Miracles don’t just happen on 34th Street. They can happen right in your living room—if you’re willing to believe…
What grown woman claims to have seen Santa Claus? Mandy Reese, for one—on a very special Christmas Eve when she was eight years old. These days, Mandy works at a year-round Christmas store in Tall Pine, California, where customers love to hear about her childhood encounter with Saint Nick. But when Jake Wyndham arrives in town—charming, gorgeous, extremely practical—Mandy faces a dilemma. Deny what she saw, or let Jake think she’s sugarplum crazy?
Jake scouts hotel locations all over the country, but he’s never met anyone quite like Mandy before. Her warmth and sparkle are irresistible, but…meeting Santa? Really? Jake’s no Scrooge but he’s definitely skeptical. Then again, there are all kinds of things Jake never experienced until he came to Tall Pine. Like autumn snow. Mind blowing kisses. And the magic of falling head-over-heels, madly in love…

My Thoughts:
This was such a cute book about believing in Christmas Magic and the spirit of Santa Clause. When Mandy was 8, she saw Santa Clause in her living room and all her life she has always had to deal with the people who thought she was crazy. When Jake comes to town in hopes of opening up a chain hotel, him and Mandy click. I really loved these two. I'm such a sucker for a Christmas love story. If you need a little holiday cheer pick-me-up, look no further than this sweet magical read. 

Side note: Sorry y'all, I had a family thing and I didn't get a Christmas review up on Sunday or Monday :(
