With her biological clock ticking and not a decent match in sight as the holidays near, Cassie Beaumont bites the bullet and consults professional matchmaker Simon Dodson. Surprised when the arch and highly selective Simon takes her on, Cassie agrees to accomplish a series of holiday-related tasks before she meets John, her perfect mate. The only problem is, in the meantime, she falls for the one man who's completely off limits.
Verdict: Sweet, funny, and steeped in Christmas cheer, this title helps two picky people find "perfection" and recognize it when they do. Pour the cocoa and enjoy! Macomber (92 Pacific Boulevard) lives in Port Orchard, WA.

For Cassie Beaumont, its meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at thirty-three, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothings worked. Not blind dates, not the Internet and certainly not leaving love to chance. Whats left? A professional matchmaker. Hes Simon Dodson, and hes very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and shes 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 Santas elf at a childrens party and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it alland shes 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?
