Can Jayne convince Santa to take her off the naughty list?
Santa’s nephews have come to Crystal Falls to run a cookie business. If they fail, they’ll have to go back to the North Pole and fill their uncle’s black boots when he retires. But sick of toys, elves, and the North Pole’s influence, that’s the last thing Landon and Aaron want. They’re looking for love.
Jayne isn’t much for sentimental family holidays and she certainly doesn’t believe in magic. Working in the Crystal Falls post office, she is mystified when she handles mail bearing a North Pole postal mark.
When Landon and Jayne meet, their attraction for each other is undeniable, but will the truth about Landon’s life make Jayne’s a believer, or will it be his love that finally melts her heart?
This was a wonderful Christmas story! Lots of adults don't feel the magic of Christmas anymore and Jayne is no exception. Add to the fact that she has a man who claims to be Santa's nephew and she begins to think he's off his rocker or perhaps she is because she's starting to believe him! I thought the story was very original, the worldbuilding was believable and the dialogue top notch. This is the perfect story to read in a comfy chair with a cup of hot chocolate and plate of warm cookies.
