There's an old saying about the way to a man's heart 

Meghan O'Day and Grey Carlyle couldn't be more different. He's a sophisticated professor of literature; she's a waitress with a high-school education and a love of the classics. He returns time and again to the diner where she works—and it's not just for the coffee and pie! Or even for the conversat

Both were good. These are some of Debbie's early stories but they were still great to read.

I enjoyed the stories. However, I thought that all the characters were too self-sacrificing. So they were good but not as good as the usual Debbie Macomber books I have read.

I really enjoyed both stories in this book!

Each story had unique characters and great storylines! I liked the romance in each story.

This was another Goodwill paperback find, and I bought it because I'd enjoyed "74 Seaside Avenue," which is part of the author's Cedar Cove series. The author clearly states at the beginning that this book is a Valentine's Day edition of two of her early romance stories. And, her writing has improved since those days because this wasn't nearly as good as the other book that I read by her.

The two stories are easy to enjoy if you like sweet, happy-ending romances! They were a little too light for

Like all of Debbie Macomber's books, I loved this one. While some may not appreciate some of the cheesy romance Debbie may sometimes come up with, I love it. Reading her books makes believe that there are great guys out in the world waiting for their other half to find them. (Yes, I'm a romantic. Sue me.) What I loved about the first story, The Way to a Man's Heart, was that the character's age difference didn't matter to them. And no one judge them! In the second story, Hasty Wedding, the main ...more

Meghan O'Day and Grey Carlyle are different as night and day, they share a love for literature. She is a waitress and he's a professor. Meghan feels inferior to him because she doesn't have a lot of education. could the love they feel about each other be enough.
the second story is about Reed Tonasket and Claire Gilroy. Reed loved Claire when they were young but he is Native American and she is white. but years later when they attend a friend's wedding everything changes between them. Debbie Maco

It's always wonderful to read a Macomber book. The story pulls me in immediately, the characters are so real, and I want to crawl into that book world to live there in harmony with the wonderful folks Debbie brings to life. I forget about my own problems when I read Debbie Macomber books, and I seek them out when I need an infusion of the good life. This time I especially enjoyed Hasty Wedding. Don't ever stop writing for us, Debbie :) I especially loved the waitress story. I don't have a degree ...more
There are lots of things I liked about this book. I love that both characters love literature. They are huge bookworms. They even bicker about writers. lol.

I love the heroine's family. I love how both characters grow.

However, the romance didn't work for me. Not because the couple didn't have chemistry, they did. None the less, every other page there was a misunderstanding. We never got any smooth time to believe they fell in love.

I ended up irrated. I hate that.

So far I loved the first story of, "The Way to a Man's Heart," nothing like a good love story about two unique people with different jobs but the same love in literature. Debbie Macomber really made me fall in love with the way these two characters Meghan and Grey were meant for eachother from the start and just needed to go through what we all call life to finally realize it was meant to be in the end. ❤ ...more

A Man's Heart is a nice love story of two people with different backgrounds. She is a waitress and he is a
college professor. She feels inferior to him because of her lack of education. They have some obsticles to overcome. Basically a fun book to read.
A Hasty Wedding was a fun book too. A couple being married in Vegas with their best man and maid of honor. The maid of honor and bestman get caught up with the ceremony and hastily marry. But not happily ever after.

What happens when a waitress with a love of literature falls for a literature professor at a local college. Sparks ignite in this wonderful story: A Man's Heart. Unfortunately, the second story, Hasty Wedding did not work for me. A librarian falls for the town outcast, and things heat up quickly. For me, it was a little two quickly, as this story centered on instant love with little character development.

This is two stories in one book. The stories were written in 1989 and 1993. I guess that explains why they are not as good as I expected. They are both good, sweet stories. Although "The Way to a Man's Heart" (89) is much better than "Hasty Wedding" (93), so maybe the timing does not hold up as an explanation. But in general the two stories are good and a nice read.

Two sappy, mindless, happily-ever-after reads! These were fine, but my issue with Macombers early works are that they don't hold after so many years. The heroine's are weak, the heroes usually romantic stereotypes. I still read them, because I've enjoyed her later romances, but my expectations aren't very high when it's a repackaged reprint. Only good for quick and easy brain-candy.

I have always enjoyed Debbie Macomber's books and these two were no exception! :-) I had not read either of these and I greatly enjoyed both of them. It's hard to choose between a literature professor and a Native American artist, I could happily marry either one! ;-)

A couple of good little romance stories. The Way to a Man's Heart was about a waitress and a college professor. Hasty Wedding was about a librarian and a totem pole carver. Both were an easy read with predictable endings. Didn't have to think much, just enjoy the read.

Broke into two stories the first one is about a waitress who falls for her professor. The second about a women who falls for a native American and marries him in Vegas. I felt the stories were drawn out too much and was not one of my favorites of Debbie's books.

Liked the premise of the novel, but the characters were too goody-goody. This was one of this prolific author's earlier works and you could tell.
