Publisher's Summary

Celebrate Christmas on Blossom Street with a brand-new romantic comedy from New York Times best-selling author Debbie Macomber.

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.

Just okay

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.

light christmas romance

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.

Funny but repetitive

This book was about two people who were enemies but fell in love. The premise was good, but it felt repetitive. I wanted to love it.

Love Christmas Books by Macomber

After getting into the book I loved it. It did take a few chapters to draw me in and I almost didn't finish but I am glad I did. Loved the story and characters. Easy, joyful read for the Christmas season.

Not worth it

I love short, light hearted romances, but this one really did nothing for me. Much of it was over the top. The narrator's voice was a bit too sweet, also, which didn't help. At some point, the main character said she missed him after only 3 days of being apart, or something like that. Blech. The way she said it, I just felt like gagging. And I'm telling you, I love cheesy romances, but even I have my limits. And the main male character's views on parenting were just ridiculous. And yet, SHE came crawling back to HIM at the end ready to cave in and do whatever she had to to get him back. She called it fighting for them, but don't be fooled. She was crawling. I usually like Debbie Macomber, but I was disappointed with this one.

Christmas stories are good if you want something short to read.

This book took me a while to really get involved. I like it being audible. The short stories are okay but I prefer a novel.

Light and lively

Written with a sense of humor. All of the characters have an ability to laugh at themselves. Christmas cats and some family slapstick
