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 would the holidays be without a Christmas story from Debbie Macomber?

This book on Kindle contains recipes and then another book, "Can This Be Christmas?" which was a delightful surprise. It is about individuals on a train on their way home for Christmas . They had been diverted from their plane schedules because of a huge snowstorm in Maine on their way to Boston to make connections. Each is going to a different location; each has a story. Their stories and how they handle the breakdown of the tracks and spend the night in a train station makes the interesting tale. It is fascinating in both these books to discover how people grow in maturity from the disappointments of life. A very good read.
"The Perfect Christmas" presents two stories in one book. The first story is named like the book. Cassie Beaumont feels that she's destined for spinsterhood. By recommendation of her best friend who is also her work companion, she visits a male matchmaker who has the prerogative of deciding if he will take her on as a client or not! What follows would honestly make an amusing holiday movie that I would watch. At the end there are some free Christmas recipes included. I had been hoping that the recipes would be for the dishes that Cassie cooked for a Christmas dinner but those are probably available in the holiday recipe book by the author which is also advertised at the end.
"Can This Be Christmas" is an absolutely beautiful drama that embodies what the Christmas spirit should be. I recommend this book to everyone who … just to everyone!

First Thought when Finished: The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber was a quick, sweet, and fun Christmas read.
Story Thoughts: The Perfect Christmas was a sweet Christmas romance! The story was short and sweet but made for a great afternoon read with a hot cup of tea. I love matchmaker storylines so that made me smile. My only complaint was the end was much to quick for me. However, the rest of the story was delightful and fun! Perfect for the season.
Narrated by Tavia Gilbert / LENGTH 4 hrs and 13 mins
Tavia is one of my favorite narrators and she did an excellent job with The Perfect Christmas. Her pacing, emotion, and delivery were spot on and I think did the characters justice.
Final Thoughts: The Perfect Christmas made for a great holiday read.
I laughed so hard as Cassie starts to turn the tables on Simon, her matchmaker. But it doesn't stop there.
