Katherine O'Connor often spends her days at a cozy cafe on Blossom Street in Seattle where she writes Christmas letters for other people. She's good at making their everyday lives sound more interesting. More humorous. More dramatic.
But for Dr. Wynn Jeffries, who also frequents the cafe, Christmas means lies and deception. In fact, the renowned child psychologist recommends that parents "Bury Santa Under the Sleigh". Katherine, however, feels that his parenting philosophy is one big mistake, based on her four-year-old twin nieces, who are being raised according to his "Free Child" methods.
She argues with Wynn about his theories, while he argues that her letters are nothing but lies. They disagree about practically everything and yet, somehow, they don't really want to stop arguing.
As the days and nights move closer to Christmas, Katherine and Wynn both discover that love means accepting your differences. And that Christmas is about the things you share.

Light christmas romance. adequite plot development. Not normally a big romance fan - but this was a pleasant enough festive story. Wish it had ended abit stronger though. Seemed to just fizzle out.
I got this book because I was feeling festive and wanted something Christmas themed. I hadn't listened/read any of Debbie Macomber's books, and I'm not sure I'd be eager to try another as this one was just okay.
This booked seemed a little different from Debbie Maccomber's other books... Somewhat sarcastic.... And I LOVED it! The performer was perfect for this story! Definitely 5 stars!
Originally, I listened to a copy from my public library. I rarely listen or read books more than once since there are so many available to choose from. But, this book has become one of the few books I enjoy each year during the holiday season. After enjoying the library book so much, I purchased a copy from Audible. There is a good deal of humor in this book and I enjoy that it is a light, fun story. Though I am not a person who adores the holidays, this book usually helps to put me in the "spirit of the season."
I knew for sure that this was a poor choice when one of the characters "reads the future" from the contents of a cat litter box. Save your $.
Oh my gosh, this book was terrible. The story was painful and the narrator sounded like she was reading to a group of small, very dull children. Don't waste your time or credit!
