Merry And Bright
Received from Netgalley
Merry Knight is working a temp job at a consulting firm but she might as well be a full time employee with the hours she is working. To top it off she does not like her boss, Jayson Bright. She seems to get on his nerves as she is happy and trying to spread holiday cheer and he keeps shutting her down. MERRY AND BRIGHT introduces you to Merry’s parents and her special needs brother, Patrick. She loves her family very much and tries to do all she can for them, but her job now has mandatory over time and she feels as if she just doesn’t have enough time in the day. Jayson is a very handsome man but very serious and does everything by the book. Merry could never imagine being with a man like that.
Merry’s mom is worried that life is passing Merry by. One day her mother and brother sign her up on a dating website. She needs to have fun again and enjoy life. They want men to like her for her not her beauty so they put up a picture of the family dog on her profile. There she meets Jay and decides not to meet him right away. She likes getting to know him without the physical stuff getting in the way. When they do finally meet, well, let’s just say things don’t go as planned. MERRY AND BRIGHT will have you giggling out loud, at the same time holding your breath. The way Merry freaked out was totally expected and I’m sure I would have done the same thing.
I have never met a Debbie Macomber story that didn’t pull on my heart strings and MERRY AND BRIGHT did not disappoint. It is kind of predictable but I still loved every minute of it. It is a sweet story filled with family, emotions that will have you smiling and tearing up, second chances and no bad language or sex scenes. I look forward to Debbie Macomber’s holiday stories every year and as soon as I know they are coming I’m filled with excitement. Debbie has a way of pulling her readers right in and making them fall in love with all of her characters. I found myself cheering for Merry and hoping she would be able to teach Jayson what Christmas is all about.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND STAY SAFE! THANKS FOR READING!!
