NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Christmas is the season of the heart, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber is here to warm yours with a delightful holiday novel of first impressions and second chances.

Merry Knight is pretty busy these days. She’s taking care of her family, baking cookies, decorating for the holidays, and hoping to stay out of the crosshairs of her stressed and by-the-book boss at the consulting firm where she temps. Her own social life is the last thing she has in mind, much less a man. Without her knowledge, Merry’s well-meaning mom and brother create an online dating profile for her—minus her photo—and the matches start rolling in. Initially, Merry is incredulous, but she reluctantly decides to give it a whirl.

Soon Merry finds herself chatting with a charming stranger, a man with similar interests and an unmistakably kind soul. Their online exchanges become the brightest part of her day. But meeting face-to-face is altogether different, and her special friend is the last person Merry expects—or desires. Still, sometimes hearts can see what our eyes cannot. In this satisfying seasonal tale, unanticipated love is only a click away.

Praise for Merry and Bright

Great narrator, doing her best with what would kill you if you turned it into a drinking game (details below)! She brought believe-ability to this fluffy, clean Christmas romance. I appreciated her clear diction, range, and warmth. Kudos, Em Eldrige! Now. The drinking game. I've also posted this over on goodreads. Do not, under any circumstances, take a drink every time - Merry feels love towards her family - Jason feels pressure because of The Project - Merry holds back what she actually wants to say, especially to her family - Jason has never experienced familial/parental love - Merry feels festive and sees the world in a rose-tinted way - Jason has never experienced Christmas beyond material things Do not do that. If you do, you will die. By the third chapter. Maybe before. And I can't be responsible for that. That said, this book was exactly what I needed it to be when it arrived in my life: a marshmallowy sweet sappy love story. Who cares if it reads like the first draft of a relatively competent NaNoWriMo novel? It doesn't need fabulous prose -- I'm here for the pining and the angst and the swoons! ^_^
