If you’re looking for a quick holiday read that has wholesome values, sweetness and of course charm, Dear Santa by Debbie Macomber delivers these aspects into the story. This book was enjoyable to listen to as I was able to get through the audiobook in no time.
I love that what used to be childhood nemesis turned into two adults who misunderstood each other and while doing so, ended up liking each other. I also love the message of forgiveness that’s woven throughout the book.
Overall, this was such a sweet and cute story that would be perfect to snuggle down with whenever you have a quiet moment leading up to the holidays.
Thank you Debbie Macomber for the gifted copy and PRHA Audio for the audiobook. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Lindy Carmichael isn't feeling particularly joyful when she returns home to Wenatchee, Washington, for Christmas. The man she thought was "the one" has cheated on her with her best friend, and she feels completely devoid of creativity in her graphic-design job. Not even carolers or Christmas cookies can cheer her up--but Lindy's mother, Ellen, remembers an old tradition that might lift her daughter's spirits.
Reading through a box of childhood letters to Santa and reminiscing about what she'd wished for as a young girl may be just the inspiration Lindy needs. With Ellen's encouragement, she decides to write a new letter to Santa, one that will encourage her to have faith and believe just as she'd done all those years ago. Little does Lindy know that this exercise in gratitude will cause her wishes to unfold before her in miraculous ways. And, thanks to some fateful twists of Christmas magic--especially an unexpected connection with a handsome former classmate--Lindy ultimately realizes that there is truly no place like home for the holidays.
In Dear Santa, Debbie Macomber celebrates the joys of Christmas blessings, old and new.
