Secret Santa

Secret Santa is a wonderfully uplifting Christmas anthology book. With each story, as the main character struggles through their own problems, the reader is sucked into the plot. And because of the holiday theme, all the stories have happy, hopeful, and sometimes emotional conclusions. Fern Michael’s “Mister Christmas” is cute and dynamic. Marie Bostwick’s “Yellow rose of Christmas” is a charming tale of woman’s first experience at love and all of its ins-and-outs. Laura Levine’s “Nightmare on Elf street was hilarious—I found myself belly laughing more than once. And Cindy Myer’s “Room at the Inn” is a sweet story about the meaning of Christmas; giving, sharing, and being with others. And about discovering new sides to yourself that you might not have known existed. All of them were a wonderful addition to my holidays.

This book is filled with many diverse and hope-filled stories of love, laughter, togetherness that will warm your heart for the holidays. Four very unique and talented voices create worlds where hope and happiness overcome all. Where the Christmas spirit fills the air and helps move the story along.
