My Thoughts

Dear Santa,

I have been very good this year, so I am certain that I am on the nice list! All I want for Christmas is more time in every day to read all the fabulous books in the world! I also wouldn’t mind a winning lottery ticket! Hope Mrs. Klos is being good to you, I will have the cookies waiting!

Thanks so much,


PS: give Rudolph a carrot from me!🛷

This was a fun sweet holiday story reminiscent of the movie “You’ve Got Mail“… really the perfect book to put you in the festive mood… filled with letters to Santa, holiday cheer, hope, family, and love….

Angela loves running her family’s charming Christmas store… for three generations this lovely store has been a staple in the town with its unique location in the lighthouse… but now Angela‘s livelihood has been threatened with the opening of the big box Christmas store “Christmas Galore“… determined to save her shop she has proclaimed war on all things Christmas Galore! After sending a letter to Santa with the encouragement of her niece, Angela begins a correspondence with whoever is on the other end of this app…. i’m sure you do not need to be a master detective to figure out who she is corresponding with!

This was a sweet, slow burning, enemies to lovers, Love story… Angela was such a likable character I absolutely loved her love for Christmas! It took me a while longer to warm up to Jeff the owner of Christmas Galore, but after a while he won me over…. this is just one of those fun feel good stories that puts a smile on your face and a festive feeling in your heart!

If you love a good Christmas story filled with holiday spirit this is a definite must!

About the Book

From USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle, Dear Santa is a heartwarming Christmas story about finding your passion for life and love.

Angela Carson wants nothing more than to be the third-generation to run her family’s holiday store, Heart of Christmas, successfully. They’ve weathered over sixty tourist seasons, major hurricanes, and urban sprawl, in their old decommissioned lighthouse. But the national chain that set up shop in their small North Carolina town of Pleasant Sands may be more than Heart of Christmas can survive.

Encouraged by her niece to ask Santa for help, Angela gives in and lets the words fly in a way that, if Santa were real, would no doubt land her on the naughty list. What’s the harm when it’s just a computer-generated response?

Geoff Paisley has been at his mother’s side running the mega-chain Christmas Galore for the last ten years. When his mother falls ill, Geoff promises to answer the town’s Dear Santa letters in her stead. Soon he realizes the woman he’s been corresponding with on Dear Santa is Angela. How could the woman that grates his every last nerve in person have intrigued him so deeply through those letters?

When Geoff reveals that he’s her Dear Santa, will Angela be able to set aside their very public feud to embrace the magic of the holiday and possibly find true love? 


Have a Holly Jolly day! Berit☀️✨
