The Perfect Christmas
Genre: Christmas Romance
Summary (from Goodreads): WHAT WOULD MAKE YOUR CHRISTMAS PERFECT?
For Cassie Beaumont, it's meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at thirty-three, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothing's worked. Not blind dates, not the Internet and certainly not leaving love to chance.
What's left? A professional matchmaker. He's Simon Dodson, and he's very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she's astonished when he accepts her as a client.
Claiming he has her perfect mate in mind, Simon assigns her three tasks to complete before she meets him. Three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell ringer, dressing up as Santa's elf at a children's party and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it all --- and she's finally ready to meet her match.
But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise!
Review: This was a cute little story about a woman looking for the perfect man at Christmas time. I knew exactly what was going to happen in this story just by reading the blurb, and I was right! Contrary to the book's description, there weren't any surprises in the book; but even worse, the main romance was completely inexplicable. I generally like Macomber's quick, light, fluffy little stories, but this one could have used more depth to bring it up to the level of her other quick, light, fluffy little books.
