Description


Katherine O'Connor often spends her days at a cozy café 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 café, 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....

        September 4, 2006
        Katherine O'Connor, a Seattle medical transcriptionist, has a booming sideline business, writing other people's Christmas letters. A run-in with Dr. Wynn Jeffries, however,ruins her holiday cheer. Katherine's sister is a devotee of Jeffries's Free Child movement, advocating "no boundaries for kids," a technique that has turned Katherine's into terrors. Jeffries just happens to live in Katherine's building, and their debate over parenting technique turns predictably, if perplexingly, to lust. Sticky with sentimentality, Macomber's latest is a fine companion to a glass of eggnog, but don't expect sustenance.

        October 15, 2006
        Returning to her beloved Blossom Street, Macomber treats readers to a funny, touching tale that takes a bachelor child psychologist with free-thinking child-rearing ideas and an outspoken heroine with twin nieces who thinks his ideas are just plain nuts, sends them on a blind date they can't refuse, and lets the romanceand the inevitable fireworksbegin. A newly psychic neighbor adds a whimsical touch to this charmer that overflows with holiday warmth and puts a new twist on the classic Christmas letter. Best-selling author Macomber, a Quill Award winner, lives in Port Orchard, WA.
