THE MATCHMAKER - Debbie Macomber
Need dad. Tall athletic.
Mom pretty. 555-5818.
When Dori saw the ad her eleven-year-old son, Danny, had put
in the Seattle daily newspaper, she nearly fainted with shock.
Widowed several years earlier, Dori had forged a comfortable
life for herself and Danny, but it was a life devoid of male
influence for her precocious son -- and a loving male partner
for her.
And now Danny had run this dreadful ad. To make matters worse
the first man to appear on her doorstep waving the paper in
her face was Gavin Parker, a well-known sports commentator
with a low opinion of marriage-minded women...

a first Harlequin Macomber novel March 26 2009
By wogan - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Matchmakers is Debbie Macomber's first book for Harlequin Books. If you have read her other stories, written later in her career you can see the growth, so that alone, especially if you are a fan of her writing makes this interesting. That also is probably why some would judge this not her best. The plot varies in that the lady, a widow, Dori Robertson is in love but the guy, Gavin doesn't want to be and only realizes at the end that he does indeed care for her. I'm really not giving anything away, because this is the basic plotline of these romances; boy meets girl, they fall in love, have a falling out and reunite for a happy ending. There is also the frequently used plotline of matchmakers putting the couple together, the children as the matchmakers. Don't think this is a criticism, the books and stories are addictive and you will develop a fondness for the characters and wish the book went on for more pages, so that's another plus - a likeable Macomber book

Good But Not Great. Not A Keeper! Dec 21 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Matchmakers is a good but not great romance book from the Harlequin Romance Book Publishing Company and it is just not one of their best and is not one of the author Debbie Macomber's best. It is about a woman named Dori Roberts who is either divorced or a widow and her son decides it is time for her to get a new husband and places an ad in the newspaper and Gavin Parker is a man who sees the ad and gets the wrong idea by thinking that Dori is a man hungry woman, etc and she thinks he is an arrogant jerk, etc.

Wonderfully delightful story March 17 2013
By Sister Jeannie - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was hooked right from the beginning about these two 10 year old children making up their minds that they want their parents to marry each other. Each child has a single parent, and think the other child's parent is just right. They are anxious to have one a mother AND a father! The man in this story has set his heart on NEVER marrying again even though he finds this widow quite enchanting. They devise a scheme to side track the children until the scheme begins to backfire. You will want to enjoy this fun story - it was great!

The Matchmaker by Debbie Macomber May 12 2012
By Laura Johnston - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Great author and she intertwines the characters so well. No, great big surprises, but it so wholesome in this day and age. I ordered this book because the library does not have it and when finished, I will donate so others have the same opportunity to enjoy the book
