Married in Seattle
by Debbie Macomber
This book was two novellas in one book. Generally I enjoy Ms. Macomber's stories, which I why I picked this book up. I was in Seattle for a family emergency and really wanted something light and fluffy to read, but this book ended up annoying me more than entertaining and distracting me.
To be fair, I should say the first story in the book as I didn't even attempt to read the second story. I found the story just a little too "Harlequin Romance." The lead female character was overly sensitive to every comment or action by the lead male character. It wasn't long before I was screaming at her inside my head to open her eyes and see what was obvious.
I hope the reason the story was so shallow is because it was written to be a quick read in a book of novellas, and doesn't reflect on Ms. Macomber's future works. This was simply far too contrived.
