I really liked this book, especialy the first story. Good book to read when you want to relax and have some alone time.

I've never read Debbie Macomber but I heard a lot of good reviews on her books. Country Brides is a compilation of two story of two couples. I have read a lot of comments about this book on Goodreads as well as Amazon. Although most of them were not really giving such good comments and rates, I think this book didn't really let me down. It's a romance type and a very quick read. Can't blame on the fast pace of how the story was told for a love at first sight. This a good book if you are looking ...more

I really love reading Debbie Macomber's books, but this was not one of my favorites.

This book broken down into 2 love stories. The first story (1st half of the book) I loved. A women from Los Angelos has her car brake down in a desolate country area. She is rescued by handsome rancher and they fall in love. I loved that story.

However, the second story (2nd half of the book) was a let down. The second story is linked to the first; the story centers on the characters in the first story but it was

A good sweet romance read.

I liked "A Little Bit Country" more than I liked "Country Bride." However there were times in both stories that I could have given the heroines a swift kick in the butt and told them to get a move on with things. How naive can one be?

Poor pathetic little women just did not know what she was thinking. She just needed a big strong man to bring her to her senses! That's 3 hours I'll never get back....

Another good read from Debbie Macomber. This is the first book I've read of hers and I'm hooked on her stories.

I really liked this book: easy read, no sex, no bad language. Just all romance!!
Nov 25, 2009 Heather rated it it was ok
Let me start by saying that I didn't realize this was two books in one. It's a good thing it was, as I never would've given Country Bride a chance after having read A Little Bit Country. The latter was, I felt, awful. I found myself wishing I could get back the time I spent reading it! But, I read Country Bride thinking it was just Part 2 of a two-part book. While I did not like A Little Bit Country - and would have given it one star if I'd read it as a stand-alone title - I actually liked Count ...more

Two books under one cover were written in 1990 - before cell phones and email. They are fun to read stories about two young women who find their true loves country style. Rorie Campbell is a city girl from San Francisco whose car breaks down and is rescued by a pair of brothers. I enjoyed their saga more than Kate Logan's slow realization that she is in love with longtime friend Luke Rivers. There were pages I had to speed read because of all their silly little arguments.

Another combined book of two stories, the story of true love forcing apart an expected marriage and then dealing with the aftermath.
Rosie is a city girl who gets stuck one night on a country road with a broken car belonging to her not very pleasing boyfriend. It's love at first sight for her and the county cowboy, increased hugely as she adapts to country life. However he is meant for someone else.
A really gentle but fun and exciting romance book.
Mar 15, 2013 Lisa rated it it was ok
I don't normally read Debbie Macomber's books but my mom passed this one to me when she was finished. I found it to be very predictable. The first story wasn't so bad, although I found it hard to believe how quickly they fell in love. And I didn't like that he was kissing her when he was engaged to someone else. NOT my kinda guy! She wasn't aware that he was engaged at the time. And this was the first day they met.

The second story didn't have much of a plot at all. She was very stupid and he was

Two stories 'A Little Bit Country' and 'Country Bride' are drawn together by the same characters in different settings. True love is fought for while stubbornness and pride join in. I loved this book. The writing, the characters and the pull back and forth toward true love.

I really enjoyed the first book. The second one was not so great. I disliked Kate's character. She was all over the place. She loved Clay, then asks Luke to marry her, then loves Clay, then is supposedly in love with Luke. I just don't buy it.
Jan 27, 2014 Barbi rated it it was amazing
What a delightful, heartwarming book! I had previously read the story of Kate and Luke (2nd story) but never the story of Clay and Rorie. I found it kind of humorous that both couples were doing their best to "fight" their feelings for the other person when they knew in their hearts that they were meant to be together.
Sep 28, 2015 Marsha rated it really liked it
I honestly enjoyed both stories that were within this book. I wouldn't call this book an award winning book, or the most thought out book. However, if you are in the mood for a just a light romance novel, then this book was perfect. Since the last book I read, was emotional for me, I was happy to read this book. The author makes you feel as though you are at the dance or in the blizzard.

I loved this book so much. It was the first Debbie Macomber book I had ever read and I enjoyed it so much. I loved both stories, they were such a cute read and very fun.

This book was filled with romance, unexpected twists, and learning to follow where your heart leads you. Rorie was on a vacation road trip when her car broke down and she was rescued by Clay and his son. Car repair complications gave Rorie time to fall in love with Clay, who was engaged to Kate. As time goes by, Kate became aware of the love between Clay and Rorie. Kate was unaware that Luke has been in love with her for years and he would love to marry Kate if only he could get her to see him a ...more
