Excellent chick lit June 3 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Maine schoolteacher Ruby Miller evaluates her relationship with her fiancé Tom Truby using a New York Times Article's fifteen questions as a gauge. The first fourteen are a resounding affirmation that she and Tom belong together. Question fifteen asks: "Is their relationship strong enough to withstand challenges? Ruby truthfully is unsure as she doubts Tom has ever met anyone like her twin sister hurricane Stella, the Manhattan muse.

While Ruby struggles with that last question Stella informs her that her future brother-in-law is wrong for Ruby who will be bored to death within one year of blissful matrimony. She also says she is pregnant with a hunk whose name begins with Ja, but not exactly sure. Stella asks Ruby to come with her to Nevada so that she can find the dad of her unborn who she says mentioned Vegas and at the same her sister can find her loving groove. Ruby knows she has issues as she dreams of schoolteacher Nick McDermott instead of Tom terrific so she agrees.

QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE MARRYING is what chick lit is all about when the characters and their scenarios are excellent. The twins are a delight as they go cross country seeking answers and finding more questions. Witty and amusing, the strong story line deals with complex personal issues involving families such as rejections, desertions, and especially what is true love and is that enough to cement a permanent relationship. Readers will ask two questions afterward of Melissa Senate: what next and when?

Surprisingly poignant, fun read Dec 24 2008
By Megan - Published on
Format: Paperback
A surprisingly endearing and moving read, I loved 'Questions to Ask Before Marrying.' I expected a light story -- and I did get one -- but I actually stumbled across something with a lot of heart, too.

Ruby Miller is about to marry Tom Truby, a dependable and all-around good guy with whom she's living and planning a future. Her twin sister Stella is less than pleased with this match, believing that Ruby is simply settling for Tom because he's loyal -- and nothing like their father, who abandoned the family when the girls were young.

Add in the sudden confession of love by Ruby's good friend and fellow teacher Nick and you have a real quandry -- should Ruby move forward with Tom as planned, or is Nick -- dangerous, handsome, unpredictable -- really what she's been searching for? These are definitely questions to ask before marrying.

I loved the storyline between the sisters most -- though incredibly different, Stella and Ruby are unequivocally devoted to one another through everything. A separate storyline requiring the Miller twins, former child stars, to journey to Las Vegas is as hilarious as it is endearing. And the ending was perfect!

Definitely pick up this one if you're a "chick lit" fan!

Great chick-lit! Sept. 9 2008
By pinkcypress - Published on
Format: Paperback
A great chick-lit book! Twin sisters, Ruby and Stella, drive to Las Vegas in search of the father of Stella's baby - and to give Ruby time to decide once and for all if she's marrying the right guy! Some of it was fairly predictable, but I honestly was thrilled with the way it ended. All the way through, the characters are wonderful - not just the main characters, but the ones that Stella and Ruby meet along the way. The sisters bond, grow up a bit, and learn a lot about themselves.
Cute, Not Senate's Best Work May 6 2010
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love Melissa Senate and nearly everything she writes. See Jane Date is one of my all-time favorite books and I enjoyed reading The Breakup Club and the Solomon Sisters Wise Up as well. Right now, I've started her newest book, The Secret of Joy and I have a feeling it will be her best book yet.
Questions to Ask Before Marrying fell a little short for me, though. The commonly used "road trip" in an effort for the characters to find themselves usually leaves me cold, as it brings a sense of tedium to the story. The affair Ruby has is actually the most interesting part of the book. Her sister's story wasn't as compelling and the author's "fairy tale/what a gosh darned coincidence" ending left me rolling my eyes. Mainly, because that kind of tidy resolution never happens in real life!
Senate's strong point is the gutsy realism she provides to her storylines. I hope her newest book provides a better ending than this one did. However, Melissa, I still remain a fan!
Another Enjoyable Read from Melissa Senate March 6 2010

Questions to Ask Before Marrying was a great adventure in self discovery and I enjoyed hitching along. I appreciate that I never know how the Melissa's books will end; I find myself finding good reasons for the main character to go either direction and I am thankful I didn't have to make that decision. Stella, the supporting character/sister, was great, her unique quirkiness was a bit like a natural disaster and kept the story lively and unpredictable. Thanks for another enjoyable read Melissa!
