Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Financial and practical advantages! You make it sound about as appealing as a dentist appointment. There’s got to be more of a reason than that for us to get married.”
It was her grandfather’s idea, the whole notion of a marriage between Janine and Zach. An arranged marriage, at that. But the two of them don’t exactly plan on going along with the dear old man’s old-fashioned plan in First Comes Marriage by author Debbie Macomber.
Heeheehee, just look at that 90s cover. I’ll admit it was some nostalgia that drew me to it, looking like something I would’ve pulled off the bookshelf in my seventh grade English class, back in the day. But, hey, sometimes nostalgia makes a book even better.
I enjoyed taking a little break with this romantic comedy. It’s not all fun and games, as Janine and Zach do have to work through some serious stuff in the middle, but then it brightens again, fittingly ending on a delightfully comedic note. Quite a nice story for anyone who’d find pleasure in a sweet and easy romance read.
