FRIDAY: Trading Christmas by Debbie Macomber

Emily decides to surprise her daughter for Christmas, so she swaps her home in Washington state with Charles in Boston. But her daughter has her own Christmas plans, leaving Emily stranded - alone - in Boston for Christmas.

Charles is not so lucky. He WANTS to be alone, but he's living in Christmas-central, surrounded by Emily's friends and Christmas cheer aplenty.

While it looks like Emily and Charles will have horrible holidays, love walks in.

The general premise is like the movie, The Holiday, which is one of my favorites for this time of year (any time of year, really). You may have caught the Hallmark Channel movie of this book during this Christmas season. This book is actually a re-release for Macomber. This story was previously published as When Christmas Comes. This version comes with a bonus story called The Forgetful Bride. I did skim through some of the middle, but I actually enjoyed the bonus story even more than the original.

3.5 out of 5 stars

Recommended for: Macomber's fans, readers looking for a fun Christmas romance

Cautions: some language
