"The Christmas Letter" is the first book in a new series by April Zyon called Davidson Center. And despite the fact it's a holiday short, it's a full and brilliant story that has huge things going for it.
The story starts with loss, and our hero Dante has to come home from military deployment to take over the care of his niece. He does so without complaint and with a whole lot of love.
Noelle is in charge of answering the letters that children send to Santa. When she comes across Molly's, she realizes she knows her. She decides to send her a hand written response.
After watching Dante jog, Noelle runs into him. Their chemistry is electric. But when Christmas comes around, Dante learns a lesson in what believing is all about.
This was such a wonderful story of loss, love, hot sex, and the meaning of family. Done so, so, right as April does so well! Can't wait to read the next book in the series!
Will a Christmas letter be enough to restore his faith in love?
Dante had been serving his country faithfully as one of the elite SEALs when he got word of his baby sister's death. To say he had been devastated would have been an understatement. He was taken out of commission, away from the only job he ever knew, to take care of the niece he only saw when he was on leave. He toyed with the idea of allowing them to put her with a foster family—for about two minutes.
Noelle Henry spat out form letters for children who wrote to Santa Claus each holiday season. When she read a letter written in crayon from a six-year-old named Molly Davidson she knew that she couldn’t simply send the child the standard letter, especially since she had known the child's late mother. Instead, Noelle wrote a personalized letter for the little girl, something that would likely get her fired. She never anticipated what would develop between her and Molly's new guardian, Dante Davidson.
