Publisher's Summary

Emily Springer, widowed mother of one, decides to leave Leavenworth, Washington, to spend Christmas with her daughter in Boston.

Charles Brewster, history professor, curmudgeon and resident of Boston, wants to avoid Christmas altogether. He figures a prison town should be nice and quiet over the holidays - except he’s thinking of the wrong Leavenworth!Through an internet site, Charles and Emily arrange to swap houses for the holiday. So Emily goes to Boston - and discovers that her daughter has gone to Florida. And Charles arrives in Leavenworth to discover that it’s not the prison town - it’s Santa’s village! The place is full of Christmas trees, Christmas music and...elves.

Meanwhile, Emily’s friend Faith Kerrigan travels to Leavenworth to visit her and instead finds Charles the grinch. Then Charles’s brother, Ray, shows up at his home in Boston to discover that he isn’t there - but Emily is.

Through all the mix-ups and misunderstandings, amid the chaos and confusion, romance begins to emerge in unexpected ways. Because everything changes at Christmas!

    "Like Holiday Snowflakes"
    Would you listen to Trading Christmas again? Why?

    It was a lovely fluffy book for the holidays. Occupied my mind while working on Christmas gifts. Much better story an the Hallmark movie of the same piece.

    "Good read with different plot"
    If you could sum up Trading Christmas in three words, what would they be?

    intriguing refreshing nostalgic


    Which character – as performed by Renee Raudman – was your favorite?

    did not have fav as they are all integral. you start out with one person not being as important and they turn out to be critical.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    good to do while doing housework, etc

    "Just lame"
    Would you try another book from Debbie Macomber and/or Renee Raudman?

    No, thank you, just no depth, no thrill, no development.


    Has Trading Christmas turned you off from other books in this genre?

    hopefully not


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    it was mediocre


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth a credit - got it on sale for $4.95 - which is acceptable. Would not recommend.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Joys in the Unexpected"

    This sweet, funny story is full of the unexpected . . . and a comedy of errors . . . and like all of Debbie Macomber's books has the healing balm of love, forgiveness, and learning from our own mistakes. And just like life, sometimes we find ourselves in situations we would never choose, but really NEED to get us out of the rut we are in. Great listen for the holidays.

    "Very predictable, but still good"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was predictable, but then again that is kind of a Debbie Macomber style. It was still a lovely, happy book.

    "Amusing and interesting."

    It kept me intrigued as to what would happen next. I smiled often as the characters interacted and revealed more of themselves. The author is expert at writing about human emotions in relationships. A lighthearted Christmas adventure sure to please.

    Story
    "Christmas with a Laugh"

    This may possibly bet the funniest, most unique Christmas story that I’ve ever read. Macomber throws her cast of characters into some very unique situations that you can’t help but laugh at. She creates an inescapable world for her readers to revel in. Macomber’s descriptions and narrative are so vivid that you cannot help but picture everything. At the same time everything remains realistic and in the moment.

    Macomber’s brilliant cast carries this story forward without a hitch. Getting to know these characters was a uniquely thought provoking time. As a reader you get to know the main characters and the supporting cast alike. I quite enjoyed getting to know them.

    Overall this was a captivatingly hilarious read that I’d definitely recommend.

    "Not bad for what it is"

    I was looking for a sweet, mindless listen that had something to do with Christmas and a happy ending. This fit the bill nicely. The narration is fine, the story is fine.

    Story
    "Lacks Christian morals"

    It seemed to me that the story was trying to present itself as family oriented, traditional with warm memories. But it was hard to accomplish in my heart with every one willing to have sex with someone they just recently met. It lacked Christian morals and could not dredge up feelings of family-friendly traditional Christmas memories for me.
