marriage, according to him.

Meg: My teenage daughter, Lindsey, had the nerve to place a personal ad on my behalf—Wanted: Perfect Partner. Worse, Steve Conlan, who answered the ad, was perfect, according to her.

Does Grandfather know best? Did a teenage matchmaker get it right? You decide!

My View:
Keep in mind that these books are some of Debbie's earlier works, written in the early 1990s. Both stories included in this book are light hearted and easy reads. They are fun for what they are, but not especially convincing for real life. Doesn't have to be though, just something to read on a rainy winter day for the fun of it.
