Christmas Letters by Debbie Macomber

Christmas Letters by Debbie Macomber

In Debbie's 2006 Christmas offering, we find Katherine O'Connor writing Christmas letters in a cozy cafe. She writes for people who don't have the time and makes them sound more charming and dramatic. While in the cafe, she meets the reknowned Psychologist Wynn Jeffries, who is the author of The Free Child that touts that "parents bury Santa under the sleigh." K.O., as Katherine is called, has a sister Zelda who thinks Dr. Jeffries is wonderful and raises her two identical 5 year old daughters by his book. K.O. is adamantly against everything his book proposes, even though she's not read the book as yet.

K.O's good friend and neighbor, LaVonne, an older single woman with three male cats with human names, "sees" the future for K.O. and sets up a magnicent dinner date for the two of them. When K.O. writes LaVonne's Christmas letter to her college chums, she brings in the three elusive male cats as her suitors to make her letter sound more believable. When Wynn's hippie father "Moon Puppy" arrives for the holidays, K.O. turns the tables on LaVonne's psychic talents to bring the two together, which makes for some hilarious moments. When K.O. and Wynn babysit Zoe and Zara with the twin Yorkies Zero and Zorro, the two get a lot more then they bargain for and K.O. tries to show Wynn how wrong his child-rearing tactics are. This is such a good Christmas book and if you enjoy romantic comedies, this is for you. This is great for cuddling up in a big chair by the fire.
