    The cynical views of relationships that Macomber starts these stories with are akin to those faced by many of us on a daily basis. At the same time, she overcomes them in a realistic and promising manner that gives hope to those of us reading the stories. They’re the kind of stories that make you cry happy tears, living alongside the characters as they come to grips with their new realities. The well written, intricately crafted tales are fantastic alone, but unforgettable together.

The well written, intricately crafted tales are fantastic alone, but unforgettable together. Rich is a fantastic, down to earth guy. He’s a friend in every sense of the world. Jamie is the type of woman who warms your heart and makes you feel welcome in her life. I loved how strong she was, going after what she wanted, regardless of public opinion. Paul’s tale, on the other hand, was so emotionally infused that it tugged at my heart a little more with every word. Getting to know him and Leah as they come to grips with their loss was both heartbreaking and heart-warming. These two stories were poignant counterpoints to one another, Rich’s making me laugh, and Paul’s bringing me to tears. Through them, Macomber has once again created a work that will leave a smile on your face.

Leah finally decides to quit her job and move in with Paul and his family. She wants to do this because she wants to care for her sister’s children. Since their mother is gone, they are struggling to adjust to their lives without their mom. However, Leah and Paul are attracted to one another. Is it wrong for them to feel this way? After all, Paul was Diane’s husband, and Paul loved Diane. As a matter of fact, everybody loved Diane. Diane was a beautiful outgoing woman and Leah recalled that Diane was always favored by their mother. Plain, intelligent Leah always took a backseat to her beautiful, vivacious sister. Could Paul realistically love Leah, when he was also in love with Leah’s beautiful sister, Diane? I really enjoyed this book. This story showed how people can struggle with romantic feelings which inadvertently result from the death of a spouse. Also, I really felt for Leah – it’s so sad for a woman to grow up, playing second fiddle to their sibling. Growing up like that would certainly create emotional scars, and Leah struggled with how Diane had been favored by their mom. Like most of Macomber’s books, this is a clean, sweet romance and I found it to be highly appealing and realistic. I loved seeing the bond developing between Leah and the children.

    I believe these two books were earlier works of Macomber's and they were not impressive in the least. Both stories were nothing but misunderstandings between the heroes and heroines and hiding their true feelings. Frustration galore! We're together, we're apart. I love you...maybe...or do I?

I was fearful I would have to make an appointment with my chiropractor with all of the whiplash. There was no time that either couple spent happy time together...until the last page or two. I wanted and expected at least a small amount of time to get to know them as couples, to see their love play out and grow. I cannot recommend this book from my point of view but maybe you should give it a try on and see how it fits.

