Why I Love Wednesday

Why I Love Wednesdays…Love Stories

Reflections of a Bookaholic

Mocha Girl Alexis from Reflections of a Bookaholic started a Wednesday Meme called Why I Love Wednesday.  What is a Meme you ask?  According to wikipedia…The term “Internet meme” refers to a catchphrase or concept that spreads rapidly from person to person via the Internet, largely through Internet-based email, blogs, forums, Imageboards, social networking sites and instant messaging.  Basically, a topic from the meme host (Alexis) is posted on participating blogs with blog authors answering it on their site (here).

The topic this Wednesday is…Love Stories

I haven’t read many love stories lately.  Mocha Girls Read December’s book of the month was a love story called “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’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!

What are your favorite love stories?  What love stories have you read lately?

  • I have read a few Debbi Macomber’s before, but I don’t believe I’ve read this book. Sounds like a good story. PS, I left a comment on the BJ interview post but it seems to have disappeared. Just an FYI.

    • I saw the comment. It’s under the Valentine’s Day post.

  • I really enjoy romance novels by Francis Ray. She has a great way of telling a love story. I hadn’t heard of the Perfect Christmas. But it sounds lovely.

  • Debbie Macomber has great homey love stories. I haven’t read this one though.
