Twelve Days of Christmas is this year's Christmas novel by Debbie Macomber. Julia Padden lives across the hall from grumpy Cain Maddox. Julia has been cheerful and polite, but Cain does not respond to her cheerfulness (besides asking if she is always so cheerful in the morning). Then he steals her newspaper, and Julia catches him at it. That is the last straw. Julia talks about her neighbor with her best friend, Cammie. Cammie suggests that she kill him with kindness. She also suggests that this would be a great thing to blog about. Julia is trying to get her dream job in social media. Harvestware (major software developer) has an opening. Julia applied and it is down to her and one other applicant. They both have to blog during the month of December and the person with the biggest following will get the position. It is twelve days until Christmas. Julia uses that as the title of her posts. Julia starts out by bringing Cain his newspaper and then buying him coffee. Slowly Julia starts to see a change in Cain. It turns out that Cain can be quite charming. To see how her experiment turns out, you will have to read Twelve Days of Christmas.





Twelve Days of Christmas was entertaining. I knew how the romance would play out (predictable), but it was a fun story. I found the characters engaging and I liked the humor in the story. Twelve Days of Christmas is easy to read and has a quick pace (it can be finished in under three hours). I thought the idea of killing someone with kindness was good idea and more people should follow the practice (we would definitely have a better world). The ending will leave you laughing. I give Twelve Days of Christmas 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). There is an excerpt from Dashing Through the Snow at the end of the books. I cannot wait for Debbie Macomber's next book.





I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