It is a sweet story of two best friends who've had one too many bad dating experiences and have given up on traditional love and marriage. However, both of them badly want a child of their own, so they agree to enter into a marriage of convenience with the intention of producing one via artificial insemination. Things don't exactly go as planned, and before they know it, they've fallen in love. Rich is a wonderful guy and a great friend to Jamie. He's known her since they worked together on the high school year book where they constantly butted heads, but once they worked through those differences, they became the best of friends. Rich has always been there for Jamie. He's the one person she knows she can call day or night if she needs someone to share her problems or help her out. Rich is very responsible and doesn't take Jamie's proposal to father her child lightly. I liked that he refused to simply be a sperm donor, but instead wanted to be involved every step of the way in the process. He also refuses to let Jamie bear the entire burden of pregnancy and raising a child alone. He wants to be a true father in every sense of the word and for that I admired him. The realization that he'd been in love with Jamie for a long time kind of sneaks up on him, but once he figures it out, he knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he wants to be a permanent part of her life if she'll let him. Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I'm not sure I could have made the choices Jamie did to abandon dating and have a child on her own, but I respected her decisions. At least, she wanted someone she knew and trusted to father her baby rather than a stranger, but of course, that led to all sorts of unintended consequences. Jamie was a sweet heroine, but her biggest faults were her stubbornness and lack of communication. She tends to be one of those women who expects her man to decode her odd moods and unspoken words which could be a little frustrating at times. I have to admit though, that Rich was guilty of these things sometimes too. They were both just a little too stubborn for their own good, which led to several arguments. They have a tendency to misinterpret the other's actions, especially after sharing intimacies, which led to even more miscommunications and misunderstandings. Their obstinacy also makes them both afraid to reveal their feelings, leaving them waiting on the other one to say or do something to indicate they want more than a marriage of convenience. I suppose this could be viewed as a comedy of errors, but it did give me pause. I started to wonder if they were going to make it for the long haul since both of them were so reluctant to open up, but once they finally got past expressing their feelings, things seemed to change between them for the better. In Marriage of Inconvenience, readers get to know Rich's two brothers a little better. Paul is a journalist and the only one of the brothers who is already married, which makes him the perfect person to give Rich a little advice on the topic. However, his marital status tragically changes, leading him to become the hero of the next book, Stand-In Wife. Jason is a veterinarian and playboy who has no intention of getting married. He is the closest of Rich's siblings and becomes the hero of the third book, Bride on the Loose. Then there is Rich's sister, Christy's ex-fiancé, James, an attorney who helps Rich and Jamie draw up a legal agreement. I had been a little disappointed that a seemingly good man like James got left out in the cold in the last book of The Manning Sisters duet, so it's nice to know that he'll get his HEA too, the fourth and last in the series, Same Time, Next Year. Overall, Marriage of Inconvenience was a light and easy, but enjoyable read. It contained a lot of themes I typically love, so if Rich and Jamie hadn't been quite so stubborn and hadn't had so many misunderstandings, it probably would have been a keeper for me. As is, I still liked it, and the prospect of Paul, Jason, and James becoming future heroes has sufficiently whetted my appetite for more of “Those Manning Men.” Marriage of Inconvenience was originally published as a stand-alone novel in the Silhouette Special Edition line, and was later reprinted in the single-author anthology The Manning Brides along with the second book of the series. *Stand-In Wife - Stand-In Wife is another gentle contemporary romance in Debbie Macomber's Those Manning Men series. As with the other Manning books so far, this novel didn't have a very involved plotline, but overall, it was sweet and enjoyable. In this one, Paul Manning is suddenly widowed when his wife dies of complications following childbirth. She leaves him with young twin sons and a newborn baby girl to raise. With the multiples stresses of child care, home care, his job, and grieving, Paul is barely keeping his head above water, until his dead wife's sister steps in to help out. With them living in the same house together, unexpected feelings begin to surface, leading to a marriage of convenience and much, much more. Paul is a man at loose ends. He's grieving for the loss of his wife, but at the same time, doesn't have the luxury of taking time to really grieve with three young children to care for. He and his sister-in-law, Leah, bond over their shared loss. When she offers to move in with them, Paul appreciates her help, but his sense of pride sometimes gets in the way. I think it makes him feel rather inadequate as both a man and as a parent that he can't do it all himself. It was kind of amusing that when Paul started having confusing feelings toward Leah, he pushed her toward Rob, a guy she'd only casually dated, but then he experienced unfamiliar jealous feelings when the pair actually went out. Soon his parents convince them to marry, because of Leah having no health insurance and the children, especially baby Kelsey, viewing her as their mother. Of course, by then, Paul knows he's falling for Leah; he just doesn't fully understand the extent of his feelings until faced with the fear of losing her when she thinks she might be pregnant. Even then, he, unfortunately, doesn't go about expressing those feelings in a clear and healthy way. It's not until the end that he figures everything out and is able to tell her how he really feels in a way that she understands. Leah was tremendously selfless to give up her teaching job to move in with Paul and take care of the kids until they're older and in school. Her sister was her only family, so Leah loves and misses her deeply. With her sister gone, Leah sees this as an opportunity to stay close to the kids, who are now the only family she has left, as well as a way to fulfill a "promise" she made to Diane when her sister appeared to her in a dream the night she died. Leah goes into it believing this to be a temporary arrangement, but when she starts having feelings for Paul and realizes she would never be able to leave the children, accepting his marriage proposal isn't a difficult choice. Still, she believes it to be little more than a marriage of convenience, because she thinks Paul could never truly love her the way he loved her sister. They're just too different. Diane was the beautiful, vivacious one, while Leah was the shy, bookish, plain Jane. Although Leah always loved her sister and never blamed or envied her, their mother always treated Diane differently, like she was the golden child, while Leah was only second-best. This still makes her feel inadequate in more ways than one, especially when she misunderstands some of Paul's words and actions. Then Leah begins, for the first time in her life, to envy Diane even though she's dead. It takes a long time for Leah to finally realize that Paul loves her every bit as much as he did Diane, but in a different way. Things get rolling for these two when they share a passionate kiss. Both are rocked to the core but afraid to admit it, which unfortunately leads to them reading things into the other's reactions that aren't entirely true. They have an almost impossible time communicating how they really feel, because they are both confused by their emotions. Paul is still in love with his dead wife and feeling guilty for loving another woman too. It doesn't help matters that the woman in question is his wife's sister. At the same time, he thinks she was repulsed by his kiss, when of course, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Leah loved every minute of it but has trouble believing Paul could be attracted to her after being in love with her gorgeous, outgoing sister. As a result, they spend a lot of time around each other walking on egg shells. This lasts throughout most of the book, with the primary conflict being various misunderstandings, based on miscommunication, lack of communication, and misperceptions. This isn't my favorite form of conflict, but it seems to be par for the course in all of Debbie Macomber's books I've read so far. It wasn't too bad here, because at least, I understood most of the time where they were coming from. However, it could sometimes be a little frustrating that they didn't communicate better. Stand-In Wife brings back Paul's brother, Rich and his wife, Jamie (Marriage of Inconvenience). We get to see the happy couple and their growing family a little ways down the road from their book. The last Manning sibling standing, Jason, becomes a sounding board for Paul and has some surprisingly good advice for someone who's never been married. This carefree bachelor becomes the hero of the next book, Bride on the Loose. Overall, Stand-In Wife was a light and easy, but enjoyable read that has left me looking forward to seeing what's in store for Jason. Stand-In Wife was originally published as a stand-alone novel in the Silhouette Special Edition line, and was later reprinted in the single-author anthology The Manning Brides along with the first book of the series.

