    This sweet story is so typical of work related romance today. The author has combined so many elements that are both endearing and humorous, it is easy to get caught up in the story.The last thing Merry needs is a romance, and yet sometimes things happen for a reason. Merry develops a beautiful friendship over chat with a stranger but when it comes to meeting face to face, she hesitates. It is too good to be true? Is this something she really nee...

    Yes, it's a Christmas book. Yes, I know it's not Christmas yet but I've had this book waiting for me for a while now. It doesn't release until October but the synopsis just kept calling to me and I couldn't wait any longer. And life is going to be crazy the first of October to read and write the review then, so I decided to grab it now and enjoy. And I did! It was fabulous! I've read the last several Christmas books that Debbie Macomber has writt...

    I feel like I’ve heard this story before and it was called You’ve Got Mail😬 It is very reminiscent of the movie - from meeting online, to one of them finding out the other is the enemy - even there being daisies involved. However, it is a very sweet Christmas love story. There were some very lovable characters - Patrick, Merry’s brother with Down’s syndrome was a sweetheart and stole the show for me. This is my first read by Debbie Mac...

    Wow! I am really,really, really liking Debbie Macomber! This book is one of her special Christmas stories. I couldn't help but feel myself smiling all the way through it. This was a perfect day for a book like this. Cold and dreary outside, warm and bright inside. This book was a quick read. I read it all the way through in 2 hours!!Sweet, but not overly so, with some very funny bits.

    3.5 StarsReally cute, and it had the You've Got Mail vibe, which is one of my all-time favorite movies! Em Eldridge did a fantastic job narrating.
  • katwiththehat
    This was a cute, sweet Christmas story that was perfect for a nice cold day where you're drinking a warm drink or putting out decorations. It was short, a little longer than novella length, but perfect for this sort of tale. Merry is caught up in her home life and trying to save up enough money to finish school. Jason Bright, her boss, is something of a curmudgeon, who seems to care only about work. Naturally, they meet through a dating website, ...

    I enjoyed reading this book. It was a very easy, nice read. I would recommend this book to anyone. It was also hard to put down.
  • Kiki
    Not only was there HUGE amount of emotional cheating, the hero was disgusting. He dismissed the heroine while she was talking or rather confessing because the “love of his life” showed up and she was stunning.This is his reaction to the OW: “Merry was only a few feet away from him now. The closer she got, the more enraptured he became. She was a vision; her beauty took his breath away. Merry was far and away more than he’d ever anticipate...

    Merry and Bright was a very sweet holiday love story by Debbie Macomber. The book pulled me right in, and I really liked the two main characters, Merry and Jason. I felt sorry for Jason, never having had much of anyone care for him before, and I was glad that Merry had a warm and loving family. Merry is a temporary employee at the company owned by Jason's uncle, and he is her boss. Merry inadvertently ruffles Jason's feathers a few times, making ...

    So flipping fluffy and cheerful and "Hallmark movie"-esque. It was so darling, exactly what I needed this time of year!!

    **ARC RECEIVED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW **3.5 stars This was a short and sweet Christmas story. I liked it but I found that it took me nearly all the book to warm up to the hero. Sweet and innocent heroine. Grumpy and lonely hero. A chance meeting online brings them together but will dishonesty tear them apart.- no cheating - no om/ow drama- there was one part that I thought he was a jerk when another woman was around but he said it wasn'...

    I am not sure why I chose this book to read (was it 3 am or something?) as I am not a romance novel fan but this turned out to be a rather sweet story about a girl just trying to make it in the world. With a mom with MS and a brother with Downs, there is no money for college so she takes a temp job at a large company. As a Christmas present, her mom and her brother sign her up on an on-line dating service. They don't use her picture but that of ...

    I don't read romances but the only books with Christmas themes tend to be romances or mysteries. Merry Smith has a one year long temp job (really? and she gets overtime?). She dislikes her boss Jayson Bright. Merry and Bright - get it? He's lonely and obnoxious. She lives at home to help her mother who has developed MS, help with her teenage brother who has Downs Syndrome, because he father travels a lot for business. This is a typical romance a...
