By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Dec. 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Home for the Holidays is an omnibus of two Debbie Macomber novels.
The Forgetful Bride was first published in 1991 and tells the story of stockbroker, Cait Marshall, in love with her boss, Paul Jamison, since she started working for his investment firm. Paul seems not to notice her at all. When building contractor, Joe Rockwell, turns up to oversee the refurbishment of the offices, he looks a little familiar to Cait. Soon enough, Cait discovers who he is, and he manages to embarrass her in front of her colleagues by recalling that they were once married, omitting to add that this was when Cait was only eight, and in exchange for a kiss that Joe wanted to experience. Joe is an inveterate teaser, and keeps referring to their marriage, even as he courts her, until Cait finally realises what her heart is telling her. This is a fun romance, with plenty of laughs, some sad moments, a Christmas connection and a heart-warming ending. Debbie Macomber always manages to leave the reader feeling good.
When Christmas Comes was first published in 2004 and tells a story of trading homes at Christmas time. When Emily Springer learns her daughter Heather is not coming home from college in Boston to Leavenworth, Washington for Christmas, she pours out her tale of woe to her friend, Faith Kerrigan in California. Eventually, Emily decides to go to Boston to see Heather, and does a house-swap with Harvard academic and curmudgeon, Professor Charles Brewster. Meanwhile, Faith decides to surprise Emily by coming to Leavenworth to cheer her up. When Heather learns Emily is in Boston, she is not at all pleased, having planned to ride to Florida for the holiday on the back of her new friend, Elijah's Harley, leaving Emily on her own.

If you are a fan of Debbie Macomber then this is the perfect book for Christmas. It contains two stories both are excellent and perfect for by the fire with a mince pie and a glass of eggnog! A great book as a gift for Christmas aswell I think because the stories are short and can be finished before the twelve days of Christmas have finished. I particularly liked 'Christmas Letters' - It's the story of Katherine O'Connor (known as K.O.) and her Christmas letter writing for other people and also intertwines with her love for her twin nieces and sister, Zelda, but she clashes with Zelda after she follows the theories of child psychologist Wynn Jeffries. However, Wynn, ends up being her neighbour and gorgeous with it. Another neighbour and friend of Katherine's,LaVonne, sets up a blind date for Wynn and Katherine and the sparks fly. As this is a Christmas story all is well in the end. As the book says 'Two classic stories to warm your heart this Christmas' and the next I think.

HASH(0x8f21c060) out of 5 stars FUN CHRISTMAS STORIES!! 9 Dec. 2005
By Tracey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Well, I'm not sure what all the low reviews are for, because I thought this was a fun book. It's an easy to read lighthearted book to read on the these cold snowy days. Something to relax by the fire with and laugh without getting into something too serious and deep. I think they are both warm with lots of laughter and a nice romance, perfect for getting away from it all. We have enough serious in our lives and it's nice to unwind with any of Debbie Macombers books. If you want deep and thought provoking material, then read an Opera book.

When Emily answers the phone at Charles's condo in Boston, his mom, Bernice, sends Charles's brother, Ray, from New York to investigate. There's enough humour here for plenty of laugh-out-loud moments: it would make a great Christmas TV special! There are some loveable characters and a fun plot, and of course Macomber does what she always does best: feel good romance, with a Christmas theme.

HASH(0x8f21c33c) out of 5 stars Typical Macomber Christmas Fun 9 Sept. 2009
By Edie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Every year, Debbie Macomber writes the most heart-warming Christmas stories to help readers relax during the busy holiday season. Home for the Holidays provides two good stories that will warm the heart.

The Forgetful Bride is an updated version of a story she wrote in 1991. Cait and Joe were "married" when they were children so that 10-year-old Joe could kiss 8-year-old Caitlin. The bonus Caitlin got out of the quicky marriage was to see the inside of the boys-only clubhouse, providing her with bragging rights around their childhood circle.

Many years later, Cait and Joe unexpectedly meet again. Although Cait has her eyes on an adorable co-worker who doesn't seem to recognize her desire for him, Joe is instantly taken with his childhood "bride". As she loudly protests, Joe insists they are still married and teasingly wants his rights as her husband.

The tug-of-war that ensues will bring a grin to your face if not a chuckle. Enjoy this Christmas time fun battle of the sexes.

When Christmas Comes - This story is a hilarious mix-up that brings out the true meaning of Christmas, whether one wants it or not. Emily traded her Washington home for Charles' Boston condo. Emily's friend Faith unexpectedly decides to visit Emily in Washington, but finds Charles instead. In the meantime, Charles brother decides to visit him in Boston only to find Emily ensconced in the condo.

Throughout the confusion, mixed-messages, and mayhem loves begins to find it's way among these unlikely couples.

Both of these light-hearted stories are just what one needs, along with a cup of hot chocolate, to relax after a busy day of shopping and wrapping gifts. Relax and enjoy the fun.

HASH(0x8f21c4ec) out of 5 stars classic Christmas tales of love and happiness 15 Dec. 2012
By Ionia Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has two stories in it that are filled with the expected charm of any Debbie Macomber holiday book. They are, of course, filled with the usual amount of silliness and centered around events that would more than likely never happen in the real world. It is that, though, that makes them such a joy to read during the holidays. The idea that everything can go right for someone and they can find what they have been searching for their entire lives during the holiday season, is a sweet and romantic idea that Mrs. Macomber has revisited time and again. Although some of the elements of this book reminded me of her previous novels, I thought this book was a great, light holiday read, perfect for an evening by the fire. Sometimes, when you need an escape from holiday stress, a Debbie Macomber title is just the right medicine and this is no exception.
