The second Christmas book, "That Holiday Feeling", is an anthology written with two of Debbie Macomber's favorite writers: Sherryl Woods and Robyn Carr. Debbie Macomber's story in the anthology is an oldie favorite of her previous book, "Silver Bells", in which she reunite those Manning men and Manning sisters for a mistletoe marriage, as a single dad finally musters the courage to say, "I do."
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’s left? A professional matchmaker. He’s Simon Dodson, and he’s very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon 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 him. Three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell ringer, dressing up as Santa’s elf at a children’s party and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it all—and she’s finally ready to meet her match. But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise!
