A special holiday wish list brings about hope, love, and second chances in this nostalgic novel from the queen of Christmas stories, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
Lindy Carmichael isn't feeling particularly joyful when she returns home to Wenatchee, Washington, for Christmas. The man she thought was "the one" has cheated on her with her best friend, and she feels completely devoid of creativity in her graphic-design job. Not even carolers or Christmas cookies can cheer her up--but Lindy's mother, Ellen, remembers an old tradition that might lift her daughter's spirits.
Reading through a box of childhood letters to Santa and reminiscing about what she'd wished for as a young girl may be just the inspiration Lindy needs. With Ellen's encouragement, she decides to write a new letter to Santa, one that will encourage her to have faith and believe just as she'd done all those years ago. Little does Lindy know that this exercise in gratitude will cause her wishes to unfold before her in miraculous ways. And, thanks to some fateful twists of Christmas magic--especially an unexpected connection with a handsome former classmate--Lindy ultimately realizes that there is truly no place like home for the holidays.
In Dear Santa, Debbie Macomber celebrates the joys of Christmas blessings, old and new.

Here is what I thought

I always have to read the Christmas books from this author as they are always just light-hearted fluffy fun.

Lindy is at a crossroads in her life and not feeling very joyful. The one man she thought was ‘the one’ cheated on her with her best friend. Her job isn’t treating her right either and it seems she has to work harder than others to get ahead. Her mother wants her to come home for Christmas and she has decided to go.

At her mothers as she is taking about things her mom reminds her about the letters she had written to Santa and how she has kept them. She tells her to read them as she never asked for things regular kids would ask for and it seemed that is an unusual want her wishes always happened. Then her mom tells her to write a new letter to Santa.

Lindy thought that was dumb and she wasn’t going to do it but then she decides to do it anyway. She ask for a friend like she had as a child and for a man who would treat her well. Then a strange thing happens the next day.

I liked Lindy and Will and thought they made a cute couple. I thought this was just a sweet romance and as always just a fun Christmas story and that is what you always get with a Debbie Macomber Christmas book!

I think my one complaint might be that I felt the ending was quite rushed, other than that I really enjoyed it.
