    Bueno, elegí este libro para la lectura del #retoRita2 #RitaMacomber del mes de octubre. Pues no sé si será igual en el resto de libros publicados, que tiene un montón, pero este me ha resultado soso, soso... le he dado dos estrellas, porque los últimos capítulos tienen un poco de acción y eso lo salva un poco. Pues os cuento de que va: Jayne tiene que ir a la reunión de antiguas alumnas de su clase pero no quiere ir sola. Han pasado diez años y su vida es tal y como predijeron sus compañeras. Jay Bueno, elegí este libro para la lectura del #retoRita2 #RitaMacomber del mes de octubre. Pues no sé si será igual en el resto de libros publicados, que tiene un montón, pero este me ha resultado soso, soso... le he dado dos estrellas, porque los últimos capítulos tienen un poco de acción y eso lo salva un poco. Pues os cuento de que va: Jayne tiene que ir a la reunión de antiguas alumnas de su clase pero no quiere ir sola. Han pasado diez años y su vida es tal y como predijeron sus compañeras. Jayne es bibliotecaria, bastante sosa en el vestir y con la nariz siempre metida en los libros. Con sus relaciones tampoco es que le haya ido muy bien y a sus veintisiete años aún es virgen. «—Me pasé todo el último curso escuchando las historias que contaban mis compañeras sobre sus aventuras en los asientos de atrás de los coches —suspiró—. Yo nunca viví aventuras como esas. —Y diez años más tarde sigues sin tener nada que contar, ¿verdad? —Exactamente. Y lo que es peor: han pasado diez años y he resultado ser tal y como mis compañeras predijeron: soy bibliotecaria y vivo sola.» Pues Jayne se niega a ir sola a la reunión y demostrar que sus compañeras tenía razón por lo que se propone encontrar al hombre adecuado en los dos meses que faltan. Para ello recurre a sus amigos: los libros. Durante este proceso intentará conocer a hombres mientras se choca una y otra vez con su vecino, Riley. Un hombre misterioso, y sospechoso que Jayne piensa que puede ser un delincuente pues lo ha visto haciendo trapicheos raros. Al principio cada encuentro termina con alguna burla o encontronazo, pero poco a poco los encuentros dan lugar a una amistad en la que Riley le propondrá ser su acompañante a la reunión y que con el roce acabaran enamorándose. Pero el misterioso Riley oculta algo que pondrá en peligro la relación que acaba de empezar. Pues nada la historia sosa, bastante predecible muy de la época (al fin y al cabo se publicó en 1987) de Riley casi no conocemos nada más que lo obvio, y de Jayne es una pavisosa a la que no hay quien aguante y juntos son demasiado pegajosos y empalagosos, yo he visto un exceso de azúcar y un defecto de pimienta, ya que nuestro maromo al enterarse de que la moza está sin estrenar, ni corto ni perezoso se propone hacer las cosas bien, o sea mantenerla casta y pura hasta el matrimonio... en fin un rollo. Lo bueno es que es muy corto y lo leí en un solo día.

    Not one of my favorites from Debbie (& I've read a lot). In theory, the premise was good, but highly unlikely. The characters seem a little fake and the story is somewhat dated. However, if you're already a big Debbie Macomber fan, go ahead & read it. If not, start with the Cedar Cove or Blossom Street series first!!! Not one of my favorites from Debbie (& I've read a lot).

    I'm home sick and this was exactly the right book to read. There were no surprises, I didn't have to concentrate, it was just fluff to keep me awake (mostly). It's a romance - it's what you expect - girl meets boy - conflict - girl gets boy. I'm home sick and this was exactly the right book to read.

    An easy, mindless, but fun, beach read. Predictable, but fun getting there.

    Undying Love This is a sweet story of two people who meet, face complications, but ultimately end up together. It is not a long story, so I am forgiving of the rather fast pace this couple experiences falling in love. I find it a bit unbelievable that a "plain Jane" spends 10 years making few efforts, if any, to build her self confidence and her personal image, but goes into full throttle after simply meeting a man who also lives at her apartment complex. But this is a fun, quick, happily ever af Undying Love This is a sweet story of two people who meet, face complications, but ultimately end up together.

    From Depression to Laughter and Love Again Let's face it! When I saw a Macomber book for just $2.99, I jumped on it! You are without a doubt, my all time favorite author. I'm smiling to myself just thinking about it. You create characters that capture my imagination with dialogue and humor that I truly enjoy. You have widespread readership so please keep 'em comin'.

    As a librarian myself, I was excited to find this book with the main character being a librarian. I enjoyed the characters. The relationship development between the two was entertaining and engaging. I highly recommend it.

    Meh, but cute and quick. I consider these books an intermezzo of sorts. A little cleanser between more serious books. Or not. But like the intermezzo course it cleans the palate with it's refreshing lightness and that's it's job. Meh, but cute and quick. I consider these books an intermezzo of sorts.

    A nice quick read. A librarian meets a man that doesn't seem to have all the best qualities. Somehow they work it out. A nice quick read. A librarian meets a man that doesn't seem to have all the best qualities. Somehow they work it out.

But Jayne eventually discovers his secret and leaps to the wrong conclusion ... causing some hilarious moments (especially when she unknowingly calls the local police on the FBI!) A bit slow in places, and Jayne does tend to cry at the drop of a hat, but a sweet no brain read all the same :)

    Jayne is your typical librarian. She loves what she does as a children's librarian, but would ideally love to have someone to share her life with, but it hasn't happened so no big deal really. That is until her high school reunion invitation is issued and good old plain Jayne wants to show up to her reunion and not be exactly what everyone thought she would be. This is a lighthearted romance, which is exactly why I chose this book. it was well written and easily consumed. A great escape from real Jayne is your typical librarian.

    Well, as romance goes, there is quite a lot to borrow from this book, so is a lot NOT to. Librarian Jayne Gilbert needs a man - a man she can bring to her high school reunion. She wants to prove to her former classmates that she isn't the lonely bookworm they predicted she'd become. So, naturally, Jayne turns to a book. It's called How to Pick Up a Man. And it works, even if she attracts the attention of good-looking Riley Chambers only because she's carrying that book, not because she followed Well, as romance goes, there is quite a lot to borrow from this book, so is a lot NOT to.
