Today I'm reviewing The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber.
Summary from GoodReads: WHAT WOULD MAKE YOUR CHRISTMAS PERFECT?
For Cassie Beaumont, it's meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at thirty-three, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothing's worked. Not blind dates, not the Internet and certainly not leaving love to chance.
What's left? A professional matchmaker. He's Simon Dodson, and he's very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she's astonished when he accepts her as a client.
Claiming he has her perfect mate in mind, Simon assigns her three tasks to complete before she meets him. Three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell ringer, dressing up as Santa's elf at a children's party and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it all --- and she's finally ready to meet her match.
But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise!
Review after the jump!
Review: At this point I feel like Debbie Macomber is just on auto-pilot with writing Christmas romances. I’m not saying she is a terrible writer, she has written some great stories! Trouble is, she has written so many that it is hard to discern which ones are the best. I have similar problems with the ever prolific James Patterson. Verdict: Instead of this so-so story, instead read the similar, if not holiday themed, romance novel Thursday’s Child by Sandra Brown.
