Christmas, Cocoa and a Debbie Macomber Romance!

I love to start off my Christmas season by reading Debbie Macomber's annual Christmas romance novel.  I've done this for years and it just gets my holiday season up and running.   

This year, Christmas started a bit early as I was blessed to receive an advanced review copy of Merry and Bright ~ Debbie's 2017 Christmas novel. I grabbed my soda, some cookies and settled down under the air conditioning to enjoy an afternoon of Christmas romance delight.

Merry Knight is pretty busy these days. She’s taking care of her family, baking cookies, decorating for the holidays, and hoping to stay out of the crosshairs of her stressed and by-the-book boss at the consulting firm where she temps. Her own social life is the last thing she has in mind, much less a man. Without her knowledge, Merry’s well-meaning mom and brother create an online dating profile for her—minus her photo—and the matches start rolling in. Initially, Merry is incredulous, but she reluctantly decides to give it a whirl.

Soon Merry finds herself chatting with a charming stranger, a man with similar interests and an unmistakably kind soul. Their online exchanges become the brightest part of her day. But meeting face-to-face is altogether different, and her special friend is the last person Merry expects—or desires. Still, sometimes hearts can see what our eyes cannot. In this satisfying seasonal tale, unanticipated love is only a click away.

Merry and Bright is a mix of holiday cheer, romance and the humor Ms. Macomber is is so well known for!  This delightful tale had me smiling, laughing and cheering Merry on throughout the whole story.   

It was the best afternoon I have spent in a long while and I came away from it with a huge smile on my face and a warm, cozy feeling in my heart. A great way to enjoy  an afternoon!

If you love romance and Christmas,  

you will most definitely enjoy Merry and Bright!
