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.

Not what I’m use too

It was hard to stay engaged in this story. It was repetitive, slow, and the narrator mainly stayed in the same monotone,

Not for me

I didn’t care for this book at all. Had to speed it up to get through it. I really disliked the story line, the parenting discussions, and how nothing was actually resolved. Also, it made me upset that the main character had an entire portion of her story dedicated to gaining and losing 2 pounds at a time and how focused she was on that. Not a good message and wasn’t necessary for the rest of the story at all. The narrator spoke very slowly and softly, almost whispering sometimes. Overall, this book just wasn’t for me in the slightest.

It was as if the narrator was reading to pre-K !!

Story was ok, nothing really funny or surprising. But the narrator... it took me forever to listen to because she was so soft spoken and lacked animation. It was like being read to by a pre-K teacher.

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.
