Christmas Letter by Debbie Macomber-Audio

Christmas Letters Christmas Letter by Debbie Macomber - audio

From Shelfari:
Celebrate Christmas on Blossom Street with a brand-new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling 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 -- 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 Take:

First and Formost  I really didn't like the narrator.  There was just something about her voice that didn't sit well with me.  I also thought she could have shown more emotion in parts but most of the book was read monotone.

I have only read one other book by Debbie Macomber (the first one in the series about the angels) and i wasn't that impressed with it so I never really sought out her books.  When I joined the Christmas Reading Challenge I decided to give this book a try.

I still will probably not actively seek out any of Macomber books but I thought that this book was exactly what I expected.  Light fluffly romance.   No real character develpment but there were several funny moments.  I did feel as if the ending was a bit rushed and I forsee quite a bit of trouble in the future for these people if they don't slow done and spend some time really getting to know each other but that's not what romances are about so for what it is it was a fair book.

I gave it 3 stars on  GoodReads and Shelfari.
