The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber

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 other options are there? Well…she could hire a professional matchmaker. Simon Dodson has quite a reputation, but he's very choosy about the clients he takes on—and very expensive. Cassie considers him 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 this paragon. Three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell-ringer, dressing up as Santa's elf at a mall and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (most of whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it all—and then she's finally ready to meet her match.

But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise!

I read this book in one night. I was waiting for the inevitable to happen, and just couldn't put it down. Feel good story.

I absolutely adored this book...and had a feeling about it from the get-go. There are few surprises, and moments where tasks the character had to complete made you think "what the crap?!" and other moments where you feel like crying (like when she talks about her dad and grandpa). When I started reading the book, I could not put it down, and when I finished reading, I had to say "awwww!" So if you love a heartwarming, romantic story with humor, you would like this book.

Because of this book I have fell in love with this author. This book is an absolute a must read. After the first page you can't put the book down. Get nice and cozy under your covers and plan to stay to the very end.

Cassie Beaumont receives a Christmas card that at first devastates her and then becomes her inspiration! The card is a photo of a friend with a perfect husband and perfect child, a happy marital celebration of good luck and blessings. Cassie at thirty-three years of age knows her biological clock is ticking very close to the time when such perfection is totally beyond her reach. Anticipating sending a holiday card to her friends which again reveals her unmarried, lonely status is totally unsatisfactory, so Cassie does something totally outrageous and unthinkable to most women! She visits a professional matchmaker who for $30,000 guarantees her that perfect spouse and hopefully a future with a perfect child she envisions constantly. Only Simon Dodson, a psychologist who is supposedly very, very good at his job, is one of the most difficult men she has ever met. He's terse, snide and almost dictatorial in his comments. It's almost as if he has no heart! Cassie and Simon duke it out with questions and almost no answers on his part in order for her to attain her now possibly attainable goal. He sets her three tasks which she must complete before Christmas. Those jobs or challenges present a wild blend of hilarity, chaos and heart-stirring tender moments that are sure to delight any thinking and feeling reader. While this is going on, her best friend seems to have struck up a secret relationship which she won't divulge to Cassie until the time is right. As Christmas Day is rapidly approaching, Cassie has a stunning realization which changes everything and yet initially changes nothing. Debbie Macomber writes truly breathtaking, interesting and heart-warming stories that are sheer delight to relish. A Perfect Christmas will not disappoint her fans and will certainly add more to the list who love this author who knows how to pen a true celebration of real, romantic love! Wonderful!

This was the first book I have read by Debbie MaComber but it will not be the last. She included humor, romance, suspense, everything you need in a good book you can't help but enjoy this book.

Bought this title because I had enjoyed her "Call Me Mrs. Mircle", but this was a clear disappointment. Boring story and uninteresting additional materials to make the book larger.

Story ok but very short. Lots of recipes etc. in the last 90+ pages.

Enjoyable Christmas story but extremely cheesy and predictable. If you want to have an active and engaged mind while you read this book is not for you. I'm glad it was only $1

The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber Cathy has decided to use a professsional matchmaker as she's had no luck on her own or her girlfriends blind dates. Simon is the professional psychologist that has a dating service as well. He's told her she needs to do a few tasks first then she will meet Mr. Right-John. She's a bell ringer around the Christmas holidays near a store and finds some good people out there and some not so good people that left money for the pot. Her next task is to fly in to meet Santa from up above the ceiling then help him with picture taking sessions. Next task is to put on a dinner for her neighbors. These are very trying tasks and things don't go just right but Simon is there to pick up the pieces.

This was a cute story and I loved the characters. But, it was predictable and too short. I normally love her books but this one left me wanting more for the money.
