Twelve Days of Christmas: A Christmas Novel
Debbie Macomber’s Twelve Days of Christmas is as saccharine-sweet as the peppermint mochas the heroine, Julia, drinks by the gallon.
When Julia notices her curmudgeonly neighbor, Cain, stealing her newspaper, she gets mad. But her friend Cammie encourages Julia to kill Cain with kindness. While neighborly conflict with Cain is brewing, Julia is trying to get a social media job in order to escape her long, grueling hours at Macy’s. As part of the strangest interview process ever, Julia must start a blog, and the candidate who has the most blog followers will be awarded the job. Julia decides to write her blog about her daily conflicts with Cain. Eventually the two become friends and more.
Macomber is known for her sweet, innocent love stories, and Twelve Days of Christmas won’t disappoint. For a while I worried over details and wondered why Julia, a woman who was so web-savvy as to start a blog and gain a following in the tens of thousands over the course of a few days, would still get the newspaper. But the love story was just so sweet and Julia was so utterly likable that I suspended my disbelief. Read Twelve Days of Christmas if only to remind yourself to be kind to others during the holiday season.
