The Perfect Christmas By: Debbie Macomber
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!
Didn’t like this one as much as the last. Cassie was too perfect. She was evidently a brilliant chemist, great cook, kind, thoughtful, just everything that makes a person perfect. The only thing she was lacking was a man to give her babies.
I thought the romance wrapped up way to quickly and wasn’t very believable. Simon was awkward and rude but of course brilliant; so naturally she fell in love with him.
Romance novels don’t have to be completely believable, but the romance should be the most realistic part. IMO
Oh well. I’ll probably read more from Debbie Macomber but I don’t see her becoming a favorite. I like the sweetness of her books but not sure about everything else in them.
