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

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...more

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.
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.
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.
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.
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! ;-)
I have read the first story so far, I thought it was very sweet and romantic, Just started reading hasty wedding will send another review soon!!!
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.

I enjoy Debbie Macomber's books. This is a reprint of two of her earlier books and I have to say that I really enjoyed them.

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.

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

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