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.

Cute story

I loved this cute romance, that it was set around the Christmas holiday made it even better. The characters were fun, the storyline was different, it was all around so enjoyable. I loved the narrator she was perfect for this book.

Cute story, didn't connect with the narrator

I almost stopped listening after the first 45 minutes, but decided to give it a second try. Very cute story, but I couldn't connect with the narrator. Her voice just didn't do it for me.

Hmm...

Being A Christmas novel, I expected it to be fairy tale like. But I found so many parts of this cute little story more than predictable. It's not a bad, short little read but don't expect any substance.
