I haven't read Debbie Macomber in a long time and this was quite an enjoyable holiday read. Julia meets her surly neighbor Cain and devises a plan to kill him with kindness AND blog about it. She slowly begins to chisel away at this hard exterior when he finds out about the blog and goes ballistic. Will a little holiday magic be enough to save their budding relationship? As a true Pollyanna I have hope in the power of kindness. May we all channel a little Julia this holiday season.
