Father’s Day

Robin Masterson’s ten-year-old son, Jeff, figures he needs a dog more than anything in the world. And there just happens to be one right next door! But the friendly black Lab belongs to Cole Camden, the unfriendliest man in the neighborhood. Still, Jeff persists…and soon his mom and Cole are looking at each other in a whole new way.

The Courtship of Carol Sommars

Peter Sommars is fifteen, and what he needs is a little more independence. Which is why he’d like his mom, Carol, to start dating. He even knows the perfect man — Alex Preston, his best friend’s dad. As it turns out, Alex is interested, but Carol’s doing everything she can to sidestep his pursuit. Which only makes Alex—and the boys—more determined!

“With first-class author Debbie Macomber it’s quite simple—she gives readers an exceptional, unforgettable story every time.” —ReadertoReader.com

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mackenzie Loi | 2/16/2014

    " It was very good. it was very sad at times with the little boy and his dog. It is a romance novel so it might be a little weird. The author is a great person and is a great author, I have loved every book that ive read from her! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 2/4/2014

    " Two charming stories in one book. I liked "Fathers Day" a bit more than "The courtship of Carol Sommers" but maybe that is because I read it first. While reading the second story a lot of the elements felt repetative. I'm also a sucker for a big dog. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeri | 2/2/2014

    " Two books in one. Romance without steamy sex scences "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gevera Bert | 2/1/2014

    " Two very similar stories that suffer from being placed back to back, as the formula is clearly revealed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie Bolur | 1/30/2014

    " I always enjoy reading Debbie Macomber books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loni | 1/29/2014

    " Two nice stories about giving love a 2nd chance, predictable but comfortable reads. One of the rare times on of Macomber's books doesn't tie into another series. As always her characters are like old friends & I hated for the stories to end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trisha | 1/28/2014

    " I liked this book but not as much as some of her other ones. I have found that I am not as fond of her books that have only a few characters and one story line. I love Debbie's books that have lots of characters and lots of story lines all in the same book. Especially when it is a series of some sort and you get to know the characters more in depth with each book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 1/27/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoyed both novellas. The characters were lovely and very likeable. There was just the right amount of humor and each had a happy ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 1/20/2014

    " Cute. I read these at the beach and they were fun and quick reads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sabrina | 1/15/2014

    " A typical chick book, easy read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/14/2014

    " Couldn't finish this one. The characters were just too annoying and pathetic for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dannielle | 1/12/2014

    " Both stories were good, and had awesome male heroes and supporting cast. But in both cases the woman got way too hung up on her past and took too long getting over it and accepting the new relationship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 12/11/2013

    " good, quick fluffy read! got through each of the stories in a day and thoroughly enjoyed both :) not a whole lot of depth or intense drama, simply a couple of cute love stories that will make you smile. worth reading for sure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 12/8/2013

    " this is 2 books in one...nice, light, fun romance stories. "

    " Another romantic urge fulfilled. Love them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 11/22/2013

    " Not a very deep book, but it was a nice rainy day read. The second story wasn't as interesting as the first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 11/14/2013

    " I needed a mushy book!!!! Def two love stories smushed into 1 book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 11/27/2012

    " I really like Debbie Macomber's Blossom Street books and her Cove series but this one not as much. The first story was good, but the second was a little too racy for my taste. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Allie Danek | 9/20/2012

    " tedious to read, too mundane, stopped after the first 50 or so pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Gebo | 3/17/2012

    " This book is SOOOOOOOOO good. Sometimes things are right under out nose and we don't even see it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Germaine Chevarie | 2/1/2012

    " The two stories were too similar to be in the same book. If I had read them a couple of momths apart, I would have enjoyed them a lot more. But , Debbie Macumber is still one of my favourite authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 12/25/2011

    " Sometimes you just need to read something that you know will end well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yarissa | 12/14/2011

    " One of the best romantic books.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenda L | 10/13/2011

    " Two more romances by Debbie Macomber ... actually Debbie wrote Father's Day and her son wrote The Courtship of Carol Sommars. I liked Father's Day best ... "Courtship" was a little long and boring. Both are easy read and good for a rainy day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Odetta | 9/23/2011

    " I really enjoyed these books. They are easy to listen to & gave me several hours of pleasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 8/13/2011

    " As I am addicted to Debbie Macomber, this is not an impartial review. I may have already read this book last winter when I read one or two per day, but it still provided me with a lovely distraction during my plane ride home from the family reunion in Minnesota "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Belinda | 7/27/2011

    " a great book! i didn't want it to end. "

    " So predictable I didn't bother finishing it. Maybe the problem
    was that I had just finished John Grisham's "The Summons", I have
    enjoyed Debbie Macomber's books in the past. "
