Rediscover Christmas on Blossom Street in this classic holiday romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
Katherine O’Connor adores her five-year-old twin nieces—and objects to her sister’s plans to dispense with Christmas. While Katherine spends her days at a cozy café, writing Christmas letters for other people, her sister is following the theories of child psychologist and author Wynn Jeffries, who is also, as it happens, Katherine’s neighbor. She is particularly horrified by his edict to “bury Santa under the sleigh,” and she’s out to prove that Wynn and his ideas are full of…snow. He’s not going to ruin her nieces’ Christmas! Too bad the guy’s so darned attractive… 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…

Sweet holiday romance
This wasn't my favorite of the Debbie Macomber holiday romances I've read so far this season. I didn't like KO's focus on her weight, and how she gained 2 pounds and it was the end of the world. But I thought the story as a whole was cute, I just wanted it to be a bit longer. I wanted more conversation about the hero and heroine's differences.
