IF NOT FOR YOU by Debbie Macomber


Romance is not my preferred reading, however, Debbie Macomber books are usually good. I found this one predictable and at times uninteresting. Like all her books the characters are important. Beth Prudhomme and Sam Carney met on a blind date. Leaving the date Beth is severely injured in automobile accident. Sam stays with her until the first responders arrive. This is the start of their love affair. Beth is seeking independence from her parents and moved to Portland, Oregon where her Aunt Sunshine is living. Beth and Sam are both musically and create pleasing music together. Beth’s Mother does not like Sam and attempts to interfere. There are subplots concerning other characters that woven skillfully together to move the story. I this recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Random House Publishing – Ballantine through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I am not generally a romance reader either, but I have read several Debbie Macomber books that I like so I couldn’t pass this one up and was not disappointed. Oddly enough the first book I read by her was a sale book I picked up at Walmart on gratitude. It was very good.

    • Debbie a good romance author. I like her Cedar Cove and Sunshine mysteries. Both set in Washington state. Also brought at Wal-Mart. Long before I had my Kindle.

        It shouldn’t matter where a mystery is set, but it does–not only from the perspective of how the events play out and how accurately the details are described, but also from the emotional connections if the reader is from that area. I enjoy mysteries regardless of their location, but I feel a little extra pull with books set in the South or the Southwest.

      • I agree with you nothing will turn me off to find wrong information about an area I know. That is why I like I A J Jance so well. I know both the areas she writes. I like them set anywhere.
