Julia Padden is vying for a social media job at a software company—whoever generates the largest online following in the month of December gets the position. So far Julia's blog isn't stirring much interest, but when her infuriating Scrooge of a neighbor, Cain Maddox, steals her newspaper, she's inspired to write a new post about killing him with kindness for the next 12 days until Christmas. The piece takes off and Cain seems to be responding to her efforts. But what will happen to their burgeoning relationship when Cain finds out about the blog?
VERDICT Macomber's annual holiday novel (Dashing Through the Snow) is a sweet, feel-good romance that may even inspire you to kill someone with kindness during the hectic Christmas season. [See Prepub Alert, 4/18/16.]
