Fairy Tale Weddings by Debbie Macomber

I dedicated the month of February to reading a few good romance books and when it comes to books and romance, one of my favorite authors is Debbie Macomber!

Pub. Date: November 2009
Publisher: Mira
Format: Mass Market Paperback, 336pp
ISBN-13: 9780778327028
ISBN: 0778327027
From the publisher:

Cindy and the Prince

Thorndike Prince—handsome, levelheaded, successful—is a high-ranking New York City executive. Cindy Territo is the janitor who cleans his office after hours.
There's no reason they'd ever meet, no reason he'd even notice her—until, on a
whim and a dare, Cindy crashes his company's Christmas ball. She dances with her
Prince and then, like a proper Cinderella, flees at midnight, leaving her heart

Some Kind of Wonderful

Beautiful inside and out, New York socialite Judy Lovin values family over fortune and fame. So when her father's business collapses and his most powerful enemy offers to help—in exchange for Judy's company—she agrees to join John McFarland on his remote Caribbean island. It isn't long before she discovers that John's far from the beast he seems to be!

What did I like about this book?

The book was written in true Debbie Macomber style ~ good story, great characters. It was entertaining, delightful and allowed me a quick get away for a few hours into the world of romance, fantasy and love. One of the things I just love about Debbie Macomber's books is that she writes wholesome romance books and she sure can write a great story!

What did I not like about this book?

Actually, there wasn't anything that I didn't like. Yes, the story line was a tad bit cheesy but I knew that going into reading this book.

What did I find most interesting?

I have read many of Debbie Macomber's books that she wrote later in her career but I am only just beginning to read some of her earlier works. This book was a reprint of two of her earlier books and it is so interesting to compare her writing style from then till now.

My impression of this book?

It's a keeper!

We all need a little romance in our lives.
I'm doing some blog visiting of my own today. Since returning to work full time there's not much time. I'm glad to hear all is well in your neck of the woods.

A month or two ago I was listening to a Macomber book on audio CD...I liked it...very good story...but I stopped listening before the book was through because I thought the scene was getting a bit too heated for me. Would you say that I should have kept listening, or do some of her books get a bit sexual?
