Can they get it right the second time?

Single mom Joanna Parsons insists that marriage is an experience she doesn't plan to repeat, no matter what her eleven-year-old daughter, Kristen, thinks.

Tanner Lund feels the same way. Like Joanna, he got divorced after a short, disastrous marriage. And like her, he's raising his eleven-year-old daughter, Nicole, alone.

But Kristen

I liked the book, it was sweet. Both the hero and heroine are single divorced parents to eleven year old girls who are best friends. Both of them were burnt badly and have no intention of marrying again.

Their first meeting is not great, the heroine comes off with the impression that he is a bad parent and he thinks she is a crazy bag lady. The mis-conceptions are soon cleared up and both of them become wise to the plans of their daughters to get them together.

They decide they don't want to but s

I really liked this book. Probably more like 4.5 stars. Sometimes I really don't like DM books, they can be a little too sweet. This one tho was good. The 2 11 year old daughters were realistic and a warm, fun meaningful part of the plot. I really liked the developing relationship between the H/h from wary friendship to romance, to love. They were both resistant to the idea of love and romance, they had no desire to repeat the painful experiences of their first marriages by ever marrying again, ...more
A very cute book
1- daughters conspire against the parents
2- the daughters act 'real' in the sense that they feel the parents are over the hill just cuz they're their parents (my gosh! they're over 30!)
3- Both the H/h become friends before they get involved
4- they don't want to raise their daughters' hopes
5- They're both divorced and what they feel for their exes is true.You can't just wipe out the past
6- The h's encounter at the roller skating rink STRONGLY reminded me of my ice skating effort.
Two divorced parents com up against two matchmaking daughters who think they would make a wonderful couple.
Predictable, but fun.

I struggled a bit with the hero who prompted by jealousy had a way of delivering some nasty lines, yet the heroine just let it roll off her back.

Thus the three stars.

In Macomber’s romance novel, single parents Joanna Parsons and Tanner Lund have both been burned by marriage and both are raising daughters on their own. Neither plan to ever remarry. But their young daughters aspire to be sisters and together lay out a plan to unite Joanna and Tanner in wholly matrimony.

A wonderful story that reminded me of The Parent Trap!

Happy ending

I chose this book strictly on the title. It sounded good. Love stories about single parents that go through rough times are a favorite of mine. They always have a nice ending with the parent finding their soul mate. It also has some funny scenes that make you laugh.

ALWAYS a good read

Granted, I might be biased due to the fact that Debbie Macomber is my favorite female author of the 2000's...Jane Austen is my favorite all around! :)
Sweet story, and characters.
A vintage (read: rereleased) Macomber romance. It's nowhere near as compelling and well-written as her more recent stories, but still an enjoyable love story to curl up and relax with.
Sweet story. Enjoyed reading this one. The author did a good job writing the kids, which is not an easy thing to do.

Was looking for a light read. This was too light. Totally predictable, and rather stupid.
This was a cute book about 2 girls trying to match make their parents. Both parents were hurt in their past marriages and had to work on building the trust and being open to a new relationship. I felt Tanner had already resolved his issues while Joanna still had lots of unresolved feelings of the past. However, it was cute to see Tanner get so jealous and worked up when Joanna's ex shows up. Very nice read.
Good book but feeling very familiar. Returning to library even though not logged in as "read" it just feels like I've read it before. Too many good books to read that I haven't read before!
I think this was an old one that has recently been re-released. A nice easy and quick read. Predictable, but who doesn't like a happy ending every once in a while?
Cute story. Fairly believable characters, and even when the storyline was a little dated, it still worked.
Very sweet. Loved how the two daughters conspired together.
