Twenty years later, Caitlin is a successful stockbroker. She has all but forgotten about Joe Crocker and has set her sights on her boss. Problem is that he only seems to notice her for her work ethic.

A construction crew is doing some work in Caitlin’s office and the...more
When Caitlin eight years old, her brother's best friend, Joe, age ten, wants to see what it's like to kiss a girl, but Cait believes girls and boys should not kiss unless they're married. So she insists the boys go through a pretend ceremony first. All for a quick peck on the lips.

Twenty years later, Caitlin is a successful stockbroker, desperately in love with her boss, who pays no attention to her at all and seems to be completely oblivious to her feelings. The office is being remodeled, and...more

Such a romantic sweet story, Can I have a Joe Rockwell?:) Debbie wrote everyone so wonderfully, everyone was fleshed out and had their own distinct personalities... though a few times I wanted to shake Cait to wake her up in regards to Paul.

I loved how miss macomber showed Csitlin and Joe progressing from friendship to "more", those two will make you smile and laugh quite a few times... I had a suspicion what was going on with Lindy and was eager to see how it all played out.

I was bored and needed something to read.

This is a book I picked up on a whim after reading the summary. While the story didn't turn out to be quite what I was expecting, it was still a cute, quick read. It had a bit of a holiday theme but nothing too over the top, which suited my mood perfectly. I think this was a good book to introduce me to Debbie Macomber's work, and I look forward to reading more from her in the coming year.
Although the back cover is a bit misleading (the character doesn't even get to the airport until nearly the end) I loved the story. The characters were very cute and frustrating :). So I may have been drawn by the "home for minnesota" tag since that is my plan this year it kept me because of the nice, cozy story.
I love this book! It made me laugh almost the entire time, especially when Joe and Caitlin bantering with each other, or when Joe started telling everybody that they were "married". Hilarious!
This is better than a 3 star but not quite a 4 star ... So 3.5 it is!

Very cute and very predictable ... Cait could be frustrating to read about at times.. But I really liked her anyway :-)
This was a short fun and humorous romance. Like the other reviewers, I would have liked to slap some sense into Caitlin, for being so dense.
The forgetful bride was an okay book. I think you would need to be in the right mood to read this book. It is highly predictable and very fluffy.
What a wonderful romance to get lost in. Debbie Macomber has a certain way with characters that make them believable and adoring.
Quick, breezy romantic comedy. It was fun to curl up with on a chilly weekend afternoon. Loved the hero. The heroine irritated me.
I found this book very cute. I found myself smiling during many of the parts of the story.
This was a cute book...very predictable. Loved Joe, but, Kate really drove me crazy at times.
Another enjoyable book that is just to be read, not analyzed. Enjoyed but not "WOW"

I enjoy reading her books in between books that I have to really concentrate on.
I enjoyed re-reading this one. Pure fluff, but amusing fluff.
This book was my favorite Debbie Macomber book. It was so good!!!
Lee Savino
