Review: Christmas Letters

Title: Christmas Letters
Author: Debbie Macomber
Publisher: Mira
Publication Date: October 1, 2006
Format: Audio
Genre: Romance
Source: Library
Series: Blossom Street #6

The overall story line of K.O. (Katherine O’Connor) is thin and you do not walk away from Blossom Street knowing anymore about the inhabitants than you did before you read this book.

Katherine works from her townhome as a part time transcriptionist while trying to find a new job; to supplement her income she writes Christmas letters for friends and new business contacts. When her sister Zelda (really, the names in this book) goes on and on about a new book that she has read that will change the lives of her daughters written by childless Dr. Wynn Jeffries called the “Free Child” method, Katherine knows that she has heard more than she can handle.

What a coincidence, but Dr. Jeffries just happens to live in Katherine’s building and when she confronts him on his hokum and bull they spend the evening together and the world is raining down sunshine and lollipops.

Oh, but that is too simple, there must be conflict and drama. That comes in the form of twin girls that Katherine will be watching for an evening and she invites the good doctor to tag along so he can spread his educated knowledge on the situation.

Yes, well, we all know how that is going to end.

Other than the fact that this is a series that I started years ago and that some books are better than others, I do not know why I keep picking them up. I am way too skeptical for superficial romances and happily ever after’s. But what is a girl to do?

If you have already started this series, than by all means continue. This thin edition is a quick read and hopefully will lead to a better book next time.
