Publisher's Summary

That summer - more than 10 years ago, while they were still in high school - Noelle McDowell and Thomas Sutton fell secretly in love. Secretly because their mothers had been locked in a bitter feud for decades. But despite the animosity between Sarah McDowell and Mary Sutton, Noelle planned to elope with Thom. Until he jilted her.

This Christmas Noelle McDowell is home to celebrate the holidays with her family. (After all, December 25 is also her birthday.) Unfortunately, Noelle's feelings about home - or, rather, her hometown of Rose, Oregon - were changed forever the day Thomas Sutton broke her heart.

This Christmas the feuding mothers find themselves working together to fill Christmas baskets for charity. What irony! And what an opportunity for reconciliation - if only they could see it.

This Christmas Noelle and Thom discover they're still in love. Regardless of their mothers' reactions, they want to be together. Is that possible? Can old rivalries be set aside? Will Sarah's Christmas daughter have a second chance with Mary's charming son?

Maybe she will - this Christmas!

Good story, Terrible narrator

The person reading this audio book sounded as though she was just trying g to get through it. She read with the same enthusiasm she might read a boring g grocery list.

A 20 year Fued!

When one women refused to grant forgiveness to a friend, over a small digression, how this grew bigger and bigger over the years. It almost cost the happiness of two grown children.
But an accident and a flask of scotch showed the ladies what was truly important!

Did the narrator bother anyone else?

I am a Debbie Macomber fan and so far I have enjoyed the story, predictable, a light read. But I am struggling with the narrator! It's as if she is reading the entire book as one of the snooty mothers. It's quite exasperating, which is exactly how the narrator sounds. It's borderline ruining the listen.

Love and forgiveness

It was a delightful book. Christmas is a time for celebration of Jesus birth and love and forgiveness for all.

Trite

You don't expect much from a Christmas romance...just a little romance and a little happy ending and hopefully some happy tears. This book did not produce. And the reader was so overly effected.
I would not recommend this book.
