When Julia Padden comes into contact with her surly neighbour Cain Maddox, she cannot understand what his problem is, and when she catches him taking her newspaper, she is determined to teach him a lesson. Working full-time, playing piano for the choir, and volunteering with kids, means that Julia is always busy, but in order to get the job of her dreams, she must also start a blog for the month of December that will attract as many followers as possible. And that is when a unique idea occurs. What if she killed her grumpy neighbour with kindness for the next twelve days of Christmas, and document it on the blog? What harm could it cause? But as Julia soon learns, looks can be deceptive, and sometimes you find what you need when you least expect it.
Cain Maddox has accepted his solitary existence. Having been abandoned as a child and later learned first hand that love only hurts, he is determined to keep his walls firmly in place. But when his super-chirpy, always happy, neighbour Julia refuses to take a hint and leave him alone, he finds himself softening towards her. But as secrets start to emerge can he really trust her?
TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS by Debbie Macomber is a beautifully written, festive tale of love, understanding and finding what you need. Both of the main characters have had bad experiences with relationships, but they hide it in different ways - Cain puts on a sharp, abrupt facade, while Julia hides behind a sunny, breezy attitude. As the Christmas spirit spreads throughout the novel, their real hopes, dreams, and fears come alive and we hope that they can find their way through their insecurities to find love. With hilarious moments throughout, and a lot of festive goodness, TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS by Debbie Macomber is the perfect Christmas read to get you into the holiday mood. A truly delightful, happy read!
