Description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Christmas is the season of the heart, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber is here to warm yours with a delightful holiday novel of first impressions and second chances.

Merry Knight is pretty busy these days. She’s taking care of her family, baking cookies, decorating for the holidays, and hoping to stay out of the crosshairs of her stressed and by-the-book boss at the consulting firm where she temps. Her own social life is the last thing she has in mind, much less a man. Without her knowledge, Merry’s well-meaning mom and brother create an online dating profile for her—minus her photo—and the matches start rolling in. Initially, Merry is incredulous, but she reluctantly decides to give it a whirl.

Soon Merry finds herself chatting with a charming stranger, a man with similar interests and an unmistakably kind soul. Their online exchanges become the brightest part of her day. But meeting face-to-face is altogether different, and her special friend is the last person Merry expects—or desires. Still, sometimes hearts can see what our eyes cannot. In this satisfying seasonal tale, unanticipated love is only a click away.

My Thoughts:

Merry Knight has a busy schedule helping her family with their needs plus working at a firm where the boss is a stickler for all sorts of details.  She does her best to avoid him but that isn't always the case and it gets worse with her family when they sign her up for a dating site  There she meets a man and gets to know him and when she finally goes to meet him she's is shocked by who shows up.  Unable to deal with seeing the mystery man she takes off.

This was such a cute romance at Christmas time.  As we watch Merry and her boss Jay work around each other and get to know one another. Definitely a book you can read time and again especially at the holidays!
