My take:  When Julia Padden meets her across-the-hall neighbor Cain Maddox she’s shocked by his rudeness. It’s the Christmas season after all. The naturally bubbly and upbeat Julia is just not used to such treatment. He’s her polar opposite. Never one to back down from a challenge, and on the advice of her best friend, she decides to “kill him” with kindness.

Julia also has a project that is tied into a social media job interview that is down to between her and one other applicant. She must create a blog for a couple of weeks. The person who has the most hits and followers will get the job. So she decides to blog about her kindness project. This has far-reaching repercussions and some unexpected results.

Twelve Days of Christmas is quintessential Debbie Macomber. There’s a bit of conflict, romance, drama, humor and sweetness. I enjoyed it and think her fans will as well.

  1. Okay, my comment probably went to spam again. Yikes!

    I’m trying again, signed into my FB account.

    I love Macomber’s books, and hope to enjoy this one for the holiday season. I haven’t yet read any of her Christmas books. Thanks, Mary!


  2. Is it really getting to that time of year again? Not sure I’ll be doing my usual Christmas challenge this year but I still look forward to reading your seasonal posts.


    • Today is the pub date for this book. I think they should put a no earlier than Nov. 1st pub date requirement for Christmas books!!


  3. I love that – kill with kindness, sounds like the Scrooge like character was beaten over the head with it! A good Christmas spirited read.
