First Comes Marriage
by Debbie Macomber

Anton Hartman believes that he’s found the perfect husband for his spirited granddaughter Janine, but she can’t stand Zach Thomas . . .

Janine Hartman loved her grandfather dearly – but she balked at his plan to choose her a husband. Zach Thomas, the intended groom, didn’t like it any better.

Zach had recently merged his business with the Hartman family firm, and that was the only Hartman-Thomas merger he wanted. But Grandfather had other ideas, ideas belonging to a different place, a different time, when marriages were arranged by families. “It would be a perfect match,” he insisted. “You two suit each other.”

Zach and Janine didn’t agree. In fact, they agreed on only one thing – that Gramps was a stubborn, meddling old man. But . . . what if he was right?

This is a first-time regular print hardcover edition of a title previously available as a mass market paperback.
