Christmas Letters (Blossom Street #3.5) By: 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 five-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
Every time I started to get into this book the characters would bring up Wynn’s child rearing theories and I would get pulled out. They were so stupid and anyone who had done any kind of research or held a doctorate should know that, and the character supposedly had both. It took me out of the story completely.
The romance was sweet, what you expect with a Debbie Macomber, the characters were fine, though a bit unrealistic and honestly stupid. Christmas played a large part of the story so if you’re looking for a holiday romance this certainly fits the bill, just not sure if I would recommend it.
Side Note: This book is in a series but you do not have to read it in order
