This Matter of Marriage by Debbie Macomber

If I want to get married and have a family (and I do), it's time for a plan!!

—from Hallie McCarthy's diary

The alarm on Hallie's biological clock is buzzing away. She's hitting the big three-0 and there's no prospect of marriage, no man in sight. But Hallie's an organized, goal-setting kind of person. She gives herself a year to meet Mr. Knight in Shining Armor. But all her dates are disasters. (There's the cheapskate and the sex fiend and…well, never mind.)

Too bad she can't just fall for her good-looking neighbor, Steve Marris. He's definitely not her type. Anyway, Steve's busy trying to win back his ex-wife, Mary Lynn, who's busy getting married—but not to Steve. Life would be so much simpler if he could fall for someone else. Like…Hallie.

They're friends, though—and sometimes friends become lovers. Sometimes friends become more….

I love reading this book so much! I have read most of Debbie Macomber's books and this is one of my favourites!

This was a terrific story that is modern day. She dates so many losers, and I crack a rib laughing at all her stories, to finally fall in love with her neighbor/friend. I couldn't put the book down once I started it. It's definately worth the read!

It was very entertaining and funny in spots. I looked forward to picking it up everyday.

The characters were well developed. However they seemded to spend too much of the book not knowing their true feelings for each other. Hallie was main character but one gets to see more of the happpiness of the best freinds. I would rather have had more details of how things went for Hallie than the best friends. When Hallie gets together with Steve the book ends. I like Jayne Krentz romance style more. I lkie to see more of the happily ever after detailed

I had so much fun losing myself in the characters of this book. It was very had to put down. I found myself sneaking peeks at the pages on my phone throughout the day, because I kept thinking about what's happening with Hallie! WONDERFUL BOOK!

This book is enjoyable to read. The characters were believable and entertaining. The plot was a little predictable but, nonetheless, the story was one I wanted to keep on reading. I would recommend this book for others to read. If you like a romantic tale with some humor added in... you will like this one.

I enjoyed this book so much! I have read most of Debbie Macombers book and this is now one of my favorites! Great characters. Cute story!

I love all of Debbie Macomber's books, and this one was one of my favorites. Her writing is so descriptive that you feel like you understand how the characters are feeling at that time in their life. I hope that she writes another book along this storyline of a young woman approaching 30, like me.

I read this some years ago and I remembered it when I found it on the nook, so bought it again. Loved it couldn't put it down. Lots of fun just reading how Hallie and Steve discovered their love for each other in This Matter of Marriage. Read it you will not put it down.