Although predictable and somewhat repetitive, I really enjoyed Rich and Jamie's story. Rich is charming, funny and perhaps the most 'real' out of the characters Macomber created. Paul's story was readable but the least enjoyable out of all the Manning's so far. I couldn't wrap my head around him falling in love and marrying his dead wife's sister. Recommend: if you are looking for a fun, quick, easy, G-rated romance, I really enjoyed 'Marriage of Inconvenience.' You can skip 'Stand-In Wife.

    This book was an easy read. I really liked 21 wishes so I thought I would try some other books. I liked the stories. Definitely a romance novel ...however not every chapter is about sex. Don't get me wrong, there are some intimate scenes but not explicit. I liked the two stories in this book. I really developed a liking for the male characters. The women were a little nuts at times and I wondered if people are really like that. All in all, it was a nice love story and .... had two happy endings! This book was an easy read.

    This is one of those books I'll only read when there's nothing better. It wasn't horrible, but it certainly wasn't great either.

    I don't know if I should even put this in the 'read' pile because when it came down to it, I couldn't finish the second story. I have read stories like that before and it didn't squick me like this one ... oh well. The writing was not too bad (too much hysteria from the females and stoic non-communication from the males ... oh wait, that's just like real life, ha ha). It just wasn't my cup of tea.

    "The first story (Marriage of Inconvienence) was rather contrived. Too many times, this couple was mad at each other for not calling, when they had both called but not left messages. If ever anyone needed caller ID it was these two!" The second story (Stand In Wife) was better than the first. At least these two had some legitimate concerns. Happy endings all around.

    Book #1- Marriage of Inconvenience- Jamie was afraid that the long-standing friendship that they have had will get ruined if they get married. And it's a valid concern. Misunderstanding after misunderstanding crops up. For two people who communicated so well before now suddenly that all came to a screaming halt. I didn't really enjoy this story all that much,it was just okay. It was emotional yes but it was also somewhat predictable too. I gave this story 3 Stars on Amazon. Book #2- Stand-In Wife Book #1- Marriage of Inconvenience- Jamie was afraid that the long-standing friendship that they have had will get ruined if they get married. And it's a valid concern. Misunderstanding after misunderstanding crops up. For two people who communicated so well before now suddenly that all came to a screaming halt. I didn't really enjoy this story all that much,it was just okay. It was emotional yes but it was also somewhat predictable too. I gave this story 3 Stars on Amazon. Book #2- Stand-In Wife This one is my favorite of the two. 4 Amazon Stars I liked this story and found it pretty interesting when it came to the challenges that Paul and Leah faced. They were both such loving people caught up in grief at first. The emotional struggles were really well done. As was some of the guilt of their new feelings for each other. And they don't know how to trust those new feelings either. Paul still loves his first wife, Diane but he cares for Leah. It causes him to struggle with how can that be? He finds him being attracted to her and confuses him even more. Leah had always been made to feel less than when she was compared to her sister Diane. Diane was her mother's favorite child and she wasn't shy about treating her better than Leah. Leah was shy, quieter, smart and considered herself plain. One great thing is that her sister Diane NEVER put her down. She was in fact her best friend as well as her beloved sister. So she lost a lot when Diane died. I liked the Manning family, both the children and the in-laws. They added flavor to the story. And they gave Leah something she had never had before, more people who cared for her. A new family since she had almost no one else left alive. One of my favorites had to be Paul's brother Jason. He was the only non-married sibling in the group but he was smart when it came to relationships. He helped Paul sort things out. He did it by listening and just speaking a few observations that helped Paul zoom into some truths.

    This installment of the Manning trilogy was an easy read. It actually does show its age in content and style of romance type writing. Both stories have the usual man/woman/want/don't want/misunderstanding and way too much thinking on the characters parts.

    I normally enjoy books by this author but not her earlier ones, which is the category in which this book falls. This is two stories that are connected in storyline and characters. Both books have fairly far-fetched plots. However, what I really didn't like was that the women in these books were silly, immature and irritating. Also, although there were no explicit sex scenes, there was plenty of talk about sex, which I never enjoy. From here on out, I will stick with her newer books.

    I really only started reading Debbie Macomber mainly because of her featured books on Hallmark Channel. She is a Christian Author and for the most part writes decent, mostly clean novels. I do like her style of writing. She is a good story teller and I have enjoyed the stories that she has written/that Ive read. there are some books that I have found easier to read than others for flow. i have enjoyed her older books so far.

    It took me 2 months to read this book (in between i was reading other books). Debbie Macomber is my favourite author but this book doesn't work well for me. I feel she is better off in her other books, especially her Cedar Cove series. But i managed to finish reading this book instead of giving up since I already purchased the book. It is a light read, a love story. But nothing spectacular.

    If these stories were set in the mid-20th century, I'd take no exception to them but they aren't. The stories are too old school conservative for me with marriage without courtship and marrying dead wife's sister because it was the right thing to do. no thanks
