My holiday book-binge continues with a delightful little novella from one of my favorite authors.
Kris Kringle is just an average guy living in the tiny town of North Pole, Maine where Christmas isn’t just a holiday—it’s a way of life. But not for Kris. He might be named after the big guy in red, but Kris is more Scrooge than Santa.
Until he wakes up from a night of partying with his friends to find himself in possession of a Santa suit, a toy bag and a puppy. Kris soon discovers that he’s been relegated to Santa’s naughty list and there’s only one way to get his name removed….put on the suit and spread some cheer.
Lucky for Kris every cloud has a silver snowflake and his quest to get off that list lands him in the arms of the woman he’s been lusting after for years.
It takes a little magic, but Kris is about to get everything he didn’t even know he wanted for Christmas.
Miss Riki’s Review:
This book is the perfect Christmas treat from one of my favorite authors. Everything about this darling novella screams holiday spirit, from the perfectly rendered small town of North Pole, Maine, to the characters with delightful holiday names (like Vixen, Cupid, Rudy, and Holly).
I fell in love with the title character, Kris Kringle. He begins the book damaged and heartbroken, but through the grace of some very mysterious happenings, he’s able to find not only some joy in the holiday season, but love as well. He’s charming and chivalrous, despite his broken past. (Very swoon-worthy!) I also really enjoyed Holly as the main love interest for Kris. I loved that she’s just your normal girl, with insecurities and family obligations. It was refreshing to read a romance novel that doesn’t feature a picture-perfect leading lady. Holly is loving and dedicated to her young daughter Joy, and I adored the family aspect that it brought to the book.
If you’re looking for a quick way to get into the holiday spirit, grab this book. It’s short and sweet with a romance that is sure to warm your heart.
