Jingle All the Way by Debbie Macomber ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

"Everly Lancaster was ready to explode. Her assistant, Annette, the very one Jack Campbell, her business partner and CEO, had highly recommended she hire, who also happened to be his niece, had made yet another crucial mistake. One in a long list of costly errors. This time, however, this Gen Z, spoiled, irresponsible, entitled young woman had gone too far." (p. 3)

I love Debbie Macomber's Christmas books. Of all the books I've read by her, they are my favorites. Jingle All the Way, this year's entry, is the perfect, fluffy Christmas book.

Everly is a young, successful, and extremely stressed corporate woman. After her assistant's latest mistake she tells her business partner she is firing Annette. Hoping to keep the peace at work and at home, Jack suggests Everly the entire month of December off and has Annette book her a luxury cruise. Unfortunately, Annette wants revenge and books her two weeks on an Amazon River adventure cruise instead. Everly is unprepared for more than just the rainforest adventures.

Jingle All the Way is a total fluffy story that reminded me of the first Macomber Christmas book I read - Dashing through the Snow. It is exactly the kind of story I love for Christmas reading. It had the added bonus that I would love to go on the adventure cruise Everly goes on, even if I didn't get to fall in love with the resident naturalist. 

The story is pretty predictable but I enjoyed the characters greatly. It is also a quick read - I read half the book on the first evening. I was torn between rushing through it and trying to take my time to enjoy it for as long as possible. So it will be a great book to turn to during the craziness of the holiday season to give yourself a little break without the worry of not having time to finish it.
