Reading Debbie Macomber books for me is my so called "Comfort Food." I have always liked Debbie's books. Her love stories are just that, not a 'sex fest,' like so many so called "Romance" novels. You can depend on her for clean fun reading. I could go on and on about how she writes tender love stories, and how they are about normal people, but anyone who is a Debbie Macomber fan all ready knows that.

Because of the Baby
Karen's ex husband Matthew, she is done with him and Alaska. She missed him and Alaska. She caved in when he sent her a Valentine card and she showed up and spent the night with him.

Abby and Sawyer are also having a baby. So many weddings, births the town has grown a lot over the past several years.
Ben gets advice from Sawyer about getting his wife back-picnic...more
I never know what to say about the harlequin books. They aren't like other books, you have your basic story and then you get your happy ending... so I guess I'll wing it.

This story is about a couple that got divorced, then moved to different places (California & Alaska) then came together for a wedding and eventually got pregnant. Pregnancy didn't bode well for her, so her ex came to get her from California and moved back to Alaska. They then worked on their relationship and got back togethe...more
It wasn't my favorite book of this series, but it was still comical. I gave it 4 stars because I felt the ending was a little rushed. Mrs. Macomber also used husband/wife and ex husband/wife interchangeably with Matt and Karen's relationship. Even though they are working on reconciling their marriage, they are still legally divorced.
This was a cute, sweet little story about the possibility of second chances. Cleary the men around in this story have no idea about romance, must be all that Alaskan fresh air. :)
Matt Caldwell has tried different occupations and quiting within a year. He has never found a job that he loves. After he quit his accounting job his wife decided she couldn't take it anymore left him the following morning and then quickly applied for divorce. Even though it had been 18 months since the divorce Matt still loved her. When Karen arrives in Hard Luck to be the maid of honor at Matt's sister's wedding one thing leads to another and a month later when she is back home she finds out t...more
This was a good story just the characters could never see the others point of view and it frustrated me.
So, I came across this book through my library's online rental system. I am a sucker for book covers and don't always read the summary of the book, and this was featured as "just released"... both led me to believe this was a new book from Debbie Macomber. It is not. It's also part of a series. Because it is part of a series I picked up in the middle of it so it didn't make for most capitvating read. It was just okay for me. I usually enjoy Macomber's books more.
Before a trip to Alaska I read this series of books by Debbie Macomber to get in the spirit of the country. I liked her easy writing style. Good light reading.

I loved all the characters. they kept me interested and wanting more! i love Hard Luck Alaska and would love to visit!
Read it as it was a new e book release at the library. Really wasted my time. Oh well can't love every book.
Matt was pretty clueless but Karen kind of annoyed me the most out of the two.
I liked it but compared to the others it isn't one of my favorites

It was great to read that Matt Caldwell find his niche.
