The Perfect Christmas | [Debbie Macomber]

The Perfect Christmas

For Cassie Beaumont, it's meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at 33, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothing's worked. Not blind dates, not the Internet and certainly not leaving love to chance. What's left? A professional matchmaker. He's Simon Dodson, and he's very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she's astonished when he accepts her as a client.

Publisher's Summary

Christmas perfect?

For Cassie Beaumont, it's meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at 33, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothing's worked. Not blind dates, not the Internet, and certainly not leaving love to chance.

What's left? A professional matchmaker. He's Simon Dodson, and he's very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she's astonished when he accepts her as a client.

Claiming he has her perfect mate in mind, Simon assigns her three tasks to complete before she meets him - three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell ringer, dressing up as Santa's elf at a children's party, and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it all - and she's finally ready to meet her match. But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise!

    First Thought when Finished: The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber was a quick, sweet, and fun Christmas read.

    Story Thoughts: The Perfect Christmas was a sweet Christmas romance! The story was short and sweet but made for a great afternoon read with a hot cup of tea. I love matchmaker storylines so that made me smile. My only complaint was the end was much to quick for me. However, the rest of the story was delightful and fun! Perfect for the season.

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated by Tavia Gilbert / LENGTH 4 hrs and 13 mins


    Tavia is one of my favorite narrators and she did an excellent job with The Perfect Christmas. Her pacing, emotion, and delivery were spot on and I think did the characters justice.

    Final Thoughts: The Perfect Christmas made for a great holiday read.

    "Warm and Fuzzy Christmas"

    I enjoyed this Christmas story. The relationship between the two main characters was very entertaining. At Christmas time it's always nice to hear a warm and fuzzy story with a happy ending. It was exactly what I expected it to be: A romanctic comedy with lots of warm fuzzies...and a little bit of cheese.

    Oh! Almost forgot...um...I have to say that the narrator was a bit annoying for me. She really over-enunciated the words and made me feel like she was reading to a small child.

    "Predictable"

    The plot was predictable and you knew what was going to happen to the characters pretty early on, but it was a fun light listen anyway. Typical of Debbie Macomber's romance stories.

    "Silly"

    Predictable and silly. Not worth the money. Nice narrator voice though.
