A bad Santa is turning believers faster than melting snow. Can the mystery be solved in time for Christmas? Claudia I’ve dreamed of this day for years, and now it’s reality. I’ve been called up for the Big Show. Official Pole phone and email, Naughty-or-Nice login, and upgraded I.D. with my new job title—Comet. In three weeks, I’ll be part of the team flying Santa around the world. In an instant my life goes from peaceful, if boring, to a blizzard of last-minute flight preparations, route planning, and anxiety-triggering stress. The moment I meet my P.A., Jillian, her beautiful smile and sparkling blue eyes are an oasis of calm. But I’ve barely got enough time to wonder if her plump lips taste as sugarplum sweet as they look. Disturbing news has popped up on Santa’s radar. Someone is turning Santa’s most fervent believers into non-believers overnight. If we can’t find and stop this hacker, there won’t be enough reindeer cutout cookies and hot chocolate in the world to restore balance to Santa’s Naughty-or-Nice list in time for Christmas Eve. Note to reader: What sweet Christmas romance would be complete without reindeer, The Nutcracker, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, and New York pizza?
This lgbtq novel is not full length but rather a sweet novella. It is full of magic and elves. And as it is set at the North Pole we also have reindeer shifters and blue snowmen. But the storyline is all about the grinch who wanted to steal children’s belief in Father Christmas and the magic of the presents that came from their letters and wishes as told to the department store (etc) stand-ins.
It was sweet but…the main issue with all novellas is that they are too short to really develop the characters and the storyline. Thus, it was all too easy to solve the mystery and get things organised at the very end..
