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!

“Debbie Macomber writes characters who are as warm and funny and real as your best friends.” —New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs

    " cute stories very unbelievable but sometimes it is fun to just suspend reality and enjoy a good love story! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry | 2/14/2014

    " One Macomber is more than enough. It was too predictable by page two I had the plot figured out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Farr | 2/10/2014

    " I think I read these books when they were stand alone books, but since I can't seem to put a book down once I've started it, I finished them again. They are fun, lighthearted books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 2/8/2014

    " fun read from a favorite author. Always a happy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 1/30/2014

    " Cute and easy romanitic fluff! :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bj Hoover | 1/25/2014

    " First Comes Marriage, first published in 1991, is not up to Debbie Macomber's later books. I found Janine and her Grandfather irritating and Zachary kind of uninteresting and didn't go for the plot, but it was popular at that time, I guess. The second book in this edition, Wanted: Perfect Partner was a bit more fun and Meg and Steve as victims of their young family members were kind of charming. I wouldn't go out of my way to read these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/16/2014

    " I loved these 2 stories. They were short, light and clever. I laughed out loud several times. The romances were both unconventional and predictable but I found it to be comforting. Very clean both language and intimacy. I thought it was just right! I want to read more of her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 11/15/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 9/24/2013

    " I LOVE Debbie Macomber and usually can't put one of her books down. Not the case with this one. I had to keep pushing myself to finish it. It isn't a terrible read, just a predictable one ... no spark! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy Kester | 9/12/2013

    " It's a good to the heart romance. She always makes me feel good. The first story was a little unbelievable but the 2nd one was cute. A couple of teenagers help their older sibling and mom find love using internet dating. "
