Blurb: Matthew Blick is almost thirty years old, and he hates the thought of another holiday alone. He has become a bit of a wet blanket when Christmas rolls around every year. So much so that even his five-year-old niece, Hannah, knows something needs to change. She asks the department store Santa to bring her uncle a man to love, and when Santa sees her uncle, he formulates a plan to set that possibility in motion.
Santa shows up at Matthew’s house and at first Matthew can’t place him, but then the memories of his first kiss flood his mind and he is shocked to find that Santa is the man he has carried a torch for since high school. Will this twist of fate help Matthew change his view on the holidays? Only a kiss can tell.
Review: What does a child normally ask for when placed on Santa’s lap, well Matthew was wondering this answer also. Let’s just say he will definitely be up all night long. You just have to read this story for the full crazy details. However let’s just say I wished I had gotten this gift instead. A gift from the past comes forward.
This was a very cute little story that was a lot of fun to read. It was not to depressing but let’s just say that Matthew’s idea of Christmas might be changed forever.
I enjoyed this quick little read.
