This is a fun story!
The book is a novella, and is 156 pages. It’s a quick read and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The pace is consistent and you don’t get bored. Since it is a novella there is a lot that is ‘skipped over” you could say. Honestly, this really could have been longer with the gaps filled in, ending up a longer book and still have been a good, fun read.
Carol is such an excited young lady who absolutely loves Christmas; as well she should being Santa’s daughter. Her happiness is contagious. She easily fits in with the family, and you can just feel her presence through the words on the page. I sure wish I had someone like this girl, to whirlwind into my life!
So many people see Christmas time as a time of sadness. Depression and anger sets in. The author nailed Ben’s Christmas anxiety right on the head. I, myself, am a Bah Humbugger so I totally empathize with the character.
Carol is sent in to change’s Ben’s impression of the holiday season in only a couple days. Although quite unrealistic, she works her charms and and almost gets the job done. But you know in a story like this, everyone lives happily every after. I just won’t tell you how that happens. But let’s just say elves might be involved. 😉
I honestly cannot wait to read more in the series. It’s such a fun, light-hearted story. It’s a good break from the more serious books I usually read.
