Christmas Wishes by Debbie Macomber

I love to read Christmas stories during the holidays and I have become a big fan of secular author, Debbie Macomber. Her books are light hearted and fun... and often funny! Christmas Wishes contains two stories -- Christmas Letters and Rainy Day Kisses.
Christmas Letters is a hoot! Katherine O'Connor has a problem. Her sister and brother-in-law have fallen under the spell of child psychologist and author Wynn Jeffries, who has written a book called The Free Child. Dr. Jeffries theories have turned K.O.'s once sweet twin nieces into living terrors! K.O. wants to find Dr. Jeffries and give him a piece of her frazzled mind.
And then it happens, she spots him walking in her neighborhood and she follows him only to find him entering her building! Further investigation reveals that he actually lives in her building and has for some time. How on earth did she miss that?
What begins as a confrontation turns into a humorous adventure as K.O. allows Dr. Whren to see his theories in action.. up close and personal.. and along the way they both learn a lot about snap judgments and love.
In Rainy Day Kisses, we get to step back a few years in time and listen as MichelleDavidson tells how she brought her career minded aunt, Susannah Simmons, together with her now husband, Nate Townsend.
Susannah has no desire to be a wife or mom. She is climbing the corporate ladder two rungs at a time! Her five year goals are right on track and she is ready to start working on her ten year ones. But all that changes when she hastely agrees to babysit her infant niece, Michelle. Susannah has no idea what to do, but her new neighbor, Nate, does... and he is more than willing to help.
