A heartwarming festive love story that reminds us that even in the darkest of times, hope is always just around the corner!
Sasha Hansley hates Christmas. As a child, it was her favourite time of year, but ever since the tragic death of her mother, it has completely lost its magic. But when she gets an unexpected phone call from her estranged father, she’s forced to dust off her snow boots.
He’s been running a Lapland style Christmas village in Norway and after suffering a heart attack, he is on strict doctor’s orders to slow down. Eager to reconnect with her dad, Sasha books the next flight out there. Only she’s never actually been on a plane before, let alone to the Arctic Circle.
Met at the runway by drop-dead-gorgeous Taavi Salvesen, they sleigh ride through the snow with the Northern Lights guiding their way.
When Sasha uncovers sacks of unopened Santa mail – letters that children and adults from all over the world write to Santa every year – she realises that she can send a little bit of magic out into the world by replying to some of them.
Jaimie Admans has once again given us a wonderful, magical Christmas read.
I did save this book to read in December and I am glad as it was such a special feeling reading in the shorter days and chilly weather.
The author, Jaimie Admans, has described the setting perfectly, detailing everything down to the sound of the silent snow falling so the reader feels instantly transported to the North Pole Forest.
The author creates each character with so much depth which strengthens the readers investment in the story. There were so many special little things sprinkled throughout this book that its hard to say too much without giving away any spoilers. There are cabins, reindeer, santa’s mail (did you write your Dear Santa letter?), post office, romance, Northern Lights, and oodles of #Christmas magic – this book has it all – and more!
I do love Jaimie Admans books and although I was granted an ebook from NetGalley to read and review I have also needed a paperback copy for my bookshelf as this is a book I intend to read in the run up to Christmases for many years.
Thank you to NetGalley and Jaimie Admans for the opportunity to read and review this novel.
