Format: Paperback
This book contains two charming Christmas stories. In very small print on the bottom left hand corner, it states, "A seasonal classic first published as 'When Christmas Comes'". On an inside note from Debbie Macomber she tells that this will be a TV movie this year. It was first published in 2004 and the second story `The Forgetful Bride' was published in 1991. So at least the information is given, but a bit hard to see if you are ordering online.

The first, `Trading Christmas' does seem to be the tried and used plotline of trading houses and falling in; love; and a Christmas grouch but it is really more than that.
Actually it is a first rate quirky, twisting storyline where a widow tries to surprise her daughter by trading her house in Washington state for one in Boston so they can be together at Christmas, the daughter is not there, and then the widow's friend decides to show up in Washington state to surprise her friend and she in turn is surprised by a Christmas grouch occupying her friend's house.
Despite the fact we have a history professor thinking he is traveling to the prison town of
Leavenworth Kansas and winding up in an ultra-Christmas spirited Leavenworth, Washington - we can still see past all the twists of fate with a steady smile on our face as we read.

The second story, `The Forgetful Bride' deals with two childhood acquaintances that run into each other later in life. The lady desires her boss, but what does the boss want and how can everyone find happiness. Again we have an interlacing plotline of love, infatuation and the question...how will true love win out?

There is humor and irony and surprising romances in both of these Christmas repeats.

I am not generally a fan of genre romances but this one had me laughing all the way through. Yes, the story arc is predictable as in all genre romances but it is the details that amused me. Thank heavens I have never had to meet a future mother in law with a live lobster clinging to my trousers. A feel good, easy read for the Christmas season.
