    Laughter in the Rain is the eleventh stand-alone romance by popular American author, Debbie Macomber. When Abby Carpenter meets Tate Harding, she is immediately attracted. Her relationship with Logan Fletcher seems dull and predictable, so when Tate asks her out, she doesn’t really hesitate. But it seems that Logan isn't willing to be a third wheel: he starts to take their romance to the next level, and when Abby continues to see Tate, gives her an ultimatum.

When Abby Carpenter meets Tate Harding, she is immediately attracted. Her relationship with Logan Fletcher seems dull and predictable, so when Tate asks her out, she doesn’t really hesitate. But it seems that Logan isn't willing to be a third wheel: he starts to take their romance to the next level, and when Abby continues to see Tate, gives her an ultimatum. Abby soon realises that all is not as it first appears with Tate, and that she misses Logan’s company more than she ever expected to. This romance is not up to Macomber’s usual standard: Abby is irritating in her attitudes, Tate is selfish and proud, and just needs to grow a set and get over himself, and Logan, least annoying of the lot, is too quick to jump to conclusions. They all need to communicate more, and there was a bit too much male ego happening. A happy ending I’m not sure this lot deserved.

    This was a book I would not recommend to others. It was about a girl who was dating a guy for about a year. She meets a new guy and can't stop thinking about him. Her boyfriend is a jerk and keeps telling her to choose between him and the new guy. She picks the new guy, but then misses her boyfriend. They seem to fight and leave each other on every other page.

The girl finally figures out that the new guy doesn't even like her romantically and just needs her help. She promised not to telling anyone including her boyfriend. This causes more fighting and leaving each other. The boyfriend is jealous and starts dating another girl. It is all very high schoolish and not an enjoyable read.

    This book is pretty good and an easy read. It definitely plays out like a fantasy and any self-withstanding woman/man would not have put up with a bunch of crap that happens in this book, regardless of who started what. Everyone has an egotistical attitude and selfish behavior. Abby is a mess and shouldn’t have bent the truth to hide Tate from Logan. In reality, Abby would’ve told Logan the truth if she really loved him, regardless of what Tate felt or didn’t want to reveal. The fact that Tate w This book is pretty good and an easy read.

In reality, Abby would’ve told Logan the truth if she really loved him, regardless of what Tate felt or didn’t want to reveal. The fact that Tate wasn’t honest from the beginning and played into Logan’s jealousy only made things worse for their relationship. And for Abby to allow to it continue is absurd. Logan jumps to too many conclusions on his own and never allows anyone to speak! Geez, all of the characters need to get over themselves! Lol but overall it is a good read.

    I read some of the reviews on this book. A lot of people did not like it. One s aid she wanted to yell at the characters because they were driving her crazy. My thought, well done Debbie Macomber. You made your character so real, some one actually felt emotional about them. I think the book dealt with real life people and problems.

    What drivel. The two characters in this book deserve each other. I usually love this author’s books, but this was a waste of my time. It was so forgettable that it wasn’t only a dull read, I was almost at the end (skimming much of it) when a particular incident reminded me that I’ve read it before! Twice I’ve plodded through this forgettable snooze.

    I’m a fan of Debbie Macomber and am just now delving into her earlier works from the 1990s. The first book I read by her was “Cottage by the Sea”, and that one got me hooked on her style of storytelling and her way of illustrating the dynamics of emotions and relationships. I can recommend this book to people who enjoy romance as well as those looking for an uplifting read. I always take away something valuable from her books. Among her earlier short works, I also recommend “Shadow Chasing”. I a I’m a fan of Debbie Macomber and am just now delving into her earlier works from the 1990s.

Happy reading! :)

    Enjoyed but issues I enjoyed this book and read it in a single afternoon but I have issues with the couple. For two people to end up engaged at the end and have such major issues such as selfish pride, lack of trust and honesty it begs the question of if there would actually be a happily ever after? Other then that; the book moved right along and was very entertaining. I wanted to know how it would even if I didn’t fully care for that ending.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I couldn't even finish this book. The main character has the maturity and depth of a young teenager. And, the 30-year-old boyfriend, Logan, has barely kissed her after a year of dating...not buying it. Oh, and she cannot understand why the guy she has been dating for a year is upset when she goes out with someone else. Don't waste your time on this book. I only quit a book once every couple of years - that is how bad this was. I couldn't even finish this book. The main character has the maturity and depth of a young teenager.

    Trust in Love This is another great book by Debbie Macomber, my favorite author. She manages to capture believable personalities that enhance her stories to the max. She certainly doesn't rely on sensationalism to include sexual scenes in her literary endeavors but depends on the reader's imagination to determine what is happening.

    This romance is problematic in today's world. Tate said he didn't like how Logan acted like he owned Abby and he's right. This hasn't aged well on a few levels, if I'm worried today I don't stalk someone's house, I text them. This romance is problematic in today's world.

    Again, I wish we had the opportunity to put in a negative rating. This story reads like a Hallmark movie--no, that is an insult to Hallmark. The characters were loving each other on one page and hating each other on the next page. Yuck!

By the end I was like WTF!!! I'd have walked away from Logan so fast.... Him asks all his no trust for the girl he is supposedly in love with!!! Logan needed a good throat punch and told to screw off.... I was enjoying this read very much, the last few chapters I was getting frustrated with Abby.. By the end I was like WTF!!!

    Abby has been dating Logan for over a year. He has never told her he loves her. Tate enters the picture. He finally asks Abby for her help. She can't tell Logan the truth and asks him to trust her. They seemed a little wishy-washy to me. Logan acts like he can control her. Abby has been dating Logan for over a year.

    DNF @ 10% I stopped reading this when the boyfriend met the new guy and got extremely jealous and defensive. Why was the new guy even in her apartment, wasn’t he stalking her?? Nothing about this made sense to me. So many red flags hence the dnf.

    Great Story! I always feel better after reading one of Debbie Macomber 's stories. This one did the same for me. I get so involved in it that I forget all my problems. Great Story!

    It was not what I expected it to be. The story seems to be a bit childish and the problem, small. I was expecting to be balling my eyes out and at the same time feel the love as I did with her other books.
