Twelve Days of Christmas, by Debbie Macomber    

Julia Padden is friendly and bubbly.  She likes almost everyone except for her standoffish neighbor Cain Maddox.  She has tried to be nice on several occasions but he is rude in return every time.  After she catches him stealing her newspaper from the lobby of their apartment building, she decides to kill him with kindness and tracks her progress by starting an online blog called The Twelve Days of Christmas. Julia brings him homemade Christmas treats and the grinch won't accept them. Her blog becomes and online sensation.  Little by little she chips away at his gruff facade to find a caring man underneath. As they start to fall for each other, should she be honest with him about her chronicling their relationship to the rest of the world so they have a chance at love?

Publisher's Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Continuing in a festive annual tradition, Debbie Macomber returns with a new original holiday novel full of romance and cheer—and the magical prospect of finding love in the most unexpected places.
 
Friendly and bubbly, Julia Padden likes nearly everyone, but her standoffish neighbor, Cain Maddox, presents a particular challenge. No matter how hard she’s tried to be nice, Cain rudely rebuffs her at every turn, preferring to keep to himself. But when Julia catches Cain stealing her newspaper from the lobby of their apartment building, that’s the last straw. She’s going to break through Cain’s Scrooge-like exterior the only way she knows how: by killing him with kindness.
 
To track her progress, Julia starts a blog called The Twelve Days of Christmas. Her first attempts to humanize Cain are far from successful. Julia brings him homemade Christmas treats and the disagreeable grinch won’t even accept them. Meanwhile, Julie’s blog becomes an online sensation, as an astonishing number of people start following her adventures. Julia continues to find ways to express kindness and, little by little, chips away at Cain’s gruff façade to reveal the caring man underneath. Unbelievably, Julia feels herself falling for Cain—and she suspects that he may be falling for her as well. But as the popularity of her blog continues to grow, Julia must decide if telling Cain the truth about having chronicled their relationship to the rest of the world is worth risking their chance at love.

    Twelve Days of Christmas is this years Christmas novel by Debbie Macomber. Julia Padden lives across the hall from grumpy Cain Maddox. Julia has been cheerful and polite, but Cain does not respond to her cheerfulness (besides asking if she is always so cheerful in the morning). Then he steals her newspaper, and Julia catches him at it. That is the last straw. Julia talks about her neighbor with her best friend, Cammie. Cammie suggests that she kill him with kindness. She also suggests that this would be a great thing to blog about. Julia is trying to get her dream job in social media. Harvestware (major software developer) has an opening. Julia applied and it is down to her and one other applicant. They both have to blog during the month of December and the person with the biggest following will get the position. It is twelve days until Christmas. Julia uses that as the title of her posts. Julia starts out by bringing Cain his newspaper and then buying him coffee. Slowly Julia starts to see a change in Cain. It turns out that Cain can be quite charming. To see how her experiment turns out, you will have to read Twelve Days of Christmas.

    Twelve Days of Christmas was entertaining. I knew how the romance would play out (predictable), but it was a fun story. I found the characters engaging and I liked the humor in the story. Twelve Days of Christmas is easy to read and has a quick pace (it can be finished in under three hours). I thought the idea of killing someone with kindness was good idea and more people should follow the practice (we would definitely have a better world). The ending will leave you laughing. I give Twelve Days of Christmas 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). There is an excerpt from Dashing Through the Snow at the end of the books. I cannot wait for Debbie Macombers next book.

    I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.

    Debbie Macomber hits it out of the park with this one. One of my favorite books of all her Christmas books.

    Tis the Christmas season and Julia, who has a very bubbly outgoing personality, finds that her neighbor, who lives across the hall, has, on occasion, been taking her newspaper! When she confronts him, he is very gruff and surly towards her. This really irritates her and she sets out to see if treating him with kindness during this holiday season will produce a change in his attitude.

    She does many things to try to get his positive attention, but seemingly without success.

    Julia is trying to get a social media job and the final step to the process is to write a blog. The selection will be made between her and another person. The person getting the most followers to their blog, will get the job. She hasnt been very successful, until her best friend, upon learning of the problems with the neighbor, suggests that Julia try an experiment of killing Cain with kindness for 12 days prior to Christmas. As Julia documents the various things she has done and the outcome, she gains more followers everyday. Her blog becomes a national social media sensation, but will her actions improve the relationship with her neighbor. Will she find that it is a help, not only to him, but to herself as well?

    This was a very enjoyable, holiday read and one I couldnt put down until I had finished it.

    I could easily visualize this book becoming a holiday TV special!

    I highly recommend this book .

    I received a copy of this book from Random House Ballantine in exchange for my unbiased review.
