Cheerful Julia can't stand her new grumpy neighbor, Cain. The harder she tries to engage him, the more standoffish he is. And when he steals her newspaper, well, that's the last straw. She decides to kill him......with kindness.
It is her best friend's idea. Julia is also trying to get her dream job in social media. She and one other person must start a blog. The person who gets the most hits on her page gets the job. Julia decides to blog The Twelve Days of Christmas, her daily experiences trying to force Cain to be friendly in time for Christmas.
Yes, we all know where this is going. But that's what these stories are for, right? It's cute and romantic. Heartwarming. Inspiring. Sweet. The road to romance isn't smooth. There are misunderstandings and catastrophes. And, well, of course, it is a bit over-the-top.
The narrator of the audiobook, Suzanne Elise Freeman, really added to the sappiness of the story. I found her to be a bit too dramatic, for a story that was already filled with drama.
However, this is exactly the Christmas story I wanted. It is also very short and quick. So, if you are in the mood for some sappy, heartwarming love story, try out Twelve Days of Christmas.
