"My Evening with the Debutante"

That unflattering article by Kramer Adams started the whole thing. The "debutante" was Maryanne Simpson, columnist at a rival Seattle paper, which her father happened to own.

Despite her anger at Kramer's interfering opinion. Maryanne decided the tough, streetwise newsman was right about one thing; her life had been too easy. She wanted to e

I really enjoyed this book, it was so fun and sweet really. The heroine comes from a wealthy family and her dad got her a job in a newspaper and she's really trying hard to prove herself and she's also been bantering with another rival columnist Nolan, someone she admires a lot but he seems to dislike her and considers her naive.

They meet face to face and somehow end up having dinner together and a long conversation, the next day the heroine is mad because he published a column about her, but as
This had all the elements of a traditional Debbie Macomber contemporary romance, but somehow it just didn't work for me. I didn't enjoy reading about a woman that is head over heels in love with someone that continues to treat her like dirt. The heroine's willingness to overlook the hero's faults and her ability to accept anything he dished out was a bit over the top. I think the author's attempt at some light hearted fun, just bombed. Instead of laughing with the heroine, I found myself pitying ...more

She wants to earn Kramer’s respect, so she quits her cushy job, her luxury apartment and her trust ...more

He has thrown down the gauntlet and Maryann quits the job that daddy got for her and vows that she will live on what she earns and won't touch her trust fund.

This is a sweet and caring story that will make you laugh and cry. I was thoroughly immersed in the tale and Other than being told to their kids on Christmas Eve this isn’t an overly Christmasey tale (and maybe not a story you’d want to tell your kids). It’s a brilliant tale for all times of year.

The contrast between the two main characters is quite striking. They are completely opposite of each other, yet fit together perfectly. They balance each other out quite well. I appreciate how they wer
THIS is what a contemporary book should read like. Funny poignant and life-like. There's genuine affection between the H/h - there's love between the two and they are friends.

It's SO gonna last!
I found the story cute and then a little frustrating. I was ready for Nolan to get over his issues. They seemed to drag on a little too much.
I enjoyed this for the most part, but found myself getting edgey with the characters. Almost as if I wanted to shove them into each others arms and slap them upside the head, and tell them to get on with it teased each other so much I felt teased. I felt every emotion "Annie" felt through every description of Kramer's kisses. If they didn't change it up a bit, I was at the point of wanting to give up and move onto another book, because it came to a point where I said, enough ...more
I had to read Here Comes Trouble in large print because my library did not carry it in normal print. Here Comes Trouble is about Maryanne who quits her job at the newspaper to prove to Kramer she can stand on her own two feet after her parents have supported her her whole life. I went into this novel comparing it to There's Something about Christmas the last book I had read by Debbie Macomber. There's Something about Christmas was such an amazing novel and this book isn't great at all. I found t ...more

This book was ok & I liked how it began. Retelling the story on how they met.
Another audio cd listen to on the way to work. Nothing special.

Eu li em português e gostei da história... mas achei que algo não estava certo, daí fui verificar em inglês e para minha surpresa o livro está totalmente mutilado.
Faltou o prólogo inteiro e muitas partes da história... é revoltante como tratam os leitores no Brasil.

Vou reler em inglês.
Cute story of should be spoiled MaryAnne heiress writer meeting very popular writer and hitting it off. She does everything she can to change his mind, including leaving. Leaving is what did it for him, he came to his senses and realized she wasn't spoiled and she was perfect for him.

This author is always a wholesome, sweet, touching read in a world of books trying to he edgy but really espousing "interesting" values. It may not be realistic, but I am trying to not become jaded in a pretty scary world.
There were lots of typos in the book and that drives me crazy! The story itself was okay, nothing special.
Fun romance with a little bit of Christmas and journalism--a great combination!

Cute book...was expecting it to be more Christmas like. Enjoyed it.
Joy Gerbode
I enjoyed this story as I have others by Debbie Macomber.
Fun Christmas story for romantics.
Somewhat boring and repetitive.
