Why I Read It: It’s Debbie Macomber. And Christmas. Debbie writes wonderful Christmas Romances.
From the Back Cover: 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 -- at least, 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 Christmas is about the things you share . . .
My Thoughts: Debbie Macomber creates some of the best Christmas romances I’ve ever read. Watching her characters come together is often like watching magic and is a terrific holiday gift for the reader. I haven’t read any of the other Blossom Street books yet, but if their stories are anything like this one I know I’m in for at treat.
Katherine (known as K.O) is in her late 20’s and has just graduated from college with a PR degree. She works as a Medical Transcriptionist and also writes Christmas letters on the side in order to have steady income. Wynn is a psychologist who’s first published book is very popular. Unfortunately, K.O. doesn’t agree with Wynn on his theories of child rearing and they butt heads often.
I’d say this is between a Good and a Very Good read ~ I enjoyed it very much and it was a quick weekend read. I’m looking forward to reading more of the Blossom Street series.
